Warhammer 40K: Darktide just dropped a massive patch called "Blessings of Omnissiah", and in it comes big changes to how you acquire, bless, and use loot in the multiplayer shooter.

Loadouts are finally in the game, allowing players to save up to 5 Wargear sets that include your weapons, gear, curios, cosmetics, and chosen talents. Now is the time to really dive into trying different builds.

In the Armoury Exchange, you can now acquire a specific weapon by its mark (Mk). Higher Mk level weapons become available to you as you reach the appropriate level to use them.

Weekly contracts have had their required targets reduced while also increasing the amount of Ordo Ingots they provide. Also gone is the cap on re-rolling a given task.

Weapon Blessings are now also more user-friendly with the ability to extract a Blessing from your weapon in your inventory, sacrificing the weapon, but giving you the ability to use that Blessing on another weapon of the same Mk. Earned Blessings are also shared between all characters on your account, which is a huge lifesaver.

There are also a ton of balance changes, tweaks, and improvements to quality of life and weapons in Warhammer 40K: Darktide that come with this patch so be sure to check out the full patch notes.

All-in-all these changes are a big improvement to the game and really touch on the feedback players have been giving since launch about gear and the acquisition of gear. It may not be perfect, but it's a huge step forward for the game as the team previously promised.
