Helldivers 2 players get mixed signals around the Eruptor nerf as one dev calls the changes unintended and another says it’s still “absolutely viable”

Helldivers 2 players are getting mixed signals from developers after a recent patch indirectly nerfed a fan-favorite primary weapon. 

The R-36 Eruptor was added to Helldivers 2 in the Democratic Demolition Warbond, serving as a bulky marksman rifle that shoots explosive rounds, handy for clearing bug nests and bot fabricators. However, developer Arrowhead Studios recently removed explosive shrapnel from the game to stop players from randomly one-shotting themselves or teammates with the Eruptor, a decision that’s nerfed the weapon’s damage output too.
