The Division servers down for maintenance, G36 assault rifle gets promised nerf

When The Division servers come back online after today's maintenance, your beloved G36 assault rifle will be a fair bit less powerful.


As planned, The Division servers have been taken offline for the weekly maintenance. This week's downtime comes with a host of fixes, and one promised nerf.

We're talking about the G36 assault rifle, of course, which developer Massive has promised to make less potent recently. The Underground assault rifle was largely considered to be the best weapon in the DLC, and it's now going to be 15 percent less powerful.

Find the full notes below:

  • Reduced the base damage of all G36 Assault Rifles by 15 percent.
  • Fixed a bug where named weapons could not have their talents recalibrated.
  • Fixed a bug where the Megamap would not open for some players.
  • Fixed a bug where using the Evacuation Point in Underground before the new Objective Notification has appeared caused the mission UI to break.
  • Fixed a bug where the AlphaBridge Gloves could miss some of their attributes. Note: this change is retroactive, which means that all attributes on existing AlphaBridge Gloves will be rerolled.
  • Fixed a bug where the game music would stop completely when logging out while inside an Incursion.
  • Fixed a bug where recalibrating the last Talent on the PP-19 submachinegun would not yield a free Talent.
  • Fixed a bug where the Sentry Gear Set bonus would incorrectly apply when using The Showstopper automatic shotgun.
  • Fixed a bug where using a Signature Skill could cause the visual effect to be applied to all nearby players (not just group members).
  • Fixed a bug where weapon talents could stack indefinitely while using the Alpha-Bridge Gear Set 4-piece bonus.
  • Fixed a bug where recalibrating weapon talents would yield a random bonus, instead of the one selected in the UI.
  • Fixed a bug where players would die when returning to certain missions after respawning in a safe house.
  • Fixed a bug where PC players would be able to use multiple consumables at the same time.
