1. Walkthrough overview
Welcome to my TrueAchievements walkthrough for the well-received Tom Clancy's The Division from Ubisoft and Massive Entertainment. Set in Manhattan, you may have already seen footage and gameplay from the game as there was quite a gap between when the game was announced and eventually released. There's a lot to do in The Division's world, in both the PvE (Player Vs. Enemies) and PvP (Player Vs. Player) areas. Thankfully, the game's achievements are fairly easy to obtain so don't be intimidated by the huge amount that's on offer in the game. The PvP area, best known as the Dark Zone, also comes with a few achievements tied to it. These will present the most difficulty but again, they are not too difficult to unlock with the right information and advice.
The majority of the achievements can be unlocked while playing solo on normal difficulty for most missions. It's completely up to you if you want to bring a buddy along for the ride or match-make with randoms to make the game progress go quicker and be significantly easier. I will be covering all of the achievements in the game from a lone-wolf's perspective besides the necessary co-op achievements.
I will also make notes in the walkthrough for where certain achievements can be boosted if you want to go in that direction. You will at some point need to complete 20 missions as part of a group, complete a mission in challenge mode (which is pretty much impossible without a group), complete a co-op mission without anyone going down or dying as a Level 30 agent, and a few other co-op required achievements as well. I made a small amount of progress towards the 20 co-op missions on my way to level 30 and then finished up the rest daily by attempting the daily challenging missions with other players. I played with friends in the Dark Zone and co-op missions which allowed me to make progress towards the Medic and Lean On Me achievements.
I will provide as much text-detail as possible and will also include videos for every mission on normal, hard, and one for challenging. The weapons, gear and mods you decide to use is completely up to you. I prefer to use an SMG and Marksman Rifle as my main weapons and I also carry an Assault Rifle and Shotgun for backup. I mainly use the Medic and Sticky Bomb skills in the PvE area, and Medic and Pulse for the PvP area. In each video, I will record everything including the journey to each mission. This part however, will be sped up but I will revert the speed back to normal if something interesting happens.
I will also be purposely not picking up collectables to begin with unless they are pretty much un-avoidable. Collectables in The Division are made ridiculously easy to find thanks to a perk that can be unlocked, that shows the location of all the collectables in a particular area once all of the side missions have been complete, as we progress through the game early on.
We will go through the main story missions of the game and clean up any side missions and collectables that we can before moving on to the next area. This way, we won't have a massive task of collecting all of the collectables to end with. We will also dip into the Dark Zone when necessary but I'll cover more details when and why in the main part of the walkthrough.
All in all, there's going to be a ton of info throughout the walkthrough as I cover everything achievement related. Generally, I'd imagine people may only be looking for details on specific missions or maybe advice on the Dark Zone side of things. If you're one of those people, make good use of the "Ctrl+F" function to look for anything specific. The walkthrough has been put together with an agent on my other Xbox profile so walkthrough users can effectively go on the "journey" with my agent.
