Warhammer 40k Darktide - Best Class to start with

If you want to find out what is the best operative in Warhammer 40,000: Darktide, you have come to the right place. Here we will discuss this topic.

The pre-order beta launch of the game Warhammer 40,000: Darktide started today. Many gamers have been waiting impatiently for this title. Both the universe and the game itself have plenty of fans. Here we will discuss which class is the best.

If you are curious about other Darktide topics, please see our guide - Warhammer 40K: Darktide Guide.


There are (at the moment) 4 classes in Darktide:

  1. Veteran Sharpshooter – specialises in the elimination of heavily armoured enemies.
  2. Zealot Preacher – fights in close quarters and becomes stronger with decreasing health.
  3. Psyker Psykinetic – a class of "mages", they can inflict powerful damage to single enemies and have crowd control skills.
  4. Ogryn Skullbreaker – A tank that is able to survive a lot. His job is to cover the whole team.

Best Class to start with

Depending on what you want the class to be used for, the answer to the question of who is best will vary. Each character has its own strengths and weaknesses. In our opinion, however, a very good choice to start with is the Ogryn. This character is resilient and can take a lot of hits. This makes the player's mistakes less threatening in his case.

Furthermore, as we learned from the graphics provided by the developers, it was with this character's weapon that the most enemies were killed during the closed beta. This is extremely impressive given that it was not the most frequently chosen weapon. It shows that this fighter can not only endure a lot, but also kill effectively.
