The next Warbond is on its way. Read on to see all new features and content coming in the new Democratic Detonation Warbond for Helldivers 2.

New Warbonds are always welcome in Helldivers 2. You play missions and complete Major Orders to earn Medals, and Medals are used to unlock new equipment in any Warbond that you have unlocked so far. We have three Warbonds available in Helldivers 2 so far and a new month means we get another one. Let’s see all the features and content in Democratic Detonation Warbond for Helldivers 2.

Helldivers 2: Democratic Detonation Warbond Content

The next Warbond will be themed around explosions and explosive weapons. These are great for bypassing a lot of damage resistances that enemies might have, so we presume that the items in Democratic Detonation will be highly sought-after.

As with all other Premium Warbonds, we’ll get three new Armor sets, Primary and Secondary Weapons, a new Grenade, cosmetics, Victory Poses, and a Booster.

New Armor

We are getting three new Armor sets. In the Cutting Edge Warbond, the new Armor came with a new Armor Perk. Since Democratic Detonation is themed around explosions, we can safely assume that the Armor Perks will be of a similar nature. But, we already have explosion resistance as one of the Perks, so whether these new sets will have the same Perk, or a new one is on its way, we’ll have to wait and see.

  • CE-07 Demolition Specialist – Light Armor. “Originally worn by Lunar terraformers, this suit can withstand rapid changes in pressure, heat, and personal velocity.”
  • CE-27 Ground Breaker – Medium Armor. ”The ground is just another obstacle that hasn’t yet been cleared.” – SGM Janet Jones, Excavation Corps Founder.
  • FS-55 Devastator – Heavy Armor. “Domestic versions of this armour allow colonial farmers to safely plant crops and mines side-by-side while staying in one piece.”

New Primary Weapons, Secondary and Grenades

A Warbond is nothing without some cool new weapons, and Democratic Detonation is not lacking in that department. Some of these we had the chance to see in earlier leaks, and some are quite new. It is safe to assume that most, if not all, of them will be having the Explosive Weapon Trait.

  • BR-14 Adjudicator Rifle – A rapid-firing Marksman Rifle. “Deliver righteous judgment to your enemies with accuracy. This armour-penetrating assault rifle is best used against smaller groups.”
  • CB-9 Exploding Crossbow – “Kaboom! Enjoy powerful exploding bolts that dish out max damage upon direct impact. Gravity must be accounted for when aiming.” As you might expect, this is a crossbow that shoots explosive ammunition. It looks like it is quite accurate, and the bolts explode only after hitting the target, making it great for sniping those weak points.
  • R-36 Eruptor Rifle – An Explosive weapon that seems to shoot powerful, explosive rounds, one by one. “Keep your distance… this bolt-action rifle fires jet-assisted shells that explode shrapnel in all directions upon impact. All directions. Even your face.”
  • GP-31 Grenade Pistol – “Does what it says on the label – a pistol that fires grenades. Don’t forget to reload between shots though.” A Secondary Weapon that shoots grenades. More than useful if you lack weapons capable of closing Bug Holes or Bot Fabricators (or are out of grenades). We expect this one will be extremely popular.
  • G-123 Thermite – “This little beauty can stick to surfaces before burning up to a toasty 2000°C.” A grenade that sticks to its target, bores deep inside it, and then explodes. That way it will bypass armor plates and similar protection, so another contender for the best item in the set.

Cosmetics and Victory Poses

As with other Premium Warbonds, we’ll get a new selection of Capes, Helmets, Player Cards, and ever-popular Victory Poses.

  • Capes – Harbinger of True Equality, Eagle’s Fury, and Freedom’s Tapestry
  • Helmets – CE-07 Demolition Specialist, CE-27 Ground Breaker, and FS-55 Devastator
  • Player Cards – Harbinger of True Equality, Eagle’s Fury, and Freedom’s Tapestry
  • Victory Poses – Courty Bow, Boxer, Squat

New Booster and Super Credits

And lastly, another Booster is on its way, with a couple of Super Credit bundles probably in tow.

  • Booster – Expert Extraction Pilot (“This booster lowers the time it takes for the extraction shuttle to reach the extraction beacon”)
  • Super Credits – we will confirm when the Warbond is released, but we can assure that three instances of 100 SC will be available.

How to Get Democratic Detonation Warbond in Helldivers 2

The Democratic Detonation Warbond is yet to be released. Scheduled for April 11, we can safely assume that it will cost 1000 Super Credits to unlock, just like all other Premium Warbonds before it. 

We will update this article as soon as any new info is released. For more on HD2, check out Helldivers 2: Malevelon Creek, How to Find and Kill Hulks, and What Is the Helldivers 2 Medal Cap.
