Today's The Division patch makes Underground loot more interesting

The key changes The Division players will see following today's maintenance.

The Division servers are currently down for maintenance. When they come back online, a couple of big changes will have been made.

Ubisoft detailed the changes being implemented, and they should make weapon and gear collectors very happy. The Underground Operation Directives rewards will now include all gear sets from update 1.1 and 1.2. You also have a chance at getting more loot when you finish Operations with over four Directives.

Underground Sealed Caches have also had their loot table expanded to include all weapon types and all Underground and update 1.3 gear sets.

In the video above, Alex explains what these changes mean for players, and why they're big news for diversifying the loot and the gear/weapon drops, especially for hardcore players who are have been mostly getting repeats.

  • Fixed a bug where players could initiate 1 Phase Operations in Heroic difficulty by pressing a combination of buttons on their input device.
  • Rewards from Underground Operation Directives will now also include all gear sets from Updates 1.1 and 1.2 and you have a chance to receive additional loot when completing Operations with 4+ Directives.
  • Rewards from Underground Sealed Caches will now include all weapon types as well as all Underground and Update 1.3 gear sets.
  • Named NPCs in the Underground now have increased drop rates across all difficulties and doing multiple phase operations will give you a better chance at higher quality gear.”
