Martyr's "Fighter" class, clad in Powered Armor and wielding big weapons. This class was the first thing many saw of the game, in an early teaser trailer. He was the first class announced and heavily featured in other trailers and artwork.

  • BFS: One of the Assault subclass's specialties.
  • Bling of War: Inquisitors are one of the best examples of this in the entire setting and Crusaders exemplify it.
  • Expy Discount space marines, utilizing Powered Armor and chainswords. They also draw from the Imperial Guard-er, Astra Militarum, since they prefer stubbers and lasguns to Bolters.
  • Knightly Sword and Shield: The Assault Crusader uses a supression shield and a chainsword, although the sword can be just as easily swapped for a pistol...
  • Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me: The other gear specialty of the Assault subclass.
  • Mana Meter: The Crusader's ability resource is called "focus" and acts in the typical fashion, regenerating at a fixed rate over time.
  • Powered Armor: The only class that has it.
  • Sentry Gun: The Tactical subclass can call in a Tarantula bolter turret.


Martyr's Thief class, nimble, deadly, and Always Female.

  • Dodge the Bullet: A core Assassin ability.
  • Mana Meter: The Assassin's ability resource is called "adrenaline" and is gained by damaging and killing enemies.
  • Sniper Rifle: The Weapon of Choice for the Sniper Class, and also carried by the Eradicator as a backup to their shotgun.



Martyr's "Mage" class, but don't call them that out loud. Can use Psychic Powers and psychoactive "Force" weapons.

  • Magic Staff: The Empyreanist subclass specializes in the use of a large Force Staff.
  • Lovecraftian Superpower: As in the tabletop, psychic powers can have nasty backlash. In practice, the psyker's powers are subject to Overheating, and pushing them too far can actually cause daemons to spawn in.
  • Magic Knight: Due to how Magic Is a Monster Magnet, they use guns and swords as much as they do their powers.
  • Overheating: Using "heat" as a synonymn/slang for "attention" or "scrutiny." Using their powers attracts attention from daemons, and they can only use so much before they get possessed, flipped inside-out, or a combination of the two.
