Defend Campaigns in Helldivers 2: How to Win Against the Automaton

What is the Major Order in Helldivers 2?

The Major Order is the primary objective in Helldiver 2's Liberation Campaign. It follows the progress of the Helldivers, with a new order delivered once enough progress has been made in the Galactic War. Those wanting to quickly progress in the story should stick to the Major Order's objectives.

How to Win Defend Campaign Missions against the Automaton in Helldivers 2

Defend Campaigns are specific Automaton Operations that are important to the Galactic War development. The Helldiver Command has moved from the Terminid faction to the Automaton as a surprise attack has begun on multiple Super Earth planets. The Defend Campaign follows a recurring mission: 'Escort and protect the researchers as they travel to the extraction zone.' Each Operation increases in size as you unlock harder difficulties, where you must complete the escort and other missions to finish the entire Defend Operation.

Once the Defend Campaign is complete, it will count towards the Major Order. Completing eight Defend Campaign Operations against the Automaton rewards you with 12500 Requisition. There is a timer to complete this Major Order before Command moves onto the next problem the Helldivers must overcome.
