Shane Williams

There are a variety of enemies (17 to be exact) in Helldivers 2 and they are separated into two categories: the Terminids and the Automatons. Warriors fall into the Terminid type and they can be found on Terminid Planets at any difficulty. On this page, we’ll guide you through the necessary steps to finding Warriors and defeating them!

Warriors are a heavily armored foe in Helldivers 2.

Helldivers 2 Warrior Locations

You can easily come across Warriors on any difficulty on Terminid Controlled Planets which is highlighted as yellow on the galactic war map. If you are having trouble taking them down quickly, then consider checking out our Solo & Co-op Fast Leveling Tips page. The best method to level in Helldivers 2 is to make sure that you complete the major and personal orders which update regularly and sometimes defeating warriors will be one of the objectives.

How to defeat Warriors in Helldivers 2

You may find yourself struggling to defeat Warriors quickly due to their heavily armored shell, but if you come equipped with the correct weapons and focus on their weak spots then they shouldn’t cause you a problem anymore. The first thing you’ll want to do before diving into a mission is to equip a weapon with armor-piercing capabilities such as the AR-23P Liberator Penetrator (Assault Rifle) or the SG-225 Breaker (Shotgun) which can be obtained from the free ‘Helldivers Mobilise’ Battle Pass.

We also recommend that you bring along the Supply Pack Stratagem as this will allow you to quickly replenish your ammo while you’re going head-to-head with a Warrior. Upon encountering a Warrior you’ll want to focus on their heads or underneath the shell. Whatever you do, you’ll want to make sure you avoid shooting the shell, as you’ll deal little to no damage which will waste your ammo as a result. Additionally, you’ll want to fight warriors from a distance otherwise they can charge you if you’re up close.

As mentioned above there are 17 enemies to take on in Helldivers 2, so be sure to check out the links below for tips on how to defeat some of the deadlier threats!
