How to Use a Jump Pack in Helldivers 2

To use a Jump Pack in Helldivers 2, call it in while in-game, equip it to your character, and then hold X on PS5 or Spacebar on PC to activate it. Once you do this, the thrusters will activate, and you have lift off!

It’s important to note that the thrust is very short-lived and lasts only a few seconds. This is enough to get you to higher vantage points to shoot enemies from above and is a handy way to escape sticky situations. You can check the Jump Pack’s charge by looking at its bar icon in the HUD in the lower left portion of the screen and the yellow bar on the back. It will deplete and become red after you use it.
