Helldivers 2 is the latest craze in the video game world, with the game hitting the top 3 in concurrent players on Steam. The game has recently encountered an amusing yet disruptive glitch. Players have discovered an exploit that allows them to use Stratagems infinitely, without any cooldown. This glitch, known as the "infinite Stratagem glitch," has surfaced following a recent update aimed at increasing server capacity and implementing an anti-AFK (Away From Keyboard) function. And while the developers, Arrowhead Game Studios, are aware of it already, here’s everything you need to know about the “Infinite Stratagem glitch” in Helldivers 2.

How the Infinite Stratagems Glitch Works

The glitch, which became apparent after the Feb. 23 update, grants players the ability to spam stratagems endlessly, far exceeding the normal limits of the game. Players have reported spawning into matches with peculiar symbols over their heads, no ammunition, and the ability to use stratagems without restraint.

The glitch seems to be triggered by getting kicked multiple times by the anti-AFK function and then rejoining a game. While some players have found ways to mitigate the glitch, such as re-equipping their weapons, others have embraced it, using it to grind resources and money on the game's most challenging difficulties.

Impact on Gameplay

A clip posted on the Helldivers 2 subreddit showcases a player using numerous Mortar Sentries simultaneously, a feat that would normally be impossible due to the game's restrictions. However, this newfound power comes at a cost; players lose the ability to wield regular weapons, and a question mark appears floating above their character.

The glitch has led to some entertaining and chaotic scenarios, with players unleashing a barrage of orbital lasers and other powerful Stratagems, sometimes causing the game's performance to suffer. While Helldivers 2 is primarily a cooperative game and not competitive, exploits and cheats can disrupt the gameplay experience for others and even lead to crashes.

Developer Response and Fix 

The developers of Helldivers 2, Arrowhead Game Studios, are aware of the glitch and have released two updates for the game thus far. Given the impact on gameplay and the potential for abuse, it is likely that Arrowhead will address this exploit in a future patch. Despite these challenges, Helldivers 2 continues to thrive, with a peak player count of over 450,000 on Steam alone. The developers have been proactive in addressing various issues, including UI problems and frequent disconnects, indicating their commitment to providing a stable and enjoyable gaming experience.
