Division 2’s Dark Hours Raid Won’t be Made Easier
In response to some rumors last week, Ubisoft has clarified that they will NOT be making the Dark Hours raid in The Division 2 any easier. Since the raid launched last week, 7,000 PC players and 200 console players have completed the raid. If you compare these numbers to the number of people actually playing The Division 2, you’ll see how difficult the content really is. Specifically, the number of console players able to beat the raid is concerning. Maybe Ubisoft should take the Overwatch approach and balance PC and console separately. Thoughts?

How to prepare for Operation Dark Hours
As today (May 16th) is the official release date for Operation Dark Hours (The Division 2's first high level raid) I have decided to create an easy guide to get you prepared.
1. Complete the Strongholds
Before you attempt the raid, make sure you have all strongholds completed, or you won't have access to the raid.
2. Reach Gear Score 490
Gear score 490 is required to participate in the raid, so get grinding!
3. Bring Your Best Gear
Enemies during the raid will be difficult, so make sure you have your best gear and abilities on hand to protect you. I recommend one short/medium range weapon such as the P90 or the MK16 Assault Rifle, and one long range weapon such as the Model 700. The higher the rarity, the better. For a secondary, I highly recommend the Sawed-Off shotgun for maximum damage output at close range; if a pistol is more your style, go for the D50.
4. Practice Your Communication and Aiming Skills in the Dark Zone
The Dark Zone is a great place to practice both aim and communication. The Dark Zone is one of the harder places to navigate in game, so hone your skills by hopping in with a clan, friends or with randoms.
5. Gather Your Squad
Communication is key, but as Ubisoft have announced that matchmaking will be unavailable for the raid, you're gonna have to rally up an 8 man squad yourself. You could theoretically summon 8 of your friends/clan members, OR, you could find a perfect squad using Moot's LFG feature which allows you to check the player stats to make sure you find the perfect squadmate.
What rewards can you expect from this raid?
The first team to complete the raid will be immortalised in the White House with a plaque containing an image and the names of those who beat it first. This will appear for all users on all platforms. If you aren't the team to beat it first, don't worry! There's much more to earn! If you beat the raid in the first week, you will receive an exclusive arm patch for your character. If all the players are in the same clan, you will receive a special clan icon and trophy to display.
In terms of loot, exotic items can be expected, along with cache keys and stash keys.
Alongside the raid will be a cosmetic event with new customisation items. These cache keys can be earned for free or by purchase.
