Helldivers 2 Beginner Tips

Helldivers 2 is a game in which you will have to face various threats during your adventures, which you can carry out either in the company of up to three other players or alone. In this article, therefore, we will give you some Helldivers 2 beginner tips that you should follow if you want to have an easier life in the game. Remember, in fact, that adopting strategies and tactics can be really useful to try to make your progress easier, especially if you decide to continue alone.


Helldivers 2 Beginner Tips

There are several things to consider in a game like Helldivers 2. Not only will you have to pay attention to the combat phases and know your opponents well, but you will also have to spend time researching resources and everything the game has to offer. Let's see, therefore, some practical advice that you can follow in order to be able to face the dangers that hide in the game world more easily.

Don't Be Too aggressive, and Don't Forget About Bullets

The first thing you need to know is that being too aggressive in Helldivers 2 will backfire. The game was created to be as realistic as possible, so don't try to be a Rambo of the situation, but plan well all the moves you plan to make. Also, don't forget to make use of support structures and machinery that can make your life easier, such as turrets and minefields.

As regards the actual shooting, as in almost every other game, we advise you to first eliminate the weakest enemies that are present in order to then be able to concentrate all your strength and resources on the larger ones. Smaller enemies are often more agile and are able to catch you off guard, which will put you at a disadvantage in the long run. For this reason, eliminating the least dangerous threats first and then focusing on the larger enemies is the best strategy to use.

Also, be careful not to get caught in the crossfire and get hit by friendly fire. In Helldivers 2, in fact, there is the possibility of taking damage from your allies and from the structures you have placed to hit your opponents, so pay maximum attention. For this reason, we recommend that you always fight by staying close to places where you can take shelter and also try to stay lying down and not standing to have less chance of being hit. Helldivers 2 aims for a certain level of realism, so it is normal that such a game mechanic is present.

In this regard, again with regards to the combat phase, Helldivers 2 adopts a mechanic to try to make the game more similar to reality. In fact, every bullet is important in Helldivers 2. Unlike other games where you can reload even when you still have bullets in the magazine and they don't get lost, in Helldivers 2, it doesn't work like that, but like in reality. Any bullets remaining in the magazine will no longer be usable. For this reason, try to empty the magazine completely before reloading it. It may seem trivial, but there will be situations where even a single bullet can make a difference.

Use Stratagems and Memorize Some Codes

Another very interesting game mechanic that is present in Helldivers 2 is certainly that of Stratagems. They allow you to make use of certain advantages during your adventure, but be aware that some of the more powerful ones can only be used for a limited time during a single mission. For this reason, plan well about how you want to proceed and what type of strategy you want to use.

Stratagems are very useful in different situations since there are six different categories, each linked to an aspect of the battlefield. If you find yourself in difficulty, you can use it to gain an advantage over your opponents. You can, of course, also decide to use more than one in the same mission, chaining them one after the other in such a way as to have an even more devastating effect. Obviously, however, you will still have to keep in mind the type of enemies you have in front of you; you cannot use Stratagems at random.

Explore the Map to Find Useful Resources

At the beginning of the article, we told you that in Helldivers 2, it is not only important to know how to behave against your enemies and know how to use certain game mechanics, but it is also important to pay attention to the resources that are present on the game map. In fact, without them, you won't be able to get very far. Resources, in Helldivers 2, are used to do practically everything, so it is important that you give them the right importance.

Furthermore, by exploring the map, you will also be able to visit Areas of Interest, which will allow you to find weapons, money, pieces of equipment, and much more. These are certainly items that will come in handy during your adventure. Our advice is to use some time between objectives to be able to hunt for everything the game has to offer. Furthermore, by doing so, you will also be able to complete secondary objectives that will give you more experience than standard missions.
