The Division patch 1.2 will introduce new Dark Zone bracket, High End loot drops, and bug fixes

The next major patch for The Division looks to help increase High End loot drops, introduces a new Dark Zone bracket, and more.


Ubisoft has revealed changes it’s making to The Division in the upcoming patch 1.2, which includes several buffs and absolutely no nerfs this time around.

During its latest State of the Game Twitch Stream, Ubisoft Massive said patch 1.2 was “generous” as better quality loot will become available across a variety of ways, including supply drops, activities, the Falcon Lost Incursion, Hard and Challenge modes and throughout the Dark Zone. High End Performance Mods will also be reduced, which will certainly be greeted with much praise by Agents across Manhattan.

The Dark Zone will also be receiving a new bracket for players with a DZ Rank of 201 and above, which Agents will be able to pick up loot with a Gear Score of 204 to 240 while Division Tech drops will only be High End. As a result of the new Dark Zone bracket, Agents should plan on taking on tougher enemies, which will now fall within level 32 - 34.

Patch 1.2 will introduce a number of bug fixes, including fixes for The One is None and Reckless bugs and instances where mission doors wouldn’t open and Base of Operations wings not unlocking when they should.

Lastly, Ubisoft Massive hinted at PvE activities receiving “a lot of love” in patch 1.2, although it didn’t go into specific details as to what we should expect.

Patch 1.2 currently has no release date, but it’s expected to be released by the end of May.
