NewsVideo Game Updates & Patch Notes

The Division Update 1.8.2 is now available with 2 new legendary missions and Shields

The Division’s 1.8.2 patch has arrived. With it, the promised two legendary missions become active, including the new Shields commendations. The Shield accomplishments if you all know will award you with a badge, audio log, and an encrypted shield cache. It will be quite a welcome in Division 2, so you better grab all the commendations possible.

The cache contains one exotic, two classified gear pieces, 5000 div techs, 2000 Phoenix credits and the most favorite nowadays, three cipher keys. We have already covered lots of things for the 1.8.2 patch.

For the first four Shields, are pretty straightforward and do not involve any severe PVP content. Instead, it’s all about PVE. However, as the others come, expect their difficulty to be harder, meaning there will be needed a few PVP actions.

One of the most necessary updates concerning player’s satisfaction is the new two legendary missions. They will fulfill the missing piece of hunger between the players, as some of The Division players are pushed to only do PVE content at most.

The developers have published the official patch notes and you, can find them below:

The first four shields available on June 14th are:

  • Shepherd – Unlock the Base of Operations.
  • Hazard – Clear 25 landmarks in the Dark Zone.

Predator’s Mark

Set Bonus (6 pieces):

The Predator’s Mark ignores the Status Effect Immunity of NPCs.
