How to Fix Warp Battery Penance Not Working in Warhammer 40K: Darktide

The Warp Battery must not be fully charged.

Warhammer 40K: Darktide’s penances are hard enough as is, and bugs with them don’t do you any favors. Finally completing a hard-earned challenge just for it to not give you your reward is a frustrating feeling, and with the Psyker’s challenges, their difficulty makes it extra frustrating. For one of the Psyker’s penances, Warp Battery, this appears to be the case, though a fix is thankfully available, sort of. Here’s how to fix the Warp Battery penance not working in Warhammer 40K: Darktide.

Why is the Warp Battery Penance Bugged in Darktide?

When first checking the penance, you’ll have noticed that the penance lists Malice as the difficulty needed, yet Malice is not capitalized like every other difficulty level in the penance menu. What you might not realize is that’s a colossal typo from Fatshark, and the difficulty should be Heresy. That’s why you’ll notice that you don’t have your highest-reached seconds listed with the 0/300 bar on the penance itself. If you attempt it with Heresy active, you’ll notice the progress is being tracked (if you don’t complete it outright).

It’s a rather frustrating bug, we have to admit. An honest mistake though between the teams who designed the functionality for the penance and the teams who did the visuals and writing for each penance. That doesn’t stop the time you likely wasted trying to get the penance yourself. If you’re having trouble getting the challenge completed on its own we have an (updated) guide which you can find at the related link below.
