How to Eagle rearm in Helldivers 2

In each mission, you start with only a limited number of each Eagle stratagem you’ve chosen. Once you use up each stratagem, you’ll need to wait for a long cooldown period for the Eagle to rearm itself. This begins automatically when you use up the stratagems.

Alex’s Advice

The default time for your Eagle to rearm is 2:30. If you’re preparing for a big fight, make sure to manually rearm beforehand so you’re fully armed and ready to go.

However, you can also manually send the Eagle to rearm. Just as you have particular stratagem codes to use the Eagle stratagems, you also have a code called Eagle rearm. Using this code will pre-emptively send your Eagle back to rearm, removing the need to fully use up your stratagems first.

This can be very helpful if you’re preparing for a major fight. If a big threat is coming up and you don’t have all your Eagle stratagems available, you can rearm your Eagle to make sure it’s ready for the fight ahead. Mastering the timing of this can give you a huge edge in-game, making sure you always have enough firepower to take down anything in your way.
