It’s time to do your part citizen! Helldivers 2 is playable on the Steam Deck. Here’s what you need to know before you enlist in the Galaxy’s Last Line of Offence. 

Freedom. Peace. Democracy. 

More than just your Super Earth-born rights, these are the key pillars of our civilisation and our very existence. But war rages on, and everything is once again under threat. It is your duty to take up arms and enlist in the Helldivers program on your Steam Deck today!  

Helldivers 2 has already cemented itself into position as one of the best FPS games we’ve seen in a while. Featuring a four-player co-op and an ongoing galactic war impacted by every player’s action, Helldivers 2 will see you screaming, taking on heroic actions, and sacrificing it all for your comrades. It is worth it… if anyone says differently, they’re a bug sympathiser and should be executed immediately.

How To Play Helldivers 2 On Steam Deck 

Nothing quite says liberty like a 500KG bomb to the face, and there’s no better way to drop that bomb than from anywhere on your Steam Deck. Whilst Helldivers 2 is yet to receive the green tick marking the game verified, it is playable on the handheld. So, what actually is the difference between Playable and Verified? 

Steam Deck Verified Games have passed all compatibility checks and offer a great experience on the Deck.  

Steam Deck Playable Games are functional on the handheld but might require extra effort with the need to configure settings for an optimal experience.

For Helldivers 2, the Deck’s controller icons work, and all functionality is accessible when using the default controller configuration. However, some in-game text is small and potentially difficult to read, and you’ll need to manually dial in graphics settings for the best experience.
