Helldivers 2 players discover the origin of a bug after months of frustration

Published

The Helldivers 2 community has finally found the cause of a bug that has plagued the game since launch.

For months, Helldivers 2 players have been tearing their hair out over an issue that caused characters to randomly stop sprinting. Without knowing the cause, fans were baffled as to what exactly was happening.

However, a Helldivers 2 player finally discovered the source of the bug and shared his findings on the game’s subreddit. Further testing by other users suggests that the Redditor has indeed unlocked a months-long mystery.

In his post, the Redditor mentions his extensive experience in software development and shares his thoughts on the number of patches Helldivers 2 has received.

The big reveal, however, doesn’t come until the end of the post, where he reveals the cause of the sprint bug.

Enter a game with a friend, injure yourself so that you only have a quarter life left. Have your friend start sprinting then use a STEM. Yes, if you use a STIM while someone is sprinting it will prevent them from sprinting “.

Given how long this issue has terrorized the Helldivers community, this comment immediately caught the attention of players, prompting them to conduct their own testing.

The results of these experiments appear to support the theory, with one user reporting: “ I didn’t believe it at first, because he has been harassing me since day one. After seeing this post I went into games and gave it a try. Sure enough, every time I used a stim, my allies slowed down “.

Others seem to have managed to clarify the issue even further, with another Helldivers 2 fan commenting: “ Two players on PC didn’t slow down a player sprinting with a controller, but slowed them down when switching to keyboard and mouse “.

This comment was accompanied by a short video clip showing how the keyboard player was affected, but not the controller player.

While not all of these tests are official, the results suggest that the use of STIMs is somehow the cause of the sprinting bug in Helldivers 2.
