Players dislike seeing a battle pass system in a game, even if it only costs $39.99. It typically indicates that the developer or publisher will milk the community dry via microtransactions.
However, at the moment, Helldivers 2 offers one of the finest implementations, as you can gain everything in-game for free, except for the cost of the game itself. To activate the pass’s special gifts, you must first collect Warbond Medals. Here’s how you may earn Medals to unlock products and cosmetics!
Warbond Medals in Helldivers 2
To gain Warbond Medals in Helldivers 2 without paying any in-game currency, execute activities on the Galactic War board. When choosing your next task, pay close attention to the rewards.
You’ll notice that some, as shown in the screenshot below, award one or two Warbond Medals for successfully fulfilling the task.
Each tier has eight unlocks, and unlocking the complete battle pass requires a staggering 1,200 Warbond Medals.
What to Spend War Bond Medals On First?
You must unlock all eight items per tier to make it through the entire free battle pass in Helldivers 2. However, not all available items are equal. Some, such as Super Credits, provide free premium currency that you don’t have to pay for.
Super Credits can be used to purchase premium cosmetics from the game’s microtransaction store.
I propose first unlocking Super Credits with your Warbond Medals and then working your way through the rest.
I recommend starting with the weapons since they are the most useful in accomplishing tasks, followed by the armor cosmetics, and then unlocking the different emotes and player cards. Do not be like me and open a player card first, wasting your Medals.
