Despite the high user interest, Helldivers 2 does not have the best ratings. At the time of writing the news, the shooter has a "mixed" rating on Steam — it has received over 10.6 thousand reviews, of which 69% are positive. They scold the game mainly for bugs and crashes.

The developers from Arrowhead studio have already apologized to the players and released a patch that should fix the most critical problems.
