Read more details below.

What is new in Division 2 1.28?

Difficulty & Directives
When interacting with the lobby elevator, players will be able to select their desired difficulty and directives

  • All Difficulties are selectable: Normal – Legendary
  • For Directives, players are able to select from all 9 released Directives
    • NOTE: Missions and Global Difficulty still have the 5 seasonal directives

The New Summit Experience
Players can now ascend their customized Summit at their own pace.

  • With TU11.1, all players will initially start at floor 1 of The Summit
  • Progress is now saved more frequently at each elevator players encounter
    • Instead of the old Rally Points, now Players will resume where they left on subsequent playthroughs.
    • This means that you can stop at floor 38. Then the next day continue from the elevator at floor 37.
  • After players finish floor 100, on their next Summit attempt they will restart at floor 1
  • NOTE: for coop we save the maximum of your previous checkpoint and your current session
    • Example: player previously had a save at floor 60, they matchmake and finish floor 95 with a group, on their next playthrough the player would continue at the elevator on floor 93.
    • Example: player previously had a save at floor 81, they matchmake and finish floor 34 with a group, on their next playthrough the player would continue at the elevator on floor 81.

Targeted Loot
At any point while in The Summit, players can open the Mega-Map and set their personal Targeted Loot

  • For their allocation players can select from weapon types, gear slots, mods, brands, gear sets.
  • The Targeted Loot selection within Summit is personal (which means each player in a group of 4 could have a different allocation chosen)

Threat Scaling
The higher players climb in The Summit, the more likely they are to encounter tougher enemies.

  • The chance for enemies to spawn as veteran or elite gradually increases per floor.
  • Lieutenant Squads occur more frequently as you ascend The Summit.
  • The Boss floors (10, 20, 30,…,90) feature multiple named hostiles on higher floors.

Additional Gameplay Improvements

  • Added a weekly project for finishing Summit (which along with other rewards grants an Exotic Cache)
  • Added more objective types
  • Quicker laptop interact animation
  • Adjusted spawning of enemies during Hack Terminals objectives
  • Holding SHD Crates is more beneficial
  • Added new UI notifications about Exotic Fireteams, Bosses, etc.


  • Directives now increase the chance for Targeted Loot to drop
    • Since introduced in TU6, Targeted Loot has been influenced by a number of factors (including difficulty).
    • Now with TU11.1, each active Directive adds a small amount to the total drop chance for Targeted Loot.
    • This applies everywhere Directives are present (missions, open world, summit).
    • NOTE: Directives still increase XP as well.
  • Increased cooldown reduction per Skill Part collected with Scavenged Skills Directive.
  • Fixed issue causing Fragile Armor’s broken stacks to behave strangely after dying and being revived.

Targeted Loot

  • Added individual Targeted Loot Allocations for each Gear Set
    • This applies both to the normal rotation and to Summit’s Personal Targeted Loot
    • Ex: Lincoln can have True Patriot


  • Ridgeway’s Pride exotic
    • For first part of exotic quest, parts now drop based on Summit floor numbers and increased drop chance of parts
    • For third part of exotic quest, lowered number of Rogue Agents and Hunters that need to be killed to 2
    • Increased radiuses of Bleeding Edge talent to 15m
    • Increased repair strength of Bleeding Edge talent to 1: 3%, 2: 6%, 3: 12%, 4: 24%, 5: 48% (per bleeding enemy within radius)


  • These PvP balance changes affect both the DZ and Conflict:
    • Decreased overall time to kill by 10%
    • Decreased shotgun damage by 12.5%
    • Increased damage to shields by 25%
  • Fixed issue in Conflict which caused the Firewall specialization’s flamethrower to deal an excessive amount of damage.
