How to farm Helldivers 2 Super Credits

Super Credits let you purchase some of the best armor and items in Helldivers 2. While you can pay for this premium currency, Helldivers 2 also lets you earn them for free in-game. Here are our best methods to earn Super Credits.

Get Super Credits from the Warbond battle passes

You can unlock Super Credits with Medals from the free Hellldivers Mobilize section. You can get more Super Credits from the paid Steeled Veterans and Cutting Edge Premium Warbonds but it costs 1000 Super Credits each to unlock purchasing items from here. Warbond Medals are not hard to come by, as they are granted by completing missions, Personal Orders, and Major Orders. You can then go to the Acquisition Center and unlock Super Credits from specific pages with the Medals you have.

Repeat easy missions to open bunkers and containers

Remember that Super Credits are rarer on smaller missions like Eradicate, Egg Nest, and Automation Defend missions. Play the regular 40-minute timer ones and go to all the diamond point of interest icons you see. These bunkers, caches, and crashed pod sites can be blown open for weapons, Warbond Medals, samples, and sometimes, 10 Super Credits. A golden ray of light will point you in the right direction. Try easier difficulties and Light armor (better stamina and radar perks) to explore the map quickly. The UAV Recon booster is another tool that will help you by enhancing the range of your radar.

Farm Super Credits by hunting down all the different points of interest, beating the main objective, and leaving before starting the process again. You can earn over 100-200 Super Credits per hour this way. Some players also use a method that involves restarting after earning Super Credits, dropping back into the same spot, and collecting them again before repeating the process.

Purchase Super Credits from the in-game shop

This is a quick fix from grinding in the game to get them. It isn’t pay-to-win because regular items have good perks too. It costs $2 to get 150 Super Credits. $19.99 will get you 2100 Super Credits, enough for multiple items or even premium Warbonds.

Unlike most games, you can earn Super Credits without spending a penny

Keep playing missions and finding Super Credits to get the best items in the game.

How to use Super Credits in Helldivers 2

Super Credits can be used to purchase premium Warbonds or gear in the Superstore. This shop sells exclusive armor sets that rotate on a regular schedule, sort of like the Item Shop in other video games. Once you have Super Credits, the real fun begins in one of the latest third-person shooter games out there. You can get a solid helmet, cape, and so much more with your credits. If you’re struggling to get them, you can always try an easier difficulty setting to ensure you can succeed and earn credits. Note that armor sets are cycled every 44 hours so return to check out the latest gear.

Can you get Super Credits for free in Helldivers 2

Yes, finding them in points of interest and unlocking Warbond progress lets you earn Super Credits for free. There’s no limit to how much you can earn this way. It’s a refreshing change in an industry that always makes it an uphill climb to earn premium currencies.
