Agents,

Here is the list of changes deployed during the PTS update of November 11. Note that all comparative values here are related to what was available in PTS 1, and not the live version. We have also update the Global Patch Note for better comparison with the live version of the game.

Survival game mode (All changes listed here only apply to the Survival mode)


NPCs damage and health have been adjusted to increase their lethality, especially at the beginning of a session:

Increased level 28 NPC health by 25%.
Increased level 29 NPC health by 16%.
Increased level 30 NPC health by 8%.
Increased level 28 NPC damage by 12.5%.
Increased level 29 NPC damage by 8%.
Increased level 30 NPC damage by 4%.


Following our observations on the PTS, we noticed that gearing up in the Dark Zone was faster than expected due to Crafting being too easy to acquire and blueprints costs too low. We have made the following adjustments:

Lowered the material drop rates in the Dark Zone.
High-End crafting costs have been adjusted and made more expensive.
Crafting High-End weapons will now require a Division Tech material.


Removed weapon mods providing the Increased Magazine Size bonus as they could break combat balance against the Hunter.
Reaching Novice Rank will now require a score of 600 instead of 400.

Gameplay


Modified rewards from completing weekly assignments:

Moved 30 Phoenix Credits from the weekly assignment reward to put them inside the weekly assignment cache (the total amount is still the same).
Added one extra High-End Mod inside the weekly assignment cache.


Gear


Named Gear pieces will now have a chance to be acquired in Field Proficiency caches and have been added as a chance to drop on various activities.
D3-FNC has been renamed FrontLine.
Skulls MC gloves: damage bonus has been increased from 10% to 16%.
Swift: Reload Speed bonus has been increased from 15% to 25%.

Weapons


LMGs: Damage to targets out of cover bonus has been slightly reduced for all LMGs of Gear Score 256
MG5: Time to max accuracy has been slightly increased. This means that while firing, max accuracy will be reached a little slower than before.
Urban MDR: “Distracted” will now properly react and give bonus damage on targets with status effects.

Skills

Tactical Link
