What is the Warp Resistance Stat in Warhammer 40K: Darktide? – Answered

Resisting the Warp is key to success as a Psyker.

Warhammer 40K: Darktide has seemingly endless stats for its weapons, items, and feats, the majority of which are hard to understand off the name alone. Stats such as both Finesse and Rending don’t make much sense on paper but, once learned, do let you understand the difference between a weapon with a higher and lower Rating. One such stat comes exclusively for the Psyker and is thankfully easy to understand. Here’s what the Warp Resistance stat is in Warhammer 40K: Darktide.

What Does Warp Resistance Mean in Darktide?

As this weapon stat is exclusive to the Psyker, only weapons that are unique to it will have this stat. This also doesn’t include the Force Sword, leaving all four Force Staffs (Trauma, Surge, Voidstrike, and Purgatus) with the stat applied by default. These join other stats such as Charge Speed and Quell Speed for either of those weapons, which affect the charging of a Force Staff and the ability to quell Peril.

The Warp Resistance stat is similar to Quell Speed in that it helps reduce Peril, though this stat lowers the Peril requirement for using abilities. A staff with a high Warp Resistance stat will use far less Peril than a staff with low Warp Resistance, meaning you can get your abilities off much faster. It’s arguably one of the best stats on the various staffs and has the most noticeable benefit.

Learning how to use Force Staffs effectively is a major part of getting the most out of your Psyker build. They’re the best weapons the class has, and offer a lot of damage either through horde-clearing or specialist/elite-killing depending on your staff choice. While we prefer the Voidstrike staff over the other three for its explosive properties and high burst damage, you’ll likely do well with any staff you want.
