There is a special type of squad-wide enhancement that you should pay attention to. Read on to see how to get and use Boosters in Helldivers 2.

Helldivers 2 is, first and foremost, a team-based shooter. Playing it on your own is kinda possible but the real Helldivers 2 experience is when you play with a full squad. That way, you can all watch each others’ backs, and be more efficient in defending Freedom and Democracy. Each squad member can be equipped differently, so you guys can take on a wide variety of enemies. Moreover, there is an enhancement that you can equip that helps the whole squad. Let’s see what that is. Let’s see how to get and use boosters in Helldivers 2.

How to Get Boosters in Helldivers 2?

For now, the only way of acquiring Boosters is through Warbonds. Luckily, almost all Boosters in Helldivers 2 can be found in the free Warbond that every player gets, the ‘Helldivers Mobilise!’ Warbond. As with everything in Warbonds, you need to gather a hefty sum of Medals to unlock these Boosters. Boosters included in the Helldivers Mobilise and their costs are:

  • Hellpod Space Optimisation -15 Medals
  • Vitality Enhancement – 20 Medals
  • UAV Recon Booster – 40 Medals
  • Stamina Enhancement – 75 Medals
  • Muscle Enhancement – 70 Medals
  • Increased Reinforcement Budget – 150 Medals

There is a single Booster in the Premium Steeled Veterans Warbond – Flexible Reinforcement Budget which costs 75 Medals to unlock. We expect more Boosters will be included in future Warbonds.

  • 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.

How to Use Boosters?

After unlocking a Booster, you can equip it in the Loadout section. Each Booster has a unique effect, and the most important fact is that it affects the whole squad. Note that the effects of the same Booster do not stack. So, if you have a full squad of four people, each Helldiver should be equipped with a different Booster. As for the effects of each Booster, here is a rundown:

  • Hellpod Space Optimisation – Every Helldiver in the squad starts the match with a full stock of ammunition, grenades, and stims.
  • Vitality Enhancement – Increases the injury resistance of all players.
  • UAV Recon Booster – Enhances the effectiveness of radars.
  • Stamina Enhancement – Increases the amount of stamina and recovery time for all squad members.
  • Muscle Enhancement – Improves mobility across difficult terrain.
  • Increased Reinforcement Budget – Increases the number of reinforcements available.
  • Flexible Reinforcement Budget – Reinforcements spawn faster.
