Helldivers 2 Patch 01.000.203 Fixes Ground Breaker Armor, Sorts Out Crashes, and More

Helldivers 2 developer Arrowhead has released yet another update for the PlayStation 5 and PC third-person co-op shooter, this time patch 01.000.203.

This update includes fixes to armor passives as well as various improvements to stability, Arrowhead said in the patch notes, below.

Of most interest is a fix for the CE-27 Ground Breaker medium armor, which now has the Engineer Kit passive as previously advertised. Ground Breaker was added to Helldivers 2 as part of the recently released Premium Warbond, Democratic Detonation, and players soon discovered it had the wrong passive attached.

Elsewhere, the update fixes a number of crashes and a troubling issue that caused different damage to be dealt to enemies between PC and console players. And Arrowhead has updated its helpful ‘known issues’ list to include a fix for the Superior Packing Methodology ship module, also added last week. This useful new ship upgrade makes resupply boxes refill support weapons with the maximum number of carriable magazines, so hopefully a fix is due soon.

Helldivers 2 has become one of the surprise hits of 2024 since launching in February, topping the charts on Steam and reportedly selling around three million copies. According to at least one analyst, it’s still growing. Check out IGN’s Helldivers 2 review to find out why it’s going down so well.
