Despite taking out a staggering 2 billion Terminids yesterday in the previous Major Order, somehow the Terminids are now attacking Super Earth controlled planets along with the Automatons. Now, to keep us occupied this weekend, Helldivers 2 players will need to defend at least 10 planets across both sectors.

Thankfully, this could mean that the fantastic new Automaton defense missions will make a return which will make it a more enjoyable experience. The new Major Order has just gone live and will end on Wednesday, April 24th. Here is the description of the new Helldivers 2 Major Order,

“Both the Terminids and Automatons are attacking. Defend our territory on both fronts.”

To complete the Major Order, players will need to successfully defend 10 planets and have them under control by the time the event ends in five days. As players gain ground on the planet the Automaton and Terminid production will be slowed down and the goal is to ensure that the Helldivers are liberated quicker than the enemies can push back. This is easier said than done as players are often unable to work together effectively. But, if you want to figure out which planet you should be targeting, you should go to as it keeps track of the Helldivers 2 Galactic War in real-time.

This could be one of the toughest Major Orders that we’ve seen yet, especially as players seem to struggle to coordinate and work together, meaning that defenses are spread too thin. With the odds stacked against us, it is vital that you are in the best position for success. To ensure this, we highly recommend checking out our Helldivers 2 best weapons guide and best armor guide so you and your squad can defeat both the Automatons and Terminids.
