DetailsThis Bolter is the fearsome counterpart to the gleaming weapons of the loyalists. Each self-propelled explosive round is branded with dark sigils.

The Bolter or boltgun is the standard Chaos Space Marine ranged weapon. It is the basic weapon for the Tactical class and also available to the Raptor class (requires the True Grit perk).

This Chaos weapon is functionally identical to the Space Marine Bolter.


The desecrated Bolters wielded by many in the twisted ranks of the traitorous Chaos Space Marines appear superficially similar in layout to a modern firearm, but are actually too large and heavy for a human to wield, firing rocket-propelled projectiles almost 20mm in caliber that explode after penetrating the target, causing incredible amounts of damage when compared to present-day small arms. The firepower of these defaced weapons have been proven time and again to the detriment of many Imperial Guardsmen and xenos alike, who have had the misfortune to stand in the way of these dark warriors.
