Hello and welcome to Pbreezey's achievement guide for The Division achievement "Worth the Wait"

Inside the Dark Zone, anytime you loot an item (weapon, gear, mod) regardless of it's rarity, you must "extract" it before you actually have access to it because it has been contaminated by the virus. Unless you purchase upgrades, you are able to carry 6 contaminated items as you start. Once you are full (or once you find a really great item that you want access to) head to an extraction area which is marked as follows (the orangey shaded area):

Upon entering the extraction area, you may begin an extraction by holding down cn_X until you fire a flare into the air; or if someone else has already begun one you may just hang out until the extraction arrives. An extraction takes roughly 80 seconds from when it is called in until it arrives.

What to do while you wait? Hide. HIDE HIDE HIDE HIDE HIDE. Leave the extraction zone and come back when the extraction is almost there, find a really good spot and set up shop. Do something. Don't just stand there daydreaming. Why?
1. Calling in an extraction seems to prompt enemy AI to start flooding the area. You will want to set up some cover so that you can eliminate them to ensure you can safely extract your items. If you die, all of your items are dropped on the ground free for your fellow Agents to take without any fear of going Rogue.
2. An unscrupulous fellow Agent may decide he wants whatever he has in your pack and kill you. This. Is. The. Worst. Trust me. I have had it happen. Full 6 item pack, waiting to extract, roughly 10 seconds until extraction arrives and BOOM! Dead. All my items taken and already extracted by a Rogue agent with no hopes of recovery. This is the equivalent of getting Blue Shelled in first place during your last lap on Mario Kart. SO FRUSTRATING! So, take precautions, be safe and protect your items until you have guaranteed they are yours.

Once the extraction arrives you must approach the extraction rope, hold down cn_X to attach your items, and that's it. You are done. Extracted items will be waiting for you in your stash in any safe house or your base of operations. A WORD OF WARNING. Extractions do have space limits, i.e. only a certain number of people can extract on that tiny rope. So when the extraction rope falls, you need to be there ready to attach your items. I have had it happen where I call in an extraction, wait my 80 seconds, then see a flood of fellow Agents rushing the extraction rope before I am even close enough to try to press cn_X. This results in you having to wait for another extraction, and another grueling 80 seconds wondering whether you will actually get to enjoy your items.

If you have any questions or comments please let me know. If you're going to downvote, please comment first and give me a chance to improve whatever issue you may have.

Good luck and happy hunting!
