Helldivers II Best Stratagems, Modules, Weapons and Controller Attachments for Maximum Democracy

by Troy Gloski 04 Mar 2024

We love most co-op shooter games, but the gameplay loop in Helldivers II is so simple and addicting that it keeps us coming back for more. Unlike some similar games, you don’t need a degree in data analysis to be the best helldiver you can be. Use this tips to buildout your loadout for each mission in the early game, while leveling, and in the endgame to spread maximum democracy! 


Before you dive into any mission, you want to make sure your controller is fully upgraded with the best attachments to set you up for victory. FPS Galaxy Thumbsticks maximize grip, comfort, and precision on any Xbox or Playstation controller. Our Galaxy Thumbstick packs come in Black, White, Purple, and Clear. Each pack contains one 6.5mm Mid-Rise Thumbstick for improved in-game movement control on the left stick and one 10mm High-Rise Thumbstick for increased accuracy and precision on the right stick. Depending on your sensitivity settings, your gameplay might benefit greatly from upgrading your controller with some KonrolFreek Precision Rings. These rings make it so the harder you push on your thumbsticks, the more the material will compact to cushion your stick, adding resistance, which prevents you from over-shooting your target and enables you to play on higher sensitivities without acceleration.

Armor in Helldivers II come in 3 strengths, Light, Medium, and Heavy. Each armor has a stat for Armor Rating, Speed, and Stamina Regen. Heavy armor will generally have a higher armor rating and lower speed and stamina regen, and vice versa for light armor. We recommend Light Armor for almost every mission, because the movement in Helldivers II can seem a little slow and unforgiving at times. When you’re trying to outmaneuver a rampaging Charger, you’ll want that extra speed, and it will cut down on time spent traversing the map for resources and objectives. 

Every Armor also comes with Armor Passive Traits, which can enhance your gameplay. Our favorite Armor Passives increase the amount of grenades and stims you can carry, which can both be immensely useful. You can purchase new armor from your Warbond Progression page, which rotates daily, so keep an eye out for armor with the stats and passives you are looking for! 

You can also purchase new weapons through the Warbond Progression page. We rarely recommend in-game purchases, but Helldivers II is a cheaper game with a lot of potential. The weapons in the Premium Warbond Progression are so good that we recommend purchasing the premium warbonds and unlocking these weapons as fast as possible. 

AR-23E Liberator Explosive – Explosive AR for Armored Enemies 

SG-225IE Breaker Incendiary – Shotgun with Fire Damage for Armored Enemies 

P-19 Redeemer – Automatic Secondary Weapon 

G-10 Incendiary – Fire Grenades for AOE Damage 

Helldivers II is a super fun game to play with your friends and the progression system can really hook you, so get out there and spread some democracy Helldiver!
