Keeping your squad full on ammunition is essential for surviving the alien onslaughts. Read on to see how to use the Supply Pack Stratagem in Helldivers 2.

Helldivers 2 is a co-op sci-fi shooter, developed by Arrowhead Game Studios and published by Sony. You can play it on PlayStation and a PC, with full crossplay enabled. Gather up to three of your friends and form a squad, ready to defend Humanity, Freedom, and Democracy. And what better way of doing just that than taking the fight to the enemy to show them the error of their ways? While being in the thick of it, the need for more ammo increases. That’s where the Supply Pack Stratagem comes into play. Let’s see how to use the Supply Pack Stratagem in Helldivers 2.

Helldivers 2: How to Use the Supply Pack

Once you input the correct combination for the Supply Pack Stratagem, a brand-new Supply Pack will grace your back. Each Supply Pack holds four extra magazines for you and your teammates and can be crucial during chaotic firefights.

To use the Supply Pack and refill your teammates’ supplies, approach them and the option Give Refill will appear. Press the prompted button (usually E on the keyboard or X on the PS controller) and this will resupply their weapons with ammo, and give them grenades and stims, in the same way as a Resupply pod. Pressing the Backpack button (usually 5 on PC and Down on D-Pad for PlayStation users) will resupply your own magazines. Careful usage of this Pack can turn a defeat into a victory.

Moreover, you can refill your Supply Pack. If you happen upon a Supply Pod or call in a Supply Drop, and your support Pack is not full, approach it and you will get the Supply option, and an associated button. Press it and a new magazine will be added to your backpack.

  • 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.

How to Get the B-1 Supply Pack Stratagem in Helldivers 2

Unlocking the Supply Pack is quite easy. Approach your Ship Management Terminal, go to the Stratagems Tab, and under Engineering Bay Stratagems you’ll see the B-1 Supply Pack. Note that you need to be at least Level 3, and have to pay 4000 Credits to unlock it. Make sure you have equipped the Supply Pack Strategem in your loadout before deploying on a mission.

This Stratagem is invaluable, especially in the early game, when people still struggle with ammo. Remember that a Supply Pack will take up your backpack slot, and thus you’ll be unable to carry other backpack items, like the Shield Generator Pack or Jump Pack, at the same time.
