Helldivers 2 Patch 1.000.11 Introduces Auto-Kick Feature for AFK Players and More

A new Helldivers 2 patch is now live on PC and PlayStation 5, addressing a major issue that made the game’s current server woes even worse.

Patch 1.000.11 introduces a variety of fixes to the game, such as fixes for multiple crashing issues, inability to select online missions in Galactic War Map, issues with GameGuard and Windows firewall, and other issues. Most importantly, the patch introduces an auto-kick feature that kicks players back to the title screen if they remain idle for over 15 minutes. This is an extremely welcome feature, as players squatting in the server prevented other players from logging into the game.

While Arrowhead may have addressed the AFK players’ situation, it will take more time and effort to fix Helldivers 2’s server issues. Earlier this week, Game Director Johan Pilestedt commented on the issues, saying that fixing these issues involves a lot of work to optimize the backend code and not just buying more servers.

Helldivers 2 is now available on PC and PlayStation 5 worldwide. You can learn more about the game by checking out Ule’s review.

Helldivers 2 is broken at launch. That much is almost unquestionable. The game has many high highs and also abysmally low lows. While I can recommend it for players who are seeking a good time due to the physics and the wacky situations a group of players can find themselves in at lower difficulties, it also is a tough recommendation for players seeking thrills with challenging yet fair content. That may change in the future if the developers can fix all the bugs and connection problems.
