HELLDIVERS 2

Quasar Cannon is pretty good but a little overrated. It has no AoE, does no damage to non-weakpoints, and has a slow charge up and cooldown.

I genuinely believe the people here who say it's broken play on difficulty 5 or below.

Heavy Machine Gun is overly hated imo.

        Weather supposedly helps with detection range. I know for sure that bots get less vision during night than they have during the day.

        Accuracy seems to be more tied to range than anything else. At 70 meters it took about 20 shots for a rocket guy to hit me when I was trying to test armor earlier.

        Feels like a lot of the major order planets have had garbage visibility recently. I think between meteor showers, volcanoes, fire tornadoes, earthquakes, etc... low visibility is just the worst.

      They do not know or want to balance the game to actually be fun with regards to bots.
      >just aim for the head
      Did that, they're still bullet sponges, assuming you can actually still hold your aim on the head because you flinch like you have PTSD with literally anything happening in the game at all. And every bot on the map will snipe you from far outside your own detection range without warning.
      I don't know if the suppressor guns will matter at all when they drop since the stealth mechanics just don't matter with half the shit the game does. Patrols nonstop spawn in and walk toward you on purpose so that you're never allowed to try to wait things out. Enemies have no stamina issues so no matter how long you run, you cannot lose them except by breaking line of sight, good luck on the maps with no cover, or worse the maps that funnel everything into narrow canyons, though I think those are more on the bug side, so far.

    The HMG is ass, bro.

    • 3 weeks ago

      the HMG is unironically better against bugs than against bots. Against bots it can't do shit that the basic MG can't already do except go through walker front plates and that's totally useless. People say you can headshot hulks with it but it's not accurate enough to actually do that reliably.
      against bugs it dicks over every bug immediately. Even crushers eat shit if you shoot their legs, and you can shred a bile titan's undercarriage in one burst. The accuracy doesn't matter as much when they can't shoot back and you can just lie down and line up shots.

      >Heavy MG
      >"Hey lets take the negatives of the normal MG and make them double worse"

      >>"Hey lets take the negatives of the normal MG and make them double worse"
      It really is just godawful.
      If I need to kill something by dumping my entire mag, I'd bring an EAT/Recoilless.
      If I need to pace my shots over multiple targets, I'd use my primary.
      If I need to constantly be out of ammunition, I'd take an autocannon and tell a random to carry my backpack.

      Why can't I have a vague shotgun-like reticule if I'm not in first person? Why am I allowed to fire it if I'm not supposed to outside of first person?

      Maybe it exists to blitz bile spewers but it certainly does nothing versus bots. And if you pick a difficulty where you have enough targets to warrant using it, you're facing enemies that ask you to bring the only real guns in the game.

    Nobody wants to go against robots because they make the game feel like its out of your control. 90% of the times you die against bugs, its because you didn`t play well, got surrounded or overwhelmed. Against bots 90% of the deaths are due to some random bullshit happening that instantly kills you before you could ever possibly react, like some random missile coming from 200 meters away and hitting you even though you're crouched behind cover

      Nah you're the tard in this case. On high difficulty you don't waste time and ammo fighting breaches and bot drops on non-objectives. You move away to the next objective.

                That's why you take something for emergencies. Really if you're the GL, you should pal up with someone who has dedicated anti-armor. You clear the chaff, and he takes care of what you can't. Teamwork makes the dream work.

                How the frick is that any different from literally every other person playing the game? What's stopping you from bringing an EAT? I understand if you want to take the RR or the Quasar as dedicated anti-tank. That's fine. But trying to argue that the GL is helpless against armored enemies is just silly when there's a 70s second cooldown that deals with bile titans or chargers.
                People still bring the flamethrower against bugs event though it can do frick all against bile titans(They bring AT)
                People still bring the arc thrower even though it takes 15+hits to kill a bile titan (They bring AT)

                that's a waste of 2 slots just so I can bring the GL to deal with hordes that are already pretty easily dealt with, I'd rather just bring the AT and keep it on me so I don't have to disengage and wait for the drop every time I come across a charger or bile which is still pretty frequently on the higher difficulties. Going back to the original point using impacts against spewers is just the better option in my eye cause you're not either sacrificing 2 slots or having to rely on your friend or randoms to deal with the big guys cause the GL just can't(well it can deal with chargers but in a very very shitty way).

    After playing about 5 missions with it, the HMG is very underwhelming. The fact that it can take out heavier enemies is nice, but it runs out of ammo way too quickly and the recoil is awful unless you're prone. I'll try to git gud with it, but once they send us back to bug space I'm switching back to my MGfu.

      The autocannon is still vastly superior in firepower. Quasar is nice but it doesn't really compare to the output of the autocannon, especially when considering the lack of AOE of the quasar. The cooldown is not negligible either, you get one blast that will kill one enemy then have to swap to something else for the rest. AC can kill entire groups of small/medium enemies in one mag.

          It kind of feels like an EAT for people who just can't be assed to continually call down EATs. The real issue is the RR, it kinda feels like the recoilless is outclassed by the quasar entirely, at least until they decide to allow team reloaders to just use the ammo from the backpack of the guy carrying the weapon.

      you probably meant recoilless not autocannon, in which case it kind of is. It's not as disposable as the EAT but it can put out more fire faster if you need to put out more than two shots unless you built a huge guerilla stockpile trail of them and can follow it, it can't put out assisted reload rapid burst fire like the RR but has no backpack to deal with and unassisted it will fire not much slower and with the extenuating circumstances of having to kite, reposition, and possibly reload in multiple stages instead of in one go, substantially faster since it cools down passively, unless it's a hot planet.

      The autocannon is in a completely different role of stomping every spewer, hive guard, brood commander, devastator, scout strider, and berserker mob into the fricking dirt very swiftly while pasting all the smaller enemies surrounding them with shrapnel, opening vaults fast like an explosive slugger to save grenades, destroying bug holes & fabricators at a very comfortable distance with the same grenade savings, and killing or crippling select anti-tank targets like cyborg radiators or popping charger & spewer sacks under favorable circumstances.

    Nice thing about bringing a second secondary like the EAT, is if you die and lose your primary secondary, you have a spare you can pull out of your back pocket so you're not hanging around useless while you're waiting for your primary to cool down.

      do you not just go pick up your shit when you respawn? The only case I can think of where I don't is when I was across the map and was respawned by a team mate extremely far from where I died. There have been a very few rare instances against bots where I haven't been able to get my stuff back or at least not without sitting around taking out bots for longer than i'd like.

      It isn't identical to the other MGs, though, the heavy 100% pens medium armor to the point where you can kill striders through their front plate and bodyshot devastators to death.

      The armor penetration is pretty great against bots. It can kill hulks with like 6 headshots, striders in a few dickshots, turrets and tanks if you dump about a third of the mag into their back, and mulches devestators.

      It's an answer to a question that no one is actually asking. What actual useful role would a gatling support weapon fill that isn't already filled by something else?

      The only reason people want a gatling gun, is because they imagine themselves hosing down hordes with it like the TF2 heavy. The thing is, fundamentally as an idea, that's not really balanced though, is it? In order to work it needs a very high rate of fire and a very high ammo capacity, otherwise what's the point?

      If you do give it that though, then what's the point of the other machine guns?

        Being able to fire on the move, being able to fire while prone, firing rounds with more penetrative power, not taking five years to reload etc.

        You could even make it so that you simply couldn't dive with the gatling gun, or have it take up both weapon slots (since it would make little sense to be able to stow the gatling on your back).

          What role does it fill, since you can't run with it, you can't prone with it. it doesn't penetrate, etc.

          if it does have a niche, it's in being a weapon that you can't reload. Which is to say it has a single 600 (or whatever) round magazine that you can fire continuously until it is exhausted, at which point you just call in a whole new minigun.

      really if you overheat you just get an extra 7 seconds tacked onto the reload
      or just make it like the Autocannon but instead of one single round it's like a Autocannonshotgun that shoots super buckshot.

        I don't think assist would work well for it, maybe you can't prone and shoot if you have the backpack on?

    Lore question: How are the Helldivers justified?
    Why not send in the actual army, which exists?
    Why only four Helldivers at a time? I'd understand if they were some elite crack squad, but each super destroyer holds dozens/hundreds of frozen helldivers and there are thousands of super destroyers.

      The super earth government is afraid of a helldiver backed coup. They are equipped with a killswitch whenever there's more than 4 of them active in an area. This ensures that there's never enough of them to overpower the regular government forces.

          They're not incompetent, per se. They're stupidly loyal due to indoctrination, meaning they routinely sacrifice themselves for the empire they have been conditioned to serve unquestioningly.

          In other words, if there is an objective that needs completing, a Helldiver will call in ordnance onto his own location if it means completing the objective.

      Either they've made changes to how liberation progress works or the situation has caused some caps that were present to be removed.

        Needing to waste 2 stratagem slots just to make 1 weapon good is moronic. The HMG should've come with its own ammo backpack with the ammo belt linked so no reload but it's balanced by how unwieldy it is to use this. But instead we have a shitty brick that has ammo problems and does not do enough damage to justify it drawbacks

      Scanner towers can ignore the time limit but if you have one guy be a hero and have the scanner lock onto him while also being out of sight of the drops, you can breeze through the mission. Best done with jetpack while being on top of a rock + having the lower detection chance armor. Just go prone on the rock after the sensor sees you and all the bots falling out of the ships will just walk off in random directions and despawn if nothing triggers them. They might walk around and smash things looking for you but if you keep your cool they won't find you and go away. Also make sure you're not doing this near an objective or extraction for obvious reasons.

      The Warbond in May has already been leaked as Primitive/tribal theme stuff. There's like a picture of the dagger pistol but it has like tiger fangs taped on. Also a new armor set that looks like some tribal armor with a teeth necklace. I'm guessing they will also release the secret acid planet with acid rain on it

        Why would Helldivers dress up like RE5 enemies?

          Smearing mud and bug blood on your armor, or strapping chitin to your armor is kino. To me it seemed more 'trophy hunter' than 'tribal'.

    It's fine, as long as you take a primary that can make up for its deficiencies.

    I play on 7 and the quasar is great against any heavy bot/gun encampment in the game. just get one or 2 dudes on medium duty and have 2 quasars for any turrets/tanks/hulks and shit is a breeze.

    I want them to buff crouched machine gunning. Im quite good at aiming without being a god. When I was using the railgun I would consistently hit weak points. But the machine gun feels too random, wasting too many bullets to do decent damage. I know it would be too OP if shooting standing was easy, but going prone for more than a second or two is way too dangerous in this game so I think crouching is a good balance.

      Usable if 95%~ resistance to fire. Trash if 95%~ resistance to gas. Still baffled they went with a weapon that reduces shock damage when no enemies deal shock damage

    AMR + supply pack + eagle and one free slot against bot
    Magdump devastators around their head don't bother to precisely aim unless you are trying to kill hulk. Use eagle to take out fabs tanks and dropship reinforcements. I have been playing against boys this way and it is pretty good

    They need to add another gadget slot. A belt or a small bot following you around like the gun drones. Im fine with higher difficulty than 9 but I want to feel elite. I dont feel elite just running around and gunning things. I want more cool stuff.

    Is the riot shield still completely useless. Last time I tried it it didnt block anything. Even hunters leaping at you was doing full damage despite riot shield being up.

      Operations are the highlighted missions on a planet. You'll hover over it and it'll say it's an operation in the description.
      They're sets of 2-3 missions. You have to beat all of them to actually complete the operation.
