Helldivers 2: Where to Find Hunters & How to Kill Them

If you’re attempting to kill hordes of Hunters in Helldivers 2, you’ll need to pack a great big machine gun and a lot of bullets.

Hunters are one of the basic Terminid enemies in Helldivers 2. They’re incredibly fast and tend to hunt in packs, quickly surrounding their prey and tearing them apart. You’ll know you’re up against a Hunter when you spot their orange wings and long white legs. Fortunately, they’re very easy to kill if you know what you’re doing. Below, we’ve explained the best way to kill them and how to locate them in Helldivers 2.

Where to Find Hunters in Helldivers 2

Hunters can be found on any Terminid-controlled planet, which are on the east side (right-hand side) of the Galatic War map. You will find them in most Bug Breaches and Bug Nests and can occasionally be seen in Terminid Patrols. They always come in huge packs, as they like to overwhelm the player with numbers as opposed to strength like the Chargers. If you don’t know what they look like, you can see one in the image below:

How to Kill Hunters in Helldivers 2

Hunters can be killed quickly by just a few bullets from any gun in the game. Because they are not armored, their whole body is a weak spot, and are therefore weak to any weapon. However, the most efficient way to take out a Hunter is with either the AR-23 Liberator or the Machine Gun stratagem. These will pretty effectively mow down hordes of Hunters, quickly completing any daily challenge you have associated with them.

Of course, it’s important to remember that they can very easily overwhelm you if you don’t take them out quickly enough. The best strategy is to shoot them from afar, maintaining your distance and unleashing deadly stratagems when they’re huddled together. That’s everything there is to know about Hunters in Helldivers 2. For more guides just like this one, be sure to check out our Guide Hub.
