Warhammer 40k Darktide: How To Get Beta Helmets

Fatshark thanks its beta testers by offering them exclusive in-game helmets with a sign Beta on them

In the case of Warhammer 40k Darktide, players are rewarded with helmets with a sign of beta drawn on them, which players can wear to show that they have been playing since the Beta version of the game went live. These rewards are exclusive and cannot be earned in the main game. 

Key Takeaways
  • Beta Helmets are unlocked as part of Pre-Order Beta Rewards and are available to players that participated in the Warhammer 40K Darktide’s Beta version.
  • These rewards are exclusive to Beta testers and cannot be acquired by buying any expensive edition or earned by playing the game.
  • The rewards can be claimed by going into the Cosmetics options from the Menu screen.

Steps To Acquire Beta Helmets

  1. After completing the tutorial and reaching the main hub “Morningstar”, press the ESC button.
  2. After pressing the ESC button, a menu will open with various options listed in it.
  3. Click on the “Cosmetics” tab.
  4. Once there, click on the “Head” slots in order to select and equip the Beta Helmets.

Note: These helmets are only available as a part of Pre-Order Beta Rewards not as a part of Pre-Order Bonus. Additionally, these rewards are only available to the owners of the game and not to those who play it via Steam Family Share.


The beta helmets are available for all classes. So, naturally, there are 4 unique helmets of different sizes that fit the head of your selected operator. Below we have listed the names of all Beta Helmets along with the image of each operator wearing the helmet.

It is not uncommon for video game developers to reward the players for trying out and supporting the game before its official release. Warhammer 40k features unique classes each with its own distinct playstyle, feats, and weapons. The unique traits of each of these classes keep them distinct and cover the shortcomings of teammates, making the entire team whole.
