Helldivers 2 Update Patch Notes 01.000.203 Apr 16

Here are all the details on update patch 01.000.203 for Helldivers 2 on both Steam PC and PlayStation 5 on April 16

After last week’s Helldivers 2 patch, yet another new issue arose with the ship module upgrade Superior Packing Methodology failing to work as advertised. Also the CE-27 Ground Breaker armor had its Engineering Kit passive swapped for the Servo-Assisted passive. While the latter has been addressed in this patch, the Superior Packing Methodology upgrade still does not function correctly.

Those issues with cross-platform friends and cross-play invites persist as well, we’re sorry to report.

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.
