The Terminid and Automaton factions from Helldivers 2 with a question mark over them

Helldivers 2: Is There a 3rd Enemy Faction?

As if the Terminids and Automatons weren’t bad enough, could Helldivers 2 be getting a 3rd enemy faction? Here’s what you need to know.

In Helldivers 2, players are banding together to repel the Automatons and Terminids. It’s a brutal battle, one that is seeing Super Earth win for the most part. However, while these two enemy factions are bad enough on their own, it is possible that a 3rd one could be added to the game. Below, we explain whether any new enemies will be added to Helldivers 2 for you to blast your way through.

Is There a 3rd Enemy Faction in Helldivers 2?

No, there is currently not a 3rd enemy faction outside of the Terminids and Automatons in Helldivers 2. There are also no officially announced plans to add additional factions to the game. However, it is very likely that a 3rd and potentially 4th faction will be added at a later date.

The original Helldivers only had 2 enemy factions at launch, which were the Bugs and Cyborgs. However, a new faction, The Illuminate, was added at a later date, bringing a whole new section of the galaxy for players to liberate on the map. As the map in Helldivers 2 has plenty of empty space, it is incredibly likely that at least 1, if not 2, more enemies will be added to fill it.
