Helldivers 2 Latest Update Information

Helldivers 2 Latest Update Information for 2024.


We recently had a major patch for Helldivers 2, and with it came the first wave of nerfs and buffs to the balance. We've been back in the normal patch rotation for a week now as the game settles into a balanced state.

Patch 1.000.102 took a big swing at the enemy balance of the game, while today's update has a focus on yet more balance, while taking on some specific issues with the EXO-45.

Helldivers 2 Patch 1.000.103 is available to download now on Steam, and Ps5. You can check all previous Helldivers 2 patches here.

Helldivers 2 Patch 01.000.303

 Overview

Crashes

  •  Fix for common crash related to damage over time use
  • Fix for very common crash related to hot joining quickplay session that becomes full
  • This, unfortunately, means that hot joining players won't show up in the recent players list until they drop down to the planet, or not at all if they leave from the loadout.

Helldivers 2 Latest Update Patch 01.000.302

Patch 01.000.302 TLDR

  • Some weapon and enemy balancing
  • Crash fixes
  • Social Menu issues
  • DoT damage fix
  • Misaligned scopes fix
  • General fixes and improvements

Balancing

Primary, Secondary, & Support Weapons

  • R-9 Eruptor
    • Increased explosion damage by 40 and removed shrapnel from the explosion
    • This is to avoid cases in which players would randomly one-shot themselves or their teammates in a huge radius around the explosion

Enemies

  • Increased Shrieker sight and hearing range slightly.
  • Increased Gunship hearing range slightly.

Gameplay

  • We have fixed issues with the way Damage-over-time effects were being applied. This should fix issues where only the network session owner could apply them, and other cases where they would be applied inconsistently.
  • Firing the Punisher Plasma while wearing a shield backpack no longer damages the Helldiver
  • Fixed issues with some weapon scopes not being aligned in First-Person-View.
  • The sound when stimming no longer plays while being interrupted
  • Major orders with the “Kill task” now track score correctly. Previously it counted the entire squad’s kills once for each player, meaning it would multiply the score by the number of people on the mission; this is now amended.
  • Helldivers can no longer land on tall rocks in the “Horde Defend Missions”
  • Helldivers can no longer land on top of bug pillars in Deactivate Terminid Control System missions
  • Fix for the reinforce stratagem not being present if a Helldiver leaves the session before readying up and then hot joining the active session
