It’s again time for maintenance, namely tomorrow Thursday, July 28th. Besides one bugfix, there will be a gameplay update that will improve the loot system in The Division’s Underground, including better rewards in regard to old Gear Sets, increased drop rates for Named NPCs and higher quality gear when completing multiple phase operations.

As usual, the servers will shut down at 09:00 AM CEST / 03:00 AM EDT / 00:00 AM PDT. Estimated downtime is approximately 3 hours. Follow the official post for more information about the maintenance status.

We are still gathering data for a “new loot table” after update 1.3, so if you want to join us in providing some data after your runs, especially after tomorrow’s update, it would be highly appreciated!

You can find the full changelog down below.

PS: There will be no new State of the Game episode tomorrow!


  • Fixed a bug where players could initiate 1 Phase Operations in Heroic difficulty by pressing a combination of buttons on their input device.
  • Rewards from Underground Operation Directives will now also include all gear sets from Updates 1.1 and 1.2 and you have a chance to receive additional loot when completing Operations with 4+ Directives.
  • Rewards from Underground Sealed Caches will now include all weapon types as well as all Underground and Update 1.3 gear sets.
  • Named NPCs in the Underground now have increased drop rates across all difficulties and doing multiple phase operations will give you a better chance at higher quality gear.
