3 steps to claim Helldivers 2 Twitch drops and rewards

Watch an hour of a participating stream to get the TR-117 Alpha Commander in Helldivers 2. This has to be done between 9 AM on Feb 8 to 10 PM on Feb 23, 2024 (GMT +4). The name quickly reminded me of Halo’s Master Chief, as the number 117 was designated to him in the games. Anyway, you can check your progress on Twitch in the Drops section. There is only one reward to earn at launch.

Here’s how to get the Twitch drops:

  • Connect your Twitch account to the Helldivers 2 page.
  • Watch an hour of a supported stream. Here are some good options –  LIRIK, shroud, summit1g, ShivFPS, and Sacriel. Another option is to filter by drops.
  • Note that rewards can only be earned and claimed on a single stream. You can’t keep getting the same reward over and over again.

Remember to spend the one hour on the same stream

Splitting your time between streams is not guaranteed to work when it comes to getting Twitch drops.

Helldivers 2 Twitch drop armor details explained

The TR-117 Alpha Commander armor is a medium-class armor set, slotting in between the nimble light and durable heavy armor sets. In addition to its balanced approach to stamina and armor, it’s got some neat perks. You can carry more healing stims and stim duration is increased as well. Since you regenerate health rapidly during this time and have infinite stamina, you can use this to get to a defensive position. Or you can choose to keep fighting the Terminids and Automatons until help arrives.

Helldivers 2 Twitch drops not working? Here’s what you can do

Some players have reported that they are unable to receive the bonus armor from watching a stream for an hour. First, confirm that you have been watching a supported stream as some streamers don’t offer these drops. Another error that has been reported is getting a ‘Unexpected token’ message. Others also report getting a ‘No codes remaining for this region/platform combination’ error. This can only be remedied by Arrowhead Game Studios and Twitch so hold on for a fix. You can contact Twitch support for more information regarding a solution.
