Warhammer 40K: How To Unlock The Power Sword

Warhammer 40K: Darktide is a new first-person shooter and adventure game that is currently available in pre-order beta for a limited number of players who pre-ordered the title. The game is set in the popular Warhammer 40,000 universe and offers lots of new maps, weapons and interesting characters for players to enjoy.

One of the most impressive things about the Warhammer games is the variety of weapons that players can use. And in Warhammer 40K: Darktide, it’s really impressive what they’ve done. To start off, players have a default sword and dagger but will unlock and find more later on in the game. So in this article, we’ll be guiding players on how to unlock the Power Sword in Warhammer 40K: Darktide.

Despite bringing in some new weapons, there are also odd melee weapons as well, such as the chainsword and the duelling sword. The Power Sword on the other hand, is exclusively available to the Veteran class and can only be unlocked by reaching trust level 18.


And like many other weapons in Warhammer 40K: Darktide, the Power Sword is a powerful weapon that can bring even some of the toughest enemies down in just the right time. As far as usage goes, it’s also pretty odd using the Power Sword in Warhammer 40K: Darktide.

Players will have regular light and heavy attacks, just like with any other melee weapon and can block by using right click. While all these might seem like basic stuff, things pick up when players use the special action with the Power Sword which gives it additional damage. When using the special action, the weapon also has more versatility to it when used.

In many cases, especially when a player isn’t battling Unyielding Enemies or Elites, they ought to power up their Power Sword and aim for at least three light swings to deal some good damage.

And when battling Elites, players should dodge and power up the Power Sword into a heavy attack if they can. While this means the weapon will become slightly difficult to use, it does provide a very rewarding attack pattern.

So that’s all we have for you on how to unlock the Power Sword in Warhammer 40K: Darktide. The game is currently available for the pre-order beta with a global launch scheduled to release in late November 2022.
