Helldivers 2 Orange Samples

Orange Samples in Helldivers 2 are considered "rare" compared to Green Samples and are crucial for upgrading higher-tier Stratagems. Here’s how to get your hands on them:

Focus on Difficulty

  • Unlike Green Samples, Orange Samples won’t appear until you play on missions with a difficulty rating of 4 (Serious) or higher. Higher difficulty missions have a greater chance of spawning Orange Samples.

Clear Bug Nests

  • Your primary source of Orange Samples will be from clearing medium and large-sized Bug Nests. These sprawling nests often contain Orange Samples as loot after you eliminate the inhabitants.

Look Around Egg Nests

  • While not guaranteed, the area surrounding Egg Nests can sometimes house Orange Samples. You don’t necessarily need to destroy the eggs to find these Samples, but clearing the area for safety is recommended.

Mission Selection

  • While Eradicate missions are great for Green Samples, they are not the most efficient way to farm Orange Samples.
  • Consider missions with a focus on Bug encounters, such as "Exterminate Bugs" or "Secure Listening Post" on higher difficulties.

Work with your Team

  • Communicate with teammates to mark discovered Orange Samples and prioritize clearing Bug Nests to maximize your findings per mission.

Alternative Methods (Less Consistent)

  • Orange Samples have a small chance of appearing in lootable containers scattered throughout some maps. However, relying solely on this method is unreliable.
  • Completing specific Warbond challenges may reward Orange Samples, but these are not always available and depend on the current Warbond season.

Here are some additional things to keep in mind:

  • Patience is Key: Orange Samples are rarer than Green Samples, so be prepared to play multiple missions before accumulating a significant amount.
  • Enjoy the Game: Don’t get discouraged if Orange Samples aren’t dropping immediately. Focus on completing missions, working with your team, and you’ll naturally acquire them over time.
  • Prioritize Upgrades: Since Orange Samples are valuable, use them strategically to upgrade Stratagems that best suit your playstyle.
