The Division sequel is bringing a lot of changes with it, including a new Rogue system that includes Theft and Greed activities.
The third tier expands on the current Rogue and Manhunt status, with PvE actions for those agents who don’t want to stoop to killing their fellow comrades in PvP, but are morally ambiguous enough to steal anything that isn’t nailed down.
Arekkz Gaming’s latest video goes into more detail, but in The Division 2, you can steal loot by breaking open locked chests you don’t have a key for, and stealing Dark Zone supply drops, rather than opening the chests to let everyone have a rifle through.
Another aspect of this system lets you play the hero or villain in yet another non-confrontational way. Should you come across the loot of a downed player, you can step in and secure the loot for them, ensuring it’ll stay put until they respawn and get back to collect it, or you can be an utter arsehole and swipe it right out from under their nose.
Participating in enough Theft and Greed activities triggers the Thieves Den – locations on the map that you have to enter to find a waiting NPC who will reward you for bringing them their requested materials.
All of that thieving won’t go unnoticed; you’ll still attain Rogue status so all you tea leaves out there need to watch your back.
Be sure to read up on all of the changes The Division 2 is making to the Dark Zone as well as how to get into the private beta that runs from February 7 – 10.
The Division 2 launches on PC (through Uplay and the Epic Games Store), PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, on March 15.
