Look out below! Here’s everything you need to know about how to use grenades in Helldivers 2 – something that can quickly get you out of a jam.
Helldivers 2 is an all-guns-blazing sort of game. Shooting enemies is your bread and butter here, but it’s not the only line of the defence you have. Your arsenal also contains grenades. These little pocket bombs can deal a lot of damage to multiple enemies at once – and if you’re in a bind, they can be very helpful.
Using grenades in Helldivers 2 couldn’t be easier: simply press right on your d-pad to equip them. You can quickly throw in the direction you’re facing by pressing R2/RB, or if you want to aim more precisely, you can press L2/LB first.
That’s all there is to it. But of course, you need to make sure you have some grenades in your inventory before you can throw them. You’ll begin each mission with four. Once they’re gone, you’ll need to find more out in the field. You’ll occasionally find them by exploring, or you can call in a Resupply stratagem to stock up.
