Get ready to take on the challenge of Geheimnisnacht in Warhammer: Vermintide 2. The event returns, accompanied by a brand new, permanent free update, Grudge Marks.

Grudge Marks is a free update that will change the Chaos Wastes in Vermintide 2.  Get ready to take on mutated enemies who are stronger than what you’ve seen before. You’ll be able to spot these grudge marked monsters when you see the spears coming out of their backs.

Lead designer Markus Olsén described these monsters as “marked with a grudge” in a release. How did this come about? The team decided that there was a little bit of a gap in the challenge as compared to the generous loot from Expeditions and they felt like there wasn’t enough of a cohesive finale. The solution? Amp up the challenge and let you earn those rewards, while also adding new content to enjoy over and over.

The grudge marked monsters are amplified randomly by some of 10 attributes total being added in this update. You don’t know which one you’ll get until you engage the monster and check the attributes near the health bar. Grudge Marks update is a permanent addition. 

Making Geheimnisnacht bigger and better with extra layers of difficulty this time around is a temporary one, however. So get ready to spend time finding those cultists taking them on, and eventually collecting those hard earned rewards. If you’re able to get through the onslaught of the cultists and destroy their ritual site to end what they’re doing, there will be rewards like a skull diamond decorated skull. And maybe some new items for this year’s event. You can get new weapon illusions for each hero during the event as well.

Geheimnisnacht will come to an end on November 7th. For more on Grudge Marks, see the Warhammer: Vermintide 2 site.
