    Update 1.8.2 - Patch Notes

    New Feature: Shields
    Shields are a group of twelve unique collectibles that reward both long term and new players for completing challenges throughout the game. Earning a Shield will reward the player with a Shield Cache that contains a selection of valuable items and currency bundles. In addition, earning multiple Shields unlocks exclusive rewards for use in Tom Clancy's The Division®2. The Shields feature can be found in the first tab of the Dossier.

    Initially, four Shields will be available for players to earn. Subsequently, an additional Shield will become available every month.

    The first four shields available on June 14th are:

    • Shepherd – Unlock the Base of Operations.
    • Hazard – Clear 25 landmarks in the Dark Zone.
    • Deadeye – Complete all weekly HVT’s within a week.
    • Avenger – Take out 10 named bosses in Manhattan, 10 in the Dark Zone and 10 in the West Side Piers area.

    New Patches
    Twelve new Patches are available - they can be unlocked by completing the corresponding Shield challenges.

    New Legendary Difficulty Missions
    Madison Field Hospital.
    General Assembly.

    New Audio Logs
    Twelve new audio logs are available - they can be unlocked by completing the corresponding Shield challenges.

    Phoenix Credit Limit
    Phoenix Credit limit has increased from 5,000 to 8,000.

    Game Changes

    Classified Gear
    • Predator’s Mark
      • Set Bonus (6 pieces):
        • Hitting 10 shots without switching targets now applies The Predator’s Mark which makes the target bleed for 50% of the damage already done by those bullets. The Damage over time to the target is increased by 15% for every 3000 Stamina and can critically hit the target. When at 9000 Stamina the damage over time bonus is increased by an additional 120%. The Predator's Mark ignores the Status Effect Immunity of NPCs.
    • Path of the Nomad
      • Set Bonus (6 pieces):
        • 50% chance to have no cool-down for Path of the Nomad when playing solo. Take 60% less damage for 10 seconds after Path of the Nomad is triggered.
    • Tactician’s Authority
      • Set Bonus (6 pieces):
        • Improved Tactician’s Authority stacks will no longer reset when using elevators. Stacks will now correctly be lost upon activation of Recovery Link.
    • Reclaimer
      • Set Bonus (4 pieces):
        • Reclaimer support stations will now self-destruct when the set is unequipped.

    Gameplay
    • Support Stations with the highest health per tick will now take priority when in range of several stations.
    • Fixed an issue that would cause items to temporarily disappear from the inventory after having shared an item.
    • Implemented a cooldown that reduces the auto-snap on aim after first use.
    • Fixed an issue which would cause item mods to be unequipped when changing loadouts under certain conditions.

    Dark Zone
    • Contamination Events effect should no longer display as active once the event has ended.
    • Opera House Landmark will now spawn NPCs correctly.
    • We took care of a couple of evil cars in DZ09 that kept trapping unsuspecting players.

    Last Stand
    • Fixed an issue causing forward spawn points to be unavailable on certain maps.

    Global Events
    • Descriptions have been added to the loading screens for Global Event.
    • Smart bullets can now only be activated in the appropriate missions.
    • Corrected the ‘Never Enough’ commendation UI to not list Stolen Signal as a requirement.

    Underground
    • Underground bosses will no longer drop Vendor Exotic weapons.

    Audio
    • Fixed missing audio in Last Stand, Skirmish & Camp Clinton for all non-English languages.

    Legendary Missions
    • Mission reward panels have been updated to show the correct Gear Score.
    • Players are no longer able to bypass objectives in Legendary Amherst’s Apartment.

    Vanity Items
    • Overlapping arm patches have been fixed when combining ‘Roadie Jacket’ with ‘Ghost Recon Wildlands shirt’ or ‘Sniper shirt’.

    Other
    • No, Kotaku, there are no strange doors fixed in this update.

    I hope the Reactivation Cache is only missing in the patch notes?!

    Nothing on:

    Grenade pre-stagger?
    Gear set glitching?
    Survival share glithing?
    Skill lock?
    Skill delay?

    Would you just confirm if there are going to be any more changes or is this it?

    I mean you have basically told everyone to go and use the only set now viable (Striker)

    Shields that have been completed should be automatically rewarded

    I'm highly disappointed in the shields list. My commendation rank is 5315 so I've already completed "Hazard". I shouldn't have to compete anything twice. I've put in long hrs. All players should be rewarded for there gameplay. Shields that matchup with a commendations should be automatically rewarded.

    Striker is meta now

    playing for 6 hours after the update, striker is completely meta. Everyone is running it. They drop an immune box and a shock turret, and when you have a group of four doing this they are impossible to kill. Pred is useless, and so is nomad unless your playing solo in which you cant beat 4 of them anyway, unless you copy them and run striker also with immune box and shock turret. #divisionisbroken

    Your way of playing is broken. Me and my friends have had no issue running pretty much anything but striker in the dz. Im particularly fond of my hybrid alpha build and my banshee tac. And have had no trouble going manhunt vs an entire server wearing striker and clearing it wearing such builds. Massive and ubisoft, great job with this update. You finally brought back what was missing from the dz: diversity
