There are several Deathwatch outfits or “Kill Teams”; each designed to handle a different element of combat. For the close combat junky there’s the “Malleus Kill team“; equipped with Thunder Hammers and Storm Shields. If you’re looking for speed and flanking, look no further than the bike and Terminator heavy “Venator Kill Team” to out pace and circle your enemies. Deathwatch offers you unique heavy weapons like the, “Furnace Pack Heavy Bolter” which is basically a bolter with a flame thrower and the, “Fire Cannon” for taking out heavier defenses and light vehicles; there’s just so much choice in equipment to work with that is easy to see why this would be a fun chapter to play with.
