Helldivers 2 new Warbond launches March 14, first look at new weapons, armor, and more

Greetings, fearless heroes of galactic democracy! Steel yourself for the next big push against the disgraceful enemies of freedom with our new Warbond – Cutting Edge*.

Packed with high-voltage vibes, Cutting Edge gives you the chance to enhance your loadout of liberty with ultra-futuristic armour, guns that spit lightning, super stylish capes and epic emotes.

Super Earth R&D experiments

Helldivers… we need your help. The brainiacs in Super Earth Research & Development have some cool experimental armor ready to be field-tested. This is where you come in, you’re just the right people for the job.

The EX Series Prototypes

EX-03 Prototype 3

Includes a rubber underlayer for insulation. Handy, really, as this prototype’s wires operate at a shocking 400,000 volts.

EX-16 Prototype 16

Warning: Electric arc generates a strong magnetic field. Avoid use while near stapled paperwork.

EX-00 Prototype X

The end result of several billion Super Credits and 12 years of research into creating “the Soldier of Tomorrow”. Show us it was worth it.

Expanded arsenal

R&D didn’t stop at armor, though. They’re also rolling out a new series of alien-splitting weapons with electrifying perks!

LAS-16 Sickle

A sweet laser rifle that fires in short bursts. And it doesn’t need reloading. Just watch for overheating or shove a new heatsink in there.

SG-8P Punisher Plasma

Exploding plasma rounds sound deadly… because they are, to aliens and allies! This modified Punisher shotgun is as fun as it is fearsome.

ARC-12 Blitzer

Project an arc of close-range lightning, or charge it up to fire off powerful bolts. Good for taking out multiple targets and giving you more time to pick a celebration emote.

And you can unlock a new stun grenade, the G-23 Stun, and the LAS-7 Dagger pistol.

I know what I’ll be doing… equipping the LAS-7 Dagger AND LAS-16 Sickle at the same time, turning my Helldiver into a real live wire and melting the foes of Managed Democracy on sight.

But we’ve got to do this with a touch of style, right? Get creative and accessorize your armor sets with three new capes, featuring matching colors and designs.

My favorite is the Botslayer: a light tan cape that will no doubt look great soaked in Automaton oil.

There are even matching player cards for each cape, as well as three new emotes.

Cutting Edge is rolling out to your Destroyer’s Acquisitions panel March 14, soldiers.

Get ready to spill some oil in style. Prepare for deployment.
