Basic information

To unlock Just a Flesh Wound you must complete as a Zealot Preacher a mission of Heresy Threat or higher in under 10 minutes, with less than one Wound remaining for 75% of the time.

This means you have to approach a very difficult task, be on the brink of death by the end of it, and on top of that, maintain this state for most of the game. It raises many problems. But there is one simple solution - we tell you about it below.

How to Complete Just a Flesh Wound

Please note: the following method of unlocking this achievement may not be what the developers originally intended. This means that a patch may come in in the future that will block the ability to get Just a Flesh Wound Penance in this way. Keep this in mind.

The conditions for unlocking Just a Flesh Wound are difficult, but only in theory. It turns out that players easily manage to complete this achievement by dying! All you need to do is start the game on Heresy Threat or higher. Then receive damage so that you have less than one wound left. Continue to survive long enough to spend 75% of the game time in this agonal state. After that, you and your companions must die. Yes, "complete mission" also counts if everyone dies. Remember that you must do the above in less than 10 minutes.

Of course, you can also make Just a Flesh Wound using the traditional method. But for this you will need the best weapons and a good team. Good luck!


For obvious reasons, your team needs to know what you want to do. If you are playing with bots, then let them die. However, if there are real people in your squad, things start to get more complicated. Not everyone may be happy with the offer of a quick death. Therefore, it is best to approach this achievement with friends.
