Helldivers 2 has been plagued with an infinite drop-in glitch for some time now that prevents players from beginning missions. Instead, players get stuck on the screen with the pod launching from their ship as it travels to the planet. At last, the latest 01.000.405 hotfix update has addressed and fixed it and players can serve Liber-tea without issue now.

Here are the full Helldivers 2 01.000.405 update patch notes.
