Can You Customise Your Ship in Helldivers 2?

Are you keen to customise your ship in Helldivers 2 and wondering if you can spruce it up a bit? Here’s everything you need to know.

We’ll start with the bad news: no, technically you can’t customise your ship in Helldivers 2. There’s no way to furnish your ship, make it more homely and add those little personal touches. This isn’t Animal Crossing, after all. If you want that level of customisation, it isn’t the game for you. Sorry. We’d love to see our ship get a little more cosy too, but it’s not going to happen.

Not all is lost, however: you can upgrade and change your ship over time, even if you can’t customise it. Head to the ‘Ship Management’ consoles near to your ship’s bridge. From there, you’ll be able to buy various upgrades to your ship which, along with changing your ship’s appearance, will give you various benefits while playing.

For instance, some ship upgrades will give you access to new stratagems, while others will change the effect of existing stratagems. Happily, every upgrade also affects the appearance of your ship in some way. It’s not a custom change, but it’s better than nothing, and we’re glad we can see our ship improve over time.

Who knows, maybe developer Arrowhead Game Studios will add the ability to decorate our ships further down the line – but we’re not going to count on it.
