One of the first things you do in Helldivers 2 is decide the name of your ship, but that comes before you’ve actually had a chance to experience any of the game.

Your ship is where you will be spending a lot of time when you’re not on missions fighting bugs and robots. The ship is also where you can change your weapons, Stratagems and choose what mission you want to take on next in the name of democracy.

The available ship names are from a pre-selected list and are very tongue-in-cheek - so you may want to change the name once you have a better idea of the game's humour. 

Renaming your ship in Helldivers 2 explained

Before renaming your ship, you will need to complete the tutorial and one mission. Once you have completed the mission, you are free to change the name. Here are the steps to follow to rename your ship: 

  • Walk over to your Ship Management computer opposite your ship entrance 
  • Now go to the Destroyer option 
  • On the right-hand side, there will be a button prompt to change the name 
  • Now you can rename your ship

If later on you decide you’re bored with the name, then you can change the name whenever you want, unlimited times. At the moment I’ve opted for the Courier of Audacity, however, there are plenty of great names you can choose from even though you can't completely customise it.

The ship naming function works by combining part one with part two to create a variety of different names. You'll see the name pop up whenever you're on your ship or loading into the game, so it's worth finding something you like. Here are all the different options.
