Helldivers 2 PS5 PlayStation

Helldivers 2 players selflessly chose to save a group of sick children stranded on Vernen Wells in the last Major Order, opting for this heroic act over unlocking the offered Anti-Tank Mines stratagem (again). In recognition of this charitable act, developer Arrowhead has made one of its own, donating to the real-life organisation Save the Children.

This latest twist in the ongoing Helldivers 2 meta-narrative says a lot about the community, which, despite this scribe's best efforts, clearly has no interest at all in unlocking the high-explosive MD-17 Anti-Tank Mines. Creative director Johan Pilestedt posted a receipt for the donation on Twitter and shared a message of Liberty from the Very Sick Children of Super Citizen Anne's orphanage: "Dear Helldivers, thank you so much for saving us. They told us you made a lot of sacrifices (mines/lives) to help us. We'll always be grateful. Now, we can grow up to become Helldivers, too."

Do you think the community made the right choice in saving the children under Super Citizen Anne's care? Are Anti-Tank Mines just not a compelling enough reward? Make your own charitable donation in the comments section below.
