Gameplay Tips[edit | edit source]
- The Angel can help up its owner and other nearby Helldivers and NPC Survivors from a short distance. Its healing beam is similar to that projected by the REP-80, but much weaker. While the AD-289 can also repair the turrets and vehicles utilized by Helldivers, this takes so much time it is rarely practical in battlefield conditions.
- The drone cannot leave the backpack if its owner is inside a vehicle, only deploying when the Helldiver has disembarked.
- The AD-289 Angel can neutralize effects such as a poison and prevent a player's otherwise inevitable death.
