Helldivers 2: all Boosters and how to get them

Building up your character and being a team player is critical in Helldivers 2. A mission is doomed from the start if you only look out for yourself, but you might be overlooking an easy way to give yourself and your squad some extra support. Boosters are just one of the many ways to customize your trooper, but perhaps one of the most important.

These aren’t handed out automatically, so if you don’t know how to get them or, even more importantly, what they do, you are putting yourself at a needless disadvantage. We’re here to train you on all the Boosters in Helldivers 2 and how to get and equip them for your next mission.

There are only seven Boosters in Helldivers 2 that unlock in sequence, so it may be worth grabbing one early, even if you spy one more to your taste if it won’t unlock for quite a while. Note that Booster effects do not stack if more than one player in your team has them, so try to make sure everyone has a unique one equipped. Here’s every Booster and what they do.

Hellpod Space Optimization

  • Ensures that each player on the team starts each mission with full ammo, grenades, and stims.

Vitality Enhancement

  • All players gain an increased resistance to injury

UAV Recon Booster

  • Increase your radar effective range

Stamina Enhancement

  • Boosts everyone’s max stamina and how quickly it recovers

Muscle Enhancement

  • Makes it easier to traverse across terrain

Increased Reinforcement Budget

  • Gives you more reinforcements

Flexible Reinforcement Budget

  • Makes reinforcements spawn faster

How to get Boosters

Boosters are obtained only by going to the Acquisitions Center and into the Helldivers Mobilise! Warbond battle pass. From there, Boosters start showing up on pages 3 through 9, with Flexible Reinforcement Budget as an exception since this one is located in the Stelled Veterans battle pass on page three.

Each one costs a certain number of Medals to unlock, but once you have one, you can either equip it via the Armory in your ship or when setting your loadout before a mission. We suggest doing so in the loadout menu since you can coordinate with your team on which Boosters each person has equipped so no one overlaps.

How to get Obsidian in Lego Fortnite
Lego characters mining a boulder.

Obsidian is almost as rare a resource in Lego Fortnite as it is in real life. This black, razor-sharp material can only be found in the most dangerous environments. That means knowing where to find it is only part of the trouble. The real test will be in preparing yourself to survive the trip. You'll also need the tools necessary to collect it. If you're ready to face the heat, here's how to get Obsidian in Lego Fortnite.
Where to find Obsidian

Obsidian is an ore, so if your first instinct was to look for Obsidian inside of caves, then you're on the right track. Unlike something like Marble, however, Obsidian isn't as common or in as easy to reach places. Obsidian will be found deep into caves near lava, but only caves found in a desert biome will have lava inside.

How to rank up fast in Modern Warfare 3: best ways to farm XP
A soldier with a shotgun in Modern Warfare 3.

Every year when the new Call of Duty title drops, the playing field is once again reset as everyone needs to start grinding back up the ranks. Fully embracing the RPG elements, Modern Warfare 3 once again allows you to earn XP as you play match after match to rank up your character, with each rank not only bringing you closer to hitting prestige but also unlocking new options for your chosen operator. Your player rank is unique from your weapon levels and can take a lot longer to grind if you don't know the most efficient methods. If you want to fast-track your career through the ranks, here are the fastest ways to earn XP in Modern Warfare 3.
How to earn XP fast in Modern Warfare 3
There's basically no way you can play Modern Warfare 3 without earning XP, but some modes and methods can earn you double (or more) what you could if you were just playing without a plan.
Play the objective

We all love playing team deathmatch or any other mode where all you need to worry about is being the one to shoot first. However, if you want to earn that sweet XP fast, you need to choose one of the objective modes like Domination, Hardpoint, Ground War, or even Kill Confirmed. Not only do you get XP for killing enemies, but the amount you get on top of that for playing the objective can make up the bulk of your XP gain. This is especially true if you're not at the top of your game and end up dying more than you kill since you have another method to contribute. Also, objective modes grant you an XP bonus just for finishing the match.

All Lunchbox locations in Alan Wake 2
Saga finding a lunchbox in the forest.

Collectibles are nothing new to the Alan Wake series. The first game's primary trinkets you would be scrounging around for were coffee thermoses, but those now serve as save spots in Alan Wake 2. What replaces them are several new types, such as Cult Stashes and Nursery Rhymes, but those are more puzzles than pure collectibles. The Alex Casey Lunchboxes are pure, hidden objects that just need to be found to unlock -- no puzzles or keys required. Aside from the trophy/achievement you get for finding them all, what they hold inside is more than worth the effort of collecting them. No, it isn't someone's leftover sandwich, but precious Manuscript Fragments required to upgrade Saga's guns. We've all lost track of Lunchboxes in the past, so here is where you can find them all in Alan Wake 2.
All Lunchbox locations
Across every major zone you go to as Saga in Alan Wake 2, you can get a total of 21 Alex Casey Lunchboxes. Each one has a few Manuscript Fragments and a little cryptic or creepy note attached for some additional lore.
