Helldivers 2 Releases Patch Notes for Latest Update


  • Arrowhead games Studios releases update 1.000.304 for Helldivers 2, fixing game crashes and bugs.
  • The patch addresses crashes and various bugs, but no weapon or gameplay balance updates this time around.
  • Following the controversy, this update also allows for optional PSN account linkage through the in-game settings.

Arrowhead games Studios releases update 1.000.304 for Helldivers 2, which makes a number of big fixes to ongoing bugs and game crashes. It’s has been a rollercoaster ride for Helldivers 2 since it launched back in February. The online co-op shooter experienced unprecedented sales, which, in turn, caused the game’s servers to break down, preventing players from logging in or causing errors during gameplay. Thankfully, Arrowhead managed to stabilize the game and since then, it has continued to grow, becoming Sony’s fastest selling PlayStation game ever.

However, even with its continued popularity, Helldivers 2 hit another bump in the road due to a PSN Account controversy, where Sony intended to implement a system that required PC players to make and link to a PlayStation Network account. The news was not received well by players, who systematically review bombed the title on Steam, ultimately forcing Sony to back down, though Helldivers 2 was delisted in well over 150 countries with no resolution in sight. Still, Arrowhead continues updating the game, first with a new Warbond and now with a brand-new update.


Helldivers 2 Hits Impressive Sales Milestone

The smash hit live-service game Helldivers 2 reveals that it is experiencing exceptionally high sales numbers just a few months after launch.

The latest update for Helldivers 2 focuses on the remaining game crashes players have been running into recently. Game crashes have been a common problem for Helldivers 2 since the game launched, including a strange one caused by players throwing too many snowballs while in a game. In this case, the trio of fixes address crashes that can happen when players load in to their ship, examine their loadout, or could be triggered right after the host left the room after a player had joined. It’s unknown how rare these moments were, but either way, players no longer need to worry about them.

In addition to game crashes, this update addressed a handful of bugs as well. In terms of gameplay, the Airburst proximity explosion has been adjusted so that it is only triggered by enemies and other Helldivers in the vicinity. The AR-61 Tenderizer had a bug which gave it the wrong color scheme in some instances, which has since been fixed within this patch. Considering all of the recent Helldivers 2 controversy, this update has added an optional setting for players who do want to link their PSN Accounts found within the in-game settings.

For better or worse, Arrowhead has made plenty of balance updates with many of these patches, something which has left most in the community divided on. While some appreciate Arrowhead attempting to keep the game fair, others have questioned the need for so many balance updates when the game is strictly a cooperative experience. In fact, Arrowhead CEO Johan Pilestedt responded to a player saying the game has become unfun due to the constant changes, agreeing that the studio has gone a bit too far in some areas and in some cases, removing fun elements the community has discovered organically.
