The Division 2 Raid Requirements, Group Assigments, and Item Reset Info
Requirements: The Division 2 players who want to participate in Operation Dark Hours will need to be at level 30, have reached World Tier 5, and a Gear Score of 490.
Group Assignments: While the game will not require parties to be a fill eight-man squad to begin the Raid, the overall difficulty will not scale depending on how many players are present. It will always scale up to eight players, so best to get a full party before attempting. For the complete team, there will be two sub-groups/teams, with each containing four players each. The player who creates the Raid group from the social menu will be the designated Raid leader, and will bet he only one who can begin to initiate the Raid.
Item Reset: The Division 2 Raid will have a weekly timer (as is to be expected), with the boss loot dropping once per week. Players can tackle the Raid again, but there will be no additional loot drops until after the in-game timer resets.
That’s a lot of info to take in, no? Agents, get your A game on as Dark Hours will be upon us in just hours!
