How to finish On Overwatch Penance in Warhammer 40k Darktide?

Finishing On Overwatch Penance in Warhammer 40k Darktide requires the player to take no melee damage during a mission. This Penance is one of the hardest in the game, and we recommend that you don't try it until you have a level 30 Veteran. Here is a list of recommendable feats to help you achieve this:

  • Level 5: At Arm’s Length
  • Level 10: Sniper
  • Level 15: Covering Fire
  • Level 20: Duck and Dive/Camo Expert
  • Level 25: One After Another
  • Level 30: Counterfire

To accomplish this Penance, teamwork is a key factor. Your team will act as your bodyguards during the mission. To make a defensive wall for yourself, we recommend having a Zealot and an Ogryn on your team. Bringing a Flamer on the team is a good strategy because of its crowd control. An automatic rifle such as a Recon Lasgun would also be good for clearing out large swathes of enemy hordes. Always try to keep the enemies away from you as much as possible to minimize the risk of failing.
