The third Global Event, Strike, is returning to The Division!

Start: January 14th, 08:00 AM UTC
End: January 21st, 08:00 AM UTC

The following modifiers will be live during Strike:

Strike—Always active. Enemies explode when killed.
Pre-emptive Strike—Strike behavior, plus sustained incoming damage triggers a small explosion on Agents.
Tactical Strike—Pre-emptive Strike behavior, plus enemies are marked using Strike explosions. When killed, they damage remaining enemies. Ally-to-Ally explosion damage is increased.

Agents will have another opportunity to earn the following Classified sets:

Classified Path of the Nomad
Classified D3-FNC
Classified Predator's Mark
Classified Banshee's Shadow

The event works the same way Strike has in the past. The Classic, Rider, and Jungle masks will be available alongside vanity rewards. Please note if you've already earned Strike's weapon skins and vanity outfit, leaderboard caches will not yield new rewards.

Awesome! I had read somewhere else that it was Blackout again. I am happy to see this one return as I need Banshee for 2 of my characters so that all 4 characters will have all 14 classified gear sets. I used to deconstruct all Banshee since I don't PvP but my OCD set the goal to have all loadouts on all characters. This should easily finish it up.

I really hope UBI likes my idea of running the GE's back to back to back (...) leading up to the pre-release date a week before general release. That would both drum up interest as a lot of people only play GE's anymore, as well as let those late to the game a chance to finish out all their gear sets before TD2 releases.

When is Ambush going to return? That's my question. We've already had other events run at least twice since we last had that one.

Can this event be done solo? I only play solo.

You can play solo, it's not optimal but you will still be able to earn GE credits.

With these you can purchase the Classified Caches which has a chance at set items and exotics.

GE credits during the Global Event can be earned a number of ways; defeating bosses in the open world as well as in the DZ, completing missions as well as weekly and daily HVT missions through the vendors.

I hope this helps :)
