Helldivers 2 is as thrilling as it is fun, and this is the reason why it is so popular and has a massive community. The updates have added something new every time that has kept players engaged, but something seems to be missing as there has been a drop in player numbers.


This means that Arrowhead Game Studios has to do something to get players interested again, and one player has an idea for a feature that the developer could add to the game. This requested feature could allow players to have a good time between missions before they take on the next one.

Helldivers 2 has seen a loss in player numbers, and several players have also been putting off completing major orders, which is not a good sign for the game. Players have also said that the game lacks content, and one player has an idea to bring back players.


Reddit user Federal_Bath8508 took to the r/Helldivers subreddit and shared that the developers should add arcade basketball for players so that they can practice throwing stratagems. This is a great idea, as stratagems can be thrown far, and sometimes they do not land where players want.

The addition of arcade basketball will allow players to practice throwing the stratagems so that they can throw accurately at the places they want to. The community is also in favor of this suggestion and has said that this can be a great addition and could be added to the hangar.


Players also said that this will improve the “throw feeling” and curb unnecessary stratagem waste. One player added that this will be useful for them, adding that they wasted many Cluster Bomb Strategems due to “sh*t throw aiming.” Many players have added that it would be fun to have it on the ship.

One of the most requested additions that players want to see in Helldivers 2 is a bar. User ColemanV said that they would like a bar in another corner of the ship’s hangar. They said that they would like to be able to use above-cap samples to invite other Helldivers in the squad for a “patriotic booster drink.”

They added that it could add a “3-minute stamina or health boost to the squad” and shared that this idea is from Deep Rock Galactic. Another player said that it would also be nice to be able to use extra samples to make consumables and “nuke one negative effect from the mission area,” and added that it could be “100 common or 50 rare per effect wiped.”


User Sigruldar said that a training corner in the ship that can be upgraded as a ship module would be “great.” They shared progression steps, including Stratagem Hero for players with the Super Citizen edition, grenade/stratagem throwing range, shooting range, and support weapon simulator.
