The Automatons are mindless, bloodthirsty robots, coded for nothing but murder and socialist violence. Their origins are a mystery, but their unthinking hatred of Freedom makes them a threat to all citizens of Super Earth. Please note that attempting to discover the origin of the automatons is a crime against Super Earth's imperialistic ideology. Super Earth reminds its citizens that anyone engaging in any way with the automaton propaganda regarding enslavement is a "socialist terrorist".

They are one of two factions Helldivers can currently fight against, with the other being the Terminids.

  • The Automaton Marching Cadence is used by patrolling Automatons
    • The rhythm matches up perfectly with the beeping of randomly scattered pods. They may use those as a metronome.
  • The Automatons were defeated in the first war on the 7th of April 2024.
  • They have since returned on the 9th of April 2024 with a strong assault using FTL technology to invade Super Earth liberated sectors. They came in through the Valdis Sector into the Lacaille Sector and ended in the Hydra Sector. The Valdis Sector is home to Cyberstan which may be a motivator for the Automatons since it is their home world where their creators, The Cyborgs, were captured and forced to work in the mines on the planet.

Change History


  • Undocumented: Added Gunship and Factory Strider.
  • Fix: The Helldiver and the Exosuit both had a bug that made them sometimes take explosion damage multiple times making things like automaton rockets be too deadly, this is now fixed.
  • Fix: Automaton enemy constellations that preferred to spawn more of certain Devastators types did not work and are now functioning as they should. This means that sometimes when playing against the Automatons you will face more Devastators instead of other enemy types.
