The Helldivers 2 story is constantly evolving, although largely off-screen, with most of the lore being developed as part of the Major Orders. Recently, we have seen the Terminids become “a greater threat than ever before” following them becoming resistant to the Termicide used to keep them at bay. Now, as the Automatons continue to grow in numbers and strength, Super Earth is working on a new “Super Weapon” and it should be becoming a major part of the story soon.

U/MaikySvK on Reddit noticed that new dialogue lines from Ship Master Fritzell mention a new “Super Weapon” and that is it being developed by Super Earth’s top scientists. But, no other information was given. Check out the transcript of the conversation below.

“I’ve heard, there’s some kind of secret superweapon being worked on by our top scientists. Not the ones who made the Termicide, of course. They’re all being interrogated for treason. Our other top scientists. This mobilization isn’t a moment too soon. We’ve had hand soap on half rations for weeks.”

It is unclear what this new Super Weapon could be, but some users on Reddit are theorizing it could be a new vehicle, which has been expected to come to the game for a while, with u/BearcatDG saying “We need vehicles. If we’re fighting a full blown war, we need to get mechanized. Combined arms warfare!”

But, it is also likely that it could just be part of the lore and not a Stratagem that players will use, similar to the Termicide and it will be something mentioned in the Major Order text.

It will be interesting to see how this Super Weapon story plays out, could it be the thing that brings The Illuminate to Helldivers 2? Only time will tell.

But for now, we have to continue looking at the Automatons and Terminids and making sure we don’t take our eye off the ball as we have been losing a lot of Major Orders recently. The latest Major Order calls for the defense of four planets, which comes after failing two Major Orders in a row.
