Warhammer 40K: Darktide Penance Mission Rewards

Deck out your Warhammer Darktide character with all the rewards from completing Penance missions.
Warhammer 40K: Darktide Penance Mission Rewards
Warhammer 40,000: Darktide

By Volkmar! Warhammer 40K: Darktide has finally descended upon us, and with it comes a new mission and quest mechanic called Penances. In Warhammer 40K, Penance missions are quests that players can complete for various rewards, including new gear, Penance Points, cosmetics, and achievements. If you’ve seen other players running around with cool-looking gear, it’s more than probable it’s from completing class-specific Penance missions in the game.

In addition to gaining loot from random Emporer drops after a mission, Penances are the main way you’ll acquire cosmetics to make your character stand out. You’ll gain access to higher-tier cosmetics, including helms, as you level up in Darktide.

All Penance Missions and Rewards in Warhammer 40K: Darktide

There are different quests for different types of Penance missions. These categories dictate which kind of missions you need to complete to gain the reward. In addition to the missions and rewards below, there are also class-specific missions listed below.

In Warhammer 40K: Darktide, the Penance missions include: 

  • Account 
  • Class
  • Heretics
  • Missions
  • Offensive
  • Defensive
  • Team

Many Penances in Darktide have multiple levels you can complete, giving more rewards for each level. This means that even if you complete a Penance, there will probably be an additional level to complete. To access Penances, go to your Main Menu and then click the Penance button.

What are Penance Points Used For?

Currently, in the pre-launch open beta, there is no use for Penance Points in Darktide. When the full game releases, the developers, Fatshark, may implement a store where you can trade your points for different cosmetics. Previous to the game’s launch, the developers said there would be more than 1 currency and that the premium currency could be used for cosmetics, so we’re interested to see what players will be able to spend their Penance Points on.

We will update this section upon the full game release.
