Overcoming the Hurdle of Helldivers 2 Bile Titans

Defeating a Bile Titan in Helldivers 2 has always been an intricate task, even more so for novices or those trying their hand at higher challenges. These intimidating creatures can become a habitual objective in your missions. On advanced levels, such as Hard difficulty, the appearance of Bile Titans becomes a common sight, emerging frequently during bug bursts.

In this context, developing a strategic approach to eliminate Bile Titans in Helldivers 2 swiftly becomes a necessity, and here is a handy guide on mastering the art.

Techniques to Vanquish Bile Titans in Helldivers 2

Bile Titans claim to be among the most formidable adversaries in Helldivers 2, courtesy of their heavy armor. However, all is not lost as their mouths, and the green underbelly radiating a luminescent glow are their Achilles' heel, becoming the prime focus of your attack. Be mindful, though; these areas maintain a reasonable level of armor, calling for explosives and armor-piercing weapons to speedily undermine such a formidable adversary.

The following armor-piercing weapons and Stratagems are known for their effectiveness against these giant bugs:

  • Railgun
  • Autocannon
  • Recoilless Rifle
  • Railcannon Strike
  • Eagle 500kg Bomb
  • Eagle 110mm Rocket Pods
  • Autocannon Sentry
  • Rocket Sentry

Effective Squad Strategies in Helldivers 2

While employing all the weapons mentioned above and Stratagems for a single titan is redundant, if each squad member carries at least one, it presents an assortment of strategies to execute.

The environment always serves as your ally as you maneuver yourselves to evade the offensive onslaught of the Bile Titans and make its movement as challenging and restricted as possible. Also, always strive to maintain a safe distance. However, when the Bile Titans veer too close, directly running under it and sidestepping its leg attacks can turn the tables in your favor. Utilize a teammate's well-placed Hellpod to inflict significant damage on larger foes.

Don't lose heart if you are at a relatively low level and lack access to these weapons and Stratagems. You can still conquer a Bile Titan with a reasonable and coordinated plan. Equip yourself with the Anti-Materiel Rifle, Expendable Anti-Tank, or Recoilless Rifle as your backup artillery. The trusted old Orbital Precision Strike remains a reliable ally, but it's wise to swap it for the Eagle Rocket Pods once you hit Level 10. Although the Sentry turrets accessible at these levels inflict minor damage, they can double as an effective diversion tactic.
