Warhammer 40k: Chaos Gate - Daemonhunters' Plague Marine is the latest enemy showcased in the weekly tradition. The showcase video introduces us to the look and two enemy abilities.
"Bloated with festering corruption, Plague Marines form the mainstay of the Death Guard, the Traitorous Legions of Nurgle." Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate - Daemonhunters just got a brand new Enemy Showcase video and we were just treated to its description.
The latest enemy showcase sheds a light on the Plague Marines and the scourge that is their abilities.
Plague Marine abilities and descriptions:
Enemy ability: Disgustingly Resilient - Heals the Plague Marine after receiving damage. The Plague Marines need to have a quick crouch as they activate the health-restoring skill that ends with a cloud of noxious-looking green gas emanating from their grotesque figures.
Enemy ability: Hazard Spray - Coats the environment with a toxic plague that infects all who touch it. The AoE ability will serve the Plague Marines well if they ever find themselves needing to close off one path on the map. The trailer doesn't specify how long the layer of green goo will last on the floor and walls, but we can be grateful that the ability doesn't seem to have a very large range.
The cooldowns and energy costs of the two abilities showcased in the promotional video haven't yet been addressed, but some fans did voice their desire to play as the Chaos faction. Maybe Complex Games will treat us to the option once Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate - Daemonhunters launches in 2022.
