New weapon marks have been added to Warhammer 40,000: Darktide, courtesy of the Tools of War update.

If you love using the Psyker class in Darktide, then you should try the new Deimos Mk IV Blaze Force Sword. This weapon has high single-target damage and fast attack speed for decimating enemies in no time.

Another weapon mark worth mentioning is the new Agripinaa Mk VII Combat Shotgun. This is a relatively accurate long-range shotgun with a considerable fire rate. Aim for the weak spot when using this weapon to maximize its damage potential.

You can find the other new weapon marks below:

  • Illisi Mk V Blaze Force Sword: Force Sword with a focus on horde management. When charged with Warp Energy it cuts through groups of enemies with increased power.
  • "Brunt's Pride" Mk II Bully Club: A more basic Vanguard and Relentless move set that can be mixed up with slaps and punches.
  • "Brunt's Basher" Mk IIIb Bully Club: Send opponents flying with tanky uppercut swings or strike them down with lethal Strikedown combos.
  • Munitorum Mk VI Power Sword: A Power Sword with a more varied moveset.
  • Ironhelm Mk IV Thunder Hammer: A Thunderhammer slightly more capable of dealing with several enemies. It can cleave through multiple light enemies before dealing the obliterating blow while activated.
  • Gorgonum Mk IV Twin-Linked Heavy Stubber: An even heavier Heavy Stubber. Hard hitting, slow rate of fire.
  • Achlys Mk VII Twin-Linked Heavy Stubber: A relatively light twin-linked Heavy Stubber that has increased mobility and is preferably used at a shorter range.
  • Kantrael Mk IX Combat Shotgun: A powerful and aggressive Combat Shotgun with a wide spread and high damage. It can also be loaded with an incendiary round that sets enemies ablaze.

In addition, weapon blessings now have their icons displayed during gameplay found in the row where the buff icons are. Take note that you’ll only see Blessings that have a set duration to indicate that they’re active. The developers decided not to display Blessings that provide passive buffs since they’re always active anyway. This is also to prevent the interface from being cluttered.

You can find more information about Blessing icons below:

  • Buffs
    • Negative buffs (debuffs) now appear in a separate row with a red frame, and some have new icons.
  • HUD
    • Damage over time effects like bleeding, fire, or Soulblaze should now give red hitmarkers on the crosshair when such an effect kills an enemy.
  • Feats
    • Buff icons for various feats now always show numbers when applicable.
    • Ogryn Skullbreaker feat "Raging Bull" now shows a buff icon while active.
    • Psyker Psykinetic feat "Kinetic Deflection" now shows a buff icon while active.
    • Psyker Psykinetic feat "Mind in Motion" now shows a buff icon while active.
    • Veteran Sharpshooter feat "Camo Expert" now shows a buff icon while active.
    • Veteran Sharpshooter feat "Deadshot" now shows a buff icon while active with a duration for how long the feat can be active.
    • Veteran Sharpshooter feat "Demolition Stockpile" now shows a buff icon that indicates the duration until the next grenade is replenished.
    • Zealot Preacher feat "Faith Restores All" now shows a buff icon with a duration for how long damage is recuperated.
