Best Zealot Preacher Build in Warhammer 40k Darktide

What do I bring to the team? Repentance, of course!

Warhammer 40k Darktide lets players choose from four character classes to play. All four classes have a distinct playstyle attached to them. The Ogre Skullbreaker is a lumbering tank and the bulwark of your line. Veteran Sharpshooter is a ranged firepower provider, while Psyker brings powers of the Warp into the mix. The Zealot Preacher brings a good mix of firepower and melee capability and has a unique playstyle.

The most effective loadout for Zealot Preacher in Warhammer 40k Darktide

The most effective loadout for the Zealot Preacher in Warhammer 40k Darktide would be the one that complements their position in the team, which is not clearly defined at first glance. They belong somewhere in between the Ogryn Skullbreaker and Veteran Sharpshooter. Here is the best weapon build for the Zealot Preacher:

  • Melee weapon: Thunder Hammer/Eviscerator
  • Ranged weapon: Boltgun/Flamer

The Zealot Preacher truly is a jack of all trades, as they can provide very serious firepower with the Boltgun or crowd control with the Flamer. At the same time, they can hold their own in melee and provide a large source of single-target damage with the Thunder Hammer or rip multiple opponents to shreds with their Eviscerator.

Our choice for Feats is built around the weapons that will be used and their adaptability to the team. Here is the best Feats combination we found for the Zealot Preacher.

  • Level 5: Enemies Within, Enemies Without
  • Level 10: Punishment
  • Level 15: Inspiring Excoriation
  • Level 20: Thy Wrath Be Swift
  • Level 25: Rising Conviction
  • Level 30: Fury of the Faithful

The selected choice of feats lets you play primarily close range while still being able to take out opponents with the Flamer. Alternatively, if you would prefer to build your Zealot with the Boltgun, you can take the Emperor’s Executioner on Level 25.
