Helldivers 2: Is the Liberator Penetrator Worth it?

Players looking for an upgraded version of the AR-23 Liberator in Helldivers 2 may want to consider the Liberator Penetrator. Unfortunately, it might not be worthwhile.

Helldivers 2 has a number of guns players can unlock via the various Warbonds. One such gun is the AR-23P Liberator Penetrator, with its selling point being it can penetrate medium armor. However, it does significantly less damage than the default Liberator, which may make some players wonder if it’s worth using. Below, we explain whether it’s the gun for you.

Is the Liberator Penetrator Worth it In Helldivers 2?

Yes, the AR-23P Liberator Penetrator is worth it if you prefer accurate shooting. However, if you prefer to spray your enemies with a hail of bullets, it is not worth it. This is because the Liberator Penetrator is only more powerful and effective if you specifically target weakpoints. Additionally, it is almost completely ineffective when taking on Terminids.

The Liberator Penetrator does 20% less damage, has 33% less capacity, and much worse recoil than the default Liberator. Additionally, it can only shoot in semi-auto and burst modes. However, while it is less powerful when shooting enemies, it does more damage when targeting weakpoints due to its ability to penetrate medium armor.

Ultimately, unless you’re very accurate with your shooting, the poor trade-off of lower damage makes it far less effective than the default Liberator. Additionally, while it can penetrate medium armor, its bullets will still ricochet off Devastators and won’t affect Scout Striders. That’s everything you need to know about the Liberator Penetrator. For most players, it’s probably not going to be worth using. Fortunately, there is a vast range of other amazing guns in Helldivers 2 that everyone should use.
