3 days after Helldivers 2 dev’s CEO denied the existence of heavy machine guns, they now exist: Introducing the LAS-99 Quasar Cannon and the MG-101 Heavy Machine Gun


Earlier this week, the CEO of Helldivers 2 studio Arrowhead Games flatly denied the existence of heavy machine guns—Johan Pilestedt has track record of being tongue-in-cheek, though it’s not clear whether he accidentally blurted out some Super Earth secrets or fired a knowing wink our direction, here.

Turns out, we are getting not one, but two heavy weapons to help us in our march against the bots: the LAS-99 Quasar Cannon and the MG-101 Heavy Machine Gun (HMG), which are both available in-game right now.

Both of these heavy-duty weapons should help thin the herd of Super Earth’s foes by offering even more anti-armour options—though the LAS-99 Quasar Cannon appears to be geared most towards taking out tanky enemies, as it’s shown obliterating Automaton hulks in its preview footage. That should be a very welcome addition, considering the bot’s relative lack of popularity among the playerbase.
