Helldivers 2 artwork for the explosive crossbow primary weapon

[Update]: A brand new hotfix has just been released. As expected, it's a whole lot of fixes for the recent crashes!

It's not even been a week since the last batch of content arrived, and already Helldivers 2 is getting ready for a brand new update. However, unlike the previous update that beefed up the Automatons, the Democratic Detonation Warbond will instead bring with it an assortment of explosive new weaponry for the players to toy around with this April 11th.

You can look forward to seeing an explosive crossbow, a grenade launcher sidearm, two variants of explosively charged rifles, as well as a really mean-looking and armor-piercing grenade! There's also going to be a brand new booster that makes extraction easier, three new armor sets, as well as the usual batch of cosmetics like capes and emotes.

What all of this explosive goodness looks like in action, that you can check out through the trailer below. Have a gander:

Much like the previous Warbonds, the Democratic Detonation will set you back 1000 Super Credits and will remain available indefinitely. So don't worry about missing out on anything if you haven't managed to scrounge up enough credits just yet.

The final thing worth mentioning is that Arrowhead is aware of the recent crashes and is currently working on a fix. So if you're unable to finish every second mission because you get booted right before extraction, there's a good chance this problem will get resolved early next week. I certainly hope so anyway!

Once that happens, or the Democratic Detonation Warbond goes live, I'll make sure to let you know. Until then, have fun blowing up the last refuge of the Automatons!
