There are multiple gameplay altering conditions, known as effects and modifiers respectively, that occur in Helldivers 2. While they range in scope and effect, they can significantly alter your experience between different planets and difficulties.

Effects are mission modifiers that introduce changes to regular gameplay. Several types of effects may be present (including multiple at a time) dependent on the planet's biome, faction, and your operation difficulty.

Physical Conditions

Physical conditions are temporary effects that a Helldiver might experience in combat, such as broken limbs, slowness, or bleeding. For further information, see physical conditions.

Environmental Conditions

Environmental Conditions are a type of planetary effect that alter environments during operations on a planet. Typically consisting of meteorological events, planetary effects correspond with the geography and climate of the planet your operation is on.

Operation Modifiers

Operation modifiers are a type of effect that apply a debuff past certain difficulties. With one modifier introduced at difficulty 5, and an additional modifier added at difficulty 8, they can drastically increase the difficulty of your operation.


When picking your Stratagems, you have an option to select a booster which will affect you and your entire team. Choose wisely Helldiver.
