Every mission type in Warhammer 40k: Darktide

There are a total of seven mission types in Warhammer 40k: Darktide, each with their own unique objectives and tasks for players to complete, as well as various challenges to overcome. The mission types are:

  • Assassination – These missions involve taking down a Chaos leader at the end of a mission and require you to fight your way to their lair and use teamwork to kill the boss.
  • Disruption – Players are tasked with disrupting and hindering enemy plans by causing trouble and sabotaging their operations, such as destroying equipment.
  • Espionage – These missions require players to infiltrate an area and tamper with enemy intel to give them false information, hindering their plans and progress.
  • Investigation – Using a servo-skull, players scan various items and objects to gain intel, such as details on new plague stains.

  • Raid – Raid missions require players to make their way through levels to collect resources like ammo from a supply depot, whilst fighting off the hordes of Chaos as they go.
  • Repair – This mission type tasks players with repairing a key system or piece of equipment, such as cooling a power system. Here players need to work together to manage both the enemies and the tasks at hand.
  • Strike – These missions are the most straightforward and involve you clearing out a level of Chaos forces attacking Tertium, the hive city where the game takes place.

Some of these mission types can take place on several of the game’s maps. Additionally, certain maps can have multiple mission types, meaning you can do the same level for two different missions, and both would be different experiences.
