Intense Heat

High temperatures increase stamina drain and speed up heat buildup in weapons.

The in-game description gives Helldivers a somewhat inaccurate picture of what Intense Heat really does. The actual effects suffered from Intense Heat are as follows:

  • Maximum stamina is halved. This means it takes half as long for a Helldiver to become winded from constant sprinting, but it also means they regain their maximum stamina in the half the usual time (because the rate of stamina regen is unaffected).
  • Heat-based weapons don't build heat faster, they lose it slower. For instance, the LAS-98 Laser Cannon's heat sink normally takes 15 seconds to completely cool off. Intense Heat makes it take 33% longer (20 seconds). The same percentage change is applied to all heat-based weapons' cool-off duration.
