While the cat’s away (at E3), the mice will have giveaway!

Update: We have replied to all the winning tweets asking for their shipping details, and announced in the PS4 communities that we’ve messaged all the winners for their details. Congratulations everyone!
We will try and make something useful for you all from the useful tips, plus some of our own, to share with new players.

We were planning this week to give you an in depth and interesting post about communication and team work, but the people responsible for that has managed to sneak away to E3.
Kindly enough, they sent us back home some pictures, to show how much they miss us…

We’re sure they’re absolutely devastated.

In the mean time, it’s Friday after all! It was a long time ago we did something fun (with presents!) for you all, so we’re hosting a small giveaway competition. It won’t be too complicated so why don’t you read on below for your chance to win a treat.

    Please be careful about using the reinforcements, it can kill you or your friends #HelldiversTips

    • Check the instructions above carefully, I’m afraid we can only accept competition entries in the communities or on Twitter this time. :)

    Nice surprise Arrowhead. I think I actually got mine in on time (except I don’t know about competition from others on Twitter). Either way, I appreciate the play while the cat is away.

    When are the announcements?

    • We have messaged each person that won on twitter and announced it in the PS4 communities, to make sure we got shipping details back from the right person.
      We’ll try and make some good use from all the tips however, maybe a list everyone can use to share with new players.

        I was the second reply on twitter. I haven’t been contacted.

        When fighting Morak watch for the floor to start turning blueish grey, that’s the signal to stop shooting and start running! #NeedFoodBadly

        It’s Friday! Time for giveaway competition right? Keep your eyes open and we’ll post rules shortly. Follow #NeedFoodBadly for the results!

        • Let me have a look and I will get back to you!

        • Ah I see, your tweet didn’t show up in our feed of this hashtag for some reason. Of course you deserve a prize! We’ll poke you on twitter :)

            You guys rock!

    That is a very cool idea for a give-a-way . And it is also a great concept to post tips for playing on the community forum and Twitter #. I’m not going on to post but I will put a tip for Helldivers here. Be ready and be fast when entering the codes to deploy Stratagems.
    I am a high level Helldivers player (very high before the update or expansion released) and there is a lot of criticism about “those people” on the internet but none of that is about me.
    I can think of many funny tips for Helldivers but I will not dwell on that all night. One is “Stay away from the rabid player killer or the runt of the litter that slows the team down while saying how awesome they are and how bad you are. Those guys are so horrible it is funny. LOLing”
