Tom Clancy's [The Division]: "Hey, it's that Agent!"

Plots

Tom Clancy's The Division is an apolitical game wherein you play the role of a super patriot (or crazy-crazy) sleeper agent who is a member of the Strategic Homeland Division (SHD) aka "The Division," called upon by the President of the United States in order to preserve/restore the continuity of the United States government with extreme prejudice, in chilly New York City.

The sequel, Tom Clancy's The Division 2, is also an apolitical game wherein you play the role of a different super patriot (or crazy-crazy) sleeper agent, called upon by the President of the United States in order to preserve/restore the continuity of the United States government, in Washington D.C. This game takes place several months after the first, so it's really hot and muggy. Also sections of Washington D.C seem to have reverted back to literal swampland, and the rest is just overgrown.

But yeah, there are totally no politics or political messages in either game. You're just a person authorized to restore government control via any means necessary. Really. No politics! Nope.

Backstory
The story of The Division begins in 2001, with Operation Dark Winter, a real world simulated of bio-terror attack. It was projected that the US health care system lacked the capacity to support such a massive surge in sickness, and that generally there would be conflicts between the federal and state governments in how to control the outbreak and panic among the people and well, it wasn't good. An excerpt from the sim responses regarding this:

“My fellow governors are not going to permit you to make our states leper colonies. We’ll determine the nature and extent of the isolation of our citizens....You’re going to say that people can’t gather. That’s not your [the federal government’s] function. That’s the function, if it’s the function of anybody, of state and local officials." (Frank Keating, Sim Governor of OK)

“Mr. President, this question got settled at Appomattox. You need to federalize the National Guard.” (George Terwilliger, Sim Attorney General).

“We’re going to have absolute chaos if we start having war between the federal government and the state government." (Sam Nunn, Sim President)

The general idea is that the US government and healthcare infrastructure simply wasn't ready for it. In response to this, in-game the President/federal government secretly creates an organization of sleeper agents that would answer only to the President, with the express goal of restoring and maintaining continuity of government in a crisis. This agency is the Strategic Homeland Division... aka "The Division". Division agents are hand-picked from various fields. With recruitment occurring via word-of-mouth like you'd expect a secret cabal of sleeper agents to work. There are field agents, and also Division agents with no combat capabilities... obviously you're not one of them.

Over a decade later (2015), during Black Friday, a bio-terrorist attack occurs. Known as the "Dollar Flu"/"Green Poison" this smallpox variant was super effective and while the focus of the games are NYC and DC, it spreads the world over. During the outbreak the US government's response was to reorganize the national guard, and all of the police, fire departments, etc. into a single group under CERA (this universe's FEMA), called the Joint Task Force. As the situation grows worse and the JTF begins to falter, the President activates the sleepers.

This doesn't help. Some of the First Wave division agents go rogue, the same faith (or just general crazy) ultimately causing them to turn their backs and strike out on their own, joining the many factions that are all squabbling over controlling what remains. With that wave failing, the second wave is called in, which represents your Agent in the first game, and possibly the sequel too.

Gameplay

Both games are cover based looter-shooter RPGs, with the sequel having more tactical/realistic leaning than the first.

On top of the looting and shooting, the sequel features a simulated faction territory control system. Control points are located in each section of the map, and after you reach a certain level the factions will fight to gain control of them. Resource nodes are also tied to these control points, and the simulation has NPCs gathering from them to keep their base running if you don't do it for them. The factions fight for control of these nodes, and supplies between control points they own.

Progression after max level is tied to a gear score and unlocking world tiers (which you can freely switch between in the first) through completing additional missions and requirements. The sequel will also feature 8-player raid content, though this has not been released as of yet but is coming soon. The first major content update happened last week, featuring the highest tier (WT5).

Clans

The Division 2 has in-game clan support, and there are several PA clans and side-clans for all platforms. In order to join a clan, you should put your name on the following spreadsheet, ideally prior to requesting an invite. Each clan/platform has different officers that can accept the invitation.

This spreadsheet has information for both games, so make sure you document in the tab for the appropriate one.

[Officer Names?]

Helpful Information

This is a link to the Division 2 Encylopedia. Here you'll find info on all the weapons, perks and talents and it's fairly regularly maintained.

This is a link to an interactive map of all locations (caches, spawns, you name it) in the current DC map.

If there is any other pertinent information, it can be added. If there is a good video on how to get all the easter egg stuff, that'd be appreciated.
Hunters
1pu9agz38fph.png

Hunters are hidden bosses in the The Division games whose only known objective is to kill agents and collect their watches. Whether or not this is because you want to kill them and wear their faces remains to be seen. As optional bosses, they can be tough depending on your gear vs World Tier. Some hunters are available at any time, while others can only be fought at night (1900 - 0500) in-game. You can check to see what time it is by going into photo mode. It's in the right side of the UI. If you fail to kill one it may despawn and you will have to wait another 'day'/'night' cycle to trigger it again. Hunters can only be triggered after you first encounter one in a sub-mission... you'll know it when it happens.

These videos were created a reddit user and more info can be found here, along with step by step directions. If you want to find out how to trigger the hunters on your own, you must find the graffiti cypher puzzles hidden in the game, solve them, then figure out what they want you to do... Otherwise, you can just look at these videos. The numbers correspond to the video that contains how to acquire them.

1 Demon Mask
2 Crimson Mask
3 Ghoul Mask
4 Wraith Mask (Night Required)
5 Ghost (Night Required)
5 Specter Masks (If you miss a window, leave the area and come back.)
6 Midas and Revenant Masks (Night required)
7 Phantom, Death, Cross, and Diamond Phantom Masks (These will not despawn if you don't take them all out, but will chase you... even to just outside safe houses)

    I think people may end up getting more into basic levels of skill power for mods. Since the last patch, some build "meta" had shifted away from crits (which means stacking a lot of red points) and toward skills with flat bonuses that require yellows and few reds. My current shotgun build had to do a 180, dropped all crits, to get "premeditated" (+damage after reload), "compensated" (+damage at low CHC), and "unstoppable force" (+damage based on total armour). It wouldn't take much for most weapons to add "on the ropes" (+damage when skills in cd) and get better and more consistent damage without crits or a lot of reds, freeing up space for necessary blues and yellows. Sucks that most of the alternatives for "premeditated" don't roll on shotguns, so I have to pick between that and "on the ropes." If I stack fast reload and with the bonus rate of fire from reloading thanks to chatterbox, it works out anyway. Just seems more worthwhile than trying to get all those perfect damage rolls

    Actually, next time I get a decent shotgun drop I'm going to experiment with "pommel" to see if it's consistent enough to trade out for "premeditated" so I can add "on the ropes." I think it will fall apart with elites though

    I hope they change the drop rate of gearscore 500 items.

    Its getting real annoying that its basically every 1 in 15-20 items that drop at 500.

    We saw it working perfectly fine at 450 with every item being 450 at that point, so this just seems to be some dumb way to make the grind longer for no good reason.

    That's the reason though tier 4 wasn't end game, this is and they can't possibly give people full gear. Though you can optimize to top out.

    Also, what the hell is Pestilence made for?

    I checked it, it does 1/6 of the damage of my Military M60... 1/6! This is an exotic for christ sakes!

    Honestly most of the exotics are either a holstered perk or situational. Its been more than a little underwhelming going from division 1 where you could build around like a house, or a showstopper. And this not at all. Just like the sets we have are underwhelming?

    It's like they are risk averse giving players anything that could be "game breaking" so they give people things that are worse than yellows. One of the youtubers I watched go over tidal basin as an update said it made him curtail his expectation about the raid. Either the exotics there will be game breaking thus forcing everyone to raid and that will go over like a wet fart, or they'll be the same mediocrity we got which means no one will raid.

    I'm aiming for around 115 to 140 percent damage to my lmg while in combat for this build of mine, but I'm only at something like 80. Need a few more compatible drops.

    On The Ropes is actually pretty okay to use skills with, as having charges left in your Chem Launcher doesn't matter so long as it isn't full.

    Pulse or Seeker and Chem of your choice is still handy. The yellow slots let me mod in three or four Chem ammo.


    I tried out Calculated for a bit, but I couldn't quite cover for my lack of Patience without Unbreakable or the 50 percent chance of a free armor kit.

    Having seekers out every 15 seconds or so was pretty cool, though, and I can see some value in pulsing forever or keeping a spotter drone up at all times.

    It sucks that having chem charges down counts as cd or On the Ropes, but having a drone or the like active doesn't. Severely limits what you can do with the skill

    It's one of the main things that hampers the hardwired set as well. Since on cooldown means you have to have deployed the skill and it has to be "gone" it is really hard to leverage that component of the set to have any real consistent value.

    Also - how is your shotgun build working? Sounds interesting but I would be worried about getting destroyed by being close enough to use one effectively in the higher tier stuff.

    So, I did all of the Invaded missions, did the invaded Hyena stronghold, and got the World Tier 2 message. The only difference seems too be the area around the Hyena stronghoold isn't perma-invaded now. So I guess now I just keep upping my gear score doing missions and such, and each time I knock over another Invaded stronghold, it will up my World Tier and remove perma-invasion from the area around that stronghold, finally resulting in me being able to do Tidal Basin at the end of World Tier 4?

    still a wip. ended up having to drop pummel since it requires 4+ reds, meaning no compensated. need a new weapon active, and the only real choices are optimist or steady hand. neither of which i have right now. got everything else going but need to find better armour (ended up throwing stuff together to cover what i needed to activate skills, so don't have the brand bonuses i'd like yet). also thinking of trading in my spas 12 for a super 90 because it has slightly better range, faster reload speed, and 3 mod slots instead of 1. just over twice the rate of fire for exactly half the damage (if i can find a good roll) is good now I don't have to worry so much about 1-shotting with body shots.

    so far, i've been able to solo anything i've tried. haven't played any heroic, but i did the invaded stronghold on challenging and basin on hard. just chem launcher heal and emp pulse that i spam whenever it's off cd to keep my on the ropes up. +3 cp is not too bad (run them nonstop to collect bps), +4 takes time depending on how open it is.

    Look at the time, it's Jefferson o'clock- I forgot that I'll be farming for that today.


    Y'all hitting world tiers, I hope you have tons of fun. Tiers one to five are a sort of endgame tour, where you see the neat missions, meet the new guys on the block, and get used to rushers being really scary. The missions pop up again, rather than being one and done.

    When you hit tier 5, you can safely start looking at keeping your drops for a good while and building around them. Gear Score on drops is determined by the highest item in your inventory, on your person, or in your cache, so you don't need to swap stuff out all the time. The difference between 450 and 500 items is primarily in raw armor value. Other stats don't really get higher budgets.

    For the moment, lower tier mods tend to be the most applicable when it comes to doing neat things with your skills. Chem ammo +5 might cost 2500 skill power, while +3 might be a mere 1100. A single item can have +650 skill power on it, so it can be easy to make your chem launcher more fun to play around with, for example.


    Oh, and there's a social space just outside the Whitehouse spawn which should be open for business at tier one on. I've heard mixed reports of it being active earlier? Anyway- Rallypoint Omaha, on your right after loading in, has a full suite of vendors, matchmaking and crafting stations, as well as access to your clan hall and a travel point for unreleased off-site activities.

    I hit WT5 the other night, looking forward to start crafting my build.

    I got a holster the other day that seems pretty keen for my demo spec, especially considering the adjustment made to how specialized ammo drops. Can't remember its exact name but its an ability that allows you to cook your 'nades before chucking them so it gives enemies less chance to get out of the aoe circle. Feels like something that should be a trait in the demo tree? But hey its on my holster now and every holster forever more.

    hit WT5 yesterday. Some kindly agents in the DZ dropped me a 498 SVD while I was WT2, so it was a nice boost. Best 450 armor I've found so far has been my holster that reloads all weapons when one is reloaded from empty. As a demolition build with a LMG, keeping a 6shooter with a quick reload has been wonderful for fast reloads with minimal loss in damage output :)

    What a fun game!

    I hit WT5 the other night, looking forward to start crafting my build.

    I got a holster the other day that seems pretty keen for my demo spec, especially considering the adjustment made to how specialized ammo drops.

    To Order. It's pretty fun. The aim line will even show where in the path the grenade will blow up if you cook it long enough to airburst. Oddly, as long as they don't get hit, detonating a grenade right above a group of enemies will not aggro them.

    I got Merciless last night.
    It's pretty dope.
    You can stack the debuff and chunk people.

    Bless your heart.

    Are there any benefits to joining a clan other than easily finding people to game with? Some games have extra rewards for completing clan missions and such.

    Kind of wish this game had a better in-game explanation of things. Just the other day, I had to look up what those red, yellow, and blue symbols mean so I understood what the requirements on some weapon perks meant.

    While I agree that being insensitive is an issue, so is being oversensitive.

    Clans include a bit of progression system where they unlock a vendor, a weekly goody box, and a leaderboard. You can also join directly on clan mates from the social panel, as you can with friends.

    Before I invest the time, one can collect the components again to build another Liberty for exotic component fodder right?

    I don't know on this. I was in a streamers chat yesterday and someone had taken apart their chatterbox and couldn't then get the pieces back. I would avoid breaking it down.

    I would like some money because these are artisanal nuggets of wisdom philistine.

    Ugh, does that leave me with trying to farm the DZ exotic LMG for components?
