How To Refund Helldivers 2 On Steam

Facing too many issues and want to refund Helldivers 2? There is a simple way to do so on Steam if you meet the necessary criteria.

Although Helldivers 2 has impressed a lot of players with its gameplay, the server issues have really hampered their experience. The Helldivers 2 servers are often at full capacity and players are facing long queue times. These have led to unnecessary errors that players encounter almost all the time and as a result, players want to refund Helldivers 2 on Steam.

While Steam does not really allow refunds after two weeks or more than 2 hours of playtime, there is a way that players can still do so. Since the support is aware of the issues that the game has, they don’t really make a huge issue about it and process everything smoothly. If you are unaware of the process, this guide will help you with all the steps that you need to follow.

How to Refund Helldivers 2 on Steam

Originally, if you want to refund a game on Steam, you need to meet the criteria of purchasing the game less than two weeks ago and a playtime of less than 2 hours. However, since Helldivers 2 has so many server issues, Steam is a little lenient on players trying to refund the game. Those with playtime less than 10 hours have been able to refund Helldivers 2 easily without any issues.
