Helldivers 2’s Giant AT-AT Enemies Have Returned In Greater Numbers

Now everyone can feel the stress they bring

It feels like just yesterday we rid the universe of the Automaton scum within Helldivers 2 – but of course, it can never be that simple.

In the lead up to our hollow victory, scattered reports from players spoke of a colossal new enemy – a walking factory that would birth robot enemies from its belly. It sounded terrifying, but only a tiny contingent of players even managed to see one before Operation Swift Disassembly completed. Then the Automatons returned, albeit without any giant robot doggo backup.

…Until now.

The Automation retaliation has seen these Factory Striders come back with a vengeance, introducing a new mission type to hunt them down if you are seeking a REAL BIG fight.

But on a more terrifying note, they can now show up as regular enemies in higher difficulties. Quite literally being dropped into the battle via a dropship, they hit the ground and start their slow march towards you, guns blazing.

A Reddit user managed to capture a fairly bone-chilling example of how quickly things can ramp up once the machines start to bring out the big guns:

With a massive top mounted gun and muzzle lasers, the Factory Strider has all the firepower of a proper gun emplacement. Only this bad boy is mobile, and takes quite a bit of firepower to bring down. So the idea of fighting four of them at once is a hard pill to swallow.

Best of luck to all Divers heading into the bot battlefields in the coming days – pack your biggest boom, because you are going to need it.

Are you excited to fight some giant robot walkers? Let us know in the comments or on social media.
