    Helldivers 2 Dev Reveals New Premium Warbond Release Date, First Look at New Weapons, Armor Sets, and More

    Helldivers 2 developer Arrowhead has revealed what’s coming soon to its smash hit co-op shooter, and announced a release date for its next Warbond.

    The new Warbond, dubbed Cutting Edge, launches March 14. It includes new armor sets, new guns, new capes, and new emotes, all with high-voltage vibes.

    Here’s a list of everything coming with Helldivers 2’s new Cutting Edge Warbond, per Arrowhead:

    The EX Series Prototypes

    • EX-03 Prototype 3 – Includes a rubber underlayer for insulation. Handy, really, as this prototype’s wires operate at a shocking 400,000 volts.
    • EX-16 Prototype 16 – Warning: Electric arc generates a strong magnetic field. Avoid use while near stapled paperwork.
    • EX-00 Prototype X – The end result of several billion Super Credits and 12 years of research into creating “the Soldier of Tomorrow”. Show us it was worth it.

    Expanded arsenal

    • R&D didn’t stop at armor, though. They’re also rolling out a new series of alien-splitting weapons with electrifying perks!
    • LAS-16 Sickle – A sweet laser rifle that fires in short bursts. And it doesn’t need reloading. Just watch for overheating or shove a new heatsink in there.
    • SG-8P Punisher Plasma – Exploding plasma rounds sound deadly… because they are, to aliens and allies! This modified Punisher shotgun is as fun as it is fearsome.
    • ARC-12 Blitzer – Project an arc of close-range lightning, or charge it up to fire off powerful bolts. Good for taking out multiple targets and giving you more time to pick a celebration emote.
    • And you can unlock a new stun grenade, the G-23 Stun, and the LAS-7 Dagger pistol.

    Three new capes are included in the Warbond, with matching player cards for each cape, as well as three new emotes.

    There’s a lot happening in the world of Helldivers 2, including a recent new strategy that involves hugging. The galactic war continues, of course, as players await the arrival of mechs.

    This week, IGN reported on how Helldivers 2 has become one of the surprise hits of 2024 since launching in February, topping the charts on Steam and reportedly selling around three million copies. According to at least one analyst, it’s still growing. Check out IGN’s Helldivers 2 review to find out why it’s going down so well, as well as the best loadouts.
