The major orders issued to players in Helldivers 2 seem to get our total focus, and it's proof of just how dedicated some can be. After all, if Arrowhead tells them to defend a planet, they'll lay down their life before they let it fall to undemocratic forces.

Helldivers have successfully proved that most orders from the game master of Helldivers are mere chicken feed to the dedicated freedom fighters that stand ready for deployment. They've once again proved their dedication by sweeping through a major order in record time.

Helldivers players kill 2 million Terminids in record time

Helldivers 2 fans have gone harder than ever and have completed an entire major order from Arrowhead Game Studios in mere hours. Now that the Automaton menace has been pushed back somewhat, the latest major order asked players to recover and refill their stockpiles by killing a whopping two million Terminids in six days.

It seems like a tall order for any other community, but knowing the hate for bugs in the Helldivers 2 community, it should have been a piece of cake. Fans proved it to be easier still, as the six-day order was completed in a tiny 14 hours.

Fans have been patting themselves on the back in the Helldivers 2 subreddit, with one player noting that fans "Also did it with a small percentage of the player base, a lot of people never got to even log on for it, and no weekend boost."

"I benefit from being remote, so I snuck a game in during ‘lunch’ in which I delivered Democratic sandwiches full of orbital strikes," adds another who wasted no time in getting involved in the action.

It's a hugely impressive milestone for Helldivers and serves as a testament to just how willing players are to secure democracy for Super Earth. Our loyalty among the ranks is almost enough to bring a tear to your eye.
