Warhammer: Vermintide 2 Victor Witch Hunter Captain Build

Below you will some vital information on the unique passive ability and career skill of the Witch Hunter Captain class. We have detailed some information along with tips and tricks that will help get the most out of these abilities. We have also listed which weapons you should use for this class, which will help you in making this the best Witch Hunter Captain build for Victor around.


Witch-Hunt is Victor’s Passive Ability for the Witch Hunter Captain class. With this ability, all the enemies that you have tagged with receive additional damage in combat. It also eliminates all cost for blocking light attacks coming from the front side of Victor.

Therefore, you can block all light attacks while facing an enemy without any blocking cost. This is a great ability if you get surrounded by a large number of enemies which is the case in most of the situations in Warhammer: Vermintide 2.

Most of the enemies when up close will use light attacks from the front and normally you will lose a good deal of stamina just by blocking that attack. With this ability, however, you will preserve all that stamina, as the frontal attack blocks will not cost you a single drop of stamina.

The last bonus of this ability is that any critical hit headshots will instantly kill all enemies that are man-sized. Meaning the enemies that are similar in size to Victor, will instantly die if you manage to hit them with a critical headshot.


The Career Skill for Victor in the Witch Hunter Captain class is Animosity. With this skill, all nearby allies will get an instant boost to their critical hit chances for straight 8 seconds.

This is a major duration considering the fact that some of the other heroes already have critical hit enhancing skills. Combined with this skill and the result turns out to be a huge boost with critical hits resulting in huge damage boost. It takes a decent enough time to recharge so use it carefully.

All these attacks also get an added advantage of knocking back enemies with this ability. The knockback is great for keeping enemies at bay and avoiding being surrounded by them. This coupled with Critical Hit boost helps eliminating large hordes of enemies quickly and that too from a safe distance.

It also compliments the Passive Ability of Victor. You get a Critical Hit boost as well as Critical Headshot boost so even if you miss the head and hit another critical part, you will instantly kill the enemy, as the boost is insane.

Templar Rapier

For melee, the best weapon for this build is the Templar Rapier. It features 156 power and will cost 3 stamina per swing or hit.

The reason we are using this weapon with this build is because it further reduces the block stamina cost by 22% so when the frontal attacks are not costing you a thing to block, using this weapon will reduce block costs from other side attacks by 22% as well, thus greatly reducing your stamina consumption during combat.

It also has 14 Critical Power so the Critical headshot boost and Critical Hit boost works very well with this weapon. Any critical hit will have an additional 14 damage as well as the ability boost to it. This will turn your weapon into a sheer enemy executioner while saving much stamina.

Flintlock Pistols

Coming to a ranged weapon, the weapon you want with this build is the Flintlock Pistol. It features 140 power and a single clip can hold 20 bullets which is a decent amount of ammo before you need to reload it.

It also comes with a 10% critical hit boost which further adds up to your Passive Ability boost and the Career Skill boost in each scenario. Go for the one with the Imperial Pistol Illusion on it.

The whole point of this build is to conserve stamina and use critical strikes as much as possible. Both the weapons that we have selected for this build are based on these. They will help you conserve stamina and use critical boost damage as much as possible by adding to the boost themselves.

Since the pistols come with a very limited ammo of just 20 bullets, there is a little trick to have infinite ammo. When you have your melee weapon equipped, you can use your alternative attack to shoot from your pistols and it does not use any ammo. You can use this anytime you want and it works pretty well.

It will take out most anything right in front of you unless they are huge or armored. The best part of this attack is that they will not use any ammo and you can still shoot from your pistol. It is not too quick but it still have a decent speed.

Your main weapon with this build will be your Rapier as it features a decent block as well. Keep your pistols for backup and use them when you are certain that the enemy will be dead in one shot.
