The Division 2

Recommended Posts

Personally, I’m finding it difficult to get enthused about going further into the world tiers in this. Whilst it’s great they’ve got lots of end game content, for me there’s little reason to do it with the lack of build diversity.

 

For example, I was looking forward to the point in the game when skills became viable, but it seems that just doesn’t happen. It’s purely a personal thing, but I don’t see the point of all this extra difficulty existing if they haven’t really balanced the game for it yet. What’s the point in having the whole triumvirate of stats if offence is the only course of action?

That is very true, at the moment you just need to build for damage to power through the endgame stuff. I suspect that will change overtime once Massive suss it out.

 

Re: World Tiers. Is it best to just keep pushing through them as soon as you hit the GS Stronghold threshold?

 

It seems like there's a load of new side missions, ?'s and invaded control points and I don't won't to miss anything

Great fun trying to clear a lvl 4 control point with the Hitcher, Banjaxed and Hardbattle last night. Followed by a few bounties. Loved the nightime Thunderstorm we got caught in during one firefight. All rain, fog, glows from various explosions, as we dodged from cover to cover with minimum visibility. This game just keeps on giving <3

Those side missions aren't going anywhere. They'll still be there at WT5, you'll just be getting drops that remain relevant until the next step up (so the Raid in a week's time).

I knew it was coming, but didn’t think it would actually act like a minigun as regards damage. :lol:

 

I did notice Curtis pause before reviving us, and I’d like to think he sighed.

I’m at world tier 2 and was cooping with someone who was level 27-28 when I got my level up package thing. I opened it and the gear was really low, around 240 I think.

 

Is that right? Seems odd to match it to the other players world/level rather than mine.

Hard Missions? Easy

Challenging Stronghold? A good game of back and forth.

Heroic Priority Bounty? Arsed kicked from here to Peru (the last room is horrific)

 

:D

What's the deal once you hit WT5 then?

 

Drops seem to have stalled at 450. Done hard and challenging bounties and daily projects and it's all trash. Had a couple of things at 451, is it just natural slowdown when you hit WT5?

 

Should I be hitting the DZ? Barely touched it outside of the initial mission. Should I try and clear out the black tusk control points? 

 

I have the invaded missions to do but am holding off on them to try and get the brand sets at higher level. 

 

Also, where in the name of merry fuck is the Snitch? Tried every question mark, followed location guide and the stupid twat is nowhere to be found.

That's odd, I've had a continuous and relatively easy path from 250-500. I did read in the last patch they've tweaked some loot. Maybe try recalibrating some higher items?

So I feel like a dick but I still can't figure out how to join clan members - so I'm sorry for not helping some of you over the weekend.

 

When it says someone is matchmaking I click clan, and then I click on someone's name and there is no option to join them. All I can seem to do is click 'invite to team' but wouldn't that invite them into my game and not the other way round? Sorry I feel dumb checking this. In Destiny you can join on someone but can't see this option at all. Am I missing something?

Turns out buying some higher level vendor items and then doing a bit of crafting is the way to go to jump my GS up a bit. Went from 450 to 477 in about 10 minutes.

 

Also did my first bit of occupied Dark Zone. Is great fun but man it's frustrating if you die. Spawn back at the safe house, loading screen, leave safe house, loading screen, fast travel to team, loading screen, see that all your gear has gone..... Etc.

 

Is anyone else disappointed with the Specialisations? Mainly the complete lack of opportunity to actually use them. I've played multiple hours with all three now and have fired them less than 10 times each. 

 

The Survivalist crossbow actually seems like a really great weapon but the criteria for ammo dropping is way too strict. 'Killing debugged enemies' is what I believe drops it. They need to fix that as at the moment it's just a load of passive skills and the weapons have a need to be more fun.

Something in the first big update wrecked special ammo drops. They tried a fix but they are still way to rare. You used to get 5 or 6+ a mission not 1 or 2 if you are lucky.

 

You can go back to your White House and change them out and back to refill but its annoying. If you join someone elses game world you lose all your special ammo as well.

So it's still bugged you think? Thats encouraging.

 

I did get quite a bit of sharpshooter ammo drop on one mission but then it all dried up on the next. I thought it was headshot kills that dropped it but yeah, seems its still a bit messed up.

Oh there's lots of bugs still out there. Like control points you clear but can't actually clear because the civilians never show up. That's annoying when you solo a level three cp for the blueprints only to get NOTHING.

 

Or last night when I spawned three secret hunters and once I killed one another would show up and if I killed them then another woul spawn...I killed 5 fucking hunters before they killed me. Went back, there were still three hunters, killed one...then another just showed up and then I killed that one only for another...and so on.

 

It didn't end well.

I think it's been fixed - I'm certainly filling up to 6 ammo fairly regularly, and seeing it drop more if I use it.

 

I've only used the sharpshooter specialisation. The gun is great if you get a headshot on a purple enemy. It feels irrelevant against a yellow enemy (on hard or challenging). The static buffs to particular weapon types are presumably meaningful.

(I should really try a different specialisation, but now I'm entirely geared around rifles).

I had that but I forced the game to close (on Xbox) and rebooted, when I returned I could call the civilians, they appeared and it sorted itself out.

 

I’m annoyed with my crafting bench stuck at 200 with no upgrade option.

Oh is that where you get more BP?

 

I'm terrible at the random open world stuff - happily doing dailies/projects/bounties.

 

Don't forget Special Ammo drops are often driven by other people in your party having a spec activated, with the ammo perk and getting kills in right way for their spec to drop ammo for the team. If the team plays well you can really feel the ammo flow.

I still think adding a 'small chance of specialist ammo dropping from restock crates' would stop some of the frustration. I would definitely say the crossbow is the most fun to use based on the handful of times I fired it but it's just too hard to get. 

 

@Hexx - yeah, me too. I'm actively avoiding all open world map stuff as I run between missions and bounties. I just don't have the time to do it all and really you need to be in a synced up group to make it the most fun. I feel like it will be worth doing more when I've got a decent synergised build on the go.

In which WT do you start levelling up control points? As I’ve intercepted supply convoys etc but it seems to have no effect in WT1. 

 

WT5 is when it happened for me

Regarding specialisation ammo. You can just switch your specialisation at the white house and then switch back and it will fill your ammo. It's useful if you want to run something hard.

The servers will shut down for a scheduled maintenance Tuesday, April 16th at 09:30 AM CEST / 03:30 AM EDT / 12:30 AM PDT. Estimated downtime is approximately 3 hours.

We are deploying Patch 2.1 during this time.

Patch Notes:

  • Fixed an issue where enemy NPCs could get stuck in a T-pose when being killed out of view.
  • Fixed another issue with the Revive Hive not working properly. We are still working on instances where the skill sometimes will not resurrect players.
  • Fixed an issue where the Gila Guard brand gear could not be donated to the Campus Daily Project “Brand Request: Gila Guard”.
  • Fixed an issue where the Crafting Bench upgrade blueprint would not be granted to players when moving from one World Tier to another.
  • Fixed an issue where the two piece bonus of the True Patriot gear set would not trigger correctly.
