Helldivers 2 Is Rolling Out Its Pilotable Mechs Soon

Get in the mech.

Arrowhead Game Studios has teased the imminent arrival of mechs in the hugely-popular Helldivers 2. By the studio’s own chatter as well as plenty of early footage of ill-gotten mechs, we knew that the day was coming, but it’s nice to hear that the time is close at hand that we’ll see a big uptick in firepower against the invading Terminids and Automatons.

The tweet simply reads, “HELLDIVERS! The EXO-45 Patriot Exosuits are in full production in the factories of Tien Kwan. Ready for deployment on the battlefield soon!”

On social media, more than a few bits of footage have popped up of these mechs EXO-45 Patriot Exosuits in use, along with other unreleased stratagems that also include tank-like vehicles. While the early use of such gear could be the work of sneaky modders and cheaters, there’s always the chance that it’s old mate Joel pulling the strings behind the scenes.

Based on the footage that’s out there, the mechs look like a ton of fun to use and can really hold their own against some of the more frighteningly-huge enemies.

Note: Salty language in the below – Helldivers only.

We gave Helldivers 2 a stellar 9/10 in our review, saying “Helldivers 2 is a masterstroke, a sensational sequel to one of my favourite games and an absolute must play for people who enjoy simple, cinematic, and irreverent fun. The shift in perspective, the upgraded graphics and sound design, and the hard lean into satirical humour have launched it easily into one of my favourite games of 2024. I highly recommend that you suit up and hit the Hellpods soldier, I’m doing my part, are you?”
