Helldivers 2 isn't just about defeating hordes of aliens - it's about doing it in style, too. To look your best, you'll need to earn plenty of Super Credits to purchase cosmetic items - and there's a way to get a bunch of the game's main premium currency for free.

How to earn Super Credits for free

The main way of earning Super Credits (SC) for free while playing Helldivers 2 is by going on missions and interacting with Points of Interest (POI). Additionally, you can get some from the free Warbond.

On the map, POIs will be displayed with a diamond icon and are typically placed far away from your main objectives. 

Not all of these areas will contain SC, but those that do will reward you with 10 at a time, allowing you to slowly build up a tally.

While you can go and spend these in the superstore if you choose, I recommend saving up to 1,000 Super Credits so you can purchase the Steeled Veterans Premium Warbond

This essentially acts as a premium battle pass, and progressing through this allows you to claim even more Super Credits all for free.

Going forward, this should also allow you to purchase future Warbonds with any money you save up, creating a loop that you don't need to spend a penny on.

We'll update this guide if any new ways to earn SC emerge, or if the current system changes at all.
