If you are looking for the explanation of Warbonds and Microtransactions in Helldivers 2 you are in the right place. Developers Arrowhead Game Studios have recently discussed Warbonds and how will this feature be implemented in the game. Unlike other contemporary live-service games, Helldivers 2 have some interesting mechanics that we will explain in this article.

Warbonds and Microtransactions in Helldivers 2

Firstly, Warbonds are unlocked with Super Credits, which is an in-game currency that can be purchased for real-life money. Additionally, Super Credits can be earned in-game by exploring points of interest during a mission. Once you have acquired a Warbond you can spend Medals to unlock the items in it. Medals can be earned from missions and operations, or by completing objectives. The accumulation of medals is not connected to Warbonds themselves, so you can earn medals even without them.

  • 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.

Warbonds are designed to provide additional content and gear for your Helldivers, and they do not offer an unfair advantage. Moreover, Warbonds are not going to be removed from the game at any time. This means that they will be available to players forever, and there is no time limit on them. Additionally, you can have more than one Warbond active at any time, and you can progress them as you see fit.

For now, we have Helldivers Mobilize! and Steeled Veterans Warbonds available.

In addition to all of this, Helldivers 2 has a Superstore feature, in which you can buy individual items for Super Credits. At any point in time, the store will have four items available for purchase and they will be rotated every 48 hours. This will allow for the items to be returned sporadically to the store.  

That was everything that you need to know about Warbonds and Microtransactions in Helldivers 2. If you want to know more about this game check out our other articles on Is there Early Access for Helldivers 2, Can You Play Helldivers 2 Solo, and Does Helldivers 2 Have Crossplay.
