Gameplay Tips[edit | edit source]

  • The column of fire always arrives perpendicular to the throw.
  • Incendiary Bombs also deal a small amount of explosive damage at the time of detonation. This can even damage or kill Cyborg Warlords.
  • Many enemies will not cross the wall of fire and will try to find a path around it, making this useful for area denial. If they can't see a path, they'll usually hang back until the fire burns itself out. However, heavier foes aren't particularly intimidated by the flames and will march or drive right through.
  • Cooldown time with Stratagem Priority is 36 seconds (27 when upgraded), allowing Helldivers to put up another Hellfire wall immediatelly after the original burns out.
