Helldivers 2: How to Load and Fire the SEAF Artillery

This article will discuss how to load and fire the SEAF Artillery in Helldivers 2.

Helldivers 2 is the latest phenomenon in the multiplayer shooter games genre, and just like all other shooter games, there’s a huge assortment of weapons and armaments that you can use to eliminate your foes and adversaries.

In the case of Helldivers 2, you’ll find weapons both in your armory and in the world itself. So in this article, we’ll be talking about one specific Stratagem that’s pretty big and something you’ll find in the map itself.

The SEAF Artillery is exactly what its name says it is. A gigantic artillery that deals massive damage to groups of enemies through its enormous explosive shells, paving the way to victory for you and your team. Not only does it destroy enemies in its radius, but it also gives the players XP and Requisition Slips, incentivizing its usage.

To unlock these artilleries, you need to find one in the map first. They’re pretty hard to miss, and you’ll just have to look for a cannon pointing directly up in the air. It’s also shown on the minimap with the symbol of a cannon, so just keep your eye out for that. 

Before approaching the artillery itself, you’ll need shells that you can shoot, and you’ll find them scattered around the vicinity of the SEAF artillery. It’s important to note that you’re quite slow when carrying these shells.

Make sure you have a teammate with you or you’re not in immediate danger when carrying them to the artillery. Having them with you will trigger enemies as well. We found that spamming the drop/pick up button while walking helps speed up the process.

Carry these shells back to the artillery, and proceed to load them inside the Stratagem by interacting with it when it says ‘Insert Ammo’. You can load up to 5 shells, and once you’re done loading them all up, interact with the terminal again to ready the cannon.

Note that the SEAF artillery will use the shells in the order they were put in, so it’s ideal for a teammate to keep track of the order, maybe by writing it down somewhere.

Artillery Shell Colors

If you haven’t noticed, the artillery shells for the SEAF have different colors, and as you can probably guess, each of the colors indicate a different type of ammo/damage. So what do they mean? To answer that, have a look down below:

  • Static Shell (Blue): Damage on impact that ignores armor and leaves a field of electricity that slows down enemies that stun anything caught in it.
  • Napalm Shell (Red): Deals massive damage on impact and enemies take fire damage once they’re caught in the explosion
  • Smoke Shell (Yellow): Creates a smoke screen that reduces visibility for enemies caught in the radius.

So, according to your needs and strategies in the battlefield, you should load up the 5 artillery pieces according to the ammo type that you’ll require. But regardless of the type of ammo that you’ll use, the SEAF artillery is an extremely strong weapon that will definitely give you an advantage if you can get your hands on one and use it properly.
