What Does Bloodlust Do in Warhammer: Chaosbane?

Warhammer Chaosbane R2 (1)

Unlocked as you may your way through the game’s first act, Bloodlust is one of Warhammer: Chaosbane‘s unique features.

Like a lot of features in Warhammer: Chaosbane, however, it’s not explained very well. Though hopefully we can help a little.

When Bloodlust is unlocked, a gauge appears above your health and health and resource meters. The gauge can be filled by collecting the orbs of blood sometimes dropped by defeated enemies, which also restore a portion of your health. But you have to be quick, as they disappear after a short while.

Once the Bloodlust gauge is full, it gleams with energy. Bloodlust can then be activated by pressing the required button, which is the left trigger on both PS4 and Xbox One. While Bloodlust is active, you regenerate health very quickly, and have access to a unique attack that causes a great amount of damage. Enemies defeated while in Bloodlust also have a very high chance of dropping Gem Fragments.

As you progress further into Warhammer: Chaosbane, your Bloodlust ability levels up. By the end of the game the Bloodlust gauge will consist of three orbs to be filled with blood, but it can be activated as long as one is filled. Filling all three just enables you to stay in Bloodlust for longer.

Make use of Bloodlust when fighting strong foes. Also bear in mind that if you die the gauge will be reset, so if you’re close to death and your Bloodlust gauge is full, use it rather than lose it.
