Major Orders are community-wide missions that require the collective efforts of all players to complete them.
While the devs at Arrowhead are actively working on fixes, this guide will provide you with community-recommended workarounds that reportedly fixed the issue for many players.

In Helldivers 2, players are tasked with various missions to battle multiple enemy factions and protect Super Earth. One such objective is Major Orders, which are community goals set by the developer that must be completed within a given time. While most players have had consistent gameplay experiences, some have reported issues with progression tracking while carrying out this objective. This can be quite frustrating as advancing through them is essential for unlocking key upgrades and fresh content. Without further ado, here are all the methods you can attempt to fix it!

How Do Major Orders Work in Helldivers 2?

If you are a new recruit to Helldivers 2, you first need to understand how Major Orders work within the game. These objectives are entirely community-based, meaning your sole contribution will not be sufficient to complete them. However, this does not mean you should stop completing your missions as collective progress is key in finishing Major orders.

These objectives mostly involve securing planets from enemy factions, activating bioweapons, defending against enemy attacks, and more. As a reward for completion, you will be offered currencies like Requisition Slips, Medals, and access to brand-new content in the game.

However, there have been many instances where the Major Order’s progress bar has not been keeping track of player progress, regardless of fulfilling these conditions. Although there has been no direct answer regarding this, many believe that the issue might be server-related, as the progress tracking either seems to be delayed or fails to register entirely.

How to Fix Major Orders Not Progressing in Helldivers 2?

Although the developers at Arrowhead are actively working on providing a permanent fix to inconsistent progress tracking, the Helldivers 2 community has attempted several workarounds that reportedly fixed this issue for many players. Here’s everything you can try:

  • Besides rebooting the game and your system, make sure you are running on the latest patch for Helldivers 2, as the devs are implementing several bug fixes through them.

  • Avoid force closing the game while working on major orders as this might disrupt your individual progress.

  • Many players have reported increased tracking accuracy while playing co-op with their friends.

  • Besides playing co-op, replaying possible missions also seems to increase progress tracking.

  • Considering that Major Orders involve liberating colonized planets from invaders, it is also possible that the community has simply not advanced through the mission yet, given its scale. 

  • If you think that the issue is specific to your individual progress, you can also head to Arrowhead’s support page and submit a request for further troubleshooting.
