Helldivers 2 developers have denied rumors that experience farmers are harming space democracy

Defenders of democracy can breathe easy – Helldivers 2 players who skip operations in order to quickly earn experience are actually only fooling themselves.



Let’s remember that in Helldivers 2 there is a popular, albeit controversial method of farming experience: find an operation with several parts, go through the mission with the easiest kills and collect samples, and then leave the operation with your bag of experience points. Of course, this is not very democratic, but until recently it was not clear whether this practice gives the Automatons (and beetles on other planets) an advantage over the remaining players.


Previously, Helldivers 2 community manager Evil-Bosse wrote on Discord that “yes, leaving an operation halfway counts as a defeat for Super-Earth,” but now we know that this is not the case.



Another Arrowhead Misty community member commented:


I can confirm that refusing to participate in an operation does not advance the enemy’s percentage, so those who leave operations are not harming the planet. Unfortunately, Evil-Bosse was wrong, but we are all human and we all make mistakes!


So experience farmers are essentially vindicated, or at least are no longer enemy number one. Entering into operations for the sake of quick profit, of course, does not help anyone except the farmers themselves – this is just an example of undemocratic behavior. But, alas, democracy implies the freedom of people to do as they please, and in this case it technically does not harm anyone.


So keep farming for experience, but know that your fellow freedom fighters are shaking their heads in disapproval as they complete those missions you escaped from.
