Darktide Elite and Special Enemy HP Guide for Breakpoints and Theorycrafting
This guide shows the health and type of each enemy in Darktide, on all difficulties, to aid in theorycrafting.
This guide page shows the health points of all special and elite enemies in Warhammer 40,000: Darktide on all difficulties, along with the type of the enemy (including armour types where applicable). You can use this guide as a reference to help with theory crafting and to help calculate breakpoints (how much power you need vs a particular enemy type to one shot certain enemies).
Currently we are still learning new things about the game every day, so we will most likely add more information and more enemies to this page over time. For now we have included all specialized and elite enemies in Darktide.
Bosses, horde and smaller "ambient" enemies are not included for the time being.

Darktide Horde Enemy HP
The table below shows the HP (hitpoints) of all Horde enemies in Darktide. The Enemy type typically refers to the type of the enemy (Infested, Unyielding, etc) and/or its armour type (Flak or Carapace). The type is important to know because it dictates which weapon properties will buff your damage against that enemy. Sometimes the Armour type is different depending where you hit the enemy (head vs torso, for example).
