Warhammer 40K: Darktide – How to Complete the Vantage Point Penance & Shocking Stuff Achievement

This guide will show you how to complete the Vantage Point Penance and the Shocking Stuff Achievements in Warhammer 40K: Darktide.

How to Finish Vantage Point in Darktide

At the time of writing, completing The Vantage Point penance is impossible. This is due to the fact that not all of the necessary content is currently available.

Once the game has been released, the process becomes much simpler. The challenge is completed by completing one of each of the seven mission types. You can tell the difference based on the Primary Objective of each mission, as each mission in the Mission Terminal will have a different symbol depending on the mission type. Continue doing different ones, and you should have no trouble finishing the challenge.

If you weren’t already aware, each class has a similar penance. This means you’ll have to repeat the process four times if you want a portrait frame for each of your four classes. That may sound annoying, but it’s simply a matter of time.

How to Complete the Shocking Stuff Penance in Darktide

To unlock the Shocking Stuff achievement, you need to kill 50 enemies stunned by your grenades, within 10 seconds. As a result, you’ll need weapons and feats that provide the most DPS across multiple enemies. For this, we recommend the following loadout:

  • Primary Weapon: Catachan Mk IV “Devil’s Claw” Sword
  • Secondary Weapon: Artemia Mk III Purgation Flamer

The Flamer is the best range weapon on this list, with the ability to deal massive AOE damage. If you have a weapon you prefer for cleaving, we suggest using that. However, the Devil’s Claw’s cleave makes it ideal for this challenge in our opinion.

Here are some suggestions for feats:

  • Level 5: Enemies Within, Enemies Without
  • Level 10: Retribution/Punishment
  • Level 15: Inspiring Excoriation
  • Level 20: Thy Wrath Be Swift
  • Level 25: Emperor’s Executioner/Rising Conviction
  • Level 30: Fury of the Faithful

As you can see, several of the feats we chose are adaptable to the situation. Level 10s should be chosen based on how at ease you are at low health, whereas level 25s should be chosen purely on personal preference. In any case, the level 30 talent will be nearly essential if you want to complete this challenge.
