in A new post Over on Twitter/X, Arrowhead Game Studios confirmed that Helldivers 2’s new Viper Commandos Warbond will drop on June 13.

According to the relevant PlayStation BlogViper Commandos Warbond adds new weapons, armor and more.

This includes a new triple-barrel sawed-off shotgun that players can use as a secondary weapon, and a brand new throwing knife. There is also a modified AR-23A Liberator carbine.

The latest armor includes the PH-9 Predator and PH-202 Twigsnappers. Viper Commandos will also feature various new cosmetics and an experimental infusion booster. Notably, Helldivers 2 also introduces customization with vehicle models.

In a series of follow-up tweets from today’s thread, Arrowhead Game Studios also released a statement about its overall approach to Warbonds.

“We’re slowing down the pace at which we release Warbonds,” the devs explained, to make sure they’re even better at launch. The team confirms a new timeframe for “future” Helldivers 2 Warbonds, possibly Viper Commandos to follow.

The developer says they will be “adjusting the arrangement of items in each warband to make room for new item types and higher quality armor and weapons.”

A few weeks ago, Arrowhead Game Studios hired a new CEO, with Shams Zorjani taking on the role. Johan Pilstedt will still be chief creative officer, stating that they want to keep “100% of my focus on the games and the community”.
