The NUX-223 Hellbomb is a standard-issue Stratagem, available to all Helldivers regardless of rank. However, Helldiver Command only provides this Stratagem during missions that require the destruction of a stationary enemy target (Automaton Stratagem Jammer, Shrieker Nests, Illegal Research Station etc).

Tactical Information

  • The Stratagem Code may be easily remembered by splitting it into 3 sections; Down-Up-Left, Down-Up-Right, Down-Up
  • After the Hellbomb has been deployed, it must be manually armed by interacting with its panel and inputting the code shown. Then, a swift reverse advance is recommended due to its huge blast radius (about 25m).
  • Most stationary targets requiring the approval of the Hellbomb Statagem may be destroyed more efficiently with other Stratagems. The Hellbomb is offered as a plan B in case the Helldivers are unable to deal with the objective otherwise. Except for Gunship Facilities, which require a Hellbomb or can be destroyed with a SEAF Artillery: Mini-Nuke if available.
  • Damaged Hellbombs may be randomly found during missions as a Minor Place of Interest. They may also be found without the usual characteristics of the Minor Place of Interest type, lacking an inscription, loot and other distinguishing features. This type of Hellbomb may be found during Challenging Difficulty Icon.pngChallenging+ missions, or in the foggy Biome on all difficulties.
  • The Hellbomb has an explosion radius of 25 meters. Its damage is so massive that there's no observable damage fall off to Helldivers.
  • Marking a called-in Hellbomb will play a "Hellbomb" voiceline, to alert your teammates of its presence. This does not work for environmental Hellbombs.

Change History




  • Hellbombs now get called down facing the player, rather than away from the player.



  • Fixed issue where Hellbombs would not deploy on certain missions.
