Despite having smaller patches, players have still been facing such problems consistently. The developers have even tried to limit the number of concurrent players on their server to only 450,000. However, due to the game’s rising popularity, fans have been waiting in the server queue to try and log in.

Server Stability Fix

In an attempt to try and stabilize Helldivers 2, Arrowhead Games have released a patch, titled 01.000.009, which is said to fix all these problems. Since the patch has just been released at the time of writing, its effectiveness is yet to be confirmed. Regardless of how the update performs, players are patiently waiting for the developers to fix the stability issues plaguing an otherwise amazing game.

Difficulty Tweaks

Other than the server fixes, this patch also contains updates to the game’s difficulty. Players have been complaining that the highest difficulties in the game, which are Suicide, Impossible and Helldive, aren’t as challenging as they should be. They requested the devs to up the adversity in these levels.

In response to these requests, Arrowhead Games has adjusted the difficulty for these levels and has increased the challenge for the players. Additionally, they have made the Eradicate Missions more difficult to complete as well. The time limit for the missions has been increased to adjust to these tweaks. That means players will have more time to complete the missions with increased difficulty.

The Defend Community Event has been on the other side of this argument saying that enemies in those missions have been giving players a hard time. Players have been unable to hold off the robots while evacuating civilians to safety. The patch will make this mission a bit easier for the players.

Possible New Faction

Some reports claim that the game may add a new faction from the Helldivers Universe in the future. There has been no announcement if the latest patch will have this update, but it seems likely that sometime in the future, it will be added.
