"Helldivers drop into battle using the iconic Hellpods, shock-absorbing tubes that break the atmosphere at extreme velocities only to crack the ground when they open to reveal their heroic cargo." - Encyclopedia Description
These massive near-suicidal pods were invented to counter the threat of the oppressive regime of the socialists that had dug themselves in on Northman's Creek. Super Earth was unable to gain air superiority and therefore developed these supersonic pods equipped with stabilizers and extreme shock absorbers that can hit a space-coin and allow for drops into basically any type of terrain.
As fifty Helldivers dropped into the Parliament and quickly relieved the regime from power (and life), their troops scattered and the fight was easily won. Northman's Creek was once again united with the federation of Super Earth.
In missions, Hellpods are used to deliver stratagems or an individual Helldiver to the battlefield.
