Warhammer 40K Review: Shootas, Blood and Teef

The Warhammer 40K series has been around for a while, but strangely enough I never really got into it. I saw how quirky and incredible the characters were in this series, but nothing really drew me to it. But then I was thrown into the fray once I received a review code for the Orks-focused side-game: Warhammer 40K: Shootas Blood & Teef.

From what I’ve been told, Orcs are the only race that can have fun in the Warhammer universe. They are one of the most dangerous alien races to everyone else, but when it comes to their perception, their goals are simple: fight and win. Honestly, that’s how I would describe Shootas, Blood & Teef: Simple.

If you came to Warhammer 40K: Shootas, Blood & Teef expecting something like a wargame, you’re in for a wild ride. It is a Run & Gun shooter that gives you a simple story background and targets to shoot. While the Warhammer 40K series is known for being quite dark at times, this game just spits on that and makes you see things through the eyes of the orcs.

Have you ever played Guns, Gore & Cannoli? Well, you know how Warhammer 40K: Shootas, Blood & Teef is played. You take on the role of an Orc who seeks revenge on his boss who betrayed him because he wanted to steal his hair and that’s it. The game is about your journey as you fight against humans, other orcs, and gene stealers.

You have a choice of 4 classes, each of which slightly affects how you approach battles. Weirdboy has a grenade attack and lightning-based melee; Beast Snagga Boy uses exploding spears; Storm Boy can use cluster bombs; and Flash Git, which sometimes fires fewer rounds so you can keep shooting.

As I said, this game is relatively simple. It uses a two-stick control scheme, moving with the left stick and aiming with the right. Once you graduate from orc school on how to shoot things, you’re pretty much ready to take on the role of trash, shooting things and killing everything until you inevitably die.

Although the concept is simple, the developers did not shy away from creating some complex level designs. The name of the game goes from left to right, but the path to the destination is filled with obstacles and multiple paths. Sometimes you have to climb over a bunch of boxes to find a switch that will essentially unlock your progress at the bottom of the stages; in others, you can’t move forward until you find a switch elsewhere in the stage.

However, it’s really not that deep. I guess I would complain that at one stage the directions of where to go were too vague and I spent some time trying to figure out the way forward. But honestly, as long as you have eyes, you’ll find your way pretty quickly; it shouldn’t be too difficult.

Shooting is also quite simple. You don’t need to worry too much about ammo because the game has plenty to make you forget about it. The game is also pretty generous with in-game currency that you can use to buy some neat hats and different versions of your weapons.

Warhammer 40K: Shootas, Blood, & Teef also has its fair share of boss fights. Some of them are against monolithic sized enemies that will take some punishment. They may seem like a big threat and a challenge at first, but they kind of fall apart once you figure out their schemes.

I guess this is where I start expressing my gripes about the game, because for the love of Orcs, this game has issues. Let’s start with the easy one. Most of the time, bosses are nothing more than bullet sponges that take a long time to kill but don’t really threaten your existence. The same can be said about enemies, to be honest. Because while they can swoop in and kill you, they’re not that hard to kill if you know what you’re doing.

My guess is that the developers throw you so many enemies because of the multiplayer part of the game. This game can be played cooperatively with up to 4 players. The gameplay devolves into a chaotic mess with bullets and particles flying across the screen while you’re basically trying to hope you don’t fall off a cliff or something.

As one of my friends who was helping me out with multiplayer said, the amount of chaos going on all the time makes it easy to lose yourself. Not to mention that the enemies don’t stand out enough in the background, and when they do, there are too many extra effects to be seen properly.

The gamepad controls can also be somewhat confusing to use, at least by default. I mean, what control scheme maps the dash button to a button that isn’t a shoulder button? You also gain access to a weapon wheel, which requires input from the right analog stick and face button, so you have to awkwardly go through the process just to change weapons. This game is definitely made for PC with KB+M controls.

That’s not to mention the technical issues this game has. I had the game freeze a few times during launch; it had some frame drops (and I refuse to believe it was my fault since I’m using a 3070/RYZEN 7 PC) and worst of all I even had times where I literally fell through the map and beyond , falling into an endless void that only stopped after I force closed the game.

The online aspect is not the best. I should mention that I played with friends all the time who were helping me review this game outside of Shootas and we had almost no connection issues. In fact, they have joined me in previous reviews like when we did this TMNT: Shredder’s Revengeand we’ve played other games like Sonic Battle R and Ultimate Chicken Horse with no network connection issues.

Here? Well, your relationship can be the best or it can fall off a cliff. I died inexplicably several times. Sometimes it can be because I got hit by an explosion or a melee attack from my comrades – After all, for some reason, friendly fire is on with them -. At other times, the game would lag and force us to play.

In one of the worst crashes, one of my friends found himself locked out of an entire section of a boss battle. Because of this we were mildly blocked after death because you spawn near where a friend is when you die and respawn. In other words, we appeared outside the boss area. It was necessary to explode with a grenade launcher in order to start again from the nearest checkpoint.

While I’ve rambled on about how pretentious and underdeveloped this game is, Warhammer 40K: Shootas, Blood & Teef is still a fantastic time. The game’s bombastic soundtrack and variety of weapons at our disposal are so good that my friends and I completely ignore many of the game’s flaws. Plus, it’s fun to be part of the chaos.

Up until this point, I couldn’t explain why this game is good for you. As long as you’re willing to turn off your brain and accept the nonsense that comes with multiplayer, this game will be simple enough for you to understand what’s going on. So, get ready and put on your hat. The time has come for modest murders.
