Helldivers 2 players are calling for raid bosses and larger squads

Published

on

The Helldivers 2 community wants developers to integrate raid mechanics into the game, allowing them to form larger groups, face big bosses and encourage teamwork more than ever.

Raids have always been a popular mechanic in multiplayer games, especially in PvE titles where players come together to achieve a common goal. Helldivers 2 already has a strong emphasis on teamwork, with players around the world desperately trying to free planets from the clutches of Terminids and Automata.

Although Malevelon Creek has fallen into enemy hands, the game's community is still ready to do whatever it takes to liberate the galaxy. In fact, many players want to take their teamwork to the next level and form squads with even more soldiers in their quest for freedom.

Helldivers 2 players want raid bosses and new mechanics

This is one of my biggest dreams for this game. I don't know how they could make it happen, but damn, an 8 player raid taking on gigantic bosses together is too amazing not to be on my wish list.

As for how it would work, one player proposed a method that would allow two different squads to work together for the good of Super Earth. “It would be great to work as two independent 4-player combat teams that take care of different sub-objectives for certain missions, then focus on a single major objective at the end.”

While the developers have emphasized that PvP will never come to Helldivers 2, the game's community has outlined a way that would allow soldiers to compete against each other.

I would also appreciate a competitive scoring mode where two teams of 4 cooperate on the same type of mission, but kills, side objectives, time taken and lives remaining are scored and the most efficient team receives some sort of modest reward“, imagines a fan.

Maybe a little XP bonus or just some sort of visual distinction, like a medal, that one could display on their in-game profile card. That would be nice and add a bit of variety.

It remains to be seen whether the developers will integrate raid mechanics into Helldivers 2 in the future or not.
