Shane Williams

If you’re enjoying Helldivers 2, you’ll want to try and raise your level as quickly as possible since it’ll allow you to access better stratagems and ship modules, both of which will make completing the harder difficulties a lot easier. On this page, we’ll provide you with some tips on how to level quickly in Helldivers 2!

Single Objective Missions are the best for leveling quickly.

Helldivers 2 Fastest Way To Level Up

How to Level Up Fast Solo in Helldivers 2

If you’re playing Helldivers 2 solo and you want to bag a few levels quickly in order to unlock a specific stratagem, you’ll want to navigate your way over to the Automaton Controlled Planets and set the difficulty to Medium (Level 3). You can then look for a mission which has only one objective, such as the Upload Escape Pod Data or Terminate Illegal Broadcasts. From here, you’ll want to land directly on the objective and use the upload time to call down your useful stratagems such as a Grenade Launcher, Stalwart and Supply Pack.

Once you’ve finished with the main objective make a beeline for the extraction point and place down a SOS Beacon, as this will allow you to bag an additional 20% XP per player, so long as they join and successfully extract from the mission at the end. If you manage to extract with 4 players, you’ll bag yourself around 300+ experience within 5 minutes. However, defeating robot enemies is slightly tougher than the bugs so you’ll want to make sure you’re using a suitable weapon for the job. We’ve noticed that the R-63 Diligence, which is obtained via the battle pass and the Stalwart, are good options for taking down the enemies quickly.

How to Level Up Fast Coop in Helldivers 2

The fastest method to level quickly in Helldivers 2 for those playing in a group at level 20+ is to play defense missions, such as the Eradicate Automaton Forces on the Helldive difficulty, and then make sure everyone carries defensive stratagems which includes Mortar Sentry, Rocket Sentry and more. Once you’ve landed, you’ll want to take the high ground and have everyone place their stratagems around the outer edge so you can cover your back from all angles. This method will bag you around 1000+ XP every 5 minutes.
