Tom Clancy’s The Division has received its newest Global Event as of yesterday with Blackout. Starting from April 23rd, the event will be live until April 30th. Check out the trailer below for a quick summary of what to expect (including new weapon skins and masks).
The modifier this time around is Blackout. Agents now fire Shock Ammo which can stun enemies; shooting and running will build up a charge meter, which increases the damage dealt. Extreme Blackout can be applied to kill enemies with Overcharged melee hits but missing will see you and your allies stunned. Then there’s Total Blackout, applicable to groups, which includes Extreme Blackout and will see your charge meter deplete faster near teammates.
As with previous Global Events, four Classified Gear Sets will be up for grabs – D3-FNC, DeadEye, Striker’s Battlegear and Tactician’s Authority – and thanks to changes made for loot drops, it’s now possible to buy Superior Caches for each specific set. This will help combat the RNG of previous events by quite a bit.
