Love some of these pictures that really capture the abandoned nature of TD2's DC. Really impressive stuff.

As many others have echoed in the comments, we've got your back, Agent. You're in friendly territory here.

Music Of The Division

Comment

Reddit Gold well deserved. Fantastic post. Video game soundtracks and scores can be so easily overlooked during gameplay but are so important for tone, aesthetic, and the cohesive experience.

Thanks for the in-depth look at some of the sounds of The Division as well as the impressive list of recommendations. I'll be keeping this thread bookmarked for sure.

P.S. Full OSTs and individual music tracks from various Ubisoft games can also be found on our UBILOUD channel.

Indeed. To each their own. Thanks for the feedback here, everyone!

This looks suspicious.

If you are suspicious that this player may have been cheating, please submit a Report to Ubisoft Support, and include as much information as you can including those screenshots. From there we'll take the appropriate actions.

As a side note, I appreciate that you didn't come on here hard and fast to try and make a public hackusation. Oh, and Welcome to the forums!
This conversation seems to be in a similar vein as the post-mission readout. While there are definitely some that might use the information available to be more toxic, additional information tends to lead to more benefits than drawbacks.

That said, as TimesLostArc brings up, we can definitely talk about some of the more specific pros and cons of having such data available for easy access.

When should you use the crossbow?

For sure - synergy is ideally an addition, not a crutch or compensation (at least in this case).

Please be respectful of other's opinions and gameplay preferences, everyone. This is an insightful thread so far and I would appreciate it if we could keep it that way.

I made this build to prove building is busted

As I've mentioned on other threads talking about builds and the meta... hybrid builds (jack of all trades builds) being among the best and mostly predominant in the meta seems (to me, personally) to be the ideal jumping-off point. With this, each of the different polarized builds give and take from the core of the hybrid - ideally.

MutantCowby, with this video and discussion, has pointed out that hybrids very well may be too strong, with negligible gains for pretty serious losses if you try to specialize, or pretty consistent gains for minimal losses if you just go harder into the hybrid.

To jump off of something MutantCowboy said specifically...
A full red build should have a huge damage advantage, but they just don't. A full yellow build should be beyond any other skill users in terms of effectiveness...

Obviously a lot to respond to here. Thanks for taking the time to write all this up in a (quite frankly gorgeous and) easily legible format. I imagine I'll be reading and rereading this quite a bit while making references in my notes.

Edit: The "untitled" title is deceiving. Any plans to change it?

Edit 2: For future comments, please be sure to mention or restate, at least briefly, the sections or points you agree with.
(And please, for the sake of the thread and scroll wheels everywhere, do not quote comment the entire original post.)
I appreciate the various feedback and anecdotes here everyone. That said, please be respectful of each other's opinions and experiences regarding their time with the game. Topics as complex and nuanced as this seldom have 'right' or 'wrong' answers.

Balance is always a touchy topic, since it fundamentally impacts everyone but can be (in a lot of cases) largely subjective. To that end it can help to have those subjective views from both people who do and do not primarily use whatever the thing is. Please be mindful of this as discussion about balance evolve so we can ultimately cultivate better feedback and less toxic discourse.

On a more personal note, I had an interesting conversation with a player about the Crossbow. The main conceit was that because the Crossbow is the only Spec. weapon that can proc an infusion on the BTSU gloves that it is in a unique spot against the other Spec weapons (giving it a huge bonus from possible synergy). Which, needless to say, I found incredibly fascinating.

Minigun needs a buff

Hold down the button to swap weapons on a controller. [one press to change primary, double tap to change to pistol, hold to equip spec.]

Keep in mind the Minigun also brings a bit of extra tankiness with its use - a little bonus that no other Spec has.

Additionally, if anyone could provide a video of this happening, it would be extremely beneficial.

How would you all say skill builds currently perform against Elite enemies? What are the situations that your skill builds don't feel up to snuff?

Game crashes on main character

Sounds like it may be a file download issue. Try uninstalling the game, updating Uplay, then reinstalling The Division 2. If you're still running into these crashes, please contact Ubisoft Support for additional assistance.

Which is peculiar since there have been no major behavioral changes to the BTSU gloves in that time... I'll try to keep and eye on this topic moving forward.

I was about to ask if it was as impactful now as it was on the PTS - since this is the first I've heard of the self-damage issues since then.

To add to BrokenGamer's answer... the Last Man Battalion is... well, was a Private Military Company that was hired out in NYC during the early stages of the Green Poison outbreak. They were one of the more dangerous factions that your Agent encountered in The Division.

As for the OP, there are definitely some chilling moments. Then you remember that all this is taking place in the hot, humid, muggy Washington DC summer and you thank your lucky stars you can't smell the game too.

I saw this the other day and thought it was crazy cool. I'm glad to see you all think similarly.

So any advice and yeah "Don't" will be ignored.
Be smart, be safe. Best of luck to you.

Thanks for the kind words. I'll be sure to make a note of your feedback - both the positive and the critical.

This is RNG being RNG. Though I will ask, what does it feel the drop rate of the EB is vs. what do you feel it should be?

Alright. I'll be closing this thread for toxicity.

As a reminder, if you find other players in the game that are harassing you (or others), you suspect are cheating, or otherwise are breaking the rules, you are encouraged report them ... Read more
