A Possible “Steam Review Bomb” Cape for Helldivers 2 Is on the Horizon

During the chaos of the review bombing of Helldivers 2 on Steam, developer Arrowhead Studios took the review bombing itself and turned it into a cape.

Since its release in early February, Helldivers 2 has taken the world by storm and grabbed the attention of players worldwide. Those on PC and PlayStation have had a brilliant time eradicating bugs in space, and those on Xbox could potentially be joining the fight. However, after PlayStation decided to require a PSN login on PC to play, Helldivers 2 highlighted the situation and created a cape to show off players’ frustration in a lighthearted way.

What Is The Steam Review Bomb Cape in Helldivers 2?

In typical fashion, the Helldivers 2 community has made light of the review bombing of the game’s Steam page by sharing ideas for a new cape design in Helldivers 2 inspired by the negative reviews. Arrowhead’s CEO, John Pilestedt, even found out about this gag himself on X (formerly Twitter).

He engaged with the community and mentioned that the team is currently thinking of a name for the upcoming cape. He also posted an image on X of a snippet of a cape that looks like the infamous Steam Review Bomb cape ideas that have been circling X. This screen capture only solidifies that the cape will most likely be coming to the game, and likely soon. Now, the only question that remains is when we will get it.

Potential Steam Review Bomb Cape

Now that the Steam review bombing from fans has made PlayStation backtrack on their decision to use PSN login for PC, which ultimately stopped over 170 countries from enjoying the game, fans can likely see this cape come to Helldivers 2 soon. There is speculation that the cape will be free to players, as Pilestedt jokingly said to a user, “It’ll be $999.99 easy,” and then added, “Haha, it will ofc be free.” It would be a great incentive if Helldivers 2 gifted this cape to everyone, which is likely to happen, but we won’t know for sure until it goes live.
