Helldivers 2

I've got enough supercredits for free from just playing, so now I can unlock one of the premium warbonds (steeled veterans and cutting edge)

they each have a decent looking weapon, but which one of these two would be more useful?

    I would go purely based on what looks cooler, the arc shotgun looks cooler. I'm stupid though so feel free to ignore me, I'm just bumping your thread.

    The Dominator is the only vaguely useful weapon in Steeled Veterans and it's not even that good. The Blitzer isn't that great either, but the Sickle and Stun Grenades from Cutting Edge are worth having. Cutting Edge overall is a better value unless there's a few cosmetics in Steeled Veterans you simply must have.

      Blitzer makes a great pairing for a laser drone.

      The Incendiary Breaker is worth taking for bugs. It's the not dog-shit version of the Spray & Pray in terms of horde killing, and it takes out Shriekers in one hit.

      its positively worthless. its a complete downgrade to the slugger

    Based on just those two weapons
    Dominator fires actual mini missiles, meaning the projectile has travel time and is very hard to hit with, but it deals great damage once you understand how it works. It behaves more like a DMR, and can take out a lot more ememy types than most other primaries. If you don’t learn how to hit with it, the gun will feel TERRIBLE but if you learn how to use it the gun will slap.
    Blitzer looks like a shotgun but is actually a weaker Arc Thrower that is more flexible in its use. Will do great for hordes of weak bugs and can take out tankier targets if you focus on just them. If you’re not sure what to run for a bug-killing primary it can be a lot of fun, but it’s not “meta” like a real shotgun would be (but it’s still cool as hell).

        yeah it is. The main use for it is that it has really good armour penetration for a primary. Against bugs it will frick up anything other than chargers and bile titans. Against bots it kills everything except walkers hulks and tanks quickly, and is accurate enough to headshot walkers from the front. The main problem with it, as specified earlier, is projectile speed. It's noticeable. You will have to lead targets at mid range.

    Blitzer is nice but has a VEEEERY slow rate of fire. Maddeningly slow.

    The Dominator is a medium weight weapon so it's kinda slow to aim like the machine gun.
    Sickle and stun grenade from Cutting Edge are useful.
    I always run with Scorcher for bots and Slugger for bugs. Stun grenades pair well with the autocannon, and are great for getting enemies to hold still for an airstrike/orbital. It will even stun bile titans.

    JAR-5 is pretty much outclassed by the Slugger in the single bullet punch category and the Scorcher in the explosive category. You would think the “explosive” aspect would be worth something, but much like its younger brother the explosive liberator, it’s only really “explosive” in name and won’t get through the bot Scout Striders that the scorcher can. It looks cool firing, I’ll give it that. I haven’t used the Arc shotgun, so I’m not sure how it plays. Hear it’s fun though.

      Explosive damage with no splash lets you deal more or actually damage certain enemies/parts like vents on bot tanks and towers or kill charger ass and spewers without needing two whole mags on target.
      I think for chargers at least it was something moronic like non Explosive damage only deals 10% of its damage if you shoot its unarmored ass

      • 3 weeks ago

        Yeah they do, but no one plans to use their primary for a charger’s bussy sack. If you’ve resorted to doing that, it means EATs are on CD, Recoilless is out of ammo, strats are on CD, and no one brought a flamethrower. You can technically do that with Bile/Nursing Spewers too to negate the 10% dmg, but again, slugger to the face is a 3 shot for those and with bonus stagger to interrupt spewing.

        SV being shit is a big meme and I'm glad i never fell for it.

        At least the armor/capes are pretty cool looking, the Senator is fun, and a decent sized contingent of the player base are coping that the flame breaker is good vs bugs.

          The Dominator is great and the liberator concussive is decent at worst. The bonus throwing range is really useful, too.

                Oh, it’s ok. It’s not terrible but not the meta gun like I said others were coping with. The extra ammo capacity compared to the regular breaker is nice, but you need to be up close to have comparable damage. At that point, just use the Breaker SnP.

      You're aiming at the wrong part. Shoot the pelvis of the Strider, two or three shots should kill. The JAR is pretty good, I do wish it had a better scope instead of a meme burst fire mode.

Just take a look at the Diligence and the Counter Sniper. Or the Breaker and Spray & Pray. The scythe is pretty much pointless once you get the sickle

    I play for weird and fun (but not frustrating) loadouts. From my perspective, both are fun and decent, but not instantly easy to be extremely effective (hate the prenerf guns and Sickle for that).
    Jar-5 is like the Counter Sniper, but fun to use thanks to the better armor pen. You just lose the magnified optic and you need to learn to embrace the recoil.
    I have less time with the Blitzer, but it is weird and inconsistent but can be effective when it wants to be. It becomes fun by weapon swapping between shots with another lower ROF gun to make up for its atrociously slow fire rate. Currently I do this with the Senator but I plan on testing it with other weapons like the autocannon

        These fricking missions are moronic and give us the illusion of choice. The devs know how they want this to play out and won't let us change it.

            I LOVE when video games can't be beaten, its so fun to just not be able to win no matter what you do because le spicy dev's want to take away your ability to play the game. Just quadruple enemy health! That will stop people from just sprinting to objectives, never shooting once and only picking missions where you have to blow shit up and leave.

                No because Borderlands is a game for Plebbit homosexuals and I never played it, unlike you clearly homosexual.

            Totally different, you see. Very honorable. Small company. No shame in doing it while you're desperately trying to figure out the meta and fix the most basic fricking parts of the game.

      I think it's real, I experience that problem basically every time I play. I also notice that the missions on the planet map become "frozen" when this happens, even after leaving a 30 minute mission I will see the same lobbies from the same people on the map still open. Restarting fixes this

    I realized recently that I don't use anything in steeled veterans. I use the Sickle all the time except on hot planets and the stun grenades are pretty good if you bring something else to close bug holes and destroy fabricators. So cutting edge is definitely the better warbond for me.

        that doesn't seem good enough for something that takes an entire stratagem slot. if it can't lock down a spot for around 15 seconds, it doesn't seem worth it.

      It lasts 15ish seconds on a 50-second cool-down IIRC.
      Pretty decent though it's more to take out small groups (It's great for solo play imo) while the EMS mortar works better in bigger engagements.

      Airstrike and orbital laser are GOAT for taking out bases. Dropping a single laser into the middle of an enemy base will basically destroy it 4/5 times.

      For weapons, either Autocannon or EAT. Autocannon is great for handling bigger targets and EAT is the best support weapon in the game.

      The mech is terrible for bots, since they just shoot it until it explodes.

    Automatons are technically cyborgs, but specifically contain the brain/consciousness of captured innocent civilians and programmed to kill against their will.

    They're literally that robot boss from Wolfenstein, down to the design being almost identical to devastators.

    Rumor has it some bot voice lines are them literally screaming "I can't stop "and "help me". If anyone can prove that and provide audio files, that'd be great.

    But let me make this clear cause some guns are a waste of time.
    Blitzer is hot hot garbage. Can't even kill one hunter.
    Dominator is "useable" but has a weird aim where you'll miss shots that should it.
    Counter sniper is completely pointless.
    Penetraor is good.
    Slugger is top tier in the game along side the scorcher.
    Sickle is liberator but infinite ammo.

      About dominator, it has a very low bullet velocity compared to other weapons ( As the description said, it fires self propelled ammo that accelerate as it flys while conventional firearms have their bullet accelerate in barrel) So it feels tricky to use.
      Also the arc shotgun can one shot brood commander. But it still have shitty range and not good against swarms so yeah

    OP just watch a video on them and see which weapons you prefer.

    The two in your photo actually suck in practice. The explosive rifle kills yourself when you shoot bugs too close to your helldiver. The arc blitzer is a mini version of the superior strategem version.

    • 3 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      The Blitzer being a single-target version of the Arc Thrower would be an improvement. As is, it's just awful. Slugger and Punisher are better at single-target, and pretty much anything is better at multi-target.

      Terrible design decision to make it lots of small lightning bolts instead of a single large one. Means it has poor audiovisual feedback in addition to performing poorly.

    Me and my friends are going to be fighting bots for the first time this weekend after tackling bugs for 40+ hours. What stratagems should i bring?

    • 3 weeks ago

      Mortars are viable against bots. Airstrikes will take out tanks as well as factories, but you want something that can deal with hulks since they're unironically much more threatening than chargers. Autocannon and AMR can both two-tap hulks by shooting the eye, while Railgun can one-tap them with a full charge.

    • 3 weeks ago

      You should have asked how to fight them instead because it's very different from bugs. Additional bot objectives in particular are much deadlier than the bug ones.

    • 3 weeks ago

      Explosives, turrets, and something with armor piercing. Recoilless rifles, railguns, expendable anti-tanks, and autocannons are your best friends. Artillery is very helpful. Smoke bombs are VERY helpful, especially for covering you while you escape or reposition. Know that the bots have LOTS of heavy firepower and will absolutely use it if you piss them off. Pick your battles wisely.

      for weapons, the AMR, autocannon and laser cannon are all good. Autocannon might be your best shot at first.
      For big booms, 500kg, 380(for bases), walking barrage(for bases), orbital laser, eagle airstrike are all good

      slugger is amazing. I've heard the plasma weapon in the end of the normal pass is great but I don't have it myself

      There aren't currently enough uses for samples and requisition to merit their existence as separate resources, so I wouldn't be surprised if they add more systems to utilize them. Weapon upgrades like in HD1 would be the obvious choice.

    I wish the barrages for the 120/380 would happen faster, there's no reason for them to be this slow and lengthy. They're not really area denial stratagems because the enemies don't give a frick about them, so the long duration is more of a downside than anything. "Players cannot go in this area for another 30s or you will almost definitely die." would feel a lot less shitty if it was just 15 seconds instead.
    Speeding the barrages up would also make them feel better to use, the same number of explosions just over a shorter period of time makes monkey brain happy.

      Isn't the HMG an AP weapon? I would expect it underperform on the unarmored bots the same way the AMR does. I started running shotguns as my primary specifically to cover my ass if the berserkers manage to close the distance. Impact grenades work in a pinch, too.

        It doesn't appear to bounce on walker front armor, or devastators, at least, and it damages turret weakpoints, which is nice to have another weapon to deal with those. crouching, going prone, or using that reduce recoil armor perk is a definite must with it though. can bullseye enemies from pretty far away then.

    Quasar is kind of a neat EAT sidegrade. You don't have to wait for it to fully cool down before shooting again, you can start charging around 20%.
    It's nice to have access to it all the time, but not being able to instantly take down a charger that's in your face is huge drawback. Is it stronger against titans or the same?

      HMG is a pocket HMG turret, has the same armor pen but is limited by low ammo per mag stationary reload and one hell of a kick, can pen Strider armor and a Hulk's eye
      Quasar is everything good of both RR and EAT combined, really fricking good

              It doesn't have heavy armor penetration. The hmg is basically worse than the starting machine gun.

      That would make it completely useless compared to the EAT.

    Alright Quasar cannon.
    Turrets, 2 shots, front or vent doesn't matter
    Factories/bug holes, 1 shot, vent/hole only
    AA/mortar placements, 1 shot, front or back
    Tank, 2 shot turret vent, 3 shot thread vents.
    Seems to damage hulks from the front but not sure since I only met 1 on diff 7 for some reason and it might have been a very lucky eyeshot.
    Doesn't use backpack slot
    Unlimited ammo
    Bad:
    Doesn't go through heavy armor on bots (devastators shields, tank front/sides)
    Long charge time and cooldown between shots.
    Permanently uses the support slot.
    Standard support weapon cooldown so if you lose it, you're fricked.
    Low explosive radius, not good against chaff.
    Can't even one shot medium bots unless it's a headshot.

      I dont think this is right, I was one shotting devastators with it aiming for the chest. Maybe there's a small aoe of it to hit the head in that but it certainly doesn't need to be a direct headshot. Berserkers though are some how always the tankiest things the bots can throw at me.
      I'd say the best thing about it is it's a RR that you don't need to stand still to reload.

    Quasar is S++++++++++ against bugs, having a charger instagib on 10 sec cd that can also 2-3 shot titans is moronic, i'd imagine they'll nerf the recharge rate

    I still prefer railgun for bots, 1 hits hulks with ease, for everything else eagle air and laser will suffice

    Cutting Edge actually has useful shit in it and though the armor has a useless passive on it now, squids might make it relevant.

    Save for the Sickle, neither premium bond has useful primary weapons or secondary weapons. If the Revolver had a speed loader, was a true magnum power house, and didn't take like 8 seconds to reload to full it might be useful some of the time for Sickle users since they could swap to a strong secondary to slap scary shit like Stalkers / Spewers that their primary isn't spectacular at dealing with.

    I still pretty much exclusively run Slugger because someone needs to be dealing damage to medium armors and have stunlock against annoying frickers like Stalkers and Bile Spewers. Scorcher still best gun waifu against automatons though.

    Sorry EAT... Quasar cannon is my main squeeze now. It can cool down when you're not using it or keep it partially charge for a quick alpha strike on anything that shows up.

    Quasar isn't as good as people are hyping it up to be. If you're a fellow EATer, just think of how many chargers you've popped in the head the second it turned towards you, the second you realized it was charging you from behind, the second before it hit an ally, etc. Same with nailing a titan in the face the moment it starts puking or moves its leg out of the way when you're at an angle.
    It's a sidegrade in the sense that you never lose it for more than a few seconds and can waste it on things like bug holes, but the charge time is going to get people killed or force them to run around and wait for a much more convenient opening than the EAT requires.

      Yeah, it definitely feels more like a sidegrade.
      I probably won't run it much against bugs because getting orbital call in kills with the eat, or just leaving it for any other player to use in emergencies is too nice a trait.
      I'll definitely use it against bots because you can consistently shoot down drop ships without having to worry about needing a round for a tank/hulk down the line.

    plasma shotty is great for bots once you get the projectile arc down. blitzer is good for bugs, tears their limbs off. sickle is a good side grade for assault rifles and the dagger is weak as frick

    >It's another case of people don't know how to use one weapon and call it shit and another weapon is over hyped.
    The HMG is alright. It's an fine bot weapon because it can kill hulks on headshot and go through strider armor. It one taps basic units so if you treat it more like a heavy DMR and refrain from going full auto it's a good generalist bot weapon.
    The Quasar is a 10 second EAT that seems to not pierce certain heavy armors like dev shields or parts of the tank but otherwise pierces everything else.
    The 5 second charge-fire time is the biggest kicker here as the sights are awful and get obscured by the light from the cannon.
    It's really fricking good but that fire time, less targets than eat/rr, and sights obscuration while trying to line up a shot still gives me a reason to run either RR and EAT.

    Personally I would give the HMG more ammo per mag and have prone eliminate recoil more because of the bipod on the front.
    Heavy guns like the HMG tend to not really have that much kick up because of their weight anyways.

    Devs should never, EVER listen to shitters. Blowing the armor off a Charger's leg/side and using your primary to gun it down was fricking kino, and it might as well not even exist anymore.
