The time to dive into bug-infested hell is finally upon us, and for those who pre-ordered any edition of Helldivers 2, there are extra goodies to snag. What’s great is that you can access the pre-order bonus extremely early in your playthrough to look extra stylish while you deliver some much-needed justice to the galaxy’s greatest pests. No matter what edition or platform you’ve purchased Helldivers 2 on, you can unlock these armour sets as long as you’ve pre-ordered.

Here’s all the know-how on accessing the bonuses and what comes with them.

The pre-order bonus comes with 3 sets of exclusive armour that, as of right now, cannot be obtained by any other means. Each armour set also has a unique passive bonus applied when wearing the gear. As Helldivers 2 is a challenging game, every little stat increase will assist you in the galactic war.

Here’s what armour sets you’ll be getting along with their passive upgrades.

TR-9 Cavalier of Democracy
Passive ability: 50% chance to not die upon a lethal hit / prevent bleeding damage if chest haemorrhages

TR-7 Ambassador of the Brand
Passive ability: high armour rating

TR-62 Knight
Passive ability: +50% limb health / +30% throwing range

Simply put, you’ll need to complete the opening mission for Helldivers 2 to be able to equip your pre-order bonuses. Once training is completed and you’ve arrived on your own destroyer, head towards the bridge. On the left will be your arsenal customisation terminal and accessing it will present the pre-order bonuses for you to choose from.

The tutorial won’t take you long to complete, and Helldivers 2 opens up to you at this point to do whatever you want. You now have a solid starter wardrobe to customise your Helldiver and some bonus passives to help you on your conquest for freedom.
