Helldivers 2’s new bad weather patch quietly adds huge AT-AT-like deathbots

It’s update day for Helldivers 2, and – as detailed in its patch notes – the flagship new addition is terrible, awful weather befitting of battling across planetary hellscapes. However – as not detailed in its patch notes – it’s apparently sneakily added a huge AT-AT-like robot enemy too.

Starting with the stuff developer Arrowhead Game Studios isn’t being shy about, today’s Helldivers 2 patch – officially known as update 01.000.200 – introduced a couple of new weather hazards in the form of blizzards and sandstorms. And no, there’s not much to say about these other than, maybe, good luck out there.

Angry planetary weather arrives alongside a level cap increase from 50 to 150, and there’s an extensive bit of gameplay balancing too. This touches on everything from mission structure – Destroy Command Bunkers now has more objectives because it was “too easy” previously, for instance – to weapon tweaks and enemy balancing, and you’ll find full patch notes below.
