Another resource to add to the pile.

Warhammer 40K: Darktide Diamantine

Warhammer 40K: Darktide makes sure to reward players for exploring off the beaten path with resources to assist in the mission. This could be ammo, a med pack, an ammo pack, or even a power cell for a nearby Medicae station. As such, exploring the map and finding every resource can be a massive help, including one resource that goes well beyond any given mission. Here is what Diamantine is in Warhammer 40K: Darktide.

What Does Diamantine Do in Darktide?

You likely first noticed this resource when out on a mission, either from a random place on the ground or through a nearby chest. The resource will have either been a small or large stash and at the end of the mission, will reward you with a small amount of Diamantine alongside any of the Plasteel you found as well. It’ll come as no surprise then that this resource is used in the same way Plasteel is.

When entering the Mourningstar, head directly to the right until you come upon the door towards the tutorials and the Meat Grinder. Directly across from that, you’ll find the Shrine of the Omnissiah, along with Hadron, ready to deliver you demeaning quotes as usual. Interacting with the kiosk allows you to (currently) Consecrate a piece of gear from blue to purple or purple to orange. This will improve the gear’s quality, but won’t come cheap. It requires a healthy helping of Plasteel and a smaller but significant amount of, you guessed it, Diamantine.

If you’re looking to farm Diamantine in Darktide, there isn’t too much to farming it. The best way to farm it comes as simple as checking every corner of whatever missions you’re playing. There are a lot of spawns so you’ll need to be persistent, but you’ll eventually have enough. It’ll be a good rule of thumb to hunt around each mission you play whether you’re needing Diamantine or not. It will save you plenty of time in the long run.
