In Warhammer 40,000: Darktide you are able to control one of the available character classes. Among them is the Veteran Sharpshooter. Below you will find a sample build for this class.

Of course, you must bear in mind that the news was based on a game which is currently in pre-order beta. The following information is therefore still subject to change.

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

Veteran Sharpshooter - class description

Veteran Sharpshooter is an excellently trained unit that specializes in long-range combat. It has special passive bonuses that reward such playstyle:

  1. 15% bonus to damage inflicted on weak points;
  2. Increased amount of ammunition carried.

You must also bear in mind that you have at your disposal the ability called Volley Fire, which enables you to immediately switch to a ranged combat position. Then, before 4 seconds, the character targets non-Ogryn Elites units and deals 50% more damage.

If you are interested in other character classes, you can find details about them here.

Veteran Sharpshooter - weapons

Initially representatives of this class carry a standard-issue Munitorum Sapper Shovel for close combat and a Kantrael Mk VII Lasgun for ranged clashes. In addition, they also carry a Frag Grenade, which deals damage to enemies within its range.

As for the best possible weapons for the Veteran Sharpshooter, on the other hand, a lot depends on what situation you want to excel in. If you plan to deal a lot of damage to elite opponents then the best choice would be the Plasma Gun. In case you want to be effective against hordes of opponents then you should choose the MG Ia Infantry Lasgun. On the other hand, when it comes to weapons for close combat, here you can choose according to your preferences, as you won't be using it too often either way.

Veteran Sharpshooter - sample build

When designing a build for Veteran Sharpshooter, you must keep in mind that in the case of this class it is difficult to create a build that benefits a specific type of gameplay.

The example build is as follows:

  1. At Level 5: At Arms Length - Replenishes 5% of your stamina per second if you are farther than 8 meters from an opponent;
  2. At Level 10: Demolition Stockpile - Restores one grenade every 60 seconds;
  3. At Level 15: Bio-Optic Targeting - Volley Fire marks allied non-Ogryn Elites targets as priority;
  4. At level 20: Camo Expert - when you stand still, the likelihood of an opponent taking you as a target decreases;
  5. At level 25: Deadshot - when using the weapon's alternate firing mode, you gain a +25% chance of dealing critical damage and +60% stability when aiming. At the same time, each shot consumes 10% less stamina.
  6. At level 30: Counterfire - when using Volley Fire, you gain a 25% bonus to damage to weak points. The skill also marks Scab Shooters as priority targets.

Veteran Sharpshooter - Curios

Curios also play an important role for this class. Thanks to them you are able to increase the effectiveness of your character. In the case of Veteran Sharpshooter, the best items are those that affect health regeneration or provide resistance to damage.
