Helldivers 2 Players Want Cerberus Stratagem Change



Helldivers 2 aficionados aspire to an improvement of the Cerberus stratagem, via a modification of the current backpack mechanism.

The Cerberus (or Guard Dog in original language) is already one of the favorite Stratagems of Helldivers 2 players, given that it serves as a drone resembling a flying turret. Like all Stratagems in Helldivers 2, this one has its drawbacks – the drone's small submachine gun consumes ammo quickly.

Some players have identified another issue affecting the Cerberus' effectiveness on the battlefield. He tends to fire as soon as an enemy notices the player. This plunges the soldiers into combat even if they are not ready.
