Here’s where to find the Heavy Bolter.

Where to Find Heavy Bolter in Warhammer 40,000 Boltgun

Players can find the Heavy Bolter on the Martyrs Crossing level in the middle of the bridge before completing the level. There will be numerous Chaos Legion spawns in the area, which you’ll have to get through to get the Heavy Bolter.

The Heavy Bolter can hold 250 rounds of ammunition. To shoot it, hold down the fire button. It takes about a second to wind up and start firing, but once it does, you can hold down the fire button for a continual volley of shots. 

The weapon is great for multiple-target damage, as its fast fire rate and high dmg output can melt most monsters quickly. You can also use it to beam a single-target enemy’s head, as the gun is pretty accurate, even at a distance. The Heavy Bolter can also be found on subsequent levels throughout your playthrough, but this is the first location where you can get it.

Many items, powerups, and weapons may be located in areas you don’t need to traverse, so checking every nook and cranny to find secret weapons is important. Discovering the game’s different weapons will equip you with what you need to burn through the Chaos Legion and become the baddest Space Marine this side of the universe.
