Helldivers 2 Patch 1.000.104 notes fix Arc & Tesla crashes

Issues that were causing the Arc weapons and Tesla Tower stratagem to crash Helldivers 2 have been fixed in this latest update.

Helldivers 2 has itself another patch this week, and it’s a quick fix for Arc weapons and the Tesla stratagem. Since the arrival of the recent DLC weapons pack brought in a new ARC-12 Blitzer shotgun, it turned out that flinging all that lightning around was crashing the game. That apparently extended to the Arc Thrower weapon and the Tesla Tower stratagem as well. As of Helldivers 2 Patch 1.000.104, that issue is fixed and you should be able to fry bugs and bots in peace.

Arrowhead Game Studios released Helldivers 2 Patch 1.000.104 and its short-but-sweet accompanying patch notes this week. This one is all about fixing some issues that came to light with the launch of the Cutting Edge Warbond pack that contained the ARC-12 Blitzer. Turns out when four Helldivers 2 are shooting cone lightning in every given direction, it could crash the game, and that’s no good for democracy. Thankfully, Arrowhead has reportedly fixed this issue, not just for the Blitzer, but also the Arc Thrower weapon and Tesla Tower stratagem. That’s really all there is to it. You can see for yourself below:


Whats been done in this patch:

          It was a weak joke saying "Sonos arc" and tesla are separate tech news topics. Took me awhile to figure out what they were implying.

            I thought it was about crashes on Intel Arc and NVIDIA Tesla GPUs

        Headline clearly says HD2 patch fixes the arc thrower, which then arced out of a player's PC into the street causing a Tesla crash.

      Be nice if they could figure out launch crash issues. Played fine for the last few weeks, up thru last Friday night, the next day the game doesn’t run at all. Can’t even make it to the first screen before crashing back to desktop. Like six or seven times in a row. Verified Steam files, still nothing. Rebooted, nothing. Rebooted again, finally worked. Really weird stuff.
      I’m using an AMD GPU with the newest driver. Not sure if that’s part of the issue or what. But none of the friends I was playing with have these issues. And they are all using an Nvidia GPU.
