Helldivers 2 Patch 1.000.402 Detailed

Helldivers 2 today just got a new patch that fixed various crash issues when playing the game. The update 1.000.402 patch fixes some of the major crashes like when opening the social menu when the player has more than 100 friends, crashes when minimizing the game from fullscreen mode, and a rare crash that occurs after picking up any sort of equipment. The prior update, patch 1.000.400, involved a ton of balancing over fixing patches.
