Specific cases where players could get stuck in the Hellpod loading screen should also be fixed, though plenty of other issues remain.

Arrowhead Game Studios has a new hotfix for Helldivers 2, which looks to resolve crashes occurring in specific situations. It also looks to prevent cases where players in the Hellpod loading screen would get stuck.

Some instances where crashes and glitches have been fixed include when dropping into a mission or right after changing your settings. The last update was supposed to fix the latter, but it “didn’t stick the landing.” As a result, the engineer responsible has been understandably assigned to a “Super Earth re-education camp.”

Arrowhead also confirms that the Superior Packing Methodology ship module upgrade was fixed on the server side as of July 1st, so that’s nice. Plenty of known issues exist, like deploying mines sometimes going invisible, Arc weapons misfiring, Reinforcement not being available for players who join a game in progress, and the Bile Titan not taking damage to its thick skull. Expect more fixes in the coming weeks.

Helldivers 2 is available for PS5 and PC. Check out our review here.

Patch 01.000.404

Overview

  • This hotfix aims to resolve crashes and to reduce the number of people stuck in the hellpod drop-in loading screen.

Fixes

  • Fixed the ‘Superior Packing Methodology’ ship module upgrade (technically this was fixed on the server side and has been working since July 1st).
  • Fixed crashes and glitches occurring when dropping into a mission.
  • Fixed instances of players becoming stuck in the hellpod loading screen.
  • Fixed a crash that occurs after changing settings (this should be fixed for real this time, the last fix didn’t stick the landing and we have sent the responsible engineer to a Super Earth re-education camp).
