Helldivers 2 update 1.000.103 patch notes: Fixes for patrol spawns and exosuits

Exosuits no longer destroy themselves when firing missiles

Players of Helldivers 2 went through a lot of trouble to unlock the EXO-45 Patriot Exosuit as a new stratagem for themselves by defending a besieged factory world. However, the machine exhibited one crucial flaw – it tended to destroy itself when firing off a missile during a turning maneuver. Slightly inconvenient, it has to be said. Luckily, Patch 1.000.103 for Helldivers 2 is fixing this particular bug alongside the fact that the mech’s melee functionality ceased working after it got damaged. Altogether, the defenders of space democracy should find the exosuits much more capable and reliable in combat now.

Another important bugfix made in this update relates to enemy patrols: These should no longer spawn right on unwitting players, falling upon them without the ability to prepare themselves.

Exosuits should work better after Patch 1.000.103.

In terms of balancing, the developers reduced the spawn rate of planetary hazards, making them less of a common threat. Additionally, meteor showers and volcanic activity have been nerfed.
