Helldivers Reinforcement DLC Packs Available from Today

By   /   Mar 17, 2015

Arrowhead Game Studios has announced DLC packs for Helldivers, following the game’s success since its release. These DLCs will go live for download from today, as announced on the PlayStation Blog, where co-founder of Arrowhead Malin Hedström posted about the game’s live statistics, along with the information on the DLC.

There are three DLC packs available for Helldivers, which will have unique outfits and gear. Each pack will cost $2.99 individually, or you could buy all three of them for $5.99. The packs come in the form of equipment for Commandos, Defenders, and Supports.

Commando Pack

The Commando Pack will contain:

  • The Commando Uniform (Helmet, Armor, and Cape).

  • SMG-34 ‘Ninja’: A silenced, compact, submachine gun with short reach and good accuracy. The silenced aspect has been debated much and there is no proof that it actually reduces the risk of detection.

  • MLS-4X ‘Commando’: A multiple missile launcher system similar to the one used on the EXO-44. From its four barrels it fires seeking missiles at a high rate of fire; primarily an anti-personnel weapon, it can be upgraded to have limited anti-tank capabilities.

Defender Pack

The second DLC pack contains:

  • The Defender Uniform (Helmet, Armor, and Cape).

  • CR-9 ‘Suppressor’: A semi-automatic rifle firing small fragmentation grenades. It is a volatile weapon but capable of devastating large masses of enemies, hence the nickname ‘Suppressor’.

  • AD-334 ‘Guard Dog’: A backpack drone system, featuring an automated defensive combat drone armed with a small submachine gun. The drone circles ahead, firing at targets of opportunity and will land in the backpack to reload.

Support Pack

The support pack will have the following gear:

  • The Support Uniform, a helmet, armor, and cape.

  • LAS-16 ‘Sickle’: A carbine based on laser technology, modified to behave more as a regular assault rifle. It overheats quickly but well placed shots do excellent damage and the virtually unlimited ammunition is invaluable in tight situations.

  • AD-289 ‘Angel’: A backpack drone system, with an automated healing and repair drone that will try to help all friendly targets in its vicinity. It will land in the backpack to refill the restorative substance.

In addition to these packs, there is also the Ranger Limited Edition Bundle still available for grabs. This bundle is available till April 28, and will contain a special Ranger training at no additional cost for all those who register prior to April 28.

The bundle contains:

  • The Ranger Uniform, a cosmetic helmet, armor, and cape.

  • LHO-63 ‘Camper’: A designated marksman rifle with high power and accuracy traded for fire rate, few enemies take more than a few shots to kill.

  • ‘Humblebee’ UAV: An Unmanned Aerial Vehicle, capable of revealing enemies and hidden objectives at greater distances.
