When is the next Helldivers 2 update? FAQs

What is a Warbond in Helldivers 2?

A Warbond is essentially a Battle Pass. There's one in the base game, as well as a premium one called Steeled Veterans. Cutting Edge will add another Premium Battle Pass, allowing players to use Medals to unlock new rewards.

Is the Helldivers 2 Cutting Edge Warbond free?

No, the upcoming Cutting Edge Warbond will require Super Credits to purchase. While these can be found in-game, and unlocked via the base Battle Pass, you may need to spend real money to get enough to unlock the next Warbond. A price has yet to be given, but if it's the same as the other Premium Warbond, it'll be 1000 Super Credits.

How do you unlock the new weapons and armor from the Cutting Edge Warbond?

The new Cutting Edge Warbond will function the same as the other two currently in the game. You'll earn Medals in missions, and then use them to slowly work your way through the Battle Pass rewards. You will not have access to everything after buying the Warbond.

What about the mech suits?

Arrowhead Game Studios updated Helldivers 2 on March 7, 2024, adding a new Order for players to take on. This teases the arrival of mech suits, which have also been teased over on the game's Twitter account. It's unclear whether these will arrive before the Cutting Edge Warbond, or alongside it. We'll update this page when we hear more.
