Helldivers 2 Devastator location and how to defeat them

Where to find Devastators in Helldivers 2 and how to destroy them

Among the bugs and bots of Helldivers 2 lies the enemy with arguably the coolest name of all of them, the Devastator. Surprisingly, this isn’t the enemy type with chainsaws for arms, but instead one of the tall mechs in the Automaton army. These things are slow but heavily armored and can hit you with both melee and ranged attacks to ruin your day.

We’ll explain where you can find them to fulfill the current Helldivers 2 daily mission to kill 15 Devastators. If you’re looking for a different enemy type then check out our guide to every enemy type in Helldivers 2.

Devastators can currently be found in the Severin Sector on the far right section of the galaxy map. Thankfully, when an enemy type is selected as the daily objective, they have a boosted spawn rate, and we managed to kill 15 Devastators in just one mission on the planet Malevelon Creek.

Devstators are heavily armored, so unless you have armor-piercing bullets, spraying shots at it won’t get you very far. However, if you can be precise with your aiming then headshots will take them down very quickly. Failing that, try to get behind them where they are completely exposed and of course, explosions are always an option.
