Warhammer 40,000: Darktide will be released soon, giving fans everywhere access to developer Fatshark’s latest take on the enormous multimedia IP. Fans will want to try out the different weaponry in the game, many of which come from the rich canon of the Warhammer 40K franchise, as they cooperate with their allies to decimate waves of enemies. Darktide is harsh, the game’s style calls for the terrible Meltagun, a heat-based weapon from the 40K universe. However, it is fair to wonder if you even can use the Meltagun in Warhammer 40k: Darktide.
Can you Get the Meltagun?
The Meltagun has not been confirmed to be in Warhammer 40,000: Darktide as a playable weapon at this time. So, your wish to unleash murder with the Meltagun will remain a pipe dream no matter how high a level you achieve or how many penances you finish.
However, a recent data mine indicates that the Meltagun is included in Darktide’s code, thus it’s not entirely out of the game. While we don’t know for sure, this could indicate that Fatshark plans to add the Meltagun to the game in some future update.
What is the Meltagun?
Meltaguns are well-known among players of Warhammer 40,000 for their ability to quickly and easily melt foes’ armor with a concentrated beam of heat. Both Space Marines and especially the Astra Militarum’s warriors serve as common wielders of the Meltagun. Because Warhammer 40K: Darktide prominently highlights the Astra Militarum as a key faction, having the gun in Warhammer 40K: Darktide is an obvious necessity for the fans of the game.
Players of Warhammer 40,000: Darktide will have to use other weapons until Fatshark put a likely Meltagun update out there. The Meltagun is not the only heat-based weapon in the game, and it is possible that one of the other weapons may serve as a temporary replacement.
