The Exo-45 Patriot Exosuit is basically an Offensive Stratagem in Helldivers 2 which can be unlocked under Ship Managed at your Destroyer SpaceShip under the Ship Management Menu. You need 20,000 Requisition Slips to unlock the Exo-45 Patriot Exosuit.

The Exosuit comes equipped with a minigun with a thousand rounds and 14 rockets at your disposal. The Exosuit’s minigun is great for clearing small bug breaches and weaker Terminids and Automatons, but if you’re going up against bigger enemies, the rockets get the job done. It also clears up any forestry or foliage, allowing you to progress endlessly.

Although, there are a few caveats to the Mech Suit in Helldivers 2. The turn-around time is pretty slow, and it’s pretty slow. It’s not very durable, either, so you should maintain a mid-range distance when facing off against tankier enemies. Last but not least, the cool-down time lasts 600 seconds, a solid 10 minutes before you can call in another Exo-45 Patriot Exosuit.


  • Ideal for clearing smaller crowds and eliminating tankier enemies like Bile Titans and Chargers
  • Clears and tears down Foliage and Trees.
  • Minigun boasts a thousand rounds of ammunition
  • Rocket Damage Output is Insane
  • Can be called in twice for 2 uses


  • Only Bears 14 rockets per Mech Suit
  • Isn’t quite as durable as you’d expect
  • Cooldown time per use is 600 seconds i.e. 10 minutes

The Exo-45 Patriot Exosuit in Helldivers 2 is great for clearing large crowds of smaller enemies like weavers, bug breaches, light to medium armor enemies as well. But when it comes down to larger enemies like Chargers, Hulks, and Bile Titans, you can easily take them out with 2-4 direct rocket hits.

Aim for their weak spots such as the head and backside for maximum damage output. But trying to withdraw from the front lines isn’t useful. It’s better to use the Mech Suit or Exosuit from a medium to long-range distance to make the most of it.
