Helldivers 2 is a video game about intergalactic warfare, and the players take on the role of soldiers with a duty to protect the human race. The gaming community is doing its part to support the game in any way possible and has devised an idea to improve the experience.


Other live service games have incorporated a first-person point of view, which is far more realistic compared to a third-person perspective and looking over the shoulder of the character. Perhaps the developers should look into adding more options for viewing angles in the game.

Helldivers 2 Players Are Open to a New Perspective

The gaming community already lost interest in using the Mech stratagem in the game, but this idea could help change their minds about it.


The destructive capabilities of the Mechs are not enough to compensate for their weak durability and the community has come up with solutions to work around it like being able to swap weapons on each limb and recycling used Mechs that are still functional and repurposing them for another fight.

This new suggestion isn’t directly related to gameplay, but it does have a significant impact on how a player views the battlefield from the cockpit.

Changing from one point of view to another could add an extra layer of immersion and realism. Soldiers in real life do not have the luxury of being able to look over their shoulders or have a much wider viewing angle in the field and the developers should give the exact same experience to the community.

This could help showcase the attention to detail in the interiors of vehicles like Mechs and give the players what they both want and deserve. The developers are working on a massive patch that would hopefully help resolve all the issues in the game and it might not be a tall order to include a first-person point-of-view mode.

A First-Person Mode Wouldn’t Be a Bad Idea for Helldivers 2

Director Johan Pilestedt is always open to fan suggestions and there were a few good ones, like the idea that involves a proper distribution of excess resources through a democratic method of voting which is what the game is all about. The players are pulling their weight to make sure the games stay afloat, and the developers should be more open to ideas.


Arrowhead Game Studios has been facing significant challenges in the past few days, and they should have recognized the importance of seeking external assistance without any hesitation or shame. The steady decline in quality was quite noticeable and the fans are growing concerned for the health and welfare of the developers and are willing to extend a helping hand.

This idea might not be revolutionary or earth-shattering, but it has the potential to enhance the player experience significantly. Other games have benefitted from this feature, and it would make sense for the developers to do the same and reap the same benefits.
