    The Division Phoenix Shield Launches Tomorrow

    It is time for a new Shield in The Division! We are excited to announce the sixth Shield, Phoenix, live tomorrow across all platforms!

    The Phoenix Shield is linked to Expansion 2: Survival, so we are also making Survival free for all players for a limited time – starting tomorrow, August 16th to Wednesday, August 22nd.

    Found in the first tab of the Dossier, Division Shields are a group of unique commendations that reward both long term and new players for completing very specific challenges across The Division. Remember to check back in, since an additional Shield will become available every month for you to unlock.


    • New! Phoenix - Extract 5 items, survive for 5 hours, and kill 5 Hunters in Survival
    • Sacred - Complete 10 phases, get to level 10 and kill 10 Hunters in the Underground
    • Shepherd - Unlock the Base of Operations
    • Avenger - Eliminate 10 Named bosses in Manhattan, 10 in the Dark Zone, and 10 in West Side Piers
    • Deadeye - Complete all weekly High Value Targets
    • Hazard - Clear 25 landmarks in the Dark Zone


    With every Shield unlocked, you will receive the following rewards:

    • One Audio Log
    • One Patch with the relevant Shield Icon
    • One Shield Cache
    • One Exotic Weapon
    • Two Classified Gear Set pieces
    • 2,000 Phoenix Credits
    • 500 D-Tech
    • Three Cypher Keys


    As Agents collect Shields, you will be placed in a tiered system. The more Shields earned in The Division, the higher the tier you reach, the more rewards you will receive in The Division 2. A higher tier grants players more rewards:

    • Tier 1 - Weapon Skin
    • Tier 2 - Outfit and Patch
    • Tier 3 - Emote and Gear Dye
    • Tier 4 - Taunting Emote and Backpack Trophy

    Be safe out there in the blizzard, Agents!

    PHOENIX Shield Question

    Would 4 hour 15 min sessions in survival count as the 5 hours in survival or are the survival session hours rounded up/down?

    Never mind. Gamrinsanitr just confirmed in his SURVIVAL stream that the time includes mins and is not rounded to the hour

    Been playing survival for 5+ hours, game recognised only 1 hour of play...

    I never played Survival despite having the season pass, however with the introduction of the shield I have been playing just to obtain the shield.

    I have timed myself and I can say I have played more than 5 hours within survival since the shield launched yet the shield only recognises only 1 our of play even though the 5 hunters and extracts have been recorded.

    Can someone from Ubisoft confirm what is needed for the 5-hour playtime when I have already done said task?
