I just started playing this over the weekend... is the consensus that you should go with the turret early on? I opted for the seeker mine as my first gadget.

Turret first, drone second. The rest are pretty useless (at least in comparison and you can only equip two).

Man I have played this game for many hours and I still don't understand all the upgrades , projects, blueprints and mods. It's so much to absorb and understand. In any case there's a TON of content to this game.
As I said above, I never use more than those tow skills (Drone, Turret). The others might be useful (and potentially fun, at least the Chem Launcer), but none of the others have anywhere near the usefulness of the BIG 2.

I keep reading the description of the Year 1 Pass and honestly I have no idea how anyone could come away convinced it has anywhere near $40 of content in it. Am I wrong, or is it only for online guys who want to have unique cosmetics for their avatar?

What has been going on with The Division 2 lately?....I was looking forward to Ghost Recon Breakpoint but after playing the beta I'm cancelling my preorder and might be diving back into this after a long break...or even looking at GoW5.

I see this is on the PS Store on sale (Base for $12, Ultimate Efition for $24), and wondered if its worth getting the Ulitmate edition? Someone said it plays like Wildlands, and if that's the case then I would love it.

Have you played the first one? It's currently on Gamepass. I haven't played too much of the second one yet since picking it up, but it's more of the same, which I like.

If you like Wildlands, you should like this one.

I didnt play the first one and I have a PS4, so no gamepass.

I think for $24 it's worth taking a chance on.

Re: The Division 2 (PS4, XB1, PC) 3/15/19

I've played both Wildlands and D2 and both were fun.....I had more with Wildlands though but there was always 2-3 of us with it that made it that way. Division 2 picks up years after Division 1 (New York) and put you in Washington D.C where no doubt Ubisoft did a excellent job capturing the city and landmarks. It's far more huge and open than New York that gives you more elbow room. The story is good, loot, your gear, weapons...everything has been upgraded. One of the biggest changes is the involvement of the "Local NPC's"....in New York they fled...here they pick up arms and get involved. There's a constant Back & Forth of controlling points throughout the city in sectors where you (and others) take over or defend. There's always something going on....

I didn't get involved doing the RAIDs too much...moving on to other games....but Division 2 was fun to play and like Wildlands is even better with others in a group. Still have it and wouldn't mind revisiting it....

Well I grabbed it. It's been downloading since around 1PM and is currently around 60gb downloaded. Got another 39gb to go, so will be ready for the morning. I have to admit I am very curious about this game now. Hell of a price drop from $120 to $24.

Re: The Division 2 (PS4, XB1, PC) 3/15/19

I cannot even remember if I have one or two characters.....but in any case you need a hand or just some company I'll jump in. I probably need to at least see on updates.....it's been close to 5-6 months since I fired it up. One reason for that long DL...day one patch was like 80-90 GB...not kidding....


...just had to fire it up before heading to work.....seriously, I've been itching to get back in this game but sadly about all the ones who I played with slowly going elsewhere or joining others who were higher ranked to do the RAIDs. There were 5 of us who bought the game and like Wildlands shines with 2-4 in a group. I only have one character, he's just a Gear Level 580 my main who finished the campaign and was hoping to do the second run-thru...it's challenging. We toyed with it here and there and the loot drops really do pick up. It's less forgiving in that mode though if your Gear Score is too low against enemies unless they fixed it. In terms of gameplay, setting, story, the action....I like Division 2 a bit more than Wildlands....one is a huge area where stealth is it while the other is more like urban warfare around every corner in a area that has tons of places to explore that's real....

I'd be curious what the ultimate edition has since all of the DLC has been free. Maybe you get some extra weapons or something?

Re: The Division 2 (PS4, XB1, PC) 3/15/19

I got this for $5 on the PC back around xmas. I've been playing it a bunch over the last week. Its pretty fun. Only to level 8 or 9 currently but I did find a level 30 orange weapon so i have something to look forward to, haha.
I have a hard time figuring out which are the best weapons in my inventory. I'm currently using a bolt action sniper rifle with a 12x that is a few levels below my current level and a M60.

Re: The Division 2 (PS4, XB1, PC) 3/15/19

Hey All

I looked it up and last time I played was around 280 days ago. I know there's been some updates...especially Title 6 which was in November that was huge. Has there been some good changes overall...know there was a new class, Technician added. Three of us talked about getting back with all of us saying the game has been on our Radar for awhile. We're all above Gear Level 540 but really didn't get too far in the second part with Black Tusk.

I started playing it and put a couple of hours into it, but it's not grabbing me as much as I thought. Probably because I am still concentrating on a few other games. Will get back to it once I finish those.

Re: The Division 2 (PS4, XB1, PC) 3/15/19

I was hoping to get some back in but even after saying the game was still on their radar...they've got other games they've got into and seems this is not pressing. Shame as I wanted to at least give it a go one day/night but unless I find a group or one of my friends decides to break away and run, this will remain on the back-burner. If you do decide later, shoot me a message...I'll run. Don't matter from what point in the game...

Re: The Division 2 (PS4, XB1, PC) 3/15/19

I reached level 21 yesterday. I finally had to call in someone for help on a mission (a heavy armored elite guy in a small room that rushes you can hits you with a hammer). The mission was super easy with two people.
One problem with the game is that i get too much gear. I'm constantly upgrading gear and guns. The only talents I seem to ever use are the turrent (sniper or flame) and the drone with the machine gun.

But we will.

Re: The Division 2 (PS4, XB1, PC) 3/15/19

I'm having fun with it. I've played it a lot more than i played the Division 1. I seem to be leveling up and completing missions without a problem but its like I'm only half the game. There are some many things in the game i dont really understand. Like skills and gear mods. But it doesnt seem to be slowing me down.

I unlocked the level 30 specializations and now the whole game changed. All the bad guys are killing me now! I died 5 times just trying to do little stuff near the white house. Thats more than I died leveling from 1-30.

As many know....The Division 2 is a game all about positioning....but when you are solo, that's almost all out the window as the enemy AI will zero in on you versus having a group of 2-4 spread out at different points. There are some skills that helps depending on your style of play, close, mid-range or long. The Hive skill is almost a must to have and can be a lifesaver. this is a pretty old guide...when game was released but some still hold true today. But when and if possible, get another body in via matchmaking; makes life and survival far easier....

Picked it up with the current $3 sale. Good so far, especially for the cost

Always online and no pause button sucks tho. Hit pause and let the dogs out, came back to getting shot to pieces

Re: The Division 2 (PS4, XB1, PC) 3/15/19

Well a couple of us have brought this game back up and in the mix and neither of us kow much as to what's been going on, changes, updates, good or bad, latest & greatest....or same game as before. We have seen an uptick of people on our friends list but in honesty we wouldn't know where to start. We barely touched the game after hitting the next phase after finishing the story because we were seriously getting our butts kicked.

We saw where the new DLC...Return to New York is hitting mid March but it's paid and not included on the Season One Pass...will be up for grabs for $30.00. But we feel and think there's plenty to do in Washington and also saw where the Comey Island DLC was supposed to be free here in a week or two. Just wanted to get and hear about some feedback as worth getting back in with 2-3 friends, hows the areas, matchmaking, gear & loot and are you still going to get your butt kicked going thru the second phase?

I just started playing a couple month back. I don't know if I'm in the second phase or not but it did get more difficult when i hit 30 and the Tusk guys invaded. I got better gear and have been progressing again. I just about filled out my specialist points. I havent paid for any pass or DLC and there still seems to be a lot to do.

I've played the game for many many hours and I still have almost no idea what the DLC is. I've searched and it seems like early unlocks to things that are already unlocked. Can't figure out why anyone would buy it.
