How to Fix Bile Spewers Helldivers 2 Not Working

Bile Spewers, those hulking Terminid menaces, can be a real pain in Helldivers 2. Not only do they spew deadly acid, but they’re also currently experiencing a bug that makes them freeze mid-fight. Don’t worry, fellow Helldiver, we’ve got your back!

The Problem

Bile Spewers are supposed to be relentless attackers, but a bug causes them to stop moving and attacking after a while. This can be frustrating, especially if you’re trying to complete objectives or farm for resources.

Fixes & Workarounds

While a permanent fix awaits a developer patch, these tricks can help you deal with bugged Bile Spewers:

1. Disable Crossplay:

Multiplayer issues sometimes affect enemy behavior. Try disabling Crossplay (Options > Gameplay > Crossplay) to see if it improves things. Note that some players report lag and connection issues with Crossplay off, so experiment to find what works best for you.

2. Update Audio Drivers & Disable Steam Input:

Outdated audio drivers can sometimes cause in-game glitches. Go to Device Manager, find your audio device, right-click, select Update Driver, and follow the prompts.

To disable Steam Input, Right-click Helldivers 2 in your Steam library, choose Properties, go to the Controller tab, and switch Disable Steam Input to On.

3. Bring the Big Guns (and Grenades):

Bile Spewers are tough, so pack a punch. The Anti-Material rifle pierces armor, while Impact Grenades pack a serious wallop. Use your Jump Pack to dodge their acid, flank them, and unleash hellfire.

4. Prioritize Objectives & Avoid:

Bile Spewers aren’t always mission-critical. Focus on capturing points, destroying targets, or rescuing survivors. Use your mobility and stealth to evade them and move on to your goals.

5. Wait for the Patch:

The developers are aware of the issue and are working on a fix. Stay updated on the official forum or Steam community for patch news. You can also report any other bugs you encounter and get help from other players or the support team.


These workarounds may not be perfect, but they can help you manage bugged Bile Spewers until a permanent fix arrives. Good luck, Helldiver, and keep fighting the good fight!
