Warhammer: Vermintide 2 Victor Saltzpyre

The ‘Witch-hunter’ of the game, Warhammer: Vermintide 2 Victor Saltzpyre encourages combat with extraordinary mobility and lightning fast attacks. The Rapier and Handguns are two of the most powerful weapons in the game both in terms of speed and damage output. The class is for players looking to be on the attacking side of the team but also to be quick while they’re at it.

So Warhammer: Vermintide 2 Victor Saltzpyre can be considered a hybrid between those offered by Kerillian and Markus. The following Warhammer: Vermintide 2 Victor Saltzpyre Guide is to help you understand and piece together moves which can get you out of harm’s way, deal lot of damage, and ultimately progress through the game. Remember talents have to be enabled for maximum effectiveness. Let’s start with the first class of the character!

Witch Hunter Captain

One of the most powerful perks of this career has to be the insta-kills. These can be carried out by easily targeting over the heads of the enemies to instantly put them down with the sword.

This together with the career skill named ‘Animosity’ can be a lethal combo as it increases the chances of teammates to perform critical hits for a duration of 8 seconds, a time period which can be increased to 12 seconds by using a certain talent.

Tagged enemies take higher damage and light attacks are blocked. This class is more suitable for close-quarter combat with lethal blows to bring down the strongest of foes including Chaos Warriors. Talents give you an increased stamina and increase dodge range by 10%. Ammunition gets an increase of 30%.

When dealing with bosses, make sure to aim for the heads as a head-shot will increase damage output by 25%. Death of tag-able enemies will result in a grant of 5 HP to teammates as well as increase chances of critical hits by 20%. Health is gained on death of a boss enemy.

Bounty Hunter

The class unlocks once the player reaches level 7 in the game. This one focuses more on ranged-damage and the use of that gun.

After a time period of 8 seconds, critical hit is guaranteed even though a melee attack hit will cause the time period to shorten to almost an instant after which the ability refreshes to be used again. Reload speed and ammo increases (doubles) so keep on switching between the weapons while using this ‘Blessed Shot’ skill to land more critical hits.

The career skilled will allow you to fire shots which can put down multiple enemies in a straight line or deal huge damage to bosses. Equipping talents will increase reload speed and attack speed by 5%. It will also reduce weapon spread particularly useful for weapons like the crossbow which become quite inaccurate for firing while moving. Other talents will give you abilities like increase revive speed by 30%. Power of critical hits increase by 25%. Kills retrieve a little bit of health back.


Unlocks when level 12 reached, this career will allow you to deal immense amount of damage particularly when you’re closer to your health being depleted out. During low HP, damage output is increased considerably.

Power increases by 20% when at 1 HP. Heavy attacks cannot be interrupted. The career skill will increase attack speed by a whopping 50% for 5 seconds so you can continue to deliver blows quicker than you can count enemies on screen!

Talents include stamina regeneration, critical hits up by 5% chance and reduction in stun effect. A certain talent will allow you to increase power of hits by 5% on each enemy nearby. Inflicted doesn’t exceed 25 in a single hit.

Health is regained on kills particularly 2 HP is gained from each successive hit. Combine this with ‘Holy Fervor’ (the career skill which increases attack speed by 50%) and you can gain about 6-8 HP over 5 seconds.
