A World Eaters Rampager wielding a Meteor Hammer.

A Caedere Weapon was a type of close combat weapon used by the Astartes of the World Eaters Legion during the Great Crusade and the Horus Heresy.

Based upon the ritual weapons of the cyber-augmetic gladiators of the savage world of Nuceria upon which their bloody-handed Primarch was cast through the Warp, it was Angron himself who revived the use of the Caedere among his Legion's ranks.

Brutal and difficult to master, the weapons of the Caedere remain largely the preserve of the Rampagers -- those World Eaters who responded best to the addition of the cranial Butcher's Nails implants which are a hallmark of the Legion, and its champions.

These weapons included:

  • Meteor Hammer
  • Excoriator Chainaxe
  • Twin Falx Blades
  • Barb-hook Lash
