Helldivers 2 Polar Patriots Warbond: Release date, weapons, armour, and more

Super Earth defenders are getting ready for cold planets

feature image

As expected, a new premium Warbond called Polar Patriots is coming for Helldivers 2 players. This new battle pass was leaked after the recent update that tweaked several weapons in the game, resulting in a big shake-up with the meta.

Now that the warbond has been officially revealed, we have gathered all the details about it so you can find out what's coming this time.

Release date

The Polar Patriots Warbond is set to be released on Thursday, May 9 for all Helldivers 2 players on PS5 and PC. We expect this battle pass to cost 1000 Super Earth credits, just like the previous one.

Trailer

In case you haven't seen it, this is the trailer for the new warbond that shows us some of the new additions in-game:

Weapons and armor

Here are all the weapons, primary and secondary, and armor included in this battle pass along with each of their descriptions:

Primary weapons

  • AR-61 Tenderizer: A real tentacle-tearer. This high calibre assault rifle has awesome stopping power but limited magazine size, so make each shot count. Unpatriotic “banter” shots are not advisable.
  • SMG-72 Pummeler: A slower rate of fire than your other SMGs but these concussive rounds will leave your enemies dazed, confused, and still very ugly. Good things come to Helldivers who wait.
  • PLAS-101 Purifier: Set the trap. Hold the trigger. Let them charge at you. Smile. They’re getting closer. Smile again. Closer. Smile. Closer. Smile. Closer… and release the trigger. S.P.L.A.T. The longer you can hold your nerve, and the trigger, the bigger the damage.

Secondary weapons/Utility booster

  • G-13 Incendiary Impact: Don’t waste time reading the instructions, lob it at the enemy and run. This thing detonates on impact and ignites the area in white phosphorus, so make sure you – and your allies – are not standing around having a chat.
  • P-113 Verdict: The guys in R&D love this one. Gas-operated, semi-automatic, and chambers the largest centrefire cartridge of any lunpistol of its kind. “Rapid Deliberation”, they call it. Quick-draw to look cool in front of your squad.
  • Motivational Shocks: Literally shocks Helldivers back into action after being hit and slowed by sneaky, unjust attacks like the revolting bug acid vomit. Won’t help you much with area effects like EMS strikes, though.

Armor

  • CW-36 Winter Warrior: Blend into snowy environments with perfect camouflage. The enemy will never see you coming, until it’s far too late. Ah the sweet smell of stealth. Passive boost – Serve-assisted.
  • CW-22 Kodiak: Thoroughly pressure-tested by patriotic volunteers as part of the Test Subjects for Super Earth Citizen Advancement Programme. Their sacrifice shall not be forgotten. Passive boost – Fortified.
  • CW-4 Arctic Ranger: Features a nifty utility belt boasting handy pockets that can be filled with any number of things – pocket knives, mementoes, interesting rocks, Terminid tentacles, bits of bots, etc.

Other cosmetics

To complete the package, the warbond will include three capes, three player cards, and three emotes. You can see these minor cosmetics in the following image:

Here are the descriptions for each of the capes in case you're interested:

  • Dissident’s Nightmare: Scientifically proven to be “terrifying” to dissent-afflicted citizens during extensive testing in Patriotic Rehabilitation Centres.
  • Pinions of Everlasting Glory: All but ensures ascension to the immortal ranks of those enshrined in the Super Earth Digital Archive of Valorous Acts.
  • Order of the Venerated Ballot: Adorned with the insignia of the Order of the Venerated Ballot – a Ministry-sanctioned Patriot’s Club for citizens pledging to preserve the sanctity of voting.
