Helldivers 2 Players Have Seemingly Wiped Out An Entire Enemy Faction

The Automatons have been scrapped

Many thought it could not be done, but apparently when you ask the players of Helldivers 2 to exterminate a threat they will unite and sort it out.

Over the last few weeks, the Major Orders of Helldivers have asked for the Automaton threat to be eradicated – by way of a stunning play known as Operation Swift Disassembly, which called for every major planet in Automaton space to be liberated swiftly, and forcefully.

Although there were a few stumbles and many (many) lives lost, we now stand here on the dawn of a new day where the robotic menace has been wiped off the galactic map:

This is echoed by the top brass, who also sing praises to the brave souls who weathered the storm of laser fire and giant hulking machines to stop the baby stealing oil-guzzlers. According to the Ministry of Truth, our galaxy is free once more.

It is a day of victory, celebration – and for the treasonous – concern and speculation. We all know that the living narrative of Helldivers 2 is played out a bit like a Dungeons & Dragons campaign, where the actions of the players impact where the story may be heading. With the robots wiped out (for now), does that mean we are having a bug vacation? Do we fear what happens when the bots return? Or will they be on hiatus long enough to reveal another threat? It’s equal parts exciting and worrying.

Whatever the flavour, it’s a masterclass in community-driven story telling. So many players are united in how awesome this outcome is, and I am sure there are companies scribbling down notes on the whole thing – it really is worthy of a study.

For now, players can enjoy a leisurely stroll through some Bug infested planets, and rest easy from the threat of laser fire. It feels good to take a break from dodging rockets, so enjoy the relative peace while it lasts.

Because this kind of joy can only last for so long.
