"Here we are again, Magnus Tower. Now, don't get carried away killing every little rat that crosses your path on the way to sounding that ridiculous horn. We're here to solve a mystery, so be sure to listen out for my directions! Pfah! What's the point with any of this? You're only going to forget it all once the illusion's prepared." Olesya Pimenova

"I'm not sure why I'm bothering to explain this, as you're going to forget as soon as the illusion takes hold, but here goes. There's something hidden in the area around Magnus Tower. All i can say is, that I know it when I see it. Search every nook and cranny! I'll provide any guidance I can, so you better listen! Once you have it, sound the Horn to alert the town." Olesya Pimenova

Synopsis[edit | edit source]

The heroes are sent to an illusion of Ubersreik during the Skaven invasion of Vermintide 1. They have to search for a rune of the Dwarfen Lodestone which Olesya has found. Additionally, they have to reenact the original events during that time, which means fighting their way to Magnus Tower, and blowing the Horn of Magnus in order to alert the town of the invasion.

Gate Event[edit | edit source]

To access Von Jungfreud Platz, the heroes need to use three powder kegs from a nearby drop-off point to blow up a gate. When the area of the event is entered, Skaven and Rotblood Infantry will swarm the heroes. Only one keg will spawn at a time, with each new keg spawning when the current keg is either placed at the gate or destroyed.

Rune[edit | edit source]

See the Rune Guide.

Finale[edit | edit source]

The heroes blow the Horn of Magnus, which attracts hordes of Skaven and Rotbloods. The horde includes Specials and Elites (including Chaos Warriors). They need to hold out until a part of the ceiling collapses and opens up an escape to an elevator. Once down the elevator, the heroes will find the Bridge of Shadows.

Post-Mission[edit | edit source]

After completing The Horn of Magnus, Olesya will say the following.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The reasons Rotbloods can be found in the illusion is unclear or at least multiple: Olesya blames Lohner for obtaining bad scrolls, says Rotblood shamans disrupted the ritual, and mentions she might have "broken the illusion".
  • The Horn of Magnus is a remastered version of the identically named mission in Vermintide 1, although book locations have been changed and several secrets have been added. Information on the original mission can be found here.
