Helldivers 2 Patch 1.000.10 Aims for Matchmaking, Computer Black Screen, and Settings to Increase Server Capacity

Helldivers 2 Patch 1,000.10 has begun rolling out on Steam and PS5, which developer Arrowhead hopes will address some of the many issues fans have been experiencing over the past week.

The most important of them are matchmaking problems and server problems, in addition to the computer black screen problem. Arrowhead CEO Johan Bilstedt wrote on

In addition to the issues mentioned above, the Helldivers 2 patch also addresses Ragdoll Momentum, adjusts the difficulty of extracting civilian quests that have been killing players, and implements an automatic retry mechanism for quick play.

Helldivers 2 has been a huge success since its release, even sparking renewed interest in Starship Troopers, the film from which it took a great deal of inspiration. We praised it in our review as “a rare modern multiplayer game that does almost everything right.” Over the weekend, it surpassed the Steam concurrent record set by Grand Theft Auto 5 despite a server cap meant to address stability issues.

But despite a great welcome among fans, Helldivers 2 has been dogged by a “servers at capacity” issue among other issues since launch, with some fans refusing to log out to ensure they keep their place. It was bad enough that Pilestedt warned against purchasing the game until its issues were fully resolved.

In the meantime, you can read the full patch notes below. For more information, check out our list of the best weapon levels in Helldivers 2 and our list of Terminids and Automatons enemies.
