    • Goal: This mission is a Work in progress since we have not yet found this mission in the Beta. We imagine the name-based objective will include feeding false information to the forces of Chaos.
    • Murder
      • Goal: Assassination missions revolve around killing a notable Chaos leader or target. Usually this means there is a boss battle at the end of the mission, like Captain Henrik Turnat.
    • Repair
      • Goal: The Repair Mission tasks players with repairing a key piece of equipment or power systems.
    • Raid
      • Goal: In raid missions, players often collect various resources from supply depots.

In general, there is a wide variety of missions to choose from in Darktide. You may not find some missions in the Beta or full version, since the missions are on a rotation cycle. About every hour, new quests with secondary objectives and special events will appear on the map, so check back later if there’s a particular quest you want to complete. You can also complete a Penance called point of view for the Sharpshooter class by playing one of every mission in the game.
