Does Helldivers 2 have cheats

No, Helldivers 2 currently doesn’t have any cheats on PC and PS5 that are commonly available. Thanks to nProtect GameGuard being used as a kernel-level anti-cheat measure, the game currently doesn’t let you tinker with its code. While this has been criticized due to performance and security concerns, it ensures a fair battleground for players of all skill levels. While it only has PvE and co-operative elements, cheats would mess with the game’s balance and the larger-scale Galactic War that is powered by the operations of Helldivers.

Have Helldivers 2 players hacked the game

While there’s not much information publicly available, some players have indeed been able to hack in Helldivers 2. Players on Reddit weren’t too happy about cheaters who used the Recoilless Rifle with infinite ammo. As a weapon that is usually cumbersome and reliant on a friend to reload it, this hack trivialized the game’s difficulty levels. Cheating in a PvE game is bizarre, especially since Helldivers 2 does a solid job with its cooperative elements. It’s an exploit that may have already been patched out.

You can borrow powerful gear from friends instead

If you team up with a player who has more gear unlocked than you, they can call in support weapons for you to use.

Does Helldivers 2 have a cheat sheet

While players have come up with cheat sheets, these don’t refer to cheats. Instead, they refer to the stratagem codes in Helldivers 2 that you input to call in powerful items or attacks. Note that you need to have unlocked these beforehand before summoning them. So these aren’t exactly cheats.

Does Helldivers 2 have a trainer

Currently, a Helldivers 2 trainer is available but I’d advise against using it. Trainers can grant you perks like infinite ammo or health in addition to faster stratagem cooldowns. One Helldivers 2 trainer from Cheathappens even promises ‘Fast Attempt Server Login’ but we haven’t verified these claims. Developer Arrowhead Games is doing its best to minimize cheaters so expect these to be disabled when a new patch comes around.

Will Helldivers 2 get a save editor

This is unlikely as Helldivers 2 is an online game. It requires a constant internet connection, making save editors nearly impossible to create. This ensures that the Galactic War in the game is influenced only by the players’ actions and not by malicious means.

That covers the possibility of cheats in the game. We will update this page if the game eventually gets cheats down the line. And I hope they don’t get in the way of the game’s balance. For more on Helldivers 2, check out crossplay support and if it is on the PS4.
