In Vermintide, you will assume one of five roles in your battle against the Skaven horde. These roles, known as heroes, will outfit you with a variety of unique items, weapons, and approaches.
Every hero is equipped with a melee and ranged weapon, and can also pick up items throughout a mission. These equipped items allow the same hero to be played in different ways, and come in different rarities.
