The most effective loadout for Veteran Sharpshooter in Warhammer 40k Darktide

The loadout that is most effective for the Veteran Sharpshooter in Warhammer 40k Darktide is primarily based on your choice of a ranged weapon. With Ogryn Skullbreaker and the Zealot Preacher's horde clearing capabilities, you should be focusing on providing ranged firepower. You will need an effective melee weapon for dealing with specials and elites as well, and Veteran Sharpshooter has a fine selection of Power Swords and Chain Swords for the job. Here is the best weapon build for the Veteran Sharpshooter:

  • Melee weapon: Power Sword/Chain Sword
  • Ranged weapon: Recon Lasgun/Boltgun

We feel that, out of all Lasgun configurations, Recon Lasgun is the most optimal for general use on the Veteran Sharpshooter. It provides the best rate of fire thanks to its Rapid Fire trait that enables it to be fired in full auto. A large ammo reserve means you will get more use out of it before it runs out. You will have flexibility in choosing the melee weapon, as both the Power Sword and Chain Sword work very well. It's all about personal preference and particular weapon perks.

We have assembled the following list for the best Feats on the Veteran Sharpshooter:

  • Level 5: Exhilarating Takedown
  • Level 10: Tactical Reload
  • Level 15: Bio-Optic Targeting
  • Level 20: Unwavering Focus
  • Level 25: One After Another
  • Level 30: Counterfire

The focus of this list is around fighting the elites and bosses. Both the Ogryn Skullbreaker and Zealot Preacher should take care of the Hordes. The Tactical Reload is always a great choice on Level 10 because it allows you to keep firing while the fighting gets intense. You generally don't want to spend too much time reloading.
