First, some quick details about the daemon host. This enemy only appears in missions with the Power Interruption condition, which turns off all lights in one mission and leaves you to fend for yourself in near pitch blackness. The Daemonhost also shares some similarities with witches from Left 4 Dead. You can tell if one is around by hearing whispers, seeing a large white glow around them, and sometimes a few Poxwalkers worshiping them.

Daemonhosts are not pushovers. You can teleport and move incredibly fast, and if you’re unlucky enough to get caught by one and your allies can’t free you fast enough, you’ll be killed instantly and must be rescued later in the mission. They also slowly apply corruption to you thanks to an aura and are an unyielding enemy, so they can’t be swayed by most abilities and weapons if they don’t sound scary enough.

To deal with a Daemonhost, you need to be prepared and coordinate with your allies, as dealing with this enemy will require a group effort. Since they only attack a single target, we recommend an Orgyn with the Slab Shield take over the aggro and keep them on their toes. Make sure to keep moving and use your shield to withstand their barrage of attacks. You can also use a Zealot when an Orgyn isn’t available, but you’ll need to be quick on your feet and dodge with great precision. From there it’s mostly up to veterans and psykers to do as much damage as possible as quickly as possible.

There are a few options that can help, such as B. High-damage weapons geared toward killing elite and special enemies, or Feats of Strength that can buff you or nearby allies to maximize damage. If that sounds like too much effort or you don’t feel ready, you can always avoid them as there is a way or route to avoid these encounters, which in some cases is for the best. You get a Penance achievement for your troubles if you manage to kill them. How to defeat the Daemonhost in Warhammer 40k: Darktide
