Helldivers 2 finally adds a much-requested AFK kick timer, stopping undemocratic glory hounds from twiddling their thumbs in perpetuity

Helldivers 2 continues to slowly grease the wheels on its war against bloated servers—in the past couple of weeks, I’ve gone from having a broken matchmaking system and an inaccessible game (even on weekday evenings) to something I can reasonably play most nights. Granted, I’m in a UK time zone, so I’ve got a hefty deployment advantage.

One part of the problem is that Helldivers 2 didn’t launch with an AFK kick function, which has been causing its fair share of upset unfortunates faced with long queue times. A certain contingent of the player base has been logging on early, or simply not turning their PCs off overnight—an understandable response to impossible queue times, but also kind of a jerk move for jerks. No longer.
