Death Dealers (Ratling Gun Weapons Team) is a Skaven Forbidden Workshop unit in Total War: Warhammer II. The very latest technology Clan Skryre have to offer requires a special breed of suicidal nutters to operate it effectively.


The Ratling Gun is perhaps the most powerful weapon Clan Skryre has ever invented, a large, multi-barrelled death-dealing machine with the potential to change the very face of warfare in the Skaven's favour. Though a relatively new and often unreliable design, the gun has nonetheless proven itself so successful that Clan Skryre simply cannot make enough to satisfy Warlord Clans' greedy demands. Powered by Warp-steam and the prodigious working of a hand crank, the six-barrelled Ratling Gun starts to spin before unleashing its deadly payload of Warpstone bullets. Commonly, the gun requires two Skaven; one to hold and crank the Warp-steam while another aims the gun forward.


  • Damage Dealer: This unit has a strong emphasis on dealing damage. If fighting it, make sure to take it out before it can get into firing or melee range.
  • Armour-Piercing Missiles: The damage of armour-piercing weapons mostly ignores the armour of the target, making them the ideal choice against heavily-armoured enemies. They are often heavier and attack at a slower rate though, making them less efficient against poorly-armoured targets
  • Anti-Infantry: Anti-infantry units have an advantage against targets that are smaller than a horse. This advantage can be a damage bonus against small targets, superior weight used to smash through lighter enemies, or an explosive attack from range that effects a large area.
