Warhammer 40K: Darktide is a bloody game of heretical genocide as you rampage onwards. There is scarcely a better operator for bloody rampages than the Zealot, which is evident in the way they charge forth and slaughter until they can slaughter no more. If you need a little more convincing, then here is a run-down of all the Zealot’s abilities and weaponry in Warhammer 40K: Darktide.

Zealot abilities in Warhammer 40K: Darktide

The Zealot: Preacher focuses on being on the front lines, severing foes through a burning rage. Here is a list of all the Zealot’s abilities that allow them to do that:


Chastise the Wicked: Charge forwards, replenishing 50% toughness and increasing the damage of the next melee hit by 25%.


Stun Grenade: Stuns and disorientates enemies within the radius.


The Emperor’s Will: +7% Toughness damage reduction to all allies within coherency.


Swift Exorcism: +10% melee attack speed.

Martyrdom: +5 damage for each 15 missing health, stacks up to three.

Until Death: Every 90 seconds, taking damage that would kill you, instead gain invulnerability for 5 seconds.
