The latest Helldivers 2 patch 1.000.102 has brought significant changes to the game, particularly in the way the EAT-17 Anti-Tank weapon performs against Chargers. This update comes as a relief to players who have been struggling to take down these formidable Terminid foes. The patch focuses on making the EAT-17 a more viable option for dealing with Chargers, while also adjusting the spawn rates of these enemies in higher difficulty levels.

One of the key changes in the 1.000.102 patch is the reduction of Chargers' head health. This means that headshots now deal more damage to these enemies, making it easier to take them down quickly. The update also includes an undocumented change from the previous patch, which increased the armor penetration ability of less well-placed shots for the EAT-17 and Recoilless Rifle.

In addition to the changes made to Chargers and the EAT-17, the 1.000.102 patch also addresses the spawn rates of Chargers and Bile Titans in higher difficulty levels. The spawn rates for these enemies have been reduced, making it slightly easier for players to manage the battlefield.
