Helldivers 2 PS5 PlayStation

Intent on getting back to the business of spreading Democracy and Liberty after a wild IRL ride, Helldivers 2 developer Arrowhead has deployed another patch. Primarily focused on quashing bugs, it looks like there was an issue with how DOT (damage over time) was being handled, and the troublesome R-9 Eruptor should (hopefully) be less lethal to friends.

The full patch notes can be perused on Steam. Other highlights include alleged fixes to misaligned scopes while aiming in first-person and many fixes for the game's Social Menu. Hopefully, online friends' statuses will now be displayed appropriately, and we'll properly be able to target specific Automaton weak points.

On the community side, Operation Clean Up continues apace as further proof that there's something special about this game. Driven entirely by fans, the aim is to overturn the many thousands of negative reviews placed in response to Sony's controversial decision to implement mandatory PSN linking for PC players. A Major Order has even been mocked up, parroting Arrowhead's UI, and if there's one thing we've learned in recent days, there appears to be nothing in the galaxy capable of standing against the might of the Helldivers.

Will you overturn your negative Steam review and restore Helldivers 2 to its rightful, glorious status? How have your operations been faring? Are you still fighting the good fight? Let us know in the comments section below.
