All Mission Types in Helldivers 2

Here are the four main mission types in Helldivers 2:

Mission TypeDescription
Bug Extermination (Terminid Faction)In my opinion, these combat missions are focused on eliminating major Terminid threats and destroying their hives.
Defend Freedom (Terminid Faction)I must say, these Defensive missions are all about protecting human interests from the Terminid invasion, including data recovery, surveying operations, and civilian evacuation.
Protect Liberty (Automaton Faction)I have concluded, these sabotage and recon missions are related to disrupting the robotic Automaton forces, like disabling propaganda, destroying supply stockpiles, and intelligence gathering.
Destroy Automatons (Automaton Faction)These are the best missions which are focused on direct combat missions, eliminating major Automaton war assets and forces through targeted strikes on key targets.
