Helldivers 2: A Call to Arms Against 2 Billion Automatons

Unleash the Fury in Helldivers 2

Arrowhead, the visionary force behind Helldivers 2, has ignited a blaze of excitement within the game’s devoted community by issuing a daring new challenge: eradicate 2 billion Automatons to unveil a formidable new Stratagem.

In this heart-pounding co-op shooter available on PC and PlayStation 5, players are summoned to embark on a five-day crusade, tasked with “decommissioning the targeted number of Automatons.” Should the indomitable community achieve the monumental feat of surpassing the robot kill count within the designated timeframe, the highly sought-after Anti-Tank Mines Stratagem will be unlocked, ushering in a new era of warfare.

While the prospect of exterminating two billion bots may seem daunting, the battle-hardened Helldivers 2 community has a storied history of rallying in response to daunting challenges. In a testament to their collective prowess, players previously vanquished two billion Terminids in less than 24 hours during a previous Major Order, though a subsequent confirmation from Arrowhead revealed a bugged kill count. Yet, with this latest Major Order, the community remains resolute, ready to face the trials ahead.

The issuance of the Major Order follows a tumultuous period for Arrowhead, marked by clashes with publisher Sony over the announcement of plans to mandate Steam players to link their accounts to PSN. Sony ultimately reversed its decision in response to widespread outcry and a review-bombing campaign, highlighting the power of community advocacy.

Furthermore, discussions among players have been ignited by this week’s release of the Premium Warbond, prompting debate regarding the perceived lack of captivating new weapons. Community voices have called for Arrowhead to allocate additional time to refine the Warbonds, ensuring a more impactful and satisfying experience. Meanwhile, the director of Helldivers 2 has acknowledged the inherent challenges of balancing updates, conceding that adjustments may sometimes veer “too far” in their implementation.

As the Helldivers 2 community braces for the monumental task ahead, the battlefield awaits, teeming with anticipation, camaraderie, and the promise of victory.
