How Gantz the Demon Became Notorious in Helldivers 2

If you’ve been following TikTok videos about Helldivers 2 in the last couple of weeks, then you’ve probably seen Gantz the Demon in a bunch of them. This player joins the teams, but instead of cooperating with their teammates, they friendly-fire them, which ruins the game for everyone.

Unfortunately, this showed a bad example to many players, who started cheering for Gantz and even replicating their actions. They call it the “Rebellion” and such, which may be a cool concept in the fictional world, but not when it concerns real players and their enjoyment of the game.

How to Deal With Gantz the Demon in Helldivers 2

Most of the Helldivers 2 community is extremely annoyed by this notorious player and their actions. They demand to hunt this player down and exact revenge. But I personally believe that this isn’t the best way to go about it. It would be much more appropriate for the developer to introduce the “Report Player” function and be done with it.

Another important thing I need to mention is the amount of unnecessary attention this player gets. I think this kind of highlight should be reduced to a minimum. Once players start ignoring Gantz, they’ll soon be forgotten and stop doing what they’re doing.

Of course, this may spawn other imitators, calling themselves the Gantz followers and creating some kind of fictional insurrection. But all this will quickly go down as soon as people stop investing their time in this nonsense and simply avoid blowing up all the drama surrounding nothing more than a minor incident.

I hope my guide helped you understand who Gantz the Demon is in Helldivers 2. Stay tuned for more HD2 tips and tricks articles, including Planet Status explained and the complete list of all Stratagem Codes.
