Players have defeated entire hordes of enemies in Helldivers 2.


    Update, 4/9/24:

    Yesterday, players celebrated what they believed to be the complete demise of the Automaton Legion in Helldivers 2. The official Helldivers 2 X (formerly Twitter) account even tweeted about the players’ success in the galaxy. Now, almost a day later, the automatons are back.

    “Somehow, the automatons are back. As suspected all along, the previous bot force was just a vanguard. How a large fleet has now launched an attack on Cyberistan and the surrounding planets. Infernals, stop this unprovoked attack. The fight is on!”

    If you’ve played Helldivers 2, you know it’s probably going to be really, really bad. Enjoy yourself! Save democracy!

    Original story, 4/8/24:

    Players defeat an entire enemy automaton bot faction in Helldivers 2, making Operation Swift Disassembly a success. Now, with one of the game’s two enemy factions wiped from the galactic map, players are wondering what developer Arrowhead Game Studios has in store for them.

    Last week, a new major order called Operation Swift Disassembly was given to the Helldivers, tasking Super-Earth’s best soldiers with destroying the Automaton Legion. A few days later, the automatons are no more and Operation Swift Disassembly is complete. The studio congratulated players with the following message on X (formerly Twitter), and while it sounds great on the surface, many are wary of what Arrowhead might have planned next.

    “You did it, Helldivers. Operation Swift Disassembly was a success! With the bots eliminated and the bugs contained, the galaxy is free once again.”

    Sure, the galaxy is free for now… If you’ve been playing Helldivers 2 since launch, you’ll know that players are likely to encounter a new galactic horror, the resurgence of the automatons, or even Something more terrifying is just days away. Of course, there’s an interesting timeline where this just means Helldivers 2 and Arrowhead shut down the servers, as many have joked online, but with this momentum for the game, no shot. Not that this is the end.
