Purchase Boosters in Warbonds Helldivers 2

Boosters can be bought using medals from “Helldivers Mobilise” and
Steeled Veterans” Warbonds in the Acquisition Centre Menu of Helldivers 2.
The game currently only has seven boosters readily available. Despite the price difference, each of them is strategically equal; the choice is ultimately down to the divers, the mission’s environment, and the varying difficulty levels.

How to Use Boosters in Helldivers 2

Equip Boosters in Loadout Helldivers 2

Helldivers can pre-select Boosters in the Loadout Menu before deploying on a mission. Get into the Hellpod, choose your drop zone, and then select a booster from the hexagon slot beside your Stratagems loadout.

Each Booster is unique, and effects from the same Booster do not stack if selected by multiple squad divers. Contrary to some players’ assumptions that Boosters might be consumable or temporary, they are, in fact, infinitely reusable once purchased. If you have boosters that can benefit the entire squad, consider using them in coordinated efforts to overcome difficult objectives.
