Helldivers 2 Update 1.000.202 Drops With Stability Fixes But No New Content

After the end of the major in-game event in Helldivers 2, the developers have released update 1.000.202 for PC and PS5.

Patch 01.000.202 for Helldivers 2 brings a host of updates and fixes aimed at improving stability and enhancing gameplay mechanics. Notable changes include adjustments to the stats UI for weapons, particularly weapons utilizing explosive projectiles like the PLAS-1 Scorcher, ensuring a fair representation of their damage output. Additionally, various crash fixes have been implemented to address issues occurring during mission deployment, extraction, and gameplay, particularly those related to deploying support weapons and using heat-based weaponry.

Furthermore, fixes have been applied to address hang-ups in the social menu and prevent players from being locked in place when picking up Medals and Super Credits. However, several known issues persist, including issues with friend invites and cross-play functionality, delays in Medals and Super Credits payouts, and inconsistencies with certain weapons’ behavior and targeting mechanics. These issues are being actively addressed by the development team, and ongoing efforts are being made to identify and resolve any additional issues encountered by players.
