New 40k Points Changes In Chapter Approved 2022

Chapter-Approved-40k-wal-horNew Warhammer 40k points changes are here, and we also have also seen the missions and secondary objectives for Chapter Approved 2022…

We originally saw some of the new changes to Warhammer 40k missions and secondary objectives updates at the US Open Finals in Jan of 2022. Since then we’ve seen rules and points leaks, a new Chapter Approved GT 2022 book, changes to secondaries, and the introduction of seasons for Warhammer 40k.

So that will be a big change to how new and existing Warhammer 40k rules are balanced and how many updates you will have to keep up with as a player.

Now Chapter Approved WarZone Nephilim is here for the second season of 2022 along with Free points changes via downloadable PDFs from Games Workshop here.

– Warzone Nephilim secondary objectives, featuring three default secondary objectives for this Grand Tournament Mission Pack, bespoke secondary objectives for every Warhammer 40,000 faction, and a host of general secondary objectives for common use
– Dynamic new rules for allocating and generating Command points, as well as changes to choosing Relics and Warlord Traits
– Guidelines for setting up and playing a matched play or Grand Tournament-level competitive game, including suggested battlefield size, time limit, and how best to determine secondary objectives

Take your matched play games to new heights with a wide range of secondary objectives for every faction, new rules for Command points, and a range of balanced and competitive missions. Whether you’re a seasoned veteran or a newcomer to the exciting world of matched play, Chapter Approved: War Zone Nephilim has something for you.

Chapter Approved Grand Tournament 2022 Points Changes

It looks like all the new Chapter Approved Points changes have leaked in the 40k app already, but dont forget there will be a free PDF download accessible for everyone upon release of the book on June 25th, 2022.

Long-time competitive players will notice that the Munitorum Field Manual is absent – fear not! This season brings with it our first free points update. The entire points update document will be available to download in a digital format from this very website, so players who want the latest points changes for their matched play games will have free and easy access. 

There are a ton of threads going with everyone chiming in about various faction updates. The first one below for Space Marines comes from Reddit.

However keep in mind these have not been verified, and the complete list of Chapter Approved 2022 Warzone Nephilim points changes are available for download now.

New 40k Orks Points Changes

Orks Points Changes


Orks Points Changes 2You’ll notice they actually gave points for Kustom Jobs, it looks like GW never meant to take away their points and simply forgot to put them in the last update. Unfortunately, now they went from free to original points, meaning they go back to being pretty bad. However, it makes sense upgrades cost points, so nothing too crazy.
