What is a Warbond in Helldivers 2?

A Warbond is essentially a Battle Pass. There’s one in the base game, as well as a premium one called Steeled Veterans. Cutting Edge will add another Premium Battle Pass, allowing players to use Medals to unlock new rewards.

Are Helldivers 2 Warbonds free?

No, the upcoming Cutting Edge Warbond will require Super Credits to purchase. While these can be found in-game, and unlocked via the base Battle Pass, you may need to spend real money to get enough to unlock the next Warbond. A price has yet to be given, but if it’s the same as the other Premium Warbond, it’ll be 1000 Super Credits.

New Warbond will function the same as the other two currently in the game. You’ll earn Medals in missions, and then use them to slowly work your way through the Battle Pass rewards. You will not have access to everything after buying the Warbond.
