Stratagems require a code to be typed in before being deployed. Read on to see the list of all Stratagem codes in Helldivers 2.

When it comes to dispensing Democracy, Helldivers 2 has it all. You can shoot your freedom-hating enemies, blast them with explosives, burn them, or call in your local Destroyer spaceship to do it for you.

Stratagems are a way of getting new supplies from your Ship (like heavy Support Weapons) or calling in some orbital bombardments. And, to make it more engaging, you must type in a unique code to request a Stratagem. Is it harder than just clicking a single button? Yes. Is it more fun? Also yes. So, with that in mind, here are the codes for every Strategem in Helldivers 2.

Each Stratagem in Helldivers 2 requires you to type in a special code to request it. There are over 50 Staratagems in the game, for now.
