Helldivers 2 has recently seen a major breakthrough as the dangerous Automatons have been successfully eliminated, leaving only the menacing Terminids as a threat to humanity. In light of this victory, the latest update to Helldivers 2, known as the 01.000.202 patch, has been released. While this update does not introduce new content, it focuses on resolving various issues within the game to enhance overall gameplay experience.

Despite the absence of new content in this patch, players can look forward to the upcoming release of the Helldivers 2 Premium Warbond, which is set to launch later this week.

Helldivers 2 01.000.202 Patch Notes Overview

  • Stability fixes

Gameplay

  • We have updated the stats UI for weapons to take into account any explosive damage done by them. This is to give weapons that do damage with explosive projectiles a more fair representation in the UI. Most notably affected is the PLAS-1 Scorcher.

  • Fixed some crashes that occurred when deploying to mission.
  • Fixed some crashes that occurred during extraction and right after it.

  • Fixed crash which could occur when large volumes of enemies were present.
  • Fixed crash which could occur when the player picked up a snowball.
  • Fixed crash which could occur when completing an objective.

Other Fixes

  • Fixed hang that could occur while navigating the social menu.
  • Picking up Medals and Super Credits will no longer lock the player in place.

Known Issues

These are issues that were either introduced by this patch and are being worked on, or are from a previous version and have not yet been fixed. This list is not exhaustive, and we are continuing to identify issues and create fixes. These are organized by feedback, reports, severity, etc.

Various issues involving friend invites and cross-play:

  • Player name may show up blank on the other player’s friend list.

  • Certain weapons like the Sickle cannot shoot through foliage.
  • Scopes on some weapons such as the Anti-Materiel Rifle are slightly misaligned.
  • Arc weapons sometimes behave inconsistently and sometimes misfire.
  • Spear’s targeting is inconsistent, making it hard to lock-on to larger enemies.
  • Stratagem beam might attach itself to an enemy but it will deploy to its original location.
  • Explosions do not break your limbs (except for when you fly into a rock).
  • Area around Automaton Detector Tower makes blue stratagems such as the hellbomb bounce and be repelled when trying to call them down close to the tower.
