- How To Unlock Super Credits Via Warbonds
- Loot Caches and Random POIs
As you wage war in the name of managed democracy, you’ll come across three different types of currency in Helldivers 2. Super Credits are essentially the game’s version of a premium currency. They can be bought for real money and spent on new gear or snazzy cosmetics.
Helldivers 2 Trophy List Revealed
The full trophy list for cooperative shooter Helldivers 2 reveals goals for players to aspire to as they blast aliens and protect Super Earth.
However, one thing Helldivers 2 does differently from other live service games is allowing Super Credits to be earned via normal gameplay. If you would rather earn your gear through blood, sweat, and tears, here’s how you can get Super Credits without spending a cent.
How To Unlock Super Credits Via Warbonds
Warbonds are Helldivers 2‘s take on a battle pass. Instead of having an XP-based track progression, you can spend your hard-earned Medals here to purchase weapons, emotes, armor, and Super Credits — this applies to both the free and premium Warbonds. This is a major departure from the first game, which used mission-based progression to unlock new equipment.
The Helldivers Mobilize! Warbond, available at the launch of the game, includes 800 SC spread across all 10 of its pages, while the premium Steeled Veterans track contains only 300 SC. Unfortunately, the cost to unlock Super Credits increases per page, so you’ll have to consider if you’d rather unlock a new piece of gear or get the extra money. Medals can be relatively hard to come by since they require mission completion or additional exploration while playing.
Loot Caches and Random POIs
The open maps of Helldivers 2 offer plenty of goodies to find for those who love exploration. If you open up your map, you may see diamond icons scattered all over. These indicate the location of POIs that you and your friends can raid for extra ammo, weapons, Medals, and Super Credits. These POIs can range from crash sites to loot stashes and enemy-infested facilities in dire need of liberty.
It appears that Super Credits have a very low chance of appearing in these POIs. You can find them as a potential reward for opening crashed emergency pods. Depending on the map you’re on, the number of POIs may range from few to surprisingly many. It’s up to you to decide if the team can spare the time to hunt down these loot caches. As of writing, it’s hard to pin down if higher-difficulty missions contain more POIs or if they have better chances of having Super Credits lying around.
According to the developer FAQ at the Helldivers Discord server, players are expected to earn 10-40 Super Credits per hour depending on how they play, and it’s likely that some gamers will exceed that rate if they optimize their playstyle.
