The latest free update to hit The Division 2 is out now on Xbox One. Episode 2 – Pentagon: The Last Castle adds new missions that bring the fight for Washington, D.C. to the Pentagon, along with a raft of gameplay updates (including a new loot-targeting system), a new specialization for endgame players, and a Team Elimination PVP mode. Xbox Live Gold members can play The Division 2 for free this weekend, gameplay improvements and all, from October 17 through October 20. Here’s a look at what Episode 2 includes:
Episode 2 takes you to the Pentagon, where the fight continues in solving the ongoing outbreak crisis in Washington D.C. As Agents, you’ll encounter two new main missions set in and underneath the landmark building. After a Division Agent discovers the existence of a perfusion bioreactor – a device capable of replicating a potentially life-saving antivirus – players must fight their way through the flooded, Black Tusk-occupied area around the Pentagon to secure a safe house. It is up to Agents to secure the bioreactor – and with it, all hope – before it falls into the hands of the Black Tusk.
From there, the first new main mission, Pentagon, will take players into the building itself, where they’ll battle through Black Tusk forces to find the entrance to an underground laboratory.
Then, in the second mission at the DARPA Research Labs, they’ll race to stop the Black Tusk from removing the bioreactor through an abandoned network of Cold War-era tunnels.
Both missions are replayable, and are available as early access for Year 1 Pass holders starting October 15. All players will be able to access the Pentagon missions for free starting October 22.
In addition to the main missions, Episode 2 features two Classified Assignments, which are optional side missions that are exclusively available to Year 1 Pass holders. In Marina, Division Agents will investigate a boathouse on the Potomac River – used by the Outcasts to transport weapons and supplies – and seize as many weapons as possible. In Embassy, a helicopter carrying important supplies is shot down by Outcasts and crashes into the Mexican Embassy, pushing players to race against time to rescue the pilot and secure the supplies before the Outcasts show up in force.
The Technician is the fifth specialization for endgame players, packing an Artificer Hive that can buff the power of any deployed skills, whether they belong to the Technician or to allied players. Technician Agents also carry a Maxim 9 sidearm, an EMP grenade mod, and a new signature weapon: The P-017 multi-missile launcher, which can target multiple enemies and fire up to six missiles at once.
The Technician is instantly unlocked with the Year 1 Pass, but available to all players who complete the specialization’s Field Research tasks.
New PVP Mode and Map
Team Elimination mode is coming to The Division 2’s Conflict PVP matches. Two four-Agent teams will square off against each other in best-of-seven battles, with each round ending either when an entire team expires, or the timer does. Joining the new mode is a new Conflict map, Wharf, which lets players battle for an abandoned harbor that features plenty of opportunities to use flanking routes and high ground to get the drop on opponents.
Episode 2 is part of Title Update 6, the biggest batch of gameplay improvements to hit The Division 2 since launch. Developed with community feedback, the updates range from increased stash space and rebalanced gear talents to server changes designed to ensure the Dark Zones are always as populated as possible. One of the most significant changes is the addition of a targeted loot system that lets players pull up the map and see which loot is likely to drop in a given zone or mission, making it easier to find specific loot they might be hunting.
Big changes are also coming to the Dark Zones, the hybrid, PVE/PVP-enabled areas of The Division 2 where players can work together or betray each other for loot. When players enter a Dark Zone, the game will automatically look for a server with a high population, and transfer players (or groups of players) there to ensure an active experience. The Thieves’ Den vendor now carries a better stock of items that rotate regularly, and Dark Zone supply drops will now appear at more locations, guarded by bosses, Black Tusk soldiers, or multiple warring factions.
Other changes include improvements to the crafting system, the return of Expeditions mode (with a new Mastery system that rewards faster completion), major reworks for named items, changes to how branded gear sets work, and much more. For a full rundown, check out this recap of The Division 2’s pre-launch State of the Game livestream.

Get Ready for the Mushroom Wars 2 Competitive Scene
Mushroom Wars 2 is a highly competitive real-time strategy game, where you control handsome little mushroom units. Each battle is short, usually only around five minutes, but it’s a very intensive collision between you and another player. It requires full immersion!
You can prepare yourself by playing the story-driven campaign solo, but none of the computer opponents can compete with the cunning mind of a real human counterpart.
Mushroom Wars 2, a time-proven eSports game, is now available on modern consoles. We asked our community manager for some tips on basic aspects of the game that could be helpful for novice Mushroom Generals.
Attack and Defence
At first glance, the game seems to be all about maths and numbers: IDE with more units should win the battle. But it’s not that simple.
There are defence and attack multipliers, which play a huge role in the game. By getting advantage over your opponent, you can “trade” less units in micro fights.
Ways to increase protection and attack indexes:
– leveling up the building for higher defence
– getting a higher level of morale
– using heroes’ skills, such as Rudo’s Defensive Walls or Ayner’s Rage
– building forges
Since the amount of units in opponents’ buildings is hidden, it’s hard to predict if you succeed in an attack, but not impossible. Luckily, there is a bar at the top of the match screen, which shows the sum of troops each player has. It won’t tell you the exact number in each building, but it could give an average value by dividing by the amount of buildings they own.
Morale might be the most important aspect of the game that prevents the snowball effect. The morale is shown right below the troops amount bar at the top of the battle screen. Levels of morale are visualized with stars.
As it was said before, the more morale you have, the higher attack and defence indexes you get. In addition, the speed of your units is also increasing that affects damage per second coefficient of your army.
What you need to remember: never attack an opponent with two morale levels advantage. It’s very likely that your attack won’t succeed, you’ll just ‘feed’ your enemy and give a free win in most cases.
To increase morale you need to:
– capture buildings
– defend opponent’s attacks
– upgrade buildings
– use some heroes’ active skills
You are losing morale when the following happens:
– your units die on the battlefield
– you lose a building
There is a way to send units much more efficiently in a very tight line, and it’s not cheating! It was a bug in the original Mushroom Wars but became a feature in the sequel.
We call this snaking. Snaking can make your attacks more powerful and unpredictable.
To perform snaking you need to:
- Choose a building you want to send units from and make sure it has less than 35 units inside.
- Choose a building you want to send units to by holding the right bumper button.
- Press the B button as fast as you can on the requested building.
We hope that these tips will help you to show your real skill in 1v1 or 2v2 battles. Good luck newborn Mushroom General!
Mushroom Wars 2
Mushroom Wars 2 is an award-winning sequel to the critically acclaimed RTS hit built upon the core gameplay experience that made the original Mushroom Wars so enjoyable.
Learning the ropes of mushroom warfare is easy with simple and intuitive controls as well as gamepad support. But the journey to become a fearsome commander requires fast reflexes, an eye for strategy, and the ability to oversee up to thousands of units at once.
Once you’re confident in your skills, putting your mushroom army against other players is the best way to improve. Mushroom Wars 2 comes tournament-ready, with a league system and ranked matches that make for fierce competition. In addition replay feature, and spectator mode make it easy to enter the competitive scene. Just want to enjoy a friendly skirmish with your friends? Custom games let you try out new strategies with up to three friends in free-for-all or team-based matches.
Whether you are battling enemy hordes in the the depths of the single-player campaign, or competing against your friends in various multiplayer modes, Mushroom Wars 2 provides intense, fast-paced short-session battles!
