List of All Ship Modules in Helldivers 2

With the Game Master of Helldivers 2 not showing any mercy, players need to unite and work on improving their coordination and using stratagems. A major mechanic that some players forego in Helldivers 2 is Ship Modules. Three types of ship modules are available for each category of Stratagems, which only affect the Stratagems in their class after you have bought them. There are 18 Ship Modules available in Helldivers 2 and they can be unlocked by the samples you collect in-game.
Note: You can only buy a Ship Module if it is the first in its category or if you have already bought the previous Ship Module from it. Ship Modules will first be listed by category and then together for ease of use.
