Welcome, Helldiver!

Congratulations on joining the Helldivers, the elite fighting force tasked with spreading Liberty and Democracy across the galaxy. As a Helldiver, you are not just a soldier; you are a beacon of freedom in the darkest corners of the universe.

Before you embark on your journey to liberate alien worlds from the clutches of tyranny, it is imperative that you understand the gravity of your mission. While the enemy may manifest in the form of giant bugs (Terminids) or ruthless robot AI (Automatons), the true battle lies in the fight to protect your loved ones back home. Every mission you undertake, every sacrifice you make, is in service of ensuring the safety and security of your families and fellow citizens.

But fear not, for you are not alone in this noble endeavor. You are part of a brother- and sisterhood of warriors, united by a common cause and bound by unbreakable bonds of camaraderie. Together, we will face the hordes of enemies that stand between us and victory, armed with our wits, our weapons, and an unwavering belief in the righteousness of our cause.

In this manual, you will find everything you need to know to become a proficient Helldiver. From basic training exercises to advanced combat tactics, we've got you covered. So strap in, soldier, and get ready for the adventure of a lifetime. Remember, the fate of Liberty and Democracy rests in your hands.
