Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate Daemonhunters Cheats and Tips


Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate Daemonhunters Cheats and Tips


Play The Tutorial

As obvious as this may seem, playing the tutorial is an absolute must. It doesn’t matter how good you are at these games, or how many hours you’ve pumped into the genre. Heck, it doesn’t even matter if your pride is wounded by having to be walked through the basics.

The tutorial in Chaos Gate is very good and covers everything you need to know about the combat mechanics, and what differentiates this game, from its peers. Skipping it just isn’t advised on a first playthrough.

Not only that, there are some awesome animationscutscenes, and story snippets scattered throughout, which are all worth a gander.

Set Your Difficulty Wisely

Chaos Gate is a hard game, some would even go as far as saying it’s rather spicey. As with the tutorial, your difficulty selection is important, and your pride shouldn’t be the determining factor here. Chaos Gate will whoop you rotten if you don’t learn fast, and cranking that dial down a bit can make things go a bit smoother.

Merciful is the easiest of the bunch and is our recommended starting point for anyone who is a bit rusty or downright new to the genre. Standard and Ruthless are great for people with more experience, and Legendary is for the players who want to feel pain.

Oh, avoid Grand Master Mode until a second (or third…) playthrough.





Death Is Not The End – Until It is

As hard as Chaos Gate can be, death is not the end, and taking a few potshots here and there, or being floored from time to time isn’t the end of the world. The game operates on a Resilience system, and every character has a Resilience stat.

When a Knight gets downed, their Resilience drops. If it hits zero, well, that’s when death is real. There are places you can plonk your dead hidden in the construction menu, but for the most part, dead is dead. Death comes even quicker on Legendary because your Knights start with the Resilience of a paper towel.

Have Backup Squads

It may be tempting to get attached to your initial team of Grey Knights. I mean, they likely took you through a bunch of missions, they are starting to level up a bit, and, well, they are pretty darn awesome. Here’s the thing though – you can’t use them for every mission, and if you do, you might just lose them for good.

Having backup squads, and squad members who can fill in lets you do more missions without having to wait for your wounds to heal to be at peak effectiveness. It lets you experiment with different builds and squad compositions. Sure, the default is effective, but sometimes running a full squad of Terminators is just what the doctor ordered.

Recruit new members, keep swapping them in when you can and hold back the tide of Chaos.

Build Your Knights Carefully
