Uh oh. It looks like the Helldivers 2 Automatons are back, judging by the latest Major Order... and they're not here to make friends with us!


So, what's next in the battle for democracy?

Helldivers 2 has a dynamic virtual warfront that is regularly updated with different orders and difficulties, depending on how players are performing within the game around the world.

Matching the game’s global community every step of the way is Joel, a dungeon master-esque developer who controls the villainous Terminids and Automatons within it.

But what's our current goal in the battle for democracy? Read on to find out more about the latest objectives in Helldivers 2.

Helldivers 2 Major Order explained: What's the current prime objective?

The current Major Order in Helldivers 2 is this:

"All units to LIBCON 1. A massive Automaton Invasion Fleet, comprising tens of thousands of warships, arrived from FTL jump and began an unprovoked invasion of Cyberstan and the surrounding planets. The Reclamation has begun."

The official social media post (see below) also adds this dramatic instruction in its little video:

"The previous bot force was merely a vanguard — as suspected all along. The Helldivers are ordered to hold back this invasion."

Players certainly have plenty to keep them busy right now, thanks to the increased level cap and the new ranks that came with it.

And, of course, there's always the Personal Order to worry about each day as well.
