Helldivers 2 servers are struggling (again) under the weight of all those mechs

By FileTrekker a month ago, last updated a month ago

Mechs have finally dropped in Helldivers 2, meaning players can finally blast their way across alien worlds, save in the comfort of their own personally armoured walking battle tank, but you might have a little bit a wait before you get to try one out for yourself, as the game's servers are once again struggling under the demand the new update has brought with it.

Arrowhead noted on Discord that they were "aware of an issue with players not being able to get into the game," adding that the issues began "when the Combat Walkers became available. People rushed to get it and it overwhelmed our backend. We are working to fix it as soon as we can. We want you to enjoy the Mech as soon as possible. Thanks for your patience!"  

According to the developers, the issue is intermittent, so you might still get in by sheer luck, although I've not had much success giving it a shot over the last 20-30 minutes before publishing. Instead, many players (including yours truly) are being met with "failed to connect" error messages.

There's no word yet on when the issues might be resolved, but hopefully, the team is working as hard as they can to resolve them—and on a Friday, no less. Poor guys.
