How to upgrade efficiently in Helldivers 2

Before upgrading, players should know what is used to purchase the weapons, stratagems, and ship module upgrades. For both the support weapons and stratagems, players would use the Requisition slips. Meanwhile, ship module upgrades require Green Samples.

To unlock support weapons and stratagems, players should go to the ship management to access the menu.

Under the “Stratagems” in the ship management menu, they can see the support weapons under “Patriotic Administration Center.” Other stratagem trees are Orbital Cannons, Hangar, Bridge, Engineering Bay, and Robotics Workshop. Ship module upgrades also have the same categories as the stratagems.

To effectively and efficiently upgrade your weapons and stratagems, you should look into the corresponding ship module.

For example, you’d want to focus on upgrading your support weapons. You may choose to buy an Anti-Material Rifle or other support weapons, then head to the Ship Module menu.

You may then unlock the “Donation Access License” with 60 Science Samples, which would increase the number of magazines that are included with the support weapons. Continue to unlock another “Patriotic Administration Center” upgrade, which is the “Streamlined Request Process,” which brings support weapons a 10% decreased cooldown on your Stratagems.

If you wish to focus on other Stratagems, such as the Hangar (Eagle), then you should prioritize unlocking the “Liquid-Ventilated Cockpit” which reduces the Eagle stratagem cooldown by 50%, “Pit Crew Hazard Pay” reduces Eagle rearm time by 20%, and “Expanded Weapons Bay” which increases the number of Eagle stratagem used by 1 per rearm.

When you click on an upgrade, you may simply look at the “Affected Stratagems” section located at the lower right to see which Stratagems would benefit from it. This would prevent you from unlocking ship modules that wouldn’t give your current set-up any boosts.
