Depending on the edition of your game that you purchased on launch, the weapons selection will vary. You will get the “Helldivers Mobilise!” for the standard edition of the game and “Steeled Veterans” for the Super Citizen edition of the game. Each of the weapons in the game has to be unlocked using Medals and Super Credits, the in-game currency. You can purchase the premium weapons from the Steeled Veterans edition of weapons using the Super Credits if you have the standard edition of the game.
