For a few days now, many fans have been struggling with the achievements in Warhammer 40,000: Darktide. Some of them are really difficult and require a lot of work from players. A notable one here is the Cliffhanger Penance and, at the same time, achievement. In this article, we will tell you how to obtain them

In the pre-release version, this Penance was much harder to obtain - as in the case of the achievement, you had to drop as many as 20 enemies into the abyss within 2 seconds.

Basic information

You can only get the Cliffhanger by playing as Psykinetic. This is no coincidence, as it is the skill of this class (Psykinetic’s Wrath) that is perfectly suited to this task. To unlock this Penance you need to drop 7 enemies into the abyss within 2 seconds using this very skill. To unlock the Steam achievement you must do the same but with 20 enemies. This raises two main issues - the team and the location. We'll talk about them here.

For the achievement to be doable at all you need a suitable location. Narrow bridges, from which you can easily drop your opponents, are best suited for this. We can name two maps that are ideal for this - Vigil Station Oblivium and Chasm Logistratum. You need to collect enough enemies on the bridges, so it is best to wait for a wave. Lure them to the right place with live bait – yourself. This way you will have enemies in abundance to drop.

Remember that the available tasks change periodically. Therefore, if you do not manage to find the locations you need, simply come back later. You can learn more about missions hereWarhammer 40K: Darktide - All Mission Types; Learn about Disruption.


Another issue is your team. You need to warn your squad members of your intentions. Otherwise, they will run through the right location, kill enemies and you will have no one to drop or split the horde because they will be standing in the wrong places. Co-operation in this achievement is extremely important. It is best approached with friends.
