‘Farewell, battle brother’: Helldivers 2 players honour a late soldier with thousands of salutes, Arrowhead Games’ CEO says he’ll work with the dev team on a fitting tribute

A Helldivers 2 player by the name of OkamiCheems has died—and in a touching tribute, a thread posted by his former friend to the game’s subreddit has received an outpouring of support tens of thousands strong. 

At the time of writing, the post has 43,800 upvotes, and the thread itself is flooded with both heartfelt sentiment and an entire battalion of salutes—enough that my browser started to have trouble scrolling through them all.

“Today I woke up to the news that my best friend passed away yesterday on his birthday,” writes user Fine-Clothes-1209. “He loved this game and he grinded it out daily.” Fine-Clothes-1209 then recalls being taught how to kneecap chargers and headshot bile titans by their comrade-in-arms. They then ask: “I was wondering, would it be possible to export his game data? Me and my other friends wanna make a memorial with his game stats.”
