The Division has just kicked off Global Event #3: Strike, bringing back the opportunity to obtain some of the elusive masks. From now until December 18th, Agents will be able to partake in the event and earn rewards while doing so.
Up for grabs are a handful of digital goods, including weapons and vanity items. Several Classified Sets — Classified Path of the Nomad, Classified D3-FNC, Classified Predator’s Mark , Classified Banshee — will also become available during this time. While some may be aiming to snag a weapon skin to add some standout flair to their loadout, the real draw is the return of masks, of which there will be three (pictured below).
Possessing these items won’t be a walk in the park, however. The Global Event will carry the following modifiers:
- 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.
For new Agents or those returning after Update 1.8, this is your first chance to acquire a mask for your character. More and more, Ubisoft is giving players good reason to return to its online shooter. As a returning player myself, I am finding The Division’s revitalized gameplay and expanded environments a joy to revisit.
Gear up and get out there, Agents.
