Darktide - Penances List [Update 1.0]; Get Cosmetics!

On this page you will learn all about Penances in Darktide. You will find out how to get them. You will also unlock Cosmetics.

Every day, tens of thousands of players play Warhammer 40,000: Darktide. Even though there has not yet been an official launch of this production. Therefore, it is worth discussing its most important mechanics. In this article, we will tell you all about Penances.

It is worth noting that Warhammer 40K: Darktide is still under development, so the following list of Penances may become outdated in the future.

If you are curious about other Darktide topics, please see our guide - Warhammer 40K: Darktide Guide.

Basic Information

Penances are a kind of in-game achievement. You receive Penance Points for them. Unfortunately, at the moment they mainly serve as a measure of your progress. However, this does not mean that you get nothing for your efforts. Many Penances will bring you Cosmetics and Trinkets as a reward.

We have provided a list of all the Penances below. You will unlock them for accomplishments in the game - defeating opponents, various exceptional behaviours and proving your skills. You may notice that some Penances have numbers next to them. This means that the achievement in question has levels.

For Penances with multiple stages, the rewards change as you progress. For example, if an achievement starts with an upper body as a reward for the first level, for the next one you can get a lower body.
