The FAF-14 Spear is a stratagem that players can unlock only after reaching level 20 in the Helldivers sequel.

Despite its long cooldown and the high risk associated with its use against Automatons, the community has long valued it as a favorite throwing weapon.

However, a bug prevented targets from being locked, and this issue persisted for months before being fixed with update 1,000,400, released on June 18.

The excitement around fixing the Spear’s aiming issues didn’t last long. A few days after the patch rolled out, players began reporting crashing errors seemingly caused by the gear in the stratagem in question.

Several Helldivers 2 players on PC wrote in a Reddit thread that the Spear had suddenly started causing “crashes to the office”. Others claimed to have used the ploy several times without experiencing any major problems.

Regardless, Arrowhead developers are well aware of the crashes and are working on a solution.

This was confirmed by another post on Reddit featuring a screenshot from Discord, where Community Manager Thomas Petersson, aka Twinbeard, confirmed: “Yes, there are Spear-related crashes at the moment. We are working on it!”

Needless to say, this exacerbated the community’s frustrations, especially since the extended wait between patch releases was supposed to ensure more meaningful updates.

A comment in the thread asks: “Didn’t they take a month and a bit more to do the most recent major patch, and we basically had similar quality to the weekly patches…?”

Another person wondered: “Seriously, how much longer? Are we in free Alpha testing or something?”

Arrowhead hasn’t said when players can expect the Spear’s latest glitch to be resolved.
