Developer Massive Entertainment seems to be addressing concerns of randomized loot drops in Tom Clancy's The Division 2 with a new update, adding greater transparency about the loot you receive.
Title 6 Update, scheduled to launch just before the looter-shooter's second episode releases this fall, will allow you to target specific loot as you replay missions, complete open-world activities, and tackle the Dark Zone. According to a post on The Division 2's official website, every mission and named zone will feature specific loot associated with it. Areas and missions with targeted loot will drop items as normal, with targeted loot getting a guaranteed chance to drop from named bosses and a smaller chance to be obtainable from all NPCs and containers.
The same loot drop rules apply to the Dark Zone, but be aware that you must extract loot before it's added to your arsenal. Check below for an idea of what targeted loot looks like on the map and in the game world.
The Divison 2's second episode, titled Pentagon: The Last Castle, is scheduled to launch on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One sometime this fall. The looter-shooter's first episode, DC Outskirts: Expeditions, was made public to all owners of The Divison 2 earlier this summer. DC Outskirts: Expeditions added two new main missions and a new Expeditions experience, which introduces weekly, exploration-driven challenges.
In other Division 2 news, Massive outlined its DLC roadmap for the looter-shooter during E3 2019. Currently, The Division 2 has three pieces of post-launch content planned, which sees you heading back to New York City, the setting for the first Division game.
