The latest Helldivers 2 order finally gives us a break from squashing bugs and turns us west to stop the Automatons enacting ‘the reclamation’ and… oh, oh no

The latest Helldivers 2 major order has just gone up—and it’s a simple, in-and-out mission to liberate Troost, a planet that’s currently under Automaton control. This should be a nice vacation, seeing as the last handful of major orders have all been bug-related—even if bots are a lot less popular than bugs.

As someone who joined during the order to defend Automaton planets, I have ‘fond’ memories of brawling with these things. They were the enemy type I fought when I was still breaking in my Super Earth-issued cape—and I generally prefer how threatening they are with their relentless dropships, sniping missile launchers, and terminator war chants. Even if they’re, well, harder.

So let’s take a look at that Major Order: “We have discovered Automaton plans for something called ‘The Reclamation’. Capturing their deep-space comms array on Troost may reveal critical intel about their plans.” Oh. Oh no.
