Another new season has rolled around in The Division 2 with the new Concealed Agenda season pass joining the mix along with Title Update 11. And as has been the case in previous seasons there are new exotic items for players to get their hands on.

One of those is the Memento, an exotic backpack described as "an escalating hybrid powerhouse that gives more power with every enemy felled." Sounds terrific.

Here's how you get it.

The big caveat to getting the Memento right now is that you have to own the Warlords of New York expansion and with it get access to the Concealed Agenda Season 3 rewards track.

Assuming you fit that bill, to get the Memento you simply have to reach level 90 on the season pass to unlock it as a reward. And as with previous seasons, the new exotic items are on the free track, so you don't have to fork out for the premium pass in order to get it.

Level 90 is close to the end of the season pass and may seem like a long way off, but remember that the current season will go on until December. So even if you're a casual player you have plenty of time to get it.

There's no right and wrong answer to this, and you'll find a variety of different methods suggested throughout the community. Much depends on your own confidence and skill level to complete harder tasks as those tend to offer the most XP and as such a quicker route to season pass levels.

One method is to target random activities across the map such as rescuing hostages, taking out enemy resource patrols and flipping the broadcast stations. These smaller activities are quick to complete so you can fire off a good number in the time it might normally take to complete a main mission.

If you can do these on challenging difficulty, even better, as your rewards will be greater. You can also do them on heroic but I, like many others, find them easier to complete quickly on challenging and still get a good amount of XP from them.

The other method I like to employ is random matchmaking for heroic missions from the world map screen. Often you'll be dropped into a group of four, sometimes a fair way through the mission, and as you play through you'll get a good amount of XP from just killing enemies and reaching the end. The loot is also better quality on heroic missions so two birds, one stone.

It's also worth keeping an eye on your projects as each of these that is completed yields a sizeable XP reward. The easiest to complete is the SHD requisition which also rewards you an exotic cache, simply for donating materials.

I haven't actually managed to get the Memento at the time of writing so I've no experience using it, but if you've already got yours and have any tips to share drop them into the comments below.
