This title puts you in the shoes of a soldier who is sent to different planets to complete missions and eliminate the alien threats that have invaded them.

Where to find Devastators in Helldivers 2?

If, like some players, you want to face Devastators, you will have to go to the sectors controlled by the Automatons since this enemy is probably an automaton. However, they will be quite rare and only appear after unlocking a certain difficulty. If a Devastator is in your area, it will be marked with a specific symbol in the shape of an automaton head on your mini-map.

As a reminder, Devastators are a kind of giant bipedal robot that can shoot you with a machine gun or a rocket launcher. He will be an incessant threat to you with his ranged arsenal coupled with disturbing light armor.

How to defeat a Devastator in Helldivers 2?

If you want to defeat a Devastator, you will have to target its weak point. This is his head, the only part of his body that is not armored. To make your life easier when making shots in this area, we advise you to try to aim at his head as much as possible. You can also have fun throwing explosives or other such Stratagems, but using them on a single enemy wouldn't really be wise and could jeopardize your mission.
