It seems like high-level players are getting more and more toxic as missions get difficult in Helldivers 2. A player recently shared a post for all Helldivers 2 players on Steam listening out all the rules that should be normalized for 8+ difficulty level missions. They made it clear that players must meet these criteria, otherwise they will be kicked from the game.

These try-hards seem to forget that the point of a video game like Helldivers 2 is to provide everyone with an entertaining co-op experience with their friends. The high-difficulty missions are indeed very tricky to complete but not everyone would like to follow these rules. The Steam post sparked debates on social media over the growing problem of toxicity within the Helldivers 2 community.

In this viral post on Helldivers 2‘s official discussion page on Steam, a Helldivers 2 player tried to set the standard for 8+ difficulty level missions because they believe players are trolling “high-level matches.” They made a list of things that players must use in the matches, otherwise they will be kicked.

The player wants everyone to use the right breaker gun, railgun, grenade launcher, and shield. Anything other than these mentioned Stratagems/weapons will get you kicked if you join this player’s squad. They made it clear that players can use their “silly builds or weak guns” on solo missions or with their friends.

Toxic players are ruining Helldivers 2 for everyone

One of the main reasons why people have stopped playing Helldivers 2 is the toxic fanbase. Although the majority of the community is very welcoming and wholesome, it is only a few players that have been spreading negativity. The players quickly started trolling the OP for their impractical and useless suggestions.

Arrowhead devs only get demotivated by all the whining and complaining as they can’t cater to everyone. If players wish to see new gear, weapons, and Stratagems, they need to be patient as they will definitely see new content when Arrowhead introduces the Illuminate, the third rumored faction of the game.

Helldivers 2 is available on Windows and PlayStation 5.
