Posted by at 11:29 am on May 14, 2019


The third major (Update 3)mhas landed for The Division 2 is not out.  It has added a new achievement relating to the upcoming 8-player raid, Operation Dark Hours. The raid will be available to World Tier 5 players with a gear score of at least 490 from 9:00AM PDT on May 16th. The first team to complete Operation Dark Hours will get their team photo and names displayed in the White House for all players to see.

Operation Dark Hours will take place at Washington National Airport, a strategic point for the Black Tusk where they currently fly in their supplies and new troops. Players will face the toughest bosses and the most advanced technology the game has to offer, but those who triumph will get new loot, gear sets, an exotic weapon, a clan banner icon, and a new trophy for the clan space. Those who manage the complete the raid in its first week of release will also get a commemorative arm patch.

Until goes live Operation Dark Hours , players have new Classified Assignments, a new Apparel event, new Commendations to go.  And of course there are all the of bug fixes which should make you gaming more enjoyable.

We recommend to do the The Classified Assignments ASAP, since they explain the story behind the fall of Washington DC and allow players to unlock exclusive Backpack Trophies. The first two assignments are available from today, but  they exclusive to Year 1 Pass gamers.

What is open to all is the new Apparel event which is happens at the same time as the Operation Dark Hours raid. The event will add new outfits, masks, emotes, and weapon skins to earn.

The following Commendations have been retired from the game:

  • 28 Days Distinction – Record 672 hours (28 days) of time in-game.
  • Distinguished Service Ribbon – For 30 consecutive days, on each day play for at least 1h and complete 1 mission.
  • Supreme Response Distinction – For 7 consecutive days, on each day complete 4 main missions and rescue 5 civilians.
  • Year One Merit – Play on 14 days per month, on a total of 12 months.
  • Division Service Merit – For a total of 100 days, on each day play for at least 1 hour and deliver 20 resources to control points.

These have been removed because the team felt “they were not delivering a great experience for players”. It was possible for players to lose their daily login or stream through no fault of their own, so they will instead be implementing new Commendations that don’t have login requirements. Those players who had already completed some of the above commendations will be able to keep them. Those who put time towards the above Commendations but hadn’t completed them will receive a new vanity patch to compensate them for the time lost.

New Commendations:

  • Full Deck Distinction – Acquire all Snitch Cards.
  • Distinguished Service Distinction – Complete 30 hours of service.
  • Supreme Response Distinction – Complete all main missions and Strongholds on Hard difficulty (or above).
  • Control Point Takeover Merit – Take over 50 Heroic Control Points.
  • Invasion Service Merit – Complete 10 Invaded Strongholds.

Recalibration Changes:

  • Recalibration has been changed to allow for the majority of stats to be moved as they are, from one item to another, while making it less likely to reach the cap of the stat moved.
  • To achieve this goal, the recalibrated power is a separate number, next to the gear score. As such, the recalibration will no longer increase the gear score of the item. All existing recalibrated items will have their recalibrated additional gear score converted to the new format.
  • This should also help you to retain the values you want to recalibrate.

You can learn about all  improvements and bug fixes in the full patch notes. Title Update 3 is available now.
