There is an option of limited flight in Helldivers 2, and that is by using a Jump Pack. This article explains how to use it and where to get it.

Stratagems in Helldivers 2 give you lots of options, but they are mostly Support Weapons, Sentries, and airstrikes. But, there are a couple of odd ones that do not fall under any broad category, and serve a unique purpose. One just like that is the Jump Pack, which gives you limited flight. So, read on to see how to use Jump Pack in Helldivers 2.

Helldivers 2: How to Use the LIFT-850 Jump Pack

First, you have to call down the Jump Pack. Like with any other Stratagem, you have to type in the unique Stratagem Code. The code for the Jump Pack is Down, Up, Up, Down, Up. Throw the stratagem-ball where you want it to appear and wait for it to drop. When it does so, approach the Hellpod and press the prompted button to equip the Jump Pack.

Jump Pack is a Backpack item, ie, you cannot carry it at the same time as an ammo backpack, Shield Generator Backpack, or other similar items.

To use the Jump Pack, simply press and hold the “climb” button  (X on PS, Space on PC). That will propel you into the air. Bear in mind that the Jump Pack has to be recharged after each use. When it is ready to use, its icon will be white. When it recharging, the icon will turn red.

Unfortunately, you cannot use your weapons while airborne. What the Jump Pack is excellent for is to let you get to high vantage points, from which you can shoot and use Stratagems, while being safe from melee opponents. Another great use of the Jump Pack is to jump over rampant Chargers and approaching bug swarms. Its use against Automatons is a little limited since most of their units use ranged weapons.

How to Get the Jump Pack

Jump Pack is a Stratagem that you have to unlock before using. To do so, head on to your Ship Management terminal and switch to the Stratagems tab. Scroll down to the Hangar subsection and Jump Pack is the fifth Stratagem there. You need to be at least Level 8 to unlock it, and it will cost you 6000 Requisition. Remember to select the Jump Pack as one of your Stratagems before a mission.
