Choosing the right loadout can be the difference between life and death in Helldivers 2, after all, you’re going to be screwed if you encounter a Tank with no heavy artillery to take it out. But, it is not just about the weapons you carry but also the support items you have. These come in the form of Stratagems and Boosters. Stratagems are used to call in bombings, sentries, resupplies, and more, while Boosters are perks that your character has throughout the mission.

Boosters can range from increased radar radius, improved stamina, or the ability to spawn with a full loadout of ammo, grenades, and stims. But with so many to choose from, it can be confusing trying to figure out which is the best Booster to use.

U/Sauron69sMe has taken to Reddit to share some tips and advice for lower-level players, specifically those between levels 15-30. The level 84 Helldivers recommends the Hellpod Space Optimization Booster saying,

“Hellpod Space Optimization is one of the best boosters in the game. Spawning with full ammo, grenades, and stims is a fair bit more useful than Vitality Enhancement, way more useful than UAV Recon Booster, and infinitely more useful than every other booster that isn’t named Muscle Enhancement, Stamina Enhancement, and Vitality Enhancement.”

This is something that I agree with and have found that it is the best Booster option at that point in the game, and almost always when playing solo. The good thing is, the Hellpod Space Optimization Booster is the first one you unlock in the game so you can take advantage of it almost immediately.

Another great thing to note about Boosters is that when playing in a team, the effects of the Boosters affect all players, so only one needs to carry the Hellpod Space Optimization Booster, which then allows the team to benefit from other Boosters such as the Muscle Enhancement, Stamina Enhancement, and Vitality Enhancement. But, I would always recommend solo players carry this Booster, and all teams have one player utilizing it. Being able to spawn with a full loadout is invaluable, especially solo and in the middle of a gunfight.

It isn’t just the Booster you need to think about when it comes to what you’re carrying into the mission as you go and eradicate the Automatons and Terminids. So, we highly recommend checking out our Helldivers 2 best weapons guide and best armor guide to ensure you’re armed to take out any enemy that stands in your way.
