        Completely. I thought the same thing, but probably more than half the player base just plays with randos and it's still fun. You can also play solo if you know how, and that's engaging too.

    You can say thanks to the stupid justice warriors of internet for Helldivers 2.

    Everyone could create psn accounts anywhere (for some reasons, stupid guys thought entire regions didnt have any psn, that mean no way of playing online AT ALL ON PLAYSTATION CONSOLES, even with account from somewhere else), but now because of this stupid drama, you get this result, with Sony (and Steam?) who dont want problems anymore, so they just lock out all these country.

    Great job ! Clap clap.

      Sony is fricking dumb for requiring any PSN account at all for their PC games they released or going to release. They should have shut up and just rake in the money from people buying their shit games instead of having those people pirating it instead.

              No he's right. Plasma punisher is amazing. Every primary has a drawback, and you're right in stating that it takes 5 shots to take out heavies, but it also stuns groups, kills light infantry, has tons of ammo, reloads rapidly, and has good range. To discard all of these excellent features — primarily the ability to rapidly stun mobs of highly armored enemies — is imprudent. Just have a support weapon that can finish the job. Essentially the plasma punisher becomes an excellent supporting weapon, while your support, say, the AMR, deals DPS as needed. It's just patently incorrect to say the plasma punisher has no utility. It's extremely useful against mobs, devastators, berserkers, etc.

          In my experience safe drop zones don't EXIST on 9s. You think you dropped in a spot with no enemies? Jammer. Or worse a Spotting tower. Better to drop somewhere you know you're going to meet resistance than drop into an unknown.

            D9 isn't really any different to lower tiers, its just that there will be chargers on POI's and side objectives as well as patrols that you can land on. If you want to avoid the POI mobs and side objectives like jammer towers, and only risk patrols, drop near the edge of an objective, side objective or to the side of the landing pad AND near the edge of the map. Both the edge and the map visible objectives/extract have a large radius around them that cannot spawn side objectives or POI's, though all but the edges have their own objective adds, but if you drop off to the side towards the edge of the map you can avoid them.

            Most people drop into the open non red areas, but those are the spots the game spawns the side stuff after all. The red spots are just normal bases.

                They didn't used to be, but yeah they do now. They spawn randomly near the start though.

                Funny enough, the fire tornados use the EXACT same pathing the mobs use to patrol walk to your last location, so if you want less fire on the objective stay away from it 45seconds ago.
                This also means if you die to a fire tornado on solo or duo anything dropped in the fire will likely be in the fire for a full 2 minutes.

            Yeah you should anticipate that there will be a bot drop/bug breach the moment you land, so once you do and it appears you bail out somewhere else, then call down your stuff. If your team is really good they can neutralize the guards and prevent those initial reinforcements, but don't expect it. Also in 8 and 9 the reinforcement cooldown is so low that you probably won't be able to clear reinforcements before more are called in, so I usually don't bother and just run away.

              Skill issue. I regularly clear bugs completely on d9 with 4.
              I can even clear breaches solo d9, but only on maps with chokepoints where I can abuse incen breaker and flamethrower. Also AT turret is disgusting at clearing them and keeping your back clear when doing objectives, I never not take it now because it kills literally everything besides some bot enemies.

      Is there any reason to pick the AMR over the Autocannon though?

      Frees up a backpack slot and gives you better zoom with a SIGNIFICANTLY better sight. Also it is much better at providing fire support at range. It works fantastically with the ballistic shield.

          So glad I gave the jump pack a chance. Is it THE BEST backpack? No, that's probably the shield generator, but that motherfricking jet pack is so goddamn fun. Climb small surfaces, up cliffs, onto buildings, away from enemies, off big-ass ledges, make grand escapes, move faster. It's just a fun-ass toy. I'd literally rather play worse with it than use a boring but meta shield

      It's great at teamkilling. It also staggers mobs other than chargers and titans to frick and 1-3 shots brood mothers to the head, 2 shots NON armored spewers to the head while staggering any spit animation and spitting, and staggering mobs behind it. It staggers the frick out of stalkers too. It's a nice CC.
      It hits in a cone with 5 darts, if any mob is within the cone it has a chance of being hit, this includes mob corpses. For this reason you need to aim higher than you expect against enemies, since then only the mobs are in the cone not the corpses underneath, always aim high so only the mobs you want to hit are in it.

      It has issues:
      >It's lack of range vs shriekers meaning they often hit you even if you kill them in midair during the dive.
      >Takes 1-8 shots to the head to kill an armored bile spewers, literally who the frick knows why
      At least it staggers them
      >3-4 shots to kill a hive guard
      >Often targets corpses not live mobs
      >Will sometimes target less important mobs and not the hunter you want to prioritise, and will randomly sometimes take 3 hits not the usual 1 to kill even a hunter, inconsistent.
      >There is a bug where it can misfire according to the devs, I've only really had an issue at short range but I've had it happen once or twice.

      I took it into D9, with a good team doing most of the DPS and you using other things to kill heavies it's good to keep you alive from chaff and meds and to CC for others, but the incen breaker is way better at both of those things and doesnt come with the drawbacks.

      You are almost always retreating with it btw even against scavengers.

          It is for the blitzer though, they sit just outside of the range of the thing anyway. I know the range from using it on ground enemies, they're just out of reach by 5-10m.
          Honestly I just duck and weave till I kill the spawn but I'm always left with my dick clearing out the 5737 shriekers left over as they hit me almost every time I kill one because their corpses still hit you for the same damage as a hit and you're standing still firing to kill them so you will get hit.

      Grenade in the vents at the top of the fabricator. Non-impacts are easier to land. You can use an autocannon/grenade launcher/etc too, but for the autocannon you have to bounce the shot off the vent flaps.

      destroying outposts = destroying fabricators (equivalent to bug holes)
      chuck a grenade in the vent. impacts work if you're good.
      ricochet your autocannon off the fabricator vent; shoot your recoilless into the vent.

      eagle airstrikes, 110 rockets, and even eagle smoke bombs will destroy fabricators.
      orbital precision, laser, and ofc the barrages will too.
      that being said, that pillar in your screenshot is nothing, so if there's no fabricators there then that red patch on your map is just a glitch.

      The entire outpost or just the fabs?
      If you want to try to destroy the entire outpost the 120 mm and 380 mm barrages are okay at doing that especially the smaller to medium sized one.
      If you just want to clear out the fabs then you'll need to destroy those at the vents with grenades if you are in the outpost otherwise if you want to destroy it from afar then you need to use like the eruptor or spear and shoot them the eruptor can destroy a fab if you can shoot it in the vents, using the airstrike, rocket pod, laser cannon, railcanon strike, and various other stratagems can take out the fab from afar as long as you can sneak up and throw the stratagem near the fab and then run away before getting noticed by the bots.

        are the 3 main good ones. EMS Mortar is a useful utility as well, gives you breathing room.

        >Rocket
        >Machinegun
        are kinda pointless. Autocannon is better than Rocket at anit-armor and it doesn't have the annoying backblast; Machinegun is just a toned-down Gatling which puts out less fire (but also has lower TK potential).
        Tesla is basically irrelevant rn.

        Try to put your turrets off to the flanks of breaches/drops, on an elevated position, or really just anywhere advantageous that provides a clear line of fire with enough distance to not be airstriked by teammates/bumrushed by enemies.

        EMS turret is a good one to have.
        Mortar turret can be good on specific missions like the defense mission but can be a double edge sword if you are surrounded the mortars are gonna be coming after you or your teammates.
        Autocannon and rocket turret is good against medium and heavy enemies.
        The tesla towers are really good for the tower defense mission and when we had the activate TCS missions. Otherwise they are not used too often in my loadout.
        Machine gun and Gatling turrets were my goto early on but in higher difficulties they just can't keep up with the swarm and run out of ammo asap.
        The really weak ones to me are the land mines I rarely used it and only one time I liked it was for the activate TCS mission.

        I pretty much only ever use the AC turret and Mortar. Gatling teamkills more than not, rockets don't seem to do enough, EMS is situational but occasionally useful.

        Thanks anons, so AC and Mortar I'll give a spin, and I've not done an arena mission yet but if I do I'll remember to bring along Arc and see how that handles

            Yes, change your keyboard keys for the stratagem command input to your arrow keys. The default is to WASD, the same keys for movement, so you will have to stop to input the stratagems.

            Placement of both is key, flat open areas for AC or high points. Mortars get extra range from height and can be behind cover (recommended due to chargers and titans), AC gets more accurate and survivable the further away from mobs you put it with clearer lines of sight and with height, since even misses will splash the ground nearby instead if it's on something tall.
            Fair warning, both will teamkill you easily if you get in their way or near an enemy.

            Thanks anons, appreciate the help...I can feel my survivability increasing already

      Actually the worst gun in the game. The damage is so low that you don't kill scavengers (the smallest bugs) in a single shot half the time, which invalidates its increased round count.

      It also fills no niche, it has no place; medium armor penetration but very low damage, there is NO enemy in the game that requires medium pen AND is squishy enough for you to kill it without having to pump several mags into it.

      I don't know if there was a nerf/fix to how the shield turret works but there was a time where it was used to bait the horde including the chargers and bile titian to it and you can handle the swarm much easier as the AI would automatically think thats the most important thing to attack.

      I personally never tried this tactic but it is true the AI does hate any turrets and will focus on that.

      Learn placement. I have never had an issue with AC because I never drop it anywhere near where it could get killed by a charger without it killing it first.
      Place them on high spots or in the open. On small "kill x" maps with the close quarters feel and the raised area don't bother bringing them unless it's the open style map, or you are with others protecting the open center area under the high spot. Even so a charger might sneak past due to how many places the mobs can come from.
      If its the other small "kill x" map without all the oppressive cover, you can stick them on the edges of the map and they do well there because they can see everything and have the distance to turn to shoot things.

      All turrets need you to protect them against what they're shit at dealing with. I fiten have to protect my AC from chaff overwhelming it or distracting it away from chargers and bile titans because turrets get stuck on killing the first mob they prioritise and then ignore other bigger ones till that one is dead.

Bile Titans are considered "medium" enemy types, and Factory Striders are lowly enough to be summoned with bot drops; naturally this means our firepower has to get bigger, badder, and stronger right? That's where our ship upgrades seem to be headed: more bombs per airstrike, more fire/arc damage, 100% ammo from resupplies; all upgrades to keep you in the fight.
    At that point, is powercreep that valid a concern, especially right now? Frick it make the railgun godly and the slugger stagger again, doesn't make a difference if you need bombing runs to kill the 2 factory striders on top of you.

      The devs are just moronic and there's no point trying to divine what they are thinking. The factory strider is supposed to be some kind of boss enemy but when you take out the machine guns anyone with an AC can just go below it, dump a mag into the underside and blow it up in like 5 seconds.

You got other recommendations for 4 player co-op that I might not have already tried to get people into? I'm pretty open to most games, they're mostly into survival crafters, fps, and when we're not always out of the house, mmos. Other recent plays everyone actually stuck it out to clear the game were elden ring, monster hunter world, remnant 2, divinity 2, BG3, some local co-op like crawl and some other I can remember at the moment.

      And no, I'm not just going to replace my house mates for their taste in games guys.

      No it doesn't need a shield, it just need to deal less damage to player when destroyed. I can survive railgun explode in my hand, rocket deal trivial damage to me, but when a rocket hit the hmg I die??? It just doesn't make sense. Ideally they should add half second grace period for mech so player can eject and die to impact damage instead. However dev is so incompetent I doubt they can code that in.

          NTA the SC exploit is out but it can still be easy.
          Any level 1 mission. it helps to bring people who are also farming. Hit every poi and just abort and find a new horse.
          Steeled veteran has breaker incendiary I believe and the incendiary grenade which I enjoyed. Cutting edge has the Sickle.
          I'm sure there are better weapons people will rip me apart over. Sickly is pretty much a must for versatility.
          Last warbond I farmed took me under two hours with two people. It's doable.

            >Do they cost money to buy?
            They cost the MTX "Super Credits" to buy, 1000 per warbond. You can either buy Super Credits at the ingame store for real money ($10 for 1000) or find Super Credits in caches on the map as you play the game, and accumulate them that way. I own all the warbonds and the only thing I paid was for the game itself.

            10 euros and you can't farm them fast enough with the ingame currency unless you are one of those who abused farming glitches.

              Breaker incendiary's good against bugs. A Youtuber I like called OhDough swears by the dominator but it handles like fricking shit. It has concussive power but I hate it. I'm also extremely overtly biased toward the plasma punisher. It's hard to say because a lot of it is personal preference. Stun grenades are strategic utilities meant to buy you a few precious seconds in the heat of combat.

              Also, it's funny how almost every gun in this game gets run by someone, no matter how trash it is. This game is weird like that

        I make 700sc yesterday dropping into bug desert planet blitz missions and farming POIs then leaving with a freind for an hour.

        You get 20-60sc a mission, you don't even have to farm, just do POIs like you should be for ammo and samples when you're on any map and the SC comes naturally.
        Yes you can't abuse seeds anymore, but you can still drop in to farm d3.
        Hell I only farmed (again for barely any time at all) because I want literally every single cosmetic in the store. I only needed lvl 58 and I'd bought every single warbond including PP for free prior to even considering it. I also now have 1000sc for the next warbond and that only took an hour too.

      How come I rarely see that many people running the Autocannon? It's always shieldshitters and quasargays instead. It's so damn versatile, I'll usually run off from the team on helldives and clear half the map myself with it.

      Requires the ability to aim it well, which for console gays is aids let me tell you, and it also gets fliched too easy.

It also doesn't lock onto shreiker nest which is probably it's biggest downside but against bots specifically it's a delete everything gun.

        spear one shots BTs most of the time if you become a certified speargay and play with it enough. there's a point at close range in which you can aim up and the missile shoots straight up into its mouth and its a one shot 99% of the time. also has other tricks to clap it in one shot at other ranges, just needs practice.
        if you buffer the lock on by holding the fire button as you reload and aim sideways you can even arc the missile sideways instead of sending it straight up, which has been useful in some edgecases. you just kinda have to take stun grenades to get distance from chargers unless you take eat or like jockying for its butthole using plasma punisher or something

      Correct, that means it works, and if it works it would be nerfed, they will make it 15 second reload and only able to fire 50m from the target, half the time it will hit a trooper.

      Autocannon is the thing you should always bring against bots but I don't like using my backpack slot on a support weapon when I could be having fun with a jump pack instead or taking a liberator drone with me so I don't need to even look at the fodder when I'm killing things so I just take a railgun instead

            it has the same effectivness as the rocket but doesnt take a backpack slot meaning you can run shield or jetpack while having the same firepower

      1) Allow people "not carrying" the ammo backpack to reload from your backpack (same with AT)
      2) Reload time cut in half or allow to reload while running.
      3) Reduce cool-down time to request 15-30 secs (apply to all other support weapons too)

      I use it on the minas tirith defence map alongside an AT turret. Great when you have cover and reload cancel, it just has better ammo conversion since you get a full load from one ammo box, with the upgrade that is.

      >Has to stand still to charge it and will get flinched
      The only downside is the backpack, with reloads from a resupply upgrade RR is superior to all but EAT static burst damage, with teammates covering your reloads it's better by a long shot and it has easier sustainment damage with literally 5x the DPS.
      I use EATs for bugs just for a shield though d9, but quasar on low difficulties.

      Meh I like it, keeps me in the fight with pubbies and it gives me more leeway with dodging chargers and spewers more casually.

It is a bloody horde shooter where you are discouraged from engaging in combat except: A) How the devs intended it, B) When the devs intended it, and if you don't do that, you're playing it wrong and it is all your fault for not having fun.
