Helldivers 2 Full PC Specs: Minimum Through Ultra System Requirements

You know a game is using some of the latest tech if it’s got four tiers of system specs it can run on. That’s exactly the case with Helldivers 2, which has requirements spanning from a mere GTX 1050Ti/RX 470, all the way up to a RTX 4070Ti/RX 7900 XTX.

So while the game can be absolutely gorgeous for those with the hardware to back it up, it’s still possible to play on PCs with older hardware with less visual flair. All Helldivers 2 specs require Windows 10 with 64-bit processor, which you very likely are already on.

Helldivers 2 Minimum Requirements and Specs

  • Average performance: 1080p at 30 FPS
  • Graphics settings: Low
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050Ti or AMD Radeon RX 470
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-4790K or AMD Ryzen 5 1500X
  • RAM: 8 GB DDR4
  • Storage space: 100 GB HDD (7200 RPM)

This is the only level of spec that allows for HDD use instead of an SSD. 7200 RPM is on the faster side for HDDs and may surpass what you have if you’re using a budget drive.
