When they last use bring it for free last weekend I felt really really overpowered. It's better than an Orbital Railgun if you are good at throwing. It can one-shot an entire smaller bug hole. I was getting 600+ kills easily on the harder difficulties.

Eagle airstrike will do the same with a wider radius and 3 uses vs 2 on the 500lg. The 500kg makes up for the smaller radius with height which is good for the Bile Titans.

Needs a bigger AOE. It really feels like it does not have an AOE that is anywhere near how it looks.

repsahj31d ago

I agree. Same AOE as hellbomb and it will be great.

Grilla31d ago

That would be way overpowered but I agree the aoe is pretty small.

Precision Strike is better. Much faster cooldown, and hit quite hard if you use it right.


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.

Crows9015h 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
