DetailsThe .998 Godwyn pattern Bolter is the most characteristic Space Marine weapon. It fires self-propelled explosive rounds.

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

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


The standard-issue .998 Godwyn pattern Bolter is the most characteristic weapon in the Space Marine arsenal. Firing self propelled explosive tipped rounds, each bolter is hand crafted and blessed by the chapter's Techmarines.

The Astartes Bolter appears superficially similar in layout to a modern firearm, but is actually too large and heavy for a human to wield, and fires 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. However, such destructive firepower makes it a "merely" adequate weapon against the equally superhuman Chaos Marines, brutally resilient Orks, and other typical adversaries of the Astartes.
