For those looking to earn big rewards in Helldivers 2, nothing beats the Major Order mechanic. It’s a way to participate in community-driven events and objectives while earning tons of Warbond medals. Here’s how Major Order rewards work in Helldivers 2!

How to Earn Major Order Reward in Helldivers 2

To earn a Major Order reward in Helldivers 2, you need to help participate in the current Major Order. The goal is usually to attack and liberate a particular planet or set of planets towards an automaton or terminid on the galactic map. Targets can range from one planet to three or four at a time.

But you are not alone in the struggle. The entire community works to complete a major order at any given time. Every time you complete a mission on one of the target planets, it counts for everyone playing the game.

When will you receive the Major Order reward in Helldivers 2?

After a Major Order is completed, you will usually receive your rewards the next day, when the next Major Order goal begins. When a task changes, you will receive a pop-up notification telling you the total number of Warbond Medals you have earned by participating in the task. Most pay 40 or 50 medals.

Why haven’t I received a major order reward?

There are times when objectives are completed in a major order but not rewarded. This happened to me recently, where after participating in the liberation of multiple planets, I was not fully rewarded. I earned only one Warbond Medal for my efforts.

This could be due to server issues, which unfortunately have been common since the game’s launch. It’s unclear if the issue will receive a hotfix and we’ll see the rest of the medals earned by completing the order.

Where to find the current Major Order in Helldivers 2

You can find the current Major Order in Helldivers 2 by opening the main menu and looking on the right side of the screen. It outlines the top box and the objectives the community needs to complete along with the time frame to complete the job.

Below the major order, you will find your personal order. This is unique to you and is a random task designed to help you learn more about the game mechanics in Helldivers 2 and test out different strategies or weapons. This is just an additional way to earn medals.
