The Helldivers 2 Exosuit mech Stratagem has been unlocked and is now available for purchase

Goliath online.

Following today’s liberation of the planet Tien Kwan, Helldivers 2 players have successfully unlocked the Exosuit mech Stratagem for purchase. As it is a walking tank, the big toy does have a steep price tag. But there’s good news for those who want to play with it right away.

With Tien Kwan now liberated, Helldivers 2 players can acquire the freshly unlocked mech Exosuit. The Exo-45 Patriot Exosuit Stratagem is available for purchase under the ‘Stratagems’ tab in the ‘Ship Management’ area of your Destroyer ship. You need to be level 25 to unlock it for purchase, and then spend 20,000 Requisition Slips to add it to your arsenal.

The unlocked Exosuit mech Stratagem can be used in Helldivers 2 today regardless of purchase

If you don’t have the level or the funds for the suit, developer Arrowhead Games is throwing the community a bone. The suit is temporarily available in your list of default Stratagems alongside the Supply Drop and others. It’s unknown just how long you can use it without purchase. For now, though, any player can call down the suit for some Bot-busting, Bug-stomping action.

The Exosuit mech is a powerful Stratagem and comes with a short list of strengths and weaknesses. It’s armed with two weapons for arms: A heavy machine gun and a rocket launcher. The machine gun is loaded with 1,000 armor-piercing rounds, and the rocket launcher can fire 14 rockets. Once your munitions are depleted, they’re gone for good.

You can only call down one mech per mission. There doesn’t seem to be a health bar. It’s armored and can take some hits, but it does show damage over time. The moment your mech is out of ammo or destroyed, it’s back to basics. You also can’t use Stratagems once you’re piloting the mech, but you can enter and exit the Exosuit freely.

I can also confirm that it will not survive one hit from a Charger, but you can easily take down the pesky bug with three rockets.
