The world of “Tom Clancy’s The Division 2” is expanding with the release of the second episode of its postlaunch plan. The new content, titled “Pentagon: The Last Castle,” features two missions, in which players go after the Black Tusks in the military headquarters while the second job has players exploring a DARP Research Lab.

Both of them continue the main story dealing with the fate of President Ellis. Players will be chasing after a perfusion bioreactor that could hold the key to curing the green poison, the disease that turned the United States into a postapocalyptic hellscape.

Along with the new missions, players will have the opportunity to check out the Technician Specialization. The class has a P-017 missile launcher as its signature weapon. It locks on and hits up to six enemies. It has a Maxim 9 and artificer hive as its respective sidearm and skill variant. While the technician’s grenade mod is an EMP, which is helpful against drones. The new specialization joins the gunner as the second postlaunch class.

In addition, Ubisoft adds two classified assignments to the mix. One takes place in the Marina near the Potomac River. Another mission is focused on the Mexican Embassy in Washington, D.C.

Effective October 15, Year 1 pass holders will instantly unlock the Technician Specialization. Players who do not own the Year 1 pass can unlock the Technician Specialization by completing a series of objectives. Additional rewards, including a signature weapon skin, are also available once the specialization is unlocked.

The latest specialization includes:

  • Signature Weapon: P-017 Launcher: a multi-missile launcher. Agents can lock-on and hit up to six enemies (depending on available ammo). With a simple push of a button, six missiles are unleashed to seek out their targets.
  • Sidearm: Maxim 9
  • Skill Variant: Artificer Hive
  • Grenade Mod: EMP Grenade
  • Classified Assignments (Exclusive only to Year 1 Pass holders): Agents can take on two new Classified Assignments at a Boathouse and Embassy.
  • Marina: Outcasts have been moving weapons and supplies into a boathouse on the Potomac River, which was used as a transport depot during the outbreak to move assets to the Potomac Center and Roosevelt Island. Agents must investigate and seize all the weapons they can find.
  • Embassy: A Joint Task Force helicopter filled with supplies was shot down by the Outcasts and crashed through the roof of the Mexican Embassy in Washington D.C. Agents will be tasked to locate the helicopter rescue the pilot and secure the supplies before the Outcasts get there.
The latest title update also brings a number of fixes and improvements, as well as a brand new PvP mode.


Major fixes and improvements


Players will see significant game improvements in The Division 2 effective October 15. These improvements were developed thanks to community feedback on game forums and following last month’s Elite Task Force workshop, during which community members visited Ubisoft Massive studio in Malmö, Sweden to share thoughts and ideas about the game. Fixes and improvements include:

  • Targeted Loot
  • Named Items overhauled
  • Crafting Changes
  • Recalibration Changes
  • Filled Brands
  • Inventory Management 2.0
  • Increased stash space
  • Rebalance of talents and weapons
  • Dark Zone Server Transfers
  • Updated Thieves’ Den Vendor
  • Dark Zone Supply Drops Changes
  • Occupied Dark Zone Ambushes
  • Normalization in Dark Zone changes
  • Conflict: Loadout Selection during map voting
  • Bonus armor visualization increased
  • Conflict: End of Match Rewards changes
  • Stored tutorials
As part of Ubisoft’s commitment to the overall fixes and improvements to the game, The Division 2’s second raid will be delayed. The additional time allows the development team to focus on the overall quality of The Division 2, while developing a raid that will better meet the standards of its players.


New conflict PvP mode


The new Team Elimination PvP mode pits two teams of four into a best-of-seven round battle in D.C. Rounds will end once an entire team has been eliminated or time has expired. Team Elimination provides a teamwork focused tactical experience for players. Team Elimination takes effect on October 15.

New map: The “Wharf”

The new map ‘Wharf’ is on par with previous PvP maps in terms of size and takes players to an abandoned fishing harbor. It offers tactical gameplay opportunities, through flanking routes and raised positions.

Here's what DARPA is all about. This will give a better idea on what DARPA LABS does there. As seen here:
