How to Unlock All Stratagems in Helldivers 2


In Helldivers 2, Stratagems are vital combat support abilities deployed from the Destroyer ship. They are categorized into six types: Patriotic Administration Centre, Orbital Cannons, Hangar, Bridge, Engineering Bay, and Robotics Workshop. Each category focuses on a different battlefield area, from heavy weaponry to defensive equipment and robotic sentries. Here is everything you need to know about unlocking all Stratagems in Helldivers 2:

Unlocking Stratagems in Helldivers 2

Stratagems are unlocked as you progress in the game, gaining experience and completing operations. Each Stratagem has a credit cost, which can be earned through operations and Orders. Players must be mindful of friendly fire, as each Stratagem can damage teammates.

Higher levels unlock more advanced Stratagems like the Railgun, Orbital Laser, and the Shield Generator Pack. These require higher levels and more credits. Selecting the right Stratagems for each mission is crucial. Players should consider their role, team composition, and the mission’s objective when choosing Stratagems.

Stratagems are categorized into six modules, each focusing on different combat aspects:

  1. Patriotic Administration Centre: Heavy, powerful weaponry.
  2. Orbital Cannons: Heavy artillery fire.
  3. Hangar: Explosive damage and mobility.
  4. Bridge: Elemental damage.
  5. Engineering Bay: Offensive and defensive equipment.
  6. Robotics Workshop: Sentries and automated defenses.

You can edit your Stratagem selection at the Ship Management console in the Destroyer and confirm your loadout after operation selection.

Most Stratagems are unlocked by leveling up through completing operations in Helldivers 2. Each Stratagem has a credit cost, which you can earn by completing Operations and Orders. Certain Stratagems require Requisition Slips, obtained from successful missions.
