You can drop items in Helldivers 2 with the press of a single button. Of course, depending on your console, the button presses will be different. Still, whether you want to drop a backpack, a weapon, or samples, the process is simple.

PC players have to hold down the X key to drop items. Doing so will bring up a radial menu where you can then mouse over the item you want to drop and release X. This will allow you to drop whatever you’re holding and free up that inventory space.

For those on PS5 or players using Xbox controllers, you’ll need to hold the down button on the D-pad. This will bring up the radial menu and allow you to choose which item you want to drop.

Dropping items can be quite helpful in Helldivers 2, especially if you’ve been doing a lot of shooting and looting and no longer have the inventory space to pick up mines or supply packs. Equally, dropping supply packs that have their charges depleted is practically required, as you’ll need to be able to free up space to pick up the next supply backpack. Dropping the supply backpack is also a necessity if you are trying to help your teammates, as it allows them to utilize the item and get their much-needed supplies.

That’s everything you need to know about how to drop items in Helldivers 2, whether you’re on PC or Console. Good luck on the battlefield!
