In Helldivers 2, the Galactic War is the central focus, with players working collectively to spread Managed Democracy across the galaxy. Planet status in Helldivers 2 indicates the level of liberation a planet has achieved. It is represented as a percentage, with the blue portion of the bar indicating liberated land and the red (Automatons) or yellow (Terminids) portion showing areas that still need to be freed. Here's a guide on how to check planet status in Helldivers 2.

Checking Planet Status in Helldivers 2

In Helldivers 2, planet status indicates how much a planet has been liberated. To check the status of a planet:

  1. Navigate to the Galactic War Map on your Destroyer Ship.

  2. Select a sector controlled by either the Terminid or Automaton forces.

  3. Hover your cursor over a planet to view its liberation percentage.

  4. The blue part of the bar represents liberated land, while the red (Automatons) or yellow (Terminid) part indicates areas that still need to be freed.

Liberating Planetsin Helldivers 2

To liberate a planet in Helldivers 2, complete missions available on that planet. The more missions you finish, the higher the liberation percentage increases. Once a planet reaches 100% liberation, you can no longer carry out missions there.

Tracking Major Orders

  1. To track Major Orders, enter your Super Destroyer ship and open the 'Dispatches' menu at the bottom-right of your screen (hold down the L2 button on PlayStation 5).

  2. Read the Dispatches for detailed information on the Major Order and its progress.

  3. On the Galactic War map, follow the white Super Earth icon to find planets involved in the Major Order.

  4. Hover your cursor over these planets to see the progress bar, percentage completed, and the number of Helldivers dispatched.

Tips for Success

  • Play in a squad to increase your chances of success.

  • Focus on planets where you can make a meaningful difference.

  • Change your gear to match the mission requirements.

Tracking War Progress

  • The Major Order section on the right-hand side of the galactic map shows when the Major Order ends, the list of planets needing liberation or defense, and your reward.

  • Follow community discussions on Reddit or the game's official Discord channel.

  • Visit the Helldivers.io website for detailed information on the ongoing war, including percentage gains per hour and visual supply lines.
