Helldivers 2 Premium Warbonds

Arrowhead today released the Helldivers 2 patch 1.000.404 that fixes crashes and resolves the issue when players are stuck in the hellpod drop-in loading screen, especially a crash fix when players change settings of the game.

Helldivers 2 Overview of Patch 1.000.404

The patch focuses more on fixing some existing crashing issues that players experience. Here is the full patch 1.000.404 notes below:


  • Fixed the ‘Superior Packing Methodology’ ship module upgrade (technically this was fixed on the server side and has been working since July 1st).
  • Fixed crashes and glitches occurring when dropping into a mission.
  • Fixed instances of players becoming stuck in the hellpod loading screen.
  • Fixed a crash that occurs after changing settings (this should be fixed for real this time, the last fix didn’t stick the landing and we have sent the responsible engineer to a Super Earth re-education camp).
