Helldivers 2 Will Grant 50% More XP This Weekend to Combat Reward Payout Issues 1

Helldivers 2 is proving to be pretty damn popular right now, and we imagine it'll be seeing plenty of activity this weekend — but developer Arrowhead has just given fans even more incentive to hop in.

There are still one or two issues taking the shine off the game, not least of which is a bug preventing players from being issued their earned rewards after missions. Of course, Arrowhead is fully aware of this, and while it works on sorting this out with a proper fix, it's giving everyone the chance to earn more XP over the next few days:

"We're aware of a problem that has caused some player rewards to not pay out properly at the end of missions," the statement reads. "We are working on a fix for this, but in the meantime, we want to try to alleviate the impact as we head into the weekend. Therefore, from now until the end of this Sunday, February 18th (CET), the game will grant all players XP and Requisition at a 50% multiplier on top of your base mission score."

So, if you're planning on pushing back the threats to Super Earth supremacy this weekend, you'll get an extra 50 per cent XP and Requisition for your troubles. You'll know you're getting this bonus because you will see a Game Master Effect named 'Accounting Corrections' on the hub ship.

Obviously this doesn't solve the main problem, but it's a nice gesture all the same. We expect the game's issues will be addressed fairly quickly; it's already had numerous patches since launch, and the developer seems determined to get everything straight.
