We prove that second order Hamiltonian systems $-\ddot{u} = V_{u}(t,u)$ with a potential $V\colon \mathbb{R} \times \mathbb{R} ^N\to \mathbb{R}$ of class $C^1$, periodic in time and superquadratic at infinity with respect to the space variable have subharmonic solutions. Our intention is to generalise a result on subharmonics for Hamiltonian systems with a potential satisfying the global Ambrosetti-Rabinowitz condition from [14]. Indeed, we weaken the latter condition in a neighbourhood of $0\in \mathbb{R} ^N$. We will also discuss when subharmonics pass to a nontrivial homoclinic orbit.
