An armor-penetrating rapid-fire Marksman Rifle sounds amazing. Read on to see how to get and use the B-14 Adjudicator in Helldivers 2.

A new Warbond means new Primary Weapons. Having options to choose from is always better than sticking to a single weapon. Usually, each new Premium Warbond has three Primary Weapons for you to unlock, along with other items. One such weapon is the B-14 Adjudicator, so let’s see how to get and use it in Helldivers 2.

Helldivers 2: How to Get the B-14 Adjudicator 

The Adjudicator is a weapon found in the Democratic Detonation Warbond. Specifically, it is located on the first page of said Warbond, and it costs 20 Medals to unlock. Remember that you first have to unlock the Democratic Detonation Warbond, if you haven’t done so already, by paying 1000 Super Credits.

The B-14 Adjudicator has the following stats:

  • Damage: 80
  • Capacity: 25
  • Recoil: 50
  • Fire Rate: 550
  • Weapon Traits: Medium Armor Penetrating

How to Use B-14 Adjudicator in Helldivers 2

The B-14 Adjudicator is a Marksman Rifle, which means it has a powerful scope and is able to zoom in and make long-distance shots. When you access the weapon options (usually by holding the Reload button), you can adjust the scope distance, and choose between semi-automatic and automatic firing modes.

The best part of B-14 Adjudicator is the Medium Armor Penetrating trait, which allows you to deal with anything other than the most heavily armored enemies (like Hulks or Chargers). Additionally, you can use the weapon’s scope to target enemies that are further away. Finally, the Adjudicator has above-average damage, making each shot a powerful one.

Now for the cons. Well, we found the B-14 Adjudicator to be quite underwhelming. For a Marksman Rifle, it is very inaccurate and the recoil is all over the place. Next, the clip size is too small to properly utilize the fully automatic mode, and you will find your Helldiver yelling “Mag’s empty!” all the time. 

Maybe having the Armor Perk that grants you additional recoil reduction will fix the inaccuracy issue. We hope that the devs will look into this weapon a little more because it’s a very interesting concept. For now, however, the trade-offs leave much to be desired in its current state.
