Helldivers 2 – What’s In The Polar Patriots Warbond?

Greetings fellow Helldivers, our battle has raged across the galaxy these many months but Super Earth’s high command is turning the tide with a brand new set of stratagems today; codenamed Polar Patriots. For our valiant warriors of justice, peace and democracy they’re sending all new gear, weapons, armour, capes and more. There’s even a brand new revive grenade?! We’ll go through everything that’s coming to the Polar Patriots Warbond here.

The Helldivers 2 Premium Polar Patriots Warbond will launch today on May 9th, 2024. It will be priced at 1,000 Supercredits ($9.99 / £7.99 on Steam and the PlayStation Store).


Primary Weapons

AR-61 Tenderizer (Assault Rifle)

This high-calibre assault rifle is a hard-hitter, perfect for taking down enemies quickly. However, its smaller magazine size means careful aim and controlled bursts are crucial. It’s a high-risk, high-reward weapon. Unpatriotic “banter” shots are not advisable.


SMG-72 Pummeler (SMG)

This submachine gun prioritizes crowd control over raw damage. Its rapid-fire rate unleashes a hail of concussive rounds, leaving enemies dazed, confused and disoriented. This can be great for flushing out entrenched foes or softening them up for teammates. The SMG-72 Pummeler has a slower rate of fire than your other SMGs but these concussive rounds will leave your enemies stunned.


PLAS-101 Purifier (Plasma Rifle)

This plasma rifle rewards sustained fire, dealing more damage the longer you hold down the trigger. The longer you stay blasting, the more damage it dishes out. This weapon excels at melting through enemy armour, making it ideal for taking down tougher targets. Pair with an EMS mortar or Stun Grenade to keep the party going.


Secondary Weapons

P-113 Verdict (Semi-Automatic Pistol)

The guys in R&D love this one. Gas-operated, semi-automatic, and chambers the largest centrefire cartridge of any lunpistol of its kind. “Rapid Deliberation”, they call it. Quick-draw to look cool in front of your squad.



G-13 Incendiary Impact

Don’t waste time reading the instructions, lob it at the enemy and run. This thing detonates on impact and ignites the area in white phosphorus, so make sure you – and your allies – are not standing around hugging. Or maybe do.


Motivational Shocks

Literally shocks Helldivers back into action after being hit and slowed by sneaky, unjust attacks like the revolting bug acid vomit. These handy grenades revive downed Helldivers, bringing them back into the fight. Imagine tossing one at a fallen comrade and bringing them roaring back into the fight. This can be a game-changer in tight situations.



CW-36 Winter Warrior (Servo-Assisted)

Blend into snowy environments with perfect camouflage. The enemy will never see you coming until it’s far too late. Ahhh the sweet smell of stealth. This suit provides exceptional camouflage in snowy environments, making you a ghost to enemy patrols. Perfect for stealthy tactics and surprise attacks.

Passive Boost: Servo-assisted


CW-22 Kodiak (Heavy Fortified Armour)

Thoroughly pressure-tested by patriotic volunteers as part of the Test Subjects for Super Earth Citizen Advancement Programme. Their sacrifice shall not be forgotten. This heavy armour set boasts a passive Fortified buff, significantly increasing your resilience. It’s ideal for frontline fighters who want to soak up enemy fire.

Passive Boost: Fortified


CW-4 Arctic Ranger (Light Scout Armour)

Features a nifty utility belt boasting handy pockets that can be filled with any number of things – pocket knives, mementoes, interesting rocks, Terminid tentacles, bits of bots, etc. This utility-focused armour comes with a built-in Scout boost, enhancing your radar range and enemy detection. Great for scouting ahead and keeping your squad informed about enemy movements.

Passive Boost: Scout



Dissident’s Nightmare
Scientifically proven to be “terrifying” to dissent-afflicted citizens during extensive testing in Patriotic Rehabilitation Centres.

Pinions of Everlasting Glory
All but ensures ascension to the immortal ranks of those enshrined in the Super Earth Digital Archive of Valorous Acts.

Order of the Venerated Ballot
Adorned with the insignia of the Order of the Venerated Ballot – a Ministry-sanctioned Patriot’s Club for citizens pledging to preserve the sanctity of voting.


And, of course, the Helldivers 2 Polar Patriots Warbons have new emotes! We know our brave, heroic soldiers like to bust out a new move right in the middle of ferocious battles – no matter the deadly risk – so rock out with Mime Instrumentation, request incoming patriotic chat with Call the Helldivers, and search for new voters with Distribute Ballots.
