In Helldivers 2, players need to get new weapons to fight off the threats they face. Getting new weapons is crucial for progressing in the game and being ready for tough missions. There are different weapons to choose from, each with its own abilities and ways to use them. To get these weapons, players will spend in-game money like Medals and Warbonds at places like the Acquisitions Centre.

You can earn Medals by completing missions and achieving goals in the game. Warbonds work like a battle pass system and give you more ways to get weapons. Be careful when choosing your weapons because each one can change how you approach missions. With the right weapons, you’re ready to bring managed democracy to the galaxy, one battle at a time. Getting new weapons in Helldivers 2 is key to having more firepower and taking on tougher missions. This is how it works:

Medals are Key

Medals are the primary currency for unlocking new weapons. You earn them by:

  • Completing missions: More challenging missions offer higher Medal rewards.
  • Finishing Personal Orders: Check these daily challenges for extra Medals.

Visit the Acquisitions Center

  1. On your ship, find the Acquisitions Center. It’s displayed on a screen near the top of the bridge.
  2. Choose “Warbonds” to see the available weapon reward tracks. There are usually free and premium Warbond options.
  3. Spend your hard-earned Medals on the weapons you want.

Equipping Your Weapons

  • Armory: Visit the armory in the center of your ship to equip new primary and secondary weapons.
  • Pre-mission: You can also equip weapons in the loadout selection area before you launch a mission.

Unlocking Support Weapons

Heavy support weapons like the Anti-Materiel Rifle use a different system:

  1. Go to the Requisitions Terminal on your ship (across from the cryo pods).
  2. Spend Requisition Points (earned from missions) on the support weapons you want.

Unlocking New Weapons

In Helldivers 2, players can enhance their arsenal by acquiring new weapons. The process is straightforward and revolves around earning in-game currency and completing various objectives. Below are the methods by which players can unlock these new weapons.

Earning Warbonds and Super Credits

Warbonds serve as the primary currency for unlocking new weapons. Players earn Warbonds by completing missions and achieving daily challenges. Another form of currency are Super Credits, which seasoned players can use. These come from more challenging missions and can unlock exclusive items. To collect these currencies, players should focus on:

  • Finishing daily missions
  • Achieving specific objectives
  • Participating in events for bonus rewards

Navigating the Requisitions Terminal

After collecting enough Warbonds or Super Credits, players visit the Requisitions Terminal in the game menu. This is the store where transactions for new weapons occur. Here’s how to use the terminal:

  • Open the game menu
  • Select the Requisitions Terminal
  • Browse the available weapons
  • Spend Warbonds or Super Credits to unlock desired items

Completing Missions and Challenges

Completing missions is vital for unlocking new weapons. Each mission provides a set of objectives to complete. Some weapons require players to finish specific missions or challenges. Points of interest include:

  • Regular missions help accumulate Warbonds.
  • Steeled Veterans Warbond missions are for advanced players.
  • Special objectives within missions can lead to rare weapons.

Weapon Types and Loadout Strategies

Choosing the right blend of arms can define success in Helldivers 2 missions. It’s key to consider how weapons pair with strategic demands of the battle.

Primary and Secondary Armaments

Primary weapons are the backbone of your offense. You can select from hard-hitting rifles like the Liberator Assault Rifle or the JAR-5 Dominator Rifle for range, or go for spread damage with the SG-225 Breaker Shotgun. Meanwhile, secondary firearms, typically pistols like the P-4 Senator Revolver or the quick P-19 Redeemer Machine Pistol, serve as reliable backups.

  • Primary: Liberator Assault Rifle, JAR-5 Dominator Rifle, PLAS-1 Scorcher Plasma Rifle
  • Secondary: Peacemaker Pistol, P-4 Senator Revolver, P-19 Redeemer Machine Pistol

Specialized and Support Weaponry

Grenades and heavy weapons offer tactical advantages. Equip grenades like the quick-burst G-16 Impact Grenade or area-denial G-10 Incendiary Grenade for crowd control. Heavy weapons such as the LAS-5 Scythe Beam Rifle bring a powerful punch against tougher foes.

  • Grenades: G-6 Frag Grenade, G-16 Impact Grenade, High Explosive Grenade
  • Heavy Weapons: SG-225IE Incendiary Shotgun, LAS-5 Scythe Beam Rifle, PLAS-1 Scorcher Plasma Rifle

Optimizing for Mission Requirements

Every mission demands a thoughtful loadout. For stealth or precision, gear up with silenced weapons or marksmen rifles. Close-quarters battles call for shotguns and quick-firing pistols. Before you deploy, head to the Acquisitions Centre and gear up with equipment that fits the mission profile.

  • Stealth: Silenced pistols, smoke grenades like G-3 Smoke Grenade
  • Assault: Liberator Assault Rifle, SG-225 Breaker Shotgun, G-6 Frag Grenade

Approach each mission with a plan, and adjust your gear for the challenges ahead.
