Scab units will give you trouble, especially in the beginning while you’re still figuring things out. After leveling up your hero and getting more powerful weapons and items, these armored heretics will be much easier to kill. But even then, you always have to be careful because they can be very dangerous, especially when there are a lot of them.
In your fights you will face not only Scabs but also Dregs, another Chaos faction in Warhammer 40,000: Darktide. Although these enemies resemble Scabs, they are much weaker as they don’t wear armor. Still, these cultists are formidable opponents, often mixed with hordes of pox walkers and giant monsters. Sound hard? Well, suffering is the motto of the endless war of the 41st millennium.
