New Helldivers 2 Update Drops With Patch Notes

Update version 1.000.203 has come to Helldivers 2.

Arrowhead Studios has today released the newest update for Helldivers 2 across PlayStation 5 and PC. In recent weeks, there has been a lot of wild activity in Helldivers 2 that has kept players sucked in. At one point, fans were able to completely wipe out the Automatons faction, which led to their return only mere days later. Now, as a way of ensuring that players stay engaged, this new patch has been let loose, although it's mainly addressed at bug fixes. 

As a whole, patch 1.000.203 for Helldivers 2 isn't that extensive. Arrowhead has primarily looked to solve numerous different issues that have led to in-game crashes for players on both PS5 and PC. Beyond this, there have been alterations made to the CE-27 Ground Breaker armor that incorporates a passive that was previously expected. All of these changes have been made in addition to some small others associated with stability.
