Csm chaos space marine

Veterans of countless centuries of war, Tactical Chaos Space Marines are versatile and fearsome champions for their Dark Gods. Like loyalist Tactical Marines, Chaos Space Marines can serve in almost any battlefield role from front-line assault to holding ground and more.


Tactical Marines are the mainstay of Chaos Space Marine forces, elite warriors functioning as versatile front line troops that bear the brunt of operations. They can wield a wide variety of weapons with great effect. The Tactical class strikes a balance between ranged combat and close combat.

Tactical Marines enjoy being the most agile of the three classes. In multiplayer their ground roll allows the marine to cover 8 meters quickly as well as travel through any players and NPCs. While walking the travel at 6.18 m/s, which can be increased to 150% when running, which is the fastest of all classes. By comparison walking while aiming a weapon only moves at 40% speed. Also of note, there is a glitch that allows the Chaos Space Marine to shoot through some cover, just by standing next to it, although this does not work with the Melta Gun, Vengeance Launcher & Plasma Gun's charged shot.

Hia armor is Chaos Power armor (Online) but with Rage Armor's left greave. Also, for a brief strategic summary of Exterminatus for the Tactical class, check out the Loyalist Tactical Marines page.
