Helldivers 2 Patch 1,000.301 improves performance after this week's big balance update

Helldivers 2 Patch 1,000.301 improves performance after this week's big balance update

Helldivers 2 patches are coming thick and fast, this time with a fix for performance issues caused by the previous patch.

After this week's release Patch 01.000.300, which has modified a long list of weapons, gimmicks, and enemies, some Helldivers 2 players have encountered performance issues. Arrowhead later confirmed that there was indeed an issue, and has now released a new patch to address it.

Patch 1,000.301, released today, May 2, is much smaller than the update released earlier this week, but more importantly it makes the promised performance improvements, as well as resolving a number of bugs.

Arrowhead has also updated its helpful “Known Issues” list to give players an idea of ​​what the studio is working to fix. One line of note: “Helldiver may not be able to stand crouching when surrounded by enemies.” And here I was thinking that this is a feature and not a bug!

Yesterday, IGN reported on Arrowhead's plan to tweak Eruptor after a community investigation uncovered a bounce and fragment issue caused by this week's patch. This fix does not appear to have been implemented yet.

  • The game may crash if the host leaves while dead and returns to the same play session.

  • Enemies who bleed do not advance personal commands and court missions.
  • The scopes of some weapons, such as the anti-materiel rifle, are slightly misaligned.
  • Bow weapons sometimes behave inconsistently and sometimes fail.
  • The Spear's targeting is inconsistent, making it difficult to target larger enemies.
  • The trick ray may stick to the enemy but will scatter back to its original location.
  • Explosions don't break your limbs (except when you hit a rock).
  • The area around the Automaton Detector Tower creates blue gimmicks such as Hellbomb that bounce and are repelled when attempted to be summoned near the tower.
