Helldivers 2 PS5 PlayStation

Helldivers 2 players have recently managed to blunt the advance of the oncoming Automaton invasion fleet, with the conflict again devolving into a grinding stalemate. However, it seems the machines never rest on their laurels, as reports of the lumbering Factory Striders being deployed in unprecedented numbers begin to trickle in.

Unconfirmed, fanciful tales of similar machines were recorded during Operation Swift Disassembly, the first phase of a much larger campaign. Factory Striders, as they've come to be known, are super heavy weapons platforms capable of manufacturing additional Automatons on the go and shrugging off all but the worst punishment. If the machines can sustain such an assault, new strategies will need to be devised.
