Helldivers 2, Sony’s latest venture into the games-as-a-service model, introduces an integrated season pass feature known as the Premium Warbond, offering players an expanded array of weapons, cosmetics, and the coveted premium currency, Super Credits. While the game’s standard progression system already provides a generous assortment of rewards, the Premium Warbond opens the door to even more exclusive content. However, acquiring it isn’t as straightforward as one might expect.

Premium Warbonds Explained

Unlike typical in-game purchases, the Premium Warbond in Helldivers 2 cannot be bought directly. The acquisition of this enhanced battle pass hinges on accumulating enough Super Credits—1,000 to be exact, equating to roughly $10 or the regional equivalent. The good news is that Super Credits can be earned through gameplay, allowing dedicated players to access the Premium Warbond without spending real money.

Once you’ve amassed 1,000 Super Credits, the process to unlock the Premium Warbond is relatively simple:

  1. Access the Requisition Menu: Navigate to this menu within the game.
  2. Locate the Steeled Veterans Banner: Scroll to the ‘Steeled Veterans’ Premium Warbond section. It should be prominently displayed in the initial Requisition interface.
  3. Purchase Option: Look to the lower right corner of your screen. Here, the option to purchase the Premium Warbond will become available, granting you access to Helldivers 2’s inaugural battle pass.

A noteworthy aspect of Helldivers 2’s Warbonds system is its permanence. Unlike many games-as-a-service that pressure players with time-limited content, Helldivers 2 allows access to previous Warbonds even as new ones are introduced. This approach effectively removes the fear of missing out (FOMO) on content, offering a more relaxed and player-friendly experience.

Steeled Veterans Premium Warbond Explained

The current Steeled Veterans Premium Warbond primarily features upgraded versions of basic weaponry, with enhancements that allow for stunning smaller enemies and inflicting explosive damage. While these additions might seem appealing, the community consensus suggests that the basic Warbond’s practical tools and weapons offerings may provide more immediate value to players’ arsenals. As such, newcomers might want to prioritize unlocking the standard Warbond rewards before diving into the Premium content, which, at this stage, serves more as a source of cosmetics.

The Premium Warbond is an interesting addition to Helldivers 2’s reward system, providing players with new ways to upgrade their equipment and appearance on the battlefield. Players can unlock these special rewards and reap their benefits by learning how to earn Super Credits and navigate the Requisition menu. As Warbonds are permanent and there is potential for future Steeled Veterans gear enhancements, Helldivers 2 continues to evolve as an engaging third-person shooter that rewards both strategic gameplay and time investment.
