helldivers 2 ex-45 patriot exosuit

Arrowhead Game Studios has released a new patch for Helldivers 2, addressing issues with the recently introduced EXO-45 Patriot exosuit and Planetary Hazards. The latter has seen some changes to its spawn rates, and players should see less of them during missions.

The Meteor Shower now has slightly less damage and velocity, reduced explosion radius and a minor color change to make it easier to see. Volcanic Activity has also seen nerfs to its explosion radius and rock velocity, while enemy patrols suddenly spawning on players should occur less.

As for the Exosuit, it now retains its melee abilities when damaged and will no longer blow up if you fire a missile while turning. There are also the usual crash fixes, including those that occur when joining an ongoing mission, idling on the title screen, changing the voiceover language or using a Stim inside of the exosuit while having a grenade out.

Check out the rest of the patch notes, alongside known issues, below. Helldivers 2 is out now on PS5 and PC and is estimated to have sold over eight million copies.
