Warhammer 40K Chaos Gate: All The Things You Should Know | Beginner’s Tips

Warhammer 40K: Chaos Gate – Daemonhunters has been released not long ago, introducing a ton of new stuff and mechanics that beginners might find confusing and overwhelming.




The Chaos Gate – Daemonhunters game from the Warhammer 40K franchise is a rather complicated game that uses the turn-based strategy combat of XCOM and takes it up a notch. This means that as a beginner, you’ll be thrown headfirst into tons of confusing and overwhelming stuff from the very start of the game.

Suffice to say, the game world is unforgiving, and even during the early parts, you’ll be struggling against the game’s occasional difficulty spike, especially when you’re pitted against bosses. If you want to make the journey a lot less of a struggle, then this guide is for you.

All the Things You Should Know as a Beginner in Warhammer 40K: Chaos Gate – Daemonhunters

To make your experience playing the game as smooth and memorable as possible, I highly suggest following these recommendations:

Choose Your Difficulty Wisely

It’s not an exaggeration when I say that Chaos Gate is a particularly hard game. Therefore, when you first start the game, you’ll want to settle on a difficulty level you’re most comfortable with.

Keep in mind that your pride has no place here. Even veterans of Warhammer 40K games will find the game quite challenging, and if you don’t learn quickly, enemies will whoop your ass.

As such, I highly recommend going for the easiest difficulty which is Merciful just for the sake of learning the mechanics of the game or even understanding how this particular genre works.

If you have a fair bit of experience, then you can go with either Standard or Ruthless – Legendary if you want to experience a bit of pain.

The hardest difficulty is Grand Master Mode. It’s best you avoid this one AT ALL COSTS!

Don’t Skip the Tutorial

The tutorial in this game is huge. It’s an absolute must, especially if you don’t know the ins and outs of a turn-based strategy game. The tutorial will teach you the basics as well as some advanced mechanics that will be a great help to you as you progress through the game.

Besides, the game’s tutorial is quite comprehensive, so you’ll be able to digest the information easily. You can also get access to some amazing cutscenes and snippets that you would have missed if you choose to skip the tutorial.

Take a Tour of the Baleful Edict

The Baleful Edict is the home base you return to after every mission. However, there are tons of stuff you can actually do here.

For example, you can talk to various characters for some story updates, lore, and even character development.

You can also upgrade your ship and perform research while inside the Baleful Edict. Lastly, you can customize your Knights, so it’s a no-brainer to explore your home base and take advantage of everything it has to offer.

Pick Your Missions Wisely

Missions are an integral part of Chaos Gate. While you’re not doing any of the main missions, you have the option of dealing with Bloom Outbreaks scattered throughout the galaxy. The thing with these missions is that they’re only available for a limited time, and if you fail to complete them, it will only cause corruption to spread further.

In essence, the more corruption a planet has, the more morphed it will be once you go there next time. However, you just can’t to go any location that you see on the map.

You’ll want to thoroughly decide which is the best path so you can complete as many missions as possible in a single outbreak. However, this will have the negative effect of putting pressure on your team.

For the most part, you have to weigh your options carefully. Maybe the two missions you’re planning on doing have a reward you don’t really need while the lone mission found on the other part of the galaxy comes with tons of stuff you need.

This all boils down to proper decision-making, and you’d want to take your time doing so.

Make Use of Your Abilities

Lastly, don’t ignore your abilities, else you’ll be missing out. Abilities are very powerful in the game. While you can run around shooting at enemies using your Storm Bolters, that won’t take you far in the game without the use of abilities.

Abilities will allow you to massively enhance your overall combat efficacy, particularly your weapons. For example, you can silence a Demon so it won’t be able to use any Psychic abilities.

Albeit simple, this can actually turn the tide of battle as it will massively nerf its damage output. There’s also the shield ability by Grey Knights that grant them additional armor, allowing them to survive a lot of battles.

You can find tons of abilities in the game, and it’s all about experimenting with what those abilities do to make your game progression a lot easier.

Fastest Easy Ways To Unlock BUSO HAKI V3 In Pixel Piece

Make it fast and easy by reading this guide!

Doben Villaruz



Some of us who enjoy playing video games are also fans of anime like Naruto, Bleach, and One Piece, and they’re very popular right now because they not only have a TV show but are also featured in various games using mods and occasionally fan-made games. I know that some of you haven’t yet acquired the Buso Haki, but if you want to do so much faster than everyone else, then this guide is just for you.

Buso Haki V3

For those who are new to the game and are unaware of this process, you must wait until nighttime (in-game) because you’ll be entering the Vaill Island, where you must first reach Level 70+ because you won’t likely survive if you don’t level up. You’ll also need $5000 in order to activate a quest from an NPC in that island.

So when you get to Valli Island, you’ll run into an NPC wearing a hat who will give you a mission that requires you to pay $5000. Once you do so, a new objective with the words “Battle 4 Ancient Gorilla of 0/3” appears up on the bottom right of your screen. At that point, you must defeat the Gorilla Boss.

The boss gorilla must be found and defeated three times; he deals a lot of damage when he pounds the ground and hits you with his shockwave fist, thus having teammates who are at the same level as you or who are strong enough to defeat the gorilla will actually speed up the battle.

It is actually recommended to find the respawn point every so often to make your life easier. When you get to the part where the gorilla is, you need to do this so that when you die, you won’t have to go to a random island and it will be a hassle to navigate through the world again just to find one island and beat the Gorilla boss.

The Quest pop-up that was mentioned to you earlier on screen states that you should defeat the Gorilla boss at least three times. Once you defeat the Gorilla boss, you will level up, receive an item called “Soul of Armament,” and learn the skill Armament Haki.

When the Gorilla boss dies, it will take some time for him to respawn, and you will need to defeat him again until you finally defeat him on the third try.

Now that we have defeated the gorilla boss, let’s discuss the advantages of wearing these hakis. The Haki V1 will increase your melee/sword M1 damage by +6 and give you the ability to hit Logia users.

However, 50,000 Haki Mastery points are required to upgrade your Haki to V2. What does V2 offer in terms of benefits? You receive +9 more melee/sword damage than the Haki V1 with it.

And ultimately, of course, in order to truly unlock Buso Haki V3, you actually need 200,000 Haki Mastery points. The advantages of possessing this are that it increases your melee/sword damage by +14 compared to Haki V2, making it currently the strongest in the game.

It takes a lot of grinding to get to the 200,000 Haki point need, but there is an easier way to farm the points for V3. To do this, make sure you have reached Level 100; if not, continuing farming in the world you are currently in until you are powerful enough to reach the island where we’re going to farm the points faster.

You must travel to Syrup Island, which is between Vaill Island’s northeast and east. Once there, you’ll see a lot of players grinding against NPCs to gain Haki Mastery points more quickly.

You may have heard that you should grind straight to Arlo Park, but doing so will only slow you down because the NPCs there are much tougher than those in Syrup Island.

However, if you want to go for it and you have pals who can fight with the NPCs in Arlo Park, feel free to do so.


I hope this was of some help. A tremendous thank you to Nikkolapz for going over each of these details and explaining them so thoroughly. For better understanding check out his video:
