Helldivers 2 Players Absolutely Hate Hellmire, And For Good Reason

Helldivers 2 gamers have sturdy emotions concerning the planets they’re preventing to defend within the sport’s ongoing galactic warfare. First there was Malevelon Creek, which turned a infamous hotspot for gamers, after it was dubbed “Robotic Vietnam” because of its flame-spewing robots, jungle setting, and vital issue. Even if I’ve described an abject nightmare, gamers developed a little bit of a sentimental attachment to the planet, and its many subsequent rises and falls supplied nice dramatic fodder, to not point out materials for the neighborhood to show into memes. Malevelon Creek turned a celebrated locale, and the builders ultimately gave it a vacation. Now, gamers have developed an intense relationship with one other planet, however issues couldn’t be extra totally different.

You see, Helldivers 2 gamers fucking hate Hellmire.

There has by no means been a shittier planet. Consider the worst doable place on the planet, multiply it a number of occasions, and sprinkle in a few of your least favourite individuals, and you continue to wouldn’t come near the ire of us really feel in direction of Hellmire. Hellmire sits clear on the opposite facet of the galaxy from Malevelon Creek, which couldn’t higher encapsulate the huge distinction in how gamers really feel concerning the two. You already know what they do have in widespread although? Hearth.

Hellmire is a planet held by the bug-like Terminids, and also you’d suppose they might have given up or died off simply having checked out it. Hellmire, in contrast to most planets, is stricken by firestorms, which accurately make the floor appear like a visualization of Hell. Positive, it’s honoring its namesake, however may or not it’s any much less a ache within the ass? It’s not unhealthy sufficient that I sometimes drop into Hellmire on high-difficulty operations with overwhelming odds and bugs coming out of each doable gap within the planet, however I even have to fret about not catching hearth on a world whose entire deal is the countless flames scorching it.

Locations like Hellmire are particularly harrowing as a result of a steadiness change (which desperately wants fixing) just lately made by Arrowhead Sport Studios elevated the injury of fireplace from all sources, making any drop onto the planet a fair larger ordeal.

In the intervening time, there’s a significant order selling the protection of various planets throughout the whole lot of the galaxy. Hellmire is amongst them, and once I checked on its liberation standing earlier immediately, it was at a paltry quantity. It was a quantity so pathetic (virtually as unhappy because the variety of gamers actively taking part in on Hellmire in the meanwhile) that I don’t even wish to repeat it right here. By comparability, one other planet in the identical system was nicely on its approach to freedom and having fun with a wholesome focus of gamers. In the meantime, the Helldivers reddit has been flashing with occasional calls to outright “glass” the planet to…remedy?…the issue of its liberation.

In accordance with the neighborhood, “no person desires Hellmire,” and it’s laborious to argue with the numbers. The overall consensus appears to be very “fuck Hellmire,” which may spell a little bit of a humorous concern for the neighborhood and builders, since Hellmire is such a focus of many strategic pushes. It’s to the purpose the place gamers are incessantly joking about simply hitting the bricks and abandoning the planet solely, and it appears to be turning right into a actuality, which could throw a wrench in Arrowhead’s versatile warfare narrative.

Hellmire’s arduousness very a lot looks as if the purpose of the planet, but it surely additionally seems like participant sentiment, which has soured a bit within the final a number of months, has seemingly settled on Hellmire as its newest goal. That, and it’s bought to suck to eat shit to bugs and hearth tornadoes repeatedly. Possibly we’ll see Hellmire fully fall, or possibly we’ll see Arrowhead regulate to the neighborhood’s emotions and pivot away from it for a time. Hopefully, the studio fixes the fireplace injury to curb that entire facet of the equation solely. I’m begging you, Arrowhead. My crops are on hearth.
