The Division 2 Update Maintenance TODAY: Patch Notes, Server Downtime Schedule and News

The Division 2 servers will be going down this afternoon following an announced on the games latest State of Play live stream last night.

You can watch the new State of Play stream, just below, and if you want to know what the guys touch on, the description on the Reddit page reads:

“Hamish was joined by Fredrik Thylander, ‘The Weapons Guy’, to discuss the Title Update 4, Bullet Registration Issue, Armor Kit Issue, the “Gunner” Specialization, other Specializations and the changes to the Merciless”

Ahead of time the developers have provided some rough patch notes, which can be found further down. Although we imagine the most important fix for players will likely revolve around the new Special Field Research (used to unlock the Gunner).

Originally this update and scheduled maintenance was set to begin, June 20th at 09:30 AM CEST / 03:30 AM EDT / 12:30 AM PDT. This was also intended to last approximately 3 hours.

However, it’s now been delayed until 02:00 PM CEST / 08:00 AM EDT / 05:00 AM PDT. It’s still believed to be 3 hours long.

As with any downtime, prepare for thing to (potentially) take a little bit longer, like it did the other day with the Title Update 4.

Read on to take a look at the new Patch Notes.


  • Special Field Research (to unlock the Gunner)

    • “Foam Party” and “This is Madness” will be updated

  • Will be able to pick up Special Ammo

  • “Texture Issue” fixed for some UI gun icons

  • Addresses “Armor Kit” Issue (aka Medkit Issue) should be fixed (discussed in detail down below)

  • Will remove ability to get Special Ammo from killing wildlife

  • Arm Patch for 1st Week Raid Completion

    • Everyone should have it, but if not contact the FORUM

    • No update on the Bullet Registration yet and will not be addressed with this patch.

    • On top of the above the Reddit thread for the game outlined that earlier this week, the Patch Notes for Title Update 4 were incomplete.

      “They were not exhaustive and that was not intended and will try to be more detailed in the future (missing info discussed in detail down below)” explained Ubisoft.

      So, keep reading for any missing info which might (or might not) interest you.
