Warhammer 40,000: Darktide’s Hotfix 1.2.21

Warhammer 40,000: Darktide has received 1.2.21, introducing several crucial changes and bug fixes to enhance gameplay.

The update tweaked fire damage values, particularly from enemy Scab Bombers and Scab/Tox Flamers. The tick interval for fire damage has been changed from 0.2 seconds to 0.35 seconds. Moreover, the damage scale per tick has been modified to ensure a slower ramp-up in intensity, making fire surfaces dangerous only over prolonged exposure.

Warhammer 40,000: Darktide’s Hotfix 1.2.21

  • Tweaked the damage values of fire damage from enemy Scab Bombers and Scab/Tox Flamers
    • Tick interval changed from 0.2 to 0.35.
    • Damage scale per tick from [1, 1.25, 1.5, 2.0, 2.25, 2.5, 3.0, 3.25, 3.5} to {1, 1, 1, 1.25, 1.25, 1.3, 1.35, 1.5, 1.5, 1.6, 1.75, 2.0, 2.25, 2.5, 3.0, 3.0, 3.25].
Dev Note:
The speed and intensity of the damage ramp up will now be much slower. Fire surfaces will remain very dangerous, but only when standing over them for a prolonged amount of time.


  • Fixed a crash which could happen when browsing the Social menu.
  • Fixed a crash which could happen when using or swapping Stimm items.
  • Fixed a crash which could occur when attacking the tanks in the Warren 6-19 mission finale with a Zealot Artemia Mk III Purgation Flamer.
  • Fixed an issue with the Cadia Mk XIIIg Assault Chainsword where the Impact inflicted by activated sawing attacks was lower than intended.
Dev Note:
Now the values will be aligned to the Cadia Mk IV Assault Chainsword.
  • Fixed an issue where having a Grimoire equipped would prevent players from picking up Stimms.
  • Fixed an issue where the portrait picture of the player was not updated immediately after performing changes in the Mourningstar.
  • Fixed an issue where some of the new foldable shovels introduced in The Traitor Curse Part 2 Anniversary Update were missing attack trail visual effects:
    • Munitorum Mk III Sapper Shovel
    • Munitorum Mk VII Sapper Shovel.
  • Fixed an issue where the Ogryn “Convict Garb (all variations)” upper body cosmetics would display a black shoulder patch instead of the intended colour.
  • Tweaked the logic for interaction points in the Mourningstar (e.g. Mission Board, Shrine of the Omnissiah).
    • The interaction will now be more easily accessed without having to point the camera in a very specific direction.
  • Added a small rev motor sound to the Orestes Mk XII Assault Chainaxe light attacks.
