Infuriating. Leave it to fucking Ubisoft.
I don't get why are people so hung up on not being able to play story missions on hard for the first time while leveling.
If you want challenge while leveling, there's tons of challenging content. Play the story missions when you're two levels below recommended if you want them to be hard. Play the side missions that are always on your level and can be pretty hard from lvl 15 onwards.

If that somehow doesn't satisfy you, there's a whole endgame awaiting you where you can have so much challenge it will make you sick.

Two questions...

1-Is there a way to disable the calls for help? I have set my party to private but I'm still getting them?
2-Are the masks only used in the Dark Zone or do the stats still count when you are out in the city?

1. Settings -> Gameplay -> all the way at the bottom -> On Call Status -> Off

2 - mask stats count everywhere, but you only see it visually equipped in the contaminated places (like DZ)

For 1: go into your map, go to the SHD tab (the one with the ! sign) and at the bottom left it tells you the button to hold to disable/enable on call.

Couple questions:

Is there any reason to go to your death location? Do you drop anything when you die?

And, is there any indication on the map or otherwise that you have found all the resources at a resource spot?

I have a legendary holster with "reload a weapon from empty reloads all weapons" talent on it.

Can I transfer this to a higher holster via the recalibration station?

I have a higher Holster that doesn't have a talent and it won't let me select the legendary item to consume to transfer it.

Does it have to be an item that already as a talent on it?
Quoting for new page.

Does anyone know the answer to this please?

The story missions are the primary reason why some people want to play this game. They were the only form of content I enjoyed in the first game.

You can't just replace one form of content with another. Side missions and endgame content are side missions and endgame content.

The game can still be good if those other forms of content are good. But even if this ends up being the greatest game of all time, locking a slightly harder than trivial version of a game's main fucking missions behind a trivial version will never not be an absolutely fucking massive deal to the people looking forward to it.

It's not like this is some Ninja Gaiden deal where normal difficulty would effectively be necessary for almost every player anyway.

Weird night of play. Had the game crash and at times, whenever I start up the game, it will not stay in full screen mode. Always goes windowed.

Hyena & Outcast strongholds complete - will break into WT1 tomorrow.

Why do I have the feeling the game has only just begun?

Don't know if it's just my PS4 Slim, but ever since I began playing The Division 2
  • I've had at least one or two hard crashes
  • First one being The Division 2 freaking out, going to cancel the app, getting stuck at 0% and never sending so I turned off my console. The console itself didn't load and was stuck at a blue loading screen the wave thing moving, so I had to hard reset my console.
  • Anyone else feel like The Division 2 might be affecting their consoles?

The general tone is ass? What do you mean?

Either way, I guess I disagree. I don’t think any of this is “ass”.
There's no consistency to the tone. Parts of it are super serious and then you'll do a mission where
the President is running around with a machine gun lmao

But I'm really not playing this game for the plot so I can forgive it.

Can others on PC check their install folder and tell me the approx size? Mine is 54.5GB and that's after I downloaded a 10GB update.

Finally had the game validate some corrupt files and then got hit with a huge update. I was only 45 before and I'm wondering if that was the main cause for my issues all day even though I validated 3 different times. Just finally had a solid hour session with ZERO crashes! Finally finished my first main mission.

Mine is 43.6gb too, and I also validated about an hour ago. Once I ran the validation it lasted an hour before it crashed rather than 10 mins, however its back to about 10 now.

So it looks like it's other region files in the hunter folder, files ending with RU, ES, FR, IT, MX, BR, JP, SA. They all account for the close to 11GB of extra data. WTF, I didn't tell it to do anything regarding updating languages or whatever those are for.

Wasnt going to play more tonight but I did this random Blue ? mission and it was really neat. Basically I think I encountered one of the Hunters, or whatever theyre called lol.

How do I unlock or craft a larger magazine for SMGs?

I think so. It needs to be the same type. Holster. And it needs the skit to put it in. So yeah yellow items have that skill type slot so purple and below probably wont work

I thought UPlay challenges were bugged since they did not show up for me immediately last night. There is progress now, but I am still uncertain if it is real-time. Progress reflected in both app and in-game.

I've been having a good time with the game so far as well. Only bug was I got stuck in some random corner I rolled into. Used the cover system to snake my way out along the wall.
I checked again and see there is progress now so that's something. Weird.
