What are the Best Weapons in Helldivers 2?

According to us, the Railgun is the best stratagem weapon since it deals massive damage against armored and targeted enemies. If you remove its safety, the unsafe mode of this weapon is deadlier than you expect. When you fire this stratagem weapon, it shoots an explosion that can multiple enemies or incoming hordes. But it also comes with a risk of overheating and exploding in your hands.

For the best primary weapon in Helldivers 2, we recommend choosing the SG 225 Breaker shotgun. It’s an automatic shotgun that deals decent damage from a medium-range distance. It has one of the highest damage outputs and can easily take out unarmored or light-armored enemies.

Alternatively, the AR-23P Liberator is also an amazing Assault rifle for taking down armored targets. While having a great range, it also can pierce through Medium Armor. With the combination of high damage and good range, this AR-23P Liberator might be a suitable pick for you.

Since many players have recently started their weapon progression grind, here’s how to unlock new weapons for more insight. As for the decision for the most superior, we leave the rest of the decision to you. That’s because, it all depends on your playstyle, experience, and preferences.
