Leveling up in Helldivers 2 is crucial as it allows you to get more Stratagems. Not only this but the higher your level, the better the stratagems will be, giving you more of a fighting chance. Getting to level 20 can be a huge time sink and can prove quite challenging if you don’t have good Strategems on hand. Don’t panic, though. There is an easier way to level up quickly and get the XP you need.

The best way to level up and farm XP is to complete a specific mission called the Bug Extermination Operation. To get XP quickly, you’ll want to complete this mission repeatedly on Trivial mode.

Should you get bored of farming this mission, you can alternatively choose to play the Destroy Automatons Operation on Trivial. It’s smooth sailing as long as you have your offensive Strategems equipped.

You’ll earn approximately 150 XP for every five minutes you spend within the mission. This process can get a bit tedious, so you can mix it up between the two or even take on another mission, but these two are the fastest way to farm XP and level up fast in Helldivers 2. Should you find that Trivial is a bit too boring, you can scale the difficulty up, which will result in a higher XP output, but that’s entirely up to you.

That’s everything you need to know about how to level up fast in Helldivers 2. It may be a bit of a slog, but it’ll be worth it in the end.
