Warhammer 40,000: Darktide – How to Defeat Orthus

Tips for Defeating Orthus on Damnation / Hard Mode

Psyker with shield is a big help. Basically shuts down the ranged boss and really useful to limit the LoS of ranged mobs.

a good anti armor solution is a must. You need to be dealing with the flak ragers, crushers, and maulers ASAP. For me, this was a combination of a braced auto (w/ chastise) and the mk15 eviscerator. Revolver specifically was not adequate.

Someone with stealth to pick people up is really helpful. Each boss will basically make it impossible for one person each to do this, so there’s only ever one person who can res normally. If they’re busy with a crusher or something, you just can’t do it. Being able to force the res with stealth is really useful.

Focusing down the ranged boss is really useful as well. Once he’s dead, you stop getting the poison gas floor phase and also just the lack of grenades really opens up the arena.

Someone should also be purposefully setting off (but avoiding) the grenades to clear space as well. They never disappear on their own, so if they build up too much it can really hinder your ability to move safely.

I turned my love for games from a hobby into a job back in 2005, since then working on various gaming / entertainment websites. But in 2016 I finally created my first website about video games – Gameplay Tips. And exactly 4 years later, Game Cheat Codes was created – my second website dedicated to legal game cheats. My experience with games started back in 1994 with the Metal Mutant game on ZX Spectrum computer. And since then, I’ve been playing on anything from consoles, to mobile devices.
