Helldivers 2 is arguably the biggest game of the year so far, but even its developer has admitted it suffers from faults with its servers. This is largely caused by the game’s extreme popularity with hundreds of thousands wanting to play. Because the servers have had to be capped, fans will be relieved to hear that the new Helldivers 2 update 1.000.11 patch notes finally fix the idle players conundrum by kicking them out of the game.

There are more issues with the game that we have guides for how to fix yourself. We have a guide for how to fix the stuck in Drop Pod bug error, and we also have a guide for how to fix the 0 helldivers active bug. Away from bug fixes, we also have guides to simply help you with the game such as how to farm medals fast through five different methods.

While we can guide you towards fixing issues yourself, the good news is that developer Arrowhead has been releasing updates consistently to permanently fix major problems. And one of the biggest problems they’ve fixed in the update 1.000.11 patch notes is players staying idle overnight to avoid having to queue to join the servers again.

Helldivers 2 update 1.000.11 patch notes

Below are the full Helldivers 2 update 1.000.11 patch notes for PS5 and PC:

Fixes:

  • Fixed multiple crashes triggered when joining other players’ ships.
  • Fixed crash triggered when exiting ADS.
  • Fixed crash triggered when players leave a session while bombardments are active.
  • Fixed issue where online missions in Galactic War Map were unselectable.
  • Fixed issue with GameGuard and Steam’s “verify integrity” step.
  • Fixed issue with GameGuard and the Windows firewall.
  • Fixed issue preventing access to Ship Management panel.
  • Fixed issue causing players to get stuck in the defrosting or in the ship intro cinematic
  • Fixed crash triggered when the process of buying Super Credits fails.
  • Fixed crash triggered after consecutive quickplay attempts.
  • Implemented a functionality that will kick players who remain idle for 15 minutes back to the title screen.

All of the above come courtesy of the official patch notes shared on Steam. Although shared on Steam, the update is available for both PS5 and PC. There are lots of necessary improvements listed above, but undoubtedly the best is idle players getting kicked back to the title screen after remaining idle for 15 minutes. Hopefully, this will be enough to thwart what has been a huge problem for the community.

In addition to all of the above fixes, below are known issues that developer Arrowhead is working on fixing:

  • No text is present for the Requisitions and Social Menu on the Player HUD
  • Crash may occur when trying to Match Make on Galactic War Map
  • PS5 players may encounter error code 10003001 on the login screen.
  • Login rate limiting when many are logging in at the same time.
  • Players can become disconnected during play.
  • Rewards and other progress may be delayed or not attributed.
  • Various UI issues may appear when the game interacts with servers.
  • Pick-up of certain objects in-game may cause characters to freeze in place for an extended period of time.
  • Other unknown behaviors may occur.
  • Japanese VO is missing from intro cutscene and Ship TV.
  • Armor values for light/medium/heavy armor do not currently function as intended.
