The Division 2 |OT| National Anthem

The poison shell (cant recall the name) for the chem launcher will hit all the launchers weak points with one shot, so you can sit in cover and use that (takes two shots) if you are having trouble with the timed phase.
oxidizer. ppl at low tier lv should look out for chem launcher ammo mod. its stil quite hard to find any mod at wt5 to find lower skill req :(

Have to ask, you're killing in the right way for each type to drop right?
Yes. Sharpshooter so headshots and I'm seeing the the recorded extra headshot XP after encounters. 3 missions and nothing today. I've switched specialization, redone my points, multiple logins. About to do my 4th mission now and see what happens.

Edit: ok I'm done. In one combat encounter in my 4th mission of the day I had 9 registered headshot kills and no special ammo. That was also my 3rd attempt of the day to complete this invades mission because the other 2 had progression breaking bugs.

Over 2mil dps with (0 crit chance) my Assault Rifle without Unstoppable Force active. I could go higher than that but I would have to add more hard hitting and more red weapon damage atts but I like my talents so it will stay the way it is. Currently running 3-8-8 (red, blue, yellow) cause I want to use seeker mines as I got some nice mods for them and they work really nice with on the ropes. 255K armor, 50K health, 2300 skill power.

 
Any explanation here for me please?
In order to do it...? do what...? you should be able to do side missions or something or you have to find the people first that will open up the crafting bench lets say etc etc...when you are at the settlement,do you have the orange ! in the bottom left corner telling you what to do...? also discover some safe houses and look at the computer which will tell you what you have to do in each district...?

All safe house doors are shut. As are critical mission doors. I cannot progress in the game. I have restarted my console and hard booted several times. Am I totally screwed?

Ran my first level 4 control point yesterday, noamlly I just solo to level 3 for the blue print and clear it but after completing the daily with randos we just went on abit of a rampage and before we new it we were clearing a level 4 CP.

Shit was intense and probably the best experience I've had in the game so far. It took a while, started in day time and finished in darkness, a resource convoy decided to invade the party and then a god damn black tusk recon chopper decided to shred us as well the Outcasts around us! Was absolutely mega, got it cleared in the end with afew deaths and fast travels to one and other along the way with plenty of decent loot too.

I've seen they're talking about nerfing aspects of level 4 control points and solo I can understand why but in a disorganised, non communicating group like us it was challenging but nothing out of the ordinary. Hope it stays as it is.

Which AR+Talent are you using? Ive been putting together a similar build and shooting for a CTAR with Optimist and UF+OtR+Compensated on my gear. Unfortunately, Ive had no luck with AR drops and slapped together a LMG version in the mean time.

Yep and its 3 spots on each(2 on each side and one on top) but they dont show you that at first,they only show you the whole Launcher...if you fail,the first one you need to do might not be the same one,so that threw us off a bit,plus it was pouring rain,not sure if its always like that, but it makes it a little harder the first time around to see the spots...now I know what to do but still,you need a few wipes to figure it out.
I've done Tidal Basin twice now solo, and have only ever seen two weak spots. Dunno if they add a third one for groups but I can't imagine why they would do that.

If you're running with multiple people, maybe try running only as a duo or solo? (I guess solo if you don't have a friend to duo with, hard to set that up with randoms). That should reduce the pressure on you from enemies. I found it pretty trivial to run around in the open as a solo player, as long as you're smart about finding cover when you need it. Keeping your distance should be pretty easy too, you should be able to run around in the back of the arena mostly unopposed.

So I am at the settlement and looking at the "Check progress" and nothing is unlocked. In order to do it, are those the main missions? I have not really figured out the flow here.
Are you just starting out? Yes, main missions will unlock settlement progress. Specifically, you're looking for settlement missions--there are two types of main missions, ones that give you SHD tech and ones that upgrade your settlement. The map will tell you which is which when you hover over the mission marker. I made the mistake initially of not knowing there was a difference, so if you find yourself finishing a mission and still not unlocking settlement upgrades that's probably the reason.

I use G36 cause game simply won't drop anything else for me lol I use optimist and allegro on it. I use compensated, on the ropes, unstoppable force and patience.

Been playing this with Neutral Lighting turned On. Wow. With thunderstorms and Volumetric Fog at Max the game oozes atmosphere, quite literally. The weather effects in the game are really pretty good. Apart from my only quibble being the occasionally dodgy enemy placements/spawning I can't really be too critical of the game at all. Plenty to do, lots to tinker with. Hours of fun.

Fill'Er up and On the Ropes are great.

With Fill'Er up just empty LMG then swap to AR and empty that ,then swap back to full LMG. Repeat.

What are Unmarked SHD Supplies rewards from projects?

I think that's it! Thanks!

You only need to keep your highest GS stuff in your inventory and don't have to actually equip it??? God what have I been doing with my life... It would be nice if the game said that somewhere, I could've saved myself a lot of headaches.

They definitely upped the difficulty on the last encounter of Tidal Basin. Ran it on hard this morning and it took my group 4 tries to finish it.

Also - tried out the LVOA today since I can’t for the life of me get a good MK17 drop. LVOA is actually not bad! I like the bigger mag size. Only downside is firing the gun requires a shitload of clicking.

So when Sekiro came out I took a break from D2 in order to play it. Finished Sekiro last night and came back to D2 (on PC) and now matchmaking is basically useless. I’m halfway through the story and I can’t find a single soul to play a story mission with. Did the community drop off that quickly or is everyone just doing endgame stuff now?

You are right,my mistake,there are 2 on each...anyway,finally made it, grouped with 2 persons with mics so that helped a lot and after 3 tries,we did it...

They've certainly upped the ante on the drones from Div1!

200+ hours in the game and I've never seen that drone 0_o

Is there a place to find it or is it just random?
what the fuck, 120 hours and i have never seen this
Wait, really?

In WT1-WT4, there are a few that run routes in various districts. One ran a patrol surrounding the Campus, and there was another that would do a loop along one of the highways by Foggy Bottom. I know there was one on the east side too, but I don't remember which district specifically (Judiciary Square?). Weirdly, I was going to say that I haven't seen a single one since hitting WT5, but I think that's because districts aren't really invaded anymore unless you still have weekly invasion missions to run (and I'm not sure it's the same as when those districts were initially invaded in WT1).

Also: yo shoot the red propeller mounts, those are weak points too!

Also also: you can actually see one of the drones up close in a tent just before the first antiviral container in Tidal Basin. I didn't try shooting it to see if the weakpoints exploded, though.

I haven't had any problem getting groups from 27 to GS 456 the last week and a half. I think I had to wait 5 minutes once at worst?

Are you very low level?

It was my first time too lol!
I've read they only appear in the invaded area of the map and will be a ? on the map. This was West End after clearing Federal Emergency Bunker.

Ended up being 2 in the same day as one jumped in the party when a group of randoms and I was clearing a level 4 control point. Actually helped us as it cleared out some Outcasts too:)

Video should start just before it spawns:

Awesome thanks, I was more in a panic thinking wtf is this the first time than actually looking for weak points hits :)

I got one last night it's black tusk only in the invaded area. Once you flip the invaded area it cannot appear. Basically keep the area invaded and run area events
I completed the weekly invasion last week and these appeared for me over the weekend. Actually scrap that, I would've been in someone else's instance from matchmaking for a daily beforehand.

doesnt feel like it. probably you havent tried thr harder difficulty with 4man when TB launched?

I rember that TB patch weekend, my friends already cleared it once so they were helping me clear it and I just change it to challenge mode for the kicks. :<
we all were wearing unoptimize gears, just mainly gears for gs 500. lol it was tough but the main concern was the robodogs just 1shotting us with the snipe. we went at it for 4 hrs just trying to clear the last area. I just up and just left for dinner and one of my friend just went at it for another 2hrs lol. the other two quit but rejoined and finally cleared. those 2 that rejoined got ptsd and will not join challenge mode for a while, even after me and my friend (the friend that stayed and went at it for 2 more hrs) were dps spec'ed now.

We've both been duoing challenge for a week now. Now even we both felt duo'ing is too easy due to not enough enemy so couple days ago we start matchmaking to get a full party going so that more enemy spawn. friend said, if the pug are bad it will make up for a better challenge. LOL

The obvious next step step when they come back is to do Roosevelt Island on challenging. 💀

I just got a decently rolled P416. Gonna use it for a while until I can find a god roll ACR-E. That gun is just unbeatable in accuracy and stability. Having lots of fun with my AR + skills build atm. Not optimized yet (and I’m nog sure what gear to go after), but having skills on a low cooldown is great. I’m rocking a 10 seconds cooldown Pulse with the Spotter perk on the helmet for the 10% damage increase for my teammates and a Defender Drone on a 13 seconds cooldown (6 seconds when I manually disable it) to be invincible for half a minute. I’m still trying to get that duration up, but gotta find to right gear pieces with Capacity on it. Prolly can crack the 40+ seconds with another Capacity increase.

I have yet found any P416 that can beat my pretty good roll SOCOM mk16. The only AR that can beat the roll is an AKM but I cannot for my life find extended mag for this AR. the mk16 i have is my current best AR with the +10mag.

me and my friend already beat RI challenge, invaded and non invade on duo. need to do it in 4 man.

Last friday, we tried duo'ing lincoln memorial on heroic. God the reds are so spongey. My gears was spec'ed to kill elites, so reds and veteran takes a clip or 2 to kill but in heroic it takes like nearly 3 clip for red. i was out of ammo quick on just the beginning fight. 2nd area, more tough.
doesnt help that the enemy ai is still super aggresive make it hard to stay in cover and with the limited option for covers in the beginning.

think I need to make another build that is gear more toward weap dmg instead of dmg to elite for heroic.

Dumb question: can I only share equipment when I'm group leader? I tried giving some weapons to a buddy who just started the game and the option to drop the item was greyed out/not possible. I was level 24 or something at the time, he was level 8 or 9 at the time. I was trying to give him something level 14 I think for use down the line.

You shouldn't have to be. The item needs to have the little left/right arrows on the top left, though, I believe. If it doesn't have that, it's not tradeable.

The pulse was the first skill I tried (it was awesome in TD1) but it sucked balls, has it been buffed or will I need specific gear to make it worthwhile?
The only way to make them worthwhile is investing through SP and some of the skill mods for Pulse (Radius, for instance).

However, that kind of investment is better off for DPS builds since SP and skill builds are in a pretty bad state

Its best waiting for Massive to fix the skills at base level

he has to be present when the gear drop thus making it shareable. any gear you have already before he join cant be shared. and it doesnt matter who's lead or not for the gear to be shareable. it only matter who's world it is so that it drop x lv or x wt gs stuff.

Hello. I just hit level 30 and I'm through 2 of the initial 3 Strongholds. What becomes my gameplay/advancement loop after I finish the 3rd Stronghold and unlock the ability to go through World Tiers?
