The Division PTS 3 Going Live Soon, Patch Notes Released

More changes inbound for PTS players.

Posted By | On 02nd, Feb. 2017

The Division’s PTS is currently undergoing maintenance but will be live soon for the newest version of update 1.6 and Last Stand.

There are numerous changes inbound, especially to Last Stand. The PvP mode sees Downed health being reduced by 50 percent, thus making it easier to kill enemies who are crawling around.

Normalization of stats led to way too much Armour Damage Mitigation and thus it’s been reduced to 35 percent (originally 75 percent). Major and minor bonuses are also not normalized, meaning they’ll work just like in regular PvE or the Dark Zone.

Numerous changes have been made to Exotics as well including Caduceus, Historian, Tenebrae and Medved. As promised, the SEEKR gear set has been removed from the PTS. Perhaps most interesting is that Legendary difficulty missions now have one checkpoint to make it slightly less unfair for player. More consumables will also drop from LMB3 NPCs.

You can check out the full patch notes here to glean the changes. What are your thoughts on the PTS thus far? Let us know in the comments.
