The main tip that I would tell a new player is: know how and when to pick your fights. Sometimes it's better to avoid a skirmish altogether and focus on the missions. And if you are indeed starting a fight, try to end is as soon as possible and focus on the smallers enemies first, because if you get rid of all those bastards then they won't call for backup and you'll have time to finish the bigger threats

I got 2 tips. Don't throw a 380 barrage without announcing it. I don't mind the occasional lol team kill, or accidental. Getting stuck in the middle of a 380 you had no idea was inbound is another story lol. Also, Don't sleep and the disposable Anti-Tank. It cools down every 70 seconds, and if haven't had to use one you'll have 3 high power shots you can dish out in short order. Great on defense missions when you can literally just fill the extraction zone with 6 or 7 pods of heavy busters. Can't stress that 70 second cool down enough is clutch.


Extraction killing and kicking is becoming a trend in Helldivers 2, and it needs to stop

Your goal in Helldivers 2 is to complete missions as a team. Not to kill your fellow soldiers just as you're about to finish one.

Toxic behavior... I haven't encountered it much, but I generally keep to my own lobbies.

I'm sorry but it's completely on the developers to make their own games 100% grieve-proof, or as close to it as possible. If you don't want TK-ing then why the hell put that in the game? Just plain stupidity.

Friendly fire is part of the strategy of the game. I am not sure how they could do it really.

Crows9014h ago

I'm not sure they want to. It's part of the game and for about 99% of the experience there are no issues.

In my personal experience, I had a couple of really high-level players join my medium-low-level missions just to try to kill us. Of course, they get kicked as soon as we notice, but I feel they are probably bored with the game and, instead of moving on, they pull this sort of stuff. It is more sad than annoying to be honest.

This happened to me for the first time last night. I was so caught off guard by it. I wasn't team killing, and I was taking down objectives and gathering damn near ALL the samples. Got booted for absolutely no reason. They should take away the option to boot players when the drop ship gets called in. Or you can't get kicked after a set period of time in game. 5 minutes for the short 12 minute missions, and 15 minutes for the 30 or 40 minute missions. That's apt amount of time to see if you want to keep a player on your crew.

It is alright for me to be honest, as long as the mission is complete. The minus experience is for everybody not just the player who died.

Christopher... seriously do you feel any shame having to push this garbage website?

On higher difficulties I hate them. If I am running lower difficulty solo 3/4 I don’t hate them as spawns aren’t chaotic and you can go around them easily
