Tips for the tip throne: Things you should know about Warhammer 40K: Darktide

Warhammer 40,000: Darktide is currently in beta, accessible to anyone who preordered it. That means everything about it is subject to change. Quite a lot of change, if the roadmap to launch is anything to go by. Still, plenty of people are playing it already and we’re among them. Here are some of the potentially heretical things we’ve learned already that’ll help you survive in Tertium Hive, at least for a little longer than you would otherwise.

You can buy items you can’t use 

Jody Macgregor, Weekend/AU Editor: If there’s something for sale in the armory exchange but it’s grayed-out, that means it’s beyond your current trust level and can’t be wielded. That doesn’t mean you can’t buy it. If you see some real sweet kit and don’t want to risk it being cycled out of the shop (which refreshes every hour) before you can earn enough tokens to afford it, bag that thing now.
