Agents!

We are happy to introduce the newest feature to The Division with Update 1.8.2 - Shields! Found in the first tab of the Dossier, Shields are a group of unique commendations that reward both long term and new players for completing very specific challenges across The Division. The following four Shields will be the first available for you to earn with the launch of Update 1.8.2. Going forward, an additional Shield will become available every month for you to unlock.


Shepherd - Unlock the Base of Operations
Avenger - Eliminate 10 Named bosses in Manhattan, 10 in the Dark Zone, and 10 in West Side Piers
Deadeye - Complete all weekly High Value Targets
Hazard - Clear 25 landmarks in the Dark Zone

With every Shield unlocked, you will receive the following rewards:


One Audio Log
One Patch with the relevant Shield Icon
One Shield Cache

One Exotic Weapon
Two Classified Gear Set pieces
2,000 Phoenix Credits
500 D-Tech
Three Cypher Keys
The Shields and the Patches are account wide, but the reward caches will be unlocked on the character completing the Shield itself.


The rewards do not stop in The Division, as unlocking Shields grants rewards in The Division 2! As Agents collect Shields, you will be placed in a tiered system. The more Shields earned in The Division, the higher the tier you reach, the more rewards you will receive in The Division 2. A higher tier grants players more rewards:


Tier 1 - Weapon Skin
Tier 2 - Outfit and Patch
Tier 3 - Emote and Gear Dye
Tier 4 - Taunting Emote and Backpack Trophy

Shields will help you prepare for the next chapter in The Division and challenge yourself in new ways. Collect the Shields, listen to new Audio Logs, and sport new cosmetics in The Division 2!

I'm assuming these shields are base game only and not dlc specific. I don't want to miss out on these items just because i didn't pay another 30 for the season pass.

Especially with Division 2 right around the corner i see very little point for paying for extra modes at this point. I just hope i can complete all twelve Shields without having to pay for the ability to complete them.

Think a few of them from the reddit data mining thread said some survivor and underground based shields were involved but please do not hold me to that since it is data mining.

When is the shield open?
I remember more than 2 weeks ago, it said 12 days and now there is no timer?

I think I heard that the timer was a mistake and it would be announced when it will arrive. I think it was on a state of the game episode.

Some developer at Massive:

"I had this great idea in the shower, check this out. Let's create a system in the game that rewards players for doing all the stuff they have been doing for that past few years but doesn't count any of that old stuff, and makes them do it all over again so we can give them some useless nothing rewards in the next version of our crappy broken game."

Everyone else at Massive:
"WHAT?!?!?!?!!?!?!?! OMG THAT IS THE BEST IDEA EVER!!!!!! /PROMOTION!!!!!!"

Such fail. And that running in place video... HOLY !@#$ BATMAN! I had no idea that was even a thing, of course I absolutely hate PVP especially in this game as it is all based 100% on gear and 0 skill, but I had no idea that was even a thing. So glad I quit playing this after the 1.6 patch.

I thought I would try it out at 1.8.2, still disappointed.

Why are you disappointed nothing's really changed from 1.6 it's still the same fun game they've just added more to it nothing to be disappointed about
