The latest Major Orders in Helldivers 2 have been given for the next community event which sees players eradicate the Terminid from various planets. This new event comes shortly after the release of update 1.000.102 which focused on balancing changes. These community events are a great way to earn medals to go toward the Warbond Battle Pass, which grants players 10 pages of rewards including armor and weapon skins, emotes, and many more items. The Warbond Battle Pass costs approximately $10 and is a great way to customize your experience in the game.

How to activate the Terminid Control

In a video posted on X, the latest mission briefing was given with orders to activate the Terminid Control System. The video outlined the task at hand, which will see the Helldivers activate towers on four planets to clear all of the Terminids from that system.

“The Terminid Control System has been constructed by SEAF Engineers on all Barrier Planets. However, the Terminids swarmed across all 4 planets, forcing evacuation. The Helldivers are called to activate the TCS. Once activated, it will inoculate each planet with Termicide, quarantining the bugs permanently.”

The Terminid Control System missions take place on the planets Erata Prime, Fenrir III, Meridia, and Turing, which can all be found in the Umlaut Sector. Players will have one week to complete these missions, with the latest Major Order ending on March 19.

When jumping into Helldivers 2 to tackle the latest Major Order, you will be greeted with the briefing which states,

“Upon each Barrier Planet now stands a network of massive, Termicide-dispensing towers: the Terminid Control System. Once activated, the TCS will exterminate every Terminid on that planet, and inoculate it against all future infestations. However, surges in Terminid activity have forced the SEAF Engineers to evacuate. Now, only the Helldivers can ensure the safety of our citizens. The Terminid Control System must be activated – at any cost.”

By finishing these Terminid Control System missions you will increase the installation progress bar for the planet. Once you and your team of Helldivers activate the Termicide Dispersion Towers in each location, the progress bar will reach 100% the planet will be liberated and you can move on to the next one.

Once the Terminid Control System on all four planets has been activated you will receive 50 Warbond Medals for your efforts to go toward the Warbond Battle Pass. Arrowhead Game Studios is set to release more community events over time, which will see permanent changes be made to the game as it continues to evolve.
