Helldivers 2: Galactic War Unveiled

In the vast expanse of the galaxy, a relentless war rages on. As a devoted Helldiver, your duty transcends planetary boundaries. The enemy encroaches, and the battle intensifies. Welcome to the Galactic War in Helldivers 2—a dynamic, ever-evolving conflict where freedom and democracy hang in the balance.

The Galactic War Mechanism

  1. Objective: Your mission is clear—to liberate and spread democracy across all galactic sectors and planets. The War Table aboard the Destroyer serves as your strategic hub. Head to the bridge, veer right from your cryopod, and there it awaits. The Galactic War unfolds in cycles, with each cycle spanning an unspecified duration. In the previous Helldivers installment, wars typically lasted 20 to 50 days. This time, Arrowhead Studios promises a more deliberate pace, although specifics remain undisclosed.
  2. Factions and Territories:
    • Automaton: The robotic army, their territories ablaze in crimson, awaits your challenge if you venture left from the War Table.
    • Termininds: The insectoid menace occupies yellow-hued sectors to the right. Prepare for bug-like invasions and relentless skirmishes.
  3. Planet Liberation:
    • Choose a sector and planet for your Helldiver team’s intervention.
    • Each planet hosts a series of Operations, comprising one to three Missions. These Missions vary in complexity, from planting Super Earth flags to annihilating Automatons or Termininds.
    • Difficulty matters: Easy tasks involve straightforward objectives, while Hard mode demands multi-layered feats—picture battling colossal mechs, obliterating bug hives, and escorting civilians amidst a barrage of rockets and acid blasts.
  4. Rewards and Progress:
    • Successfully complete Mission objectives, extract from the planet, and earn Requisition Points and XP.
    • Finish an entire Operation, and you’ll be rewarded with Warbond Medals. Moreover, your efforts contribute to the planet’s liberation progress.
    • As planets fall to the enemy or rise to freedom, the entire Helldivers 2 community advances in their collective Galactic War endeavors.

The Ongoing Saga

The Galactic War persists until factions’ Homeworlds are conquered. Defeating a faction temporarily removes them from the equation until the next cycle begins. Remarkably, the Helldivers 1 Galactic War has endured over 130 cycles at the time of writing12.

So, fellow Helldiver, gear up, rally your comrades, and forge ahead. The galaxy awaits your unwavering resolve. Democracy and liberation hang in the balance—will you be the beacon of hope?
