One way to gain an advantage on the battlefield is by using Boosters, which are powerful upgrades that enhance your character’s abilities during planetary missions. However, the game provides minimal explanation about Boosters, leaving players curious about how to use them. This guide will help you acquire and use Boosters effectively, ensuring your squad’s success in the most challenging operations.

How Boosters Work in Helldivers 2

Boosters are specialized items that, when equipped, grant a variety of beneficial effects to aid you and your squad during missions. These effects range from providing additional reinforcements, enhancing radar range, to improving the overall stamina of all Helldivers. Strategically selecting and coordinating Boosters among team members is crucial for tackling higher difficulty levels and achieving mission objectives.

How to Get Boosters in Helldivers 2 and Effects

Boosters can be purchased from the Warbond Stores located in the Acquisitions menu aboard your ship. Accessing the store is straightforward; simply press the indicated key at the top of the screen within your ship (e.g., R for PC players). There are seven distinct Boosters available for purchase, each offering unique advantages:
