It has been a tough time for the Helldivers recently after failing two Major Orders in a row. Thankfully, the community managed to claw things back by completing the latest Major Order that saw players successfully defend four planets. But, there is no time to rest on their laurels as a new Major Order has gone live, and this one should be incredibly fun and a sure victory for Helldivers 2 players.

The new Major Order calls for players to kill 3,141,592,653 enemies, yes that is over 3.1 billion. But, the good news is that both Automaton and Terminid kills count toward the total. Players recently failed a Major Order that called for the eradication of 2 billion Automatons, but with over 50% of the players fighting Terminids, the community was only able to reach 78% completion before the timer ran out.

A Helldivers 2 game screen shows a Major Order with a countdown of 4D 20H. The task is to kill or dismantle enemies, progress at 15,097,873/41,592,653 (3.7%). Reward: 50. A Personal Order also counts down.

In a post on the official Discord server, the new Major Order was announced with Arrowhead Game Studios saying,

“After having failed two Major Orders in a row, our Helldivers are back to their usual winning ways. The training facilities upon Heeth, Angel’s Venture, Aesir Pass, and Vernen Wells are up and running, efficiently producing SEAF reinforcements to bolster offensive operations across the galaxy. During the last few days, we saw unusually large assaults by both fascist bugs and socialist automatons hitting Heeth and Aesir Pass. But our heroic Helldivers stood tall and rebuffed those attacks with determination and valor. When the moment called for them, the Helldivers answered in force, with over 81% of active Helldivers choosing to distribute Liberty and Galactic Justice to the enemies of Managed Democracy.

Now, in an effort to boost morale among fresh recruits, the Helldivers are tasked to kill or dismantle a larger number of enemies than ever before. However, any dead enemy of freedom counts, so either front is a viable alternative. To assist their efforts, the Eagle 500kg bomb has been temporarily been made available to all Helldivers.”

With both enemy types counting, the community can play Helldivers 2 how they prefer, whether that is facing the Automatons or Terminids.
