Hunters are bug-like creatures you will have to fight in Helldivers 2. They are whitish, have orange wings, and move in a hopping manner that makes it easy to recognize them from a distance.

You will come across these creatures on Terminid planets in the game. They could be part of smaller, simpler bug missions or sometimes larger, high-stakes missions.

It’s fairly easy to deal with a Hunter when it’s on its own. However, a group of Hunters can be quite a problem, as they sneak up on you, making it hard for you to fend off multiple attackers at once.

Make sure to maintain a safe distance from Hunters. This is because they can inflict significant damage with just one hit, which could deplete a large portion of your health. Using rapid-firing weapons and explosives is the best way to deal with Hunters. This combination will help you kill Hunters in groups quickly and easily.

If a Hunter, or a group of them, gets too close, you should aim for them when they’re mid-jump launching towards you to take them out accurately. They happen to be pretty quick, so it’s important to eliminate them quickly once spotted.

To handle a single Hunter, you can rely on either your primary or secondary weapons. The Breaker is effective, but the Redeemer pistol works well too. For groups of Hunters, consider using weapons like the Stalwart or Machine Gun. If you feel that your arsenal is lacking, it’s not a bad idea to unlock some weapons.

Remember that Hunters are only found in the orange-colored area of your galaxy map, which indicates Terminid areas. So, if you’re venturing into the orange areas, be prepared to fight these menacing creatures.
