The Division 2 rolls out update 8.5

 

Today, The Division 2 has been patched to address various bugs and balancing issues. Update 8.5 is now live in Tom Clancy’s The Division 2, so players will hopefully have a much smoother experience when exploring the streets of Washington, D.C.

In particular, certain NPC behavious has been addressed to be more balanced across the game. The League UI has also been updated to be more intuitive. In terms of bugs, the patch addresses numerous issues relating to weapons, rewards, UI and missing missions.

You can see the full patch notes below, courtesy of Ubisoft’s forums.

Poison Status Effect:

Leaderboards
