Can You Play Warhammer 40K Darktide Solo

Warhammer 40K Darktide is an extremely fun and intense game that is made even better if you are playing with friends. However, sometimes, you want to enjoy the game at your own pace by playing solo. So, can you play Warhammer 40K Darktide solo as a single-player experience?

No, you cannot play Warhammer 40K Darktide solo. You also need to have an active internet connection and play with other players online.

However, you can technically play the game solo without any other online players. If you want to know more about this, continue reading the section below!

Warhammer 40K Darktide: Can You Play Solo?

Darktide is extremely fun with your friends

As aforementioned, unfortunately, you cannot play Warhammer 40K Darktide solo. It is designed to be an online-only four-player co-op experience. So, you need to have an active internet connection and play with other human players.

However, if the game cannot find a player to join your lobby, it will fill the empty slot with a random bot. As soon as a human player joins, the bot will be removed. So, you can theoretically play with 3 bots and make the game a single-player experience.

While you might be able to do that, the chances of that happening are quite low right now. Darktide is extremely popular right now and the community of the game is at an all-time high. You will almost always find other human players regardless of the time you are playing at.

Even if you finally get a game where there are 3 other bots, you will not have a fun time. Since you cannot communicate with them, the game will feel quite lifeless. Plus, bots will not adapt new strategies to beat strong enemies, so, the burden will fall to you.

However, since Warhammer 40K Vermintide allowed players to embark on a single-player adventure, we can only hope that the devs add a solo option for players that are looking for it.


Hopefully, this guide answered your question about whether you can play Warhammer 40K Darktide solo or not. While it is a bit disappointing that you cannot play the game solo, it is extremely fun with other players. This is especially true if you are playing with your friends.

We would love to hear your thoughts about this matter and if you are enjoying the game or not. Also, since you’re here, why not take a look at our class guides and which ranged or melee weapons are worth using?
