Dark Fluid Mission Bugged In Helldivers 2

  • Infinite Spawns:  Players encounter continuous bug breaches near their landing zone, leading them to face an unending stream of enemies until the mission ends.

  • Mission Tallying Issues: Even after successfully completing the mission, the score is not tallied correctly; instead, it shows you are defeated.
  • High Regeneration Rate: The mission’s liberation decay rate is 10% per hour, much higher than usual, making it harder for players to progress.

However, these bugs have not been officially addressed by Arrowhead Game Studios. Here are some solutions that players can try to resolve;

  • To manage the continuous bug breaches, players suggest using area-of-effect (AoE) stratagems like the Orbital Railcannon Strike or Incendiary Bombs to quickly clear large groups of enemies.
  • Players can also use Shield Generators to push back enemies and Smoke Grenades to obscure the shrieker’s vision, making survival easier until extraction.
  • To avoid the high regeneration rate, players can try to complete the mission as soon as possible before the given time limit.

Players can also check the discussion forms and contact the support team to fix the issues. Meanwhile, developers might soon release the official fixes for these bugs.
