Highlights
The “Gone in 360 Seconds!” Gold Trophy requires players to complete a full Extreme difficulty (level 6) Blitz mission and extract within six minutes.
Make sure to use the grenades and the GL-21 grenade launcher as your primary way of sealing bug nests before calling in any other stratagems.

Helldivers 2 offers a total of 39 different trophies that players can acquire upon completing diverse challenges within the game. While most Bronze and Silver trophies are relatively easier to obtain, the Gold trophy “Gone in 360 Seconds!” is arguably one of the most difficult to achieve in the game.

Besides familiarizing yourself with the game’s mechanics and enemy factions, this achievement also requires you to be a highly skilled player in terms of weapon use, effective strategies, team coordination, and more. If you are deadset on obtaining this trophy, here’s everything you need to know before you begin this endeavor.

Completing the “Gone in 360 Seconds!” Gold Trophy in Helldivers 2

The “Gone in 360 Seconds!” Gold Trophy requires players to complete a full Extreme difficulty (level 6)  Blitz mission and extract with six minutes left on the countdown timer. Despite the basics of this challenge being identical, many players have taken varied approaches and strategies in completing this trophy.

Although you can get this achievement by playing solo, we recommend that you team up with at least another player before you begin this quest, as it will drastically improve your chances of obtaining this trophy with a minimal number of attempts. Despite having the option to choose between the Automatons or the Terminids, we suggest picking the latter option, as sealing bug holes is relatively easier than the former.

To complete “Gone in 60 Seconds”, you must drop into a Terminid planet, seal the required number of Bug Holes, and extract you and your team out of the region with at least six minutes left on the countdown timer on the top right corner. 

As you might’ve expected, mobility is key for this trophy, as you need to run from one spot to another, fill up the bug holes, and then make your way to the extraction point within the required time limit.

Before you jump into the action, you need to keep in mind to pick the right loadout for your desired strategy. Besides your usual choice of weapons, we recommend switching things up and using items and stratagems like:

  • G-16 Impact or G-6 Frag Grenade

  • GL-21 Grenade Launcher

  • Eagle Airstrike Stratagem

  • Orbital Laser Stratagem

  • Stamina Enhancement Booster

  • Your choice of Light Armor  

Here’s the most effective way to execute this mission:

  • Drop Closer to the Bug Holes: Landing closer to the mission objective (Bug Holes) will help you save precious seconds on the countdown timer.

Drop Closer
  • Use Your Grenades Right at the Start: Although the Grenade Launcher works efficiently in sealing the bug holes, we suggest you save it for later and use the grenades to close the pits.

  • Split the Task With Your Teammates: If you and your teammates can handle enemies by yourself without dying, we suggest splitting up while taking down these bug nests, as it can save you a considerable amount of time.

Extraction Timing
  • Getting the Extraction Timing Right: Keep in mind that your countdown timer will begin even before you drop into the region and leave your pod. This means you will have a maximum of 5 minutes and 45 seconds to execute the mission. In addition to sealing bug holes within the given time, you must remember to account for the 2-minute extraction time it takes for your dropship to arrive, land, and take off.
