The Helldivers 2 patch 01.000.202 finally fixes the myriad crashes that have been plaguing the game, and our subsequent fights for democracy and Super Earth no less. So if you’ve been waiting to dive back in until there’s no fear of lost progress due to a crash, now’s the time to give the galaxy a democracy-imbued shake down.

We’ve been waiting on this Helldivers 2 patch for a while. Update 01.000.202 finally gives us some fixes for those pesky Helldivers 2 crashes we’ve been inundated by, meaning your deployments in the live service co-op game should go a lot smoother. Minus the killer bugs, of course.

The crashes aren’t all though, as Arrowhead explains how it’s changed UI for weapons that do explosive damage too.

“We have updated the stats UI for weapons to take into account any explosive damage done by them,” Arrowhead writes. “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.”
