Warhammer 40K Darktide Flash Mission [Penances] 

Learn what the Flash Mission is and the objective that it requires players to carry out in order to complete it!

Warhammer 40K Darktide offers players a wide variety of penances that they can choose between, including missions, offensive, and class-related penances, as well as a few more categories. Players might need assistance with how the Warhammer 40K Darktide Flash Mission will be carried out! 

Key Highlights
  • The Flash Mission is an undiscovered penance that players can encounter when they are scrolling through different penances. 
  • The penances featuring a flash mission cannot be currently carried out due to unknown reasons. 
  • Flash Mission is part of 2 penances that are present under the Missions tab in the different penance categories. 
  • The two penances will be known as Stand By For Action as well as Rapid Response
  • Unless and until an update comes out, the Penance simply stands for the show for players. 

What Is Flash Mission? 

With the different penances offered to players, the Flash Mission makes its presence known sneakily into one or two penances that players might have skimmed past without giving it too much thought. 

  • There will be a total of 2 flash mission-related penances that players will be able to encounter. 
  • The first flash mission-related penance will be known as Stand By For Action, which will entail players completing one flash mission to finish this particular mission. 
  • The second Penance, which will include the flash mission, will be known as rapid response, which will have players carry out any flash mission that they can do but ensure that they complete it on Damnation difficulty, which can take quite a while to complete. 

Now, one thing that most Warhammer players might have noticed is that the Warhammer 40K Darktide Flash Mission isn’t doable. There is no physical way to carry out the penances related to the flash mission simply because there aren’t any in the game at the moment. 

In a few Fatshark and Reddit forums, players have been discussing what the flash mission was, and players were left confused when they encountered the Penance under the mission’s tab but couldn’t figure out a way to check off the select mission. 

  • There may be an issue with the game where it might have ended up being bugged, whereby the developers simply forgot to add the Penance or the ability to carry it out. 
  • There could potentially be a future update where a “Flash Mission” might end up being added, but for the time being, these two penances are just there for the show simply because there is no way to complete them. 

Mission-Type Penances

Now, the two penances that we mentioned before were part of the Mission-Type penances, and alongside these two, there will be a few others that might help players who want to be a completionist and complete all of them. There will also be classes-related penances that we will talk about later. 

  • With the No Stone Unturned mission, players will need to carry out a few investigation missions, and it will have them carry out a total of 50 investigation missions, after which they will be able to be done with it. 
  • Another mission that players will be able to encounter will be known as the Raiding Party, and anytime players decide to carry it out, it will have them go out and take part in the raids that the game has to offer to them, and it will have them do a total of 50 raid missions
  • Alongside that, there will also be a Seek, Locate, Destroy mission, which will entail players going ahead and carrying out assassinations, specifically doing 50 assassination missions. 
  • The Master Of Intrigue mission will be part of the Espionage categories of missions that players need to do, which will have them take part in about 50 Espionage missions. 
  • Besides that, there will also be a Disruptive Behavior mission, which, as the name explains, will entail players carrying out 50 disruption missions.
  • The sixth mission that players might be able to encounter will be known as Strike Force, which will make players carry out 50 strike missions. 
  • Going along the list of 50-type missions, there will be a seventh mission called Omnissiah’s Hand, and whenever it is carried out, it will have players do about 50 repair missions. 

Moving on, the final half of the mission will include the following: 

  • The Auspex Drill missions will have players going around the map and searching for targets that are Auspex, and to be done with the mission, players will need to carry out scans on a total of 10 Auspex targets. 
  • The Adapt To The Environment will make players figure out how to do special condition missions since they are a bit on the more difficult end, and players will have to carry out at least one Special Condition mission to complete this one. 
  • The next one will be called the First Assignment Frame, which will be a mission within a mission, in the sense that it will have players get accomplishment by doing a total of 100 missions
  • The Interrogator mission will make players carry out a few data interrogations, and to complete the Interrogator mission, players will need to do at least 10 data interrogations that they need to complete without failing. 
  • The Flawless Interrogator will be a mission that will have players go ahead and carry out a data interrogation without any kind of incorrect auspex entry. 
  • Then we have our very own Warhammer 40K Darktide Flash Mission, which will be called the Stand By For Action, and players will need to carry out one flash mission. 
  • The Rapid Response will come directly after this since it will make players successfully carry out a flash mission on damnation difficulty. 
  • As for the final two, the Inquisiotiral Recruit will be one that will grant players a frame, and it will be given out whenever players carry out each mission type successfully on either Sedation threat or even higher. 
  • The final mission will be the Mission Improbable, which will have players complete the Raiding Party, No Stone Unturned, Disruptive Behavior, Master of Intrigue, Omnissiah’s Hand, Strike Force, as well as Seek, Locate, and Destroy missions.
