Helldivers 2’s devs are looking into enemy spawn rates and making superior packing work as intended again

While Helldivers 2‘s last big patch has gone down pretty well, it also seems to have created a fresh set of issues for Arrowhead to investigate. To its credit, the studio is now looking into two of the biggest problems players are currently reporting, though the list does look to be getting longer day by day.

If you’re out of the loop, one of the things some folks have been reporting as they’ve gone about saving and then killing kids is that the changes the patch made to how enemies spawn – by lessening the amount of heavy units that get flung at people in favour of more small foes – have actually made things more difficult. Arrowhead’s now confirmed it is looking into that, but the situation apparently isn’t as straighforward as it might seem.

In a post on the game’s Discord server, community manager Twinbeard has shared an update on the studio’s efforts to investigate those reports that the tweaks haven’t made for less folks getting helplessly pinned down at higher difficulties. “For those of you who are asking about patrols/enemy presence, this is an intricate one,” he wrote, “Instead of me trying to get into the nitty gritty details, probably failing miserably, I think we should try to supply a proper explanation on how it works, what we’ve changed and how we want it to play in regards to enemy presence overall.”
