Tom Clancy's The Division Gets Trailer Revealing Update

The update for Tom Clancy's The Division gives players the opportunity to unlock Shields as well as rewards that can be used in Tom Clancy's The Division 2.

Ubisoft posted a video on Friday giving an overview of some updates that were made to Tom Clancy’s The Divison, but the entire update is huge. Even better, players can unlock exclusive rewards that will be used in the upcoming Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 due out next March.

Shields are a new feature that is available. They are a group of twelve collectibles that will reward both new and returning players for completing challenges throughout the game. Earning a Shield will give the player a Shield Cache that contains a selection of valuable items and currency bundles. Earning multiple Shields will unlock the rewards that can be used in Tom Clancy’s The Division 2.  Only four Shields will be available to unlock at first, but an additional shield will be available every month.

The first four shields available on June 14th are:

  • Shepherd – Unlock the Base of Operations.
  • Hazard – Clear 25 landmarks in the Dark Zone.
  • Deadeye – Complete all weekly HVT’s within a week.
  • Avenger – Take out 10 named bosses in Manhattan, 10 in the Dark Zone and 10 in the West Side Piers area.

There are also twelve new Patches available and twelve new audio logs that can be unlocked by completing the corresponding Shield Challenges. The Phoenix Credit Limit has also been increased from 5,000 to 8,000.

There are many more changes included in this update including:


  • Madison Field Hospital
  • General Assembly


  • Classified Gear
    • Predator’s Mark
      • Set Bonus (6 pieces):
        • Hitting 10 shots without switching targets now applies The Predator’s Mark which makes the target bleed for 50% of the damage already done by those bullets. The Damage over time to the target is increased by 15% for every 3000 Stamina and can critically hit the target. When at 9000 Stamina the damage over time bonus is increased by an additional 120%. The Predator’s Mark ignores the Status Effect Immunity of NPCs.
    • Path of the Nomad
      • Set Bonus (6 pieces):
        • 50% chance to have no cool-down for Path of the Nomad when playing solo. Take 60% less damage for 10 seconds after Path of the Nomad is triggered.
    • Tactician’s Authority
      • Set Bonus (6 pieces):
        • Improved Tactician’s Authority stacks will no longer reset when using elevators. Stacks will now correctly be lost upon activation of Recovery Link.

      • Set Bonus (4 pieces):
        • Reclaimer support stations will now self-destruct when the set is unequipped.


  • Support Stations with the highest health per tick will now take priority when in range of several stations.
  • Fixed an issue that would cause items to temporarily disappear from the inventory after having shared an item.
