How to Customize Your Character in Helldivers 2

Player customizes character in Helldivers 2

Trying to figure out how to customize your character in Helldivers 2? No problem. We’ll walk you through the steps to personalize your Helldiver and set yourself apart from other players on missions.

Helldivers 2 features a solid selection of armor sets to unlock on your playthrough and purchase through the two Warbond Battle Passes available. These cosmetics include capes, helmets, and more. The game doesn’t feature a ranking system, however, which can make it tough to stand out among teammates unless you personalize your character or switch up their look with the armor you have on hand. If you’re planning to team up with friends, you can easily customize your own character to better set yourself apart from the rest of your squad in Helldivers 2. Here’s how it’s done.

PS5 Helldivers 2
  • Enlist in the Helldivers and join the fight for freedom across a hostile galaxy in a fast, frantic, and ferocious third-person shooter.
  • 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.

Upon completing the early-game tutorials in Helldivers 2, you’ll gain free reign over your ship, which will serve as a home base of sorts on your playthrough. There, you’ll have access to your Armory within the Acquisition Center, as pictured above. Just open the Armory menu on the left-hand side of the room to begin the customization process.

From the menu, you’ll see several different tabs to navigate, including Weaponry, Armory, Character, booster, and Career. Hop over to Character to adjust your appearance and other aspects of your Helldiver, like:

  • Body Type
  • Voice Pack
  • Emote
  • Victory Pose
  • Player Card
  • Title

While each selection isn’t exactly extensive, you have several options to choose from when it comes to your character’s build, voice, and more. You can equip different armor sets from the Armory tab as well to spruce up your overall look. We might even see more customization and armor options added to Helldivers 2 down the line, though options remain pretty standard for the time being.
