How to get rid of fog in Helldivers 2

Fog of war.

Sometimes, dropping into a map on Helldivers 2, you will be completely surrounded by fog, unable to see even a few meters in front of your face. This can be incredibly annoying and result in enormous Titans suddenly looming from the mist, leaving you vulnerable.

Thankfully, there is a way to combat this and clear it.

Once you enter the fog around the map, little will be able to be seen. Sometimes, the fog covers the entire map, and sometimes, just patches. Either way, it’s debilitating. To clear the fog in Helldivers 2, you need to look for enormous glowing mushrooms towering out of the fog. These tall Mushrooms are what produce the mist.

Approach the Mushroom and either empty your magazines into it or call in a Stratagem to destroy it. They’re not crazy strong, so it shouldn’t take too long. Once it has been destroyed, the fog should quickly clear.

If you have managed to complete one of the Radar minigames, then the fog mushrooms should be visible on the Helldivers 2 map. They look like small mushroom clouds. However, I find that whenever I end up in the fog, finding a mushroom never takes too long, they’re usually enormous. Once you destroy one of them, it will count towards a side quest in the mission you are currently doing.

If you can see them…

Clearing the Helldivers 2 fog is a double-edged sword. If you are playing on the higher missions, you may want to employ some level of stealth. Avoiding patrols is key to staying alive. The fog can help mask your movements. So, once it is cleared, you are just as visible as the enemy. I would recommend getting into some kind of hidden position before clearing the mushrooms. Once or twice, I have cleared the fog, only to find myself next to a Bile Titan.
