Helldivers 2, the sequel to the popular top-down shooter, has a new enemy type known as Hunters. These quick-moving orange bugs belong to the Terminid faction and can be difficult to deal with, especially when they travel in groups. If you want to finish your 'Herd Thinning' Personal Order by removing 25 Hunters, you've come to the right place. Let's look at what Hunters are, where you can locate them, and how to deal with them efficiently in Helldivers 2.

What Are Hunters in Helldivers 2?

Hunters are fast-moving, orange-colored bugs that are part of the Terminid faction. They are distinguishable by their swift movements and tendency to travel in packs. Hunters are known for triggering bug breaches and can easily overwhelm unprepared Helldivers with their sheer numbers. Despite their agility, Hunters have low hit points, making them susceptible to quick elimination with the right tactics.

Where to Find Hunters

Hunters can be found on any planet in the Terminid systems, which are marked by their orange coloring on the Galactic War table. They are commonly encountered during bug patrols, nest invasions, and bug breaches. They tend to attack alongside other types of enemies. If you're on a bug-infested planet and playing on any difficulty, you're likely to encounter Hunters.

How to Beat Hunters

To complete the "Herd Thinning" Personal Order, players must kill 25 Hunters. While this may seem daunting, Hunters are relatively easy to defeat due to their low health. Any weapon can be effective against them, but it's crucial to keep moving to avoid being overwhelmed. Hunters will jump at players from mid-range, so shooting them before they jump or while they are in mid-air is recommended.

Tips for Efficiently Killing Hunters

  • Use fast-firing weapons or shotguns with armor penetration for maximum efficiency.

  • Deploy Stratagems like the Guard Dog "Rover" to handle smaller bugs while focusing on Hunters.

  • Consider using Sentries to help with the attack, but be cautious not to stand in front of them.

  • Wear Light Armor to reduce enemy detection and avoid attracting unwanted attention.

  • Aim for the joints when shooting Hunters to take them down quickly.

  • Avoid grenade launchers, as they can be ineffective against fast-moving Hunters and may cause collateral damage.
