Helldivers 2 Update Patch Notes 01.000.201 Apr 3

Here are all the details on update patch 01.000.201 for Helldivers 2 on both Steam PC and PlayStation 5 on April 3

Just a tiny hotfix on April 3, 2024, for Helldivers 2. Seems like the problem was egregious enough that a hotfix had to be issued right quick.

Read more further down below, to find out about issues that have NOT been resolved yet. Check out the rest of our guides for potential fixes on some of them, if you continue to be denied your right to deliver democracy.


UPDATE 2–New Premium Warbond announced:

Helldivers 2 New Democratic Detonation Premium Warbond


UPDATE–An hour after the hotfix, the following proclamation was also made:

By Presidential Decree, the President of Super Earth has officially recognized this day as Malevelon Creek Memorial Day. This week, in remembrance, all Helldivers will be issued a special commemorative cape, so they may carry the memory of their fallen companions into battle.

Please be patient while this cape is delivered to your Destroyer, and wear it with pride!
