Helldivers 2 Update 1.203 Released Today, Patch Notes and Known Issues Listed

Arrowhead has released a brand new update 1.203 for Helldivers 2 that brings several improvements to the game.

Helldivers 2 received Patch 01.000.203 today to improve the gameplay experience. The update includes various enhancements and bug fixes aimed at refining the game. Some of the issues addressed by this update are rectifying discrepancies in armor passives and bolstering overall stability within the game environment. The CE-27 Ground Breaker armor now incorporates the Engineer Kit passive feature as initially advertised, which makes the gameplay more balanced and immersive.
