Warhammer 40,000: Fire Warrior is a first-person shooter for PC and PlayStation 2. The game follows a Tau Fire Warrior, Shas'ui'T'au'Kais, and his heroic acts to save the Ethereal Ko'vash, while fighting against the forces of the Imperium (Notably the Imperial Guard and the Raptors).

Further into the game, Kais teams up alongside Captain Ardias of the Ultramarines 3rd company during a temporary cease fire negotiated between the two factions. This is because the forces of the Chaos Word Bearers intervene with the fighting on the planet. Eventually the planet is ordered to be cleansed through an Orbital Strike bombardment ordered by Ardias to rid the planet of Chaos taint.

What happens to Shas'ui'Kais in the events afterwards is unknown.

There is also a multiplayer mode consisting of Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, and Capture the Flag. Eight multiplayer maps are included with the game, Deathmatch having its own, and Team Deathmatch and Capture the Flag having their own. Fire Warrior was one of the first Playstation 2 games to support 8 player multiplayer using its broadband adaptor.


The story takes place over a period of 24 hours. The game begins with Kais's first mission, an attempt to rescue Ko'vash from Governor Severus. He infiltrates Severus's prison-fortress, and escapes with Ko'vash intact. As the Orca dropship begins docking with the Tau Emissary class cruiser, it is attacked by an Imperial Battleship, and boarding pods are launched. Kais then fights a desperate battle against a force of Space Marines as they try to disable the cruiser's engines, and assassinate the Captain. After Kais fails to rescue the Captain, he and several teams of Fire-Warriors are launched by boarding pod at the Imperial ship. There, he disables the ship's guns and nearly captures the ship's commander, Admiral Constantine. Kais is clubbed on the head by Captain Ardias, however, and is captured. Ardias brokers a truce between the Imperium and the Tau, and it is revealed that Governor Severus has been seduced by the Powers of Chaos, teleporting a contingent of Word Bearers Chaos Marines onto the ship. They capture the ship's remaining guns in an attempt to re-start the Imperium-Tau war, but are stopped by Kais's destruction of the guns. Ardias then sets the ship to self-destruct, and Kais escapes via a Dreadnought drop-pod. Landing in the midst of a ruined Imperial city, Kais fights his way to fellow Tau Fire-Warriors, and learns from Ardias that Severus plans to use an Imperial Titan held in the City. Kais destroys the Titan, enters Severus's fortress, and kills Severus and his daemonic master. The game ends with Ardias ordering that the planet should be destroyed to prevent the taint of Chaos from spreading.

Many adversaries from the Warhammer 40,000 universe are encountered by the protagonist Kais, such as Dreadnoughts, Chaos Space Marines, Imperial Guard, Daemon princes, and an Imperial Valkyrie.


La'Kais — the game's protagonist. The game is Kais's first day of live combat action so the first level is named "Trial by Fire".

Governor Meyloch Severus — The Governor of the planet Dolumar IV in the game. Prior to the mission 'No Rest for the Wicked', he was interested in the Tau pysche, disappointed that they did not have any link to the Warp. He aligned himself with the Chaos Daemon Tarkh'ax, and summoned Word Bearers Chaos marines onto the Imperial battleship. The Chaos marines destroyed the ship, and Severus holed up in his fortress on Dolumar IV, 'The Pit'. Chaos marines under his command also attempted to capture and control an Imperial Titan, but they were foiled when Kais destroyed the sacred machine. When killed by Kais, his corpse was possessed by Tarkh'ax.

Admiral Constantine — The captain of the Imperial ship that attacks the Tau in an attempt to retrieve the Ethereal after Kais rescues him. His boarding force is repelled, and the Tau launch a counter-boarding action, where Kais eventually attacks the bridge and nearly captures the Admiral. He is later taken by Governor Severus and the Word Bearers, and lasts just long enough to give Kais a final warning before he is turned into a Chaos Spawn.

El'Lusha — The Commander of Kais' force. He guides Kais through the first half of the game. In the novel, he dons a Crisis Suit and his team helps defeat the Daemon for good.

Aun'el Ko'Vash — The whole reason for the game, the first missions on Dolumar IV are to rescue Ko'Vash.

Ardias — Captain of the 3rd Company of the Ultramarines Chapter. He saves the Admiral's life when Kais storms the bridge. He negotiates a truce between the Imperials and Tau, where later, he overrides Kais' communications, allowing him to direct Kais through the second half of the game to fight the Chaos incursion. In the novelization, he also fights against Tarkh'ax in the Chaos temple.
