Gameplay Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Each salvo contains 3 shells, the spread of which can vary considerably. Experienced Helldivers know to keep well away from the targeted area.
  • This Stratagem can be used to destroy mission targets (Cyborg AA Guns, Bug Nests or Illuminate Beacons) instead of the standard-issue NUX-223 Hellbomb. Like the Shredder Missile Strike and the Missile Barrage, the Thunderer can destroy the Illuminate Beacons whilst their shields are still up.
