I’m just a level 19 Helldiver on leave and eating Democracy Burgers in Super Tokyo—just a lowly voice in the struggle for liberty.
But, I’d like to requisition some tools for the warfront that are not necessary, but would be…”awesome.”
If life were a video game, I believe this would be called “DLC,” and in that case, we front-line divers would be very happy to pay for it.
It’s one DLC pack.
In the pack is 1 new Exosuit which features a chainsaw left arm that slashes horizontally in front of the Exo-suit. The animation should have a 2 or 3 second cool down—slow hydraulic reset. This arm has no ability to damage heavily armored enemies; however, at the cost of 8 research points, it can be upgraded to a laser-sword which can easily cut heavily armored enemies. The cooldown does not improve. The right arm of this exosuit should be an autocannon that can damage medium armored enemies. 2 research points can upgrade its rate-of-fire, and 3 more can double its magazine.
Also in the pack is a new Exosuit Specialist set of apparel.
Also in the pack is a new sidearm option which is purely melee: a chainsaw sword. It is swung horizontally in front of diver, the same as the Exo suit version. It has longer range than a bayonet, and it cuts in an arc, but does similar damage to a bayonet. It can be upgraded for 2 research points with carbon teeth to be able to significantly damage [but not outright kill] medium armored enemies. Its attacks are a bit slow because it is heavy; however, it can be upgraded with 3 research points to a more lightweight construction, thus improving a Helldiver’s ability to slash slash slash.
Also in the pack is a new Melee Specialist set of apparel.
Also in the pack is a new motorcycle with sidecar. It should be similarly upgradable to the existing motorcycle with sidecar; however, this motorcycle’s sidecar is equipped with an automatic grenade launcher. It can be upgraded for 2 research points to increase the magazine, and further upgraded with 3 research points to add incendiary damage to the grenades.
Give us this DLC, and we shall want nothing else.

(In fact they were always your ideas. I simply dove too many times into Illuminate territory, and have gained the ability to read your mind).
