Helldivers 2: How to Destroy Fuel Reserves & Silos

If you’re having trouble figuring out how to destroy Fuel Reserves and Silos in Helldivers 2, don’t worry! We’ve got you covered.

There are plenty of missions to take on as you liberate your way through the Sol system in Helldivers 2. One of them requires that you destroy Fuel Silos that contain Fuel Reserves. However, the game isn’t clear on how to do that. Fortunately, the process is quite simple.

How to Destroy Fuel Reserves in Helldivers 2

The best way to destroy Fuel Reserves and Fuel Silos in Helldivers 2 is to call down a Hellbomb Stratagem, activate it using the terminal and wait for it to explode to take out the Fuel Reserves. You can attempt to destroy the Fuel Reserves by other means, such as by calling in a Precision Orbital Strike, but we wouldn’t recommend it. Hellbombs are definitely the way to go for this one.

Follow these steps to destroy Fuel Reserves easily in Helldivers 2:

  • When in the mission area, call in a Hellbomb Stratagem and place it near one of the Fuel Silos containing the Fuel Reserves
  • After it has landed, interact with the terminal and input the code on the screen. This will activate the Hellbomb
  • Immediately after doing this, make sure to run! After you activate the Hellbomb, it’ll initiate a short countdown until it explodes
    • It’s a good idea to communicate with your teammates to ensure they are at a safe distance. It has a large explosion radius!
  • If there are multiple Silos to take out, you may need to repeat this process until you destroy them all

It’s important to note that the Hellbomb Stratagem is mission-specific, meaning that the Stratagem won’t appear for you unless you are in the mission area. Fortunately for this one, Hellbombs are available for you to call in and blow everything to smithereens! Just make sure you clear the area quickly after calling one in as you’ll likely be dipping into your Reinforcement reserves otherwise.
