Helldivers 2 - Viper Commandos_01

A new patch is available for Arrowhead Game Studios’ Helldivers 2, and while not as extensive as the last, it still offers some much-needed fixes. It includes fixing a crash that could occur when aiming the FAF-14 Spear, at long last making it a viable option. Another crash when players with different Hellpod patterns left during the launch cutscenes has also been fixed.

As for the other fixes, the Plasma Punisher can now finally shoot outside the SH-32 Shield Generator Pack and the FX-12 Shield Generator. Furthermore, the Quasar Cannon will now correctly reflect the conditions in hot and cold environments with its heat. The Peak Physique armor passive should also affect weapon ergonomics.

It’s also worth noting that Japanese voice-overs are available globally – a nice quality-of-life feature. Check out the full patch notes below. Helldivers 2 is available for PC and PS5, selling over 12 million units. You can read our review here.
