Warhammer 40K Darktide challenges players with demanding challenges to complete like the Deadeye Penance. Most of these require some high-level skill and a lot of time put into the game. They can often seem unachievable or require a lot of missions to be done. When it comes to the Deadeye Penance, this one requires you to be on point with your aim and land shots accurately. Let’s learn how we can complete this Penance.
How to Complete the Deadeye Penance in Warhammer 40K Darktide
First things first, you need to be at least level 30 to even attempt this Penace. It is incredibly difficult even on that level so it’s pretty much impossible before that. You need any of the level 30 feats for Sharpshooter in order to refresh the cooldown of your volley Fire which is essential for this Penace to be completed. The objective required to complete this penance is to get five kills on highlighted enemies by hitting only their weak spots. You also need to be using a weapon’s Secondary Action on Heresy (difficulty four) or higher. All of this is to be done within a single use of Volley Fire which is why you need that level 30 feat to refresh its cooldown.
It is advisable to get a weapon that can accurately hit the weak spots and not hit anything else. Avoid fully automatic weapons and burst weapons. Despite being single-shot weapons, even Laspistol or Plasma gun is not advisable since they lack the precision required. Some good choices would be something like a Lasgun due to it being semi-automatic and accurate. Helbore Lasguns are good too with the charged shots on them.
