Warhammer 40k Darktide Mission types list

Seven missions are featured in Darktide, but if you are playing during the Pre-Order Beta, some might not be available. Regardless, these missions come in various types and feature unique objectives. Some mission types can also have side objectives, such as finding Grimoires or Scriptures, while others only appear on certain maps.

  • Strike
    • Objective: Strike missions usually require players to disrupt enemy attacks. This translates to clearing demonic growths or stopping other themed attacks. 
  • Disruption
    • Objective: The Disruption mission tasks players with stopping various Chaos plots. 
  • Investigation
    • Objective: Investigation missions task players with scanning various objects using a servo-skull. You can also complete an achievement by achieving a Data Interrogation without an incorrect Auspex entry.
  • Espionage
    • Objective: This mission is a Work In Progress as we haven't encountered this mission yet in the Beta. We imagine the objective based on the name will include feeding false information to Chaos forces.
    •  Assassination
      • Objective: The Assassination missions revolve around killing a notable Chaos leader or target. Usually, this means there is a boss battle at the end of the mission, like Captain Henrik Turnat.
    • Repair
      • Objective: The Repair mission tasks players with repairing a key piece of equipment or power systems. 
    • Raid
      • Objective: Raid missions usually have players collecting various resources from supply depots. 

Overall there are a wide variety of missions to choose from in Darktide. You may not encounter some missions in either the Beta or full release, as missions are on a rotation cycle. Every hour or so, new missions with side objectives and special events will appear on the map, so check back later if there is a particular mission you want to complete. You can also complete a Penance called the Vantage point for the Sharpshooter class by playing one of each mission in the game.
