Helldivers One Year Anniversary Quiz – Winners and Answers!

A big thank you to everyone who took part in our big Helldivers One Year Anniversary Giveaway last week.

In our final hardcore quiz we have received over 50 entries – definitely more than we expected – so next year we will have to make the quiz much harder! In total there were only 6 entrants who were completely correct across all five questions.

Congratulations to both cape winners:

And because it seems petty to not give out a prize to the last entrant with correct answers, a pack also goes out to Captqueso who entered on 3/8/2016 at 23:58:44.

We will be sending out emails to you all.

We’ve listed all the questions and answers below for anyone who is interested in checking them out or to see where they went wrong!


What is the morse message beeped by the truth transmitters?
Of the 52 entries only 11 people correctly answered “SUPER-EARTH BEACON ACTIVE.” as the morse code. The morse looks like this:
… ..- .–. . .-. -….- . .- .-. – …. / -… . .- -.-. — -. / .- -.-. – .. …- . .-.-.-

The year Helldivers plays out, together with some comments made by the soldiers on the bridge, reference a book – What book?
19 people correctly identified George Orwell’s book, 1984.

The trophy “Make Frank kill a Tank” is a reference to an old movie quote, but it is also a reference to something else – What?
Make Frank Kill A Tank is also reference to a Penny Arcade strip made after the release of Helldivers. They named the shuttle pilot Frank. Just under half of the participants, 24 in total, got this right!

The soldiers on the bridge reference a comedic sketch about skulls – What sketch?
A whopping 46 people correctly identified the soldiers on the bridge reference the sketch from Mitchell and Webb called “Are we the Baddies?”

With the Stratagem ‘Shredder’ Missile Strike is also a reference to be found – Which?
42 people recognised that The Shredder “Tracking Micro-Nuclear Tactical” missile is a large reference to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

From the other giveaways during the week we had some great motivations for player’s favourite Weapons and Stratagems that deserves honorable mentions:

The Patriot – Because you are what you shoot

Double freedom – Because single freedom isn’t enough!

REC-6 – I’m havin a blast with it

Sickle – Democracy doesn’t stop to reload so why should you?

CR-9 Suppressor – Nothing says Freedom quite like a rocket-assisted, fin-stabilized, high-explosive round to the dome

Anti-tank mines. – Listening to the enemies chasing me blow up sounds like fireworks on Liberation Day and smells like freedom
