The Division 2 Patch 1.7

After a few hours of downtime earlier today, The Division 2 is back up and running alongside its latest update. Patch 1.7 can be downloaded on PlayStation 4 now, and it promises to fix a list of remaining bugs and pesky gameplay issues.

You can find the full patch notes below:


  • Various improvements to reduce frame drops.


  • Changed the Clan Member UI colour to not conflict with Elite enemies.
  • Fixed an issue where players Clan XP contributions could stop registering.


  • Changed Apparel Store purchase confirmations to a button hold action.
  • Reduced the UI flickering effect present in the menu.
  • Fixed a visual bug that would incorrectly display a grey duplicate backpack reward when opening apparel caches.
  • Fixed the menu distortion animation playing twice under certain circumstances.


  • Fixed abnormal skill behaviour when equipping a skill after having switched to a grenade.
  • Fixed instances of skills going on cool down when deploying a shield.
  • Fixed an issue where multiple Cluster Seeker Mines could be deployed in short succession.


  • Fixed an issue where donating a weapon with mods attached would remove the mods from the players inventory.


  • Fixed daily and weekly missions not resetting for offline players.
  • Improvements made to Co-op health scaling.
  • Fixed an issue where armour/gear scaling would not take World Tiers into account.
  • Fixed skill damage incorrectly being scaled twice for low level players joining a high level group.
  • Fixed players potentially becoming stuck on the “Meet The Division Coordinator” objective after having played in Co-op.
  • Fixed players potentially becoming stuck on the “Meet with Odessa Sawyer” objective.

Open World

  • Fixed an issue that would allow players to upgrade neutral control points.

Side Missions

  • Fixed an issue that would cause low level players to gain unintended amounts of XP by completing side missions with a high level group member.


  • Fixed “Navigate Categories” and “Mark as Junk” being bound to the same button in some occurrences.

The update weighs in at around 2.3GB on Sony's system. This is pretty much The Division 2's first 'big' patch since the game launched earlier in the month, so it's nice to see Massive Entertainment cleaning things up ahead of the title's big content drop on the 5th April.
