Wondering what are the best upgrades for your Destroyer? Read this article to see what is our tier list for the best Ship Modules in Helldivers 2.

There are so many ways you can deliver death and destruction in Helldivers 2. Of course, you got your trusty Liberator, but most of the fun comes from Stratagems, which you use to request Support Weapons, Orbital Strikes, and Sentries, and that is just the beginning. Furthermore, you can improve those Stratagems by unlocking various Ship Modules. Naturally, some Modules are a little better than others, so with that in mind, we have compiled a tier list of the best Ship Modules for Helldivers 2.

Best Ship Modules Tier List in Helldivers 2

Ship Modules improve Stratagems in different ways, like reducing cooldowns or call-in times. Of course, for the Ship Modoule to be counted among the better ones, it has to affect a wide range of Stratagems in a way that will always be useful. A Module that improves a single Stratagem may not be that great unless your gameplay revolves around it. With all that in mind, here is our tier list of the best Ship Modules in Helldivers 2.

  • BECOME A LEGEND – You will be assembled into squads of up to four Helldivers and assigned strategic missions. Watch each other’s back – friendly fire is an unfortunate certainty of war, but victory without teamwork is impossible.
  • LOADOUTS – Rain down freedom from above, sneak through enemy territory, or grit your teeth and charge head-first into the jaws of combat. How you deliver liberty is your choice; you’ll have access to a wide array of explosive firepower, life-saving armour and battle-changing stratagems… the jewel in every Helldiver’s arsenal.
  • REQUISITION – Super Earth recognises your hard work with valuable Requisition. Use it to access different rewards that benefit you, your squad, your destroyer ship and our overall war effort.
  • THREATS – Everything on every planet wants you dead. That’s what we’re dealing with. Each enemy has distinct and unpredictable characteristics, tactics, and behaviour – but they all fight ferociously and without fear or morality.

Helldivers 2: Top 5 Ship Modules

Donation Access License

Probably the first upgrade that every new Helldiver gets, but arguably the most useful one. Donation Access Licence grants you the maximum number of magazines for your Support Weapons when you call them in. As you’ll be calling Support Weapons in practically every game, this Ship Module is invaluable. Note that it does not affect the Support Weapons that come with Backpacks, as they are already full.

Zero-G Breech Loading

Orbitals can turn a defeat into a victory, and Zero-G Breech Loading reduces the cooldown of Orbital Stratagems by 10%. Powerful Orbital Strikes, like Orbital Laser, are notorious for having incredibly long cooldown times, and this upgrade will make your Helldiving easier by allowing you to call Orbitals more often.

Targeting Software Upgrade

There is nothing worse than calling in an Orbital Strike, and then having your enemies move away a second before it hits. Targeting Software Upgrade reduces the deployment time for all Orbital Stratagems by one second. Most Orbital Strikes have a call-in time of one second, and this Ship upgrade will make them hit almost instantly.

Expanded Weapons Bay

Eagle Stratagems differ from Orbitals by having a set number of uses before they enter cooldown. Expanded Weapons Bay increases the number of Eagle Stratagem uses by one before having to Rearm. This is mostly a 50% increase, but, most importantly, it allows you to call in two 500kg Bombs before having to Rearm. 

Shock Absorption Gel

Sentries can be invaluable, especially if you are defending the Extraction Point, or are chased by a horde of bugs. Sentries last, if not destroyed, until they use up all of their ammo, which can be very fast, especially with the Gatling Sentry. There is a Sentry for every situation, and you’ll want them to stay with you for as long as possible. Shock Absorption Gel increases the ammo of all Sentries by 50%, prolonging the time Sentries will remain operational.
