Gameplay Tips

  • This stratagem can be used to destroy mission targets (Cyborg AA Guns, Bug Nests or Illuminate Beacons) instead of the standard-issue NUX-223 Hellbomb. Like the Thunderer and Missile Barrages, the Shredder can destroy the Illuminate Beacons whilst their shields are still up.
  • The Shredder Missile is a powerful yet situational attack stratagem. It should generally be used for retreat situations and clearing out the area so that your fellow Helldivers can get their dropped equipment back with more ease.
  • Shredder missiles take 9 seconds to reach their coordinates; 6 seconds to be deployed, and 3 to hit the ground.
  • It's very bright flash loud explosion and shaking of the very earth below your feet is known to invoke a lot of feelings among Helldivers. In some cases questionable ones.
  • It is called Tracking Micro-Nuclear Tactical (TMNT) missile "The Shredder" as a reference to a famous group of amphibians living in the sewers and their primary antagonist.
