All Stratagems In Helldivers 2 And How To Unlock Them

Here are all the Stratagems that you can unlock in Helldivers 2.

One of the most chaotic things you can do to erase your enemy in Helldivers 2 is to use Stratagems. These are combat aids that are deployed from the Destroyer Ship once you have unlocked them. The good thing is that stratagems aren’t just normal weaponry that do all the blasting work, in fact, they cover six different areas on the battlefield. This might give you an idea of how effective this thing is. The only trouble is that you will have to unlock them before use. And that’s what we are here to help you with.

In this guide, we will tell exactly how you can unlock all the Stratagems in Helldivers 2.

How to Unlock All Helldivers 2 Stratagems

As I said, the Stratagems cover six different areas of the battle and those are:

  • Patriotic Administration Centre – Heavy Weapons
  • Orbital Cannons – Heavy firing from the Destroyer Ship
  • Hangar – Massive damage and boosted mobility
  • Bridge – Elemental damage attack
  • Engineering Bay – Offensive and Defensive equipment
  • Robotics Workshop – Sentries and other weapons

These are all the six categories of Stratagems that you can unlock in Helldivers 2. To do so, you will need to go to your Ship and interact with the Ship Management console. From there, enter the Stratagems section to purchase the one you like.
