Will Helldivers 2 get mod support

No, Helldivers 2 does not currently have mods. There is no indication that it will arrive later as well. While PC games are often linked to gameplay enhancing mods, being an always online title makes this game harder to mod. And considering its anti-cheat implementation, expect the devs to crack down on mods that tinker with core gameplay aspects.

While similar games like Warhammer 40,000: Darktide have enjoyed mods, don’t expect the same degree of customization from the new Helldivers. Mods that provide new gear, enemies, and environments can boost the longevity of a game. A co-op title would especially benefit from this. But considering that each battle affects the larger-scale Galactic War aspect of Helldivers 2, mods are going to be a tough sell. And that will make them harder to make and distribute.

The original Helldivers didn’t feature many mods either, with only one on Nexusmods. All that did was add hotkeys to activate stratagems in the game. We’ll update this page if we do find some new Helldivers 2 mods for you to try out.

That covers mods in the game. For more on Helldivers 2, check our best armor guide and consider trying some cheats.
