I think it’s by design, otherwise there’s clipping with hair. With the hood, there are also pipes on the back, so likely something hidden - like a contact plate.

Those that have hair noticeably clip:
Obscurus Mk If Psykana Collar - hair clips while running and head tilted:

Edit (11/12/22): Moved clothes / garment clipping section to:
Psyker clothes clipping - Warhammer 40,000: Darktide / Bugs - Fatshark Forums (

This thread was acknowledged by FatShark so I am not sure that the character being bald in the front with nothing shown covering where hair would be is intended.
Also I would recommend making a different thread to post about the clipping as I don’t think a thread unrelated to clipping issues is the best place to get their attention on that.
Cheers! Hope you have a good day.
