Over the weekend, Ubisoft gave Tom Clancy’s The Division a big update with patch 1.0.2. Players are going to have to work a little harder to find unique loot, as Named NPCs will no longer respawn after being killed in the Open World. This change is a much-needed update to gameplay and should make loot farming far less prevalent.
The Division’s Dark Zone also received some much-needed changes. Players can now heal other neutral players and fast-travel to any Dark Zone checkpoint. Ubisoft has also seen fit to increase the drop rate for high-end items as well as Phoenix Credits from level 31 and 32 Enemies. All in all, these updates should go some way toward addressing some of the problems players have had with Ubisoft’s open world shooter. You can read the full list of changes at the The Division blog.
