Ubisoft Massive is starting The Division Global Event Assault today, and as the headline plainly states, it modifies assault values, and lots more. Check out the complete info below which also lists down the rewards and lots more.
Here’s the schedule, and the how it all works (via Reddit).
The Division Global Event Assault:
- Assault (Global Modifier)
- Always active; All Agent damage is increased at close range.
- Crucial Assault (Only active in the Assault Playlist)
- Assault behavior, plus all enemy damage is increased at longer range
- Major Assault (Only active in the Assault Playlist and only for groups)
- Crucial Assault behavior, plus Agent damage increases when close to team members, enemy damage increases when apart from team members.
Tips and Tricks
The Global Modifier makes the missions easier – go close and burn the NPCs down, that works also very well on Legendary difficulty – but be careful, that the NPCs don´t down you with their melee attacks.
The Global Modifier will be active everywhere in The Division (also Survival and in Last Stand) but ONLY against NPCs. This modifier has NO impact in PVP.
Crucial Assault and Major Assault will challenge the way you play the missions and you will have to adapt the routine that you have in the missions. The usual – “i fight from the distance” does not really work, because the NPCs will hit you like a truck and unless you have a decent amount of toughness and armor – they will insta-down you most of the time. So go close, use the proximity damage buff and kill them that way.
Major Assault is a group modifier that gives you a buff when you are close together (you will see a white line between the agents) that helps you against the NPCs and is NOT harder than Crucial Assault. Just keep that in mind and check what Modifier is active.
You can select the Crucial – and Major Assault Modifier in these missions:
- Queens Tunnel Camp
- Russian Consulate
- General Assembly
- Grand Central Station
- Falcon´s Lost
