Named Bosses are so called Elites, the strongest type of enemies you will encounter in Tom Clancy’s The Division. Most of the time they are accompanied by other enemies, however you will want to focus the big fish with the yellow health and armor bar – the named one.

Farming these rare enemies is currently one of the most effective and diversified ways to obtain new (named) items and Gear Sets as a drop is guaranteed. Besides normal loot, they also drop Phoenix Credits.

Bullet King

Bullet King

Because the concept around these special NPCs wasn’t really finished at the game’s release, a glitch allowed players to farm them endlessly because there wasn’t a noticeable respawn cooldown. Especially Bullet King, a Named Enemy of the Rikers, became famous overnight and even got his own entry on Wikipedia!

Fortunately, the problem got fixed and Update 1.4 introduced a working and really enjoyable free roaming experience.

All Named Boss Locations

These rare mobs can be found in the Open World (also known as Light Zone; respawn every 4 hours) and inside the Dark Zone (respawn every 10 minutes), but are also seen in story missions like Joe Ferro, the head of the Cleaners. The spawn locations of all Named Bosses are marked in the map below. In addition, the arrow’s direction tells you whether they are located in the underground (down), or at ground level (up) of Manhattan.

In case you still can’t find them by using the map, you might want to have a look at the following video to get an idea for the surrounding environment.

    The map marker for Chains is not correct. It should be a little further to the right, directly below the safehouse.

    Anyone know what missions are required to spawn each of the bosses? I haven’t been able to locate this info except for Bulletking. His requires: Supply Drop Times Square Winter Supplies

      There is no such a requirement, all of them should be there from the beginning?

        That is not true.
        I hears on Youtube that you need to do all the “Side-missions” in every district to get them to spawn in said district.
        I might be wrong… i did all missioins leveling up so i they have been there all the time for me.

    the 4 hour spawn time is far too long considering the rare drop rates. I think an hour to an hour and a half is a good spawn timer.
