Stratagems can be used from inside the Exosuit. Since they are launched from a tube there is no throw charge up, and the beacon always goes about half of the on-foot maximum thrown distance. A yellow warning light on the Exosuit's shoulder-mounted Stratagem launcher indicates that a beacon has been readied.
The EXO-44 is armed with the same MG-11 Minigun used by the A/MG-11 Minigun Turret. Ammo capacity is 1000 rounds, 2000 when upgraded. It also carries 4 anti-personnel missiles, 8 when upgraded.
While the upgraded EXO-44 'Stomper' has anti-tank capable missiles, it is still not useful for destroying mission objectives such as Cyborg AA, Bug Nests and Illuminate Beacons. Because the missiles home in on enemies, rather than mission objectives, and because it is very hard to set up the shot required, other dedicated anti-tank solutions are preferred.
Vehicles are larger than Hellpods, requiring more space to deploy. They can land anywhere within a fairly wide radius of the beacon that called it in. In rough terrain, this can lead to the vehicle being deployed on top of unsuspecting Helldivers.
When calling in multiple stratagems, it is advisable to deploy any vehicles only after all equipment-bearing Hellpods have arrived. This is because Hellpods will instantly destroy any vehicle they land on.
