One of Ubisoft's most-anticipated new titles is The Division 2, the sequel to the popular first game that launched back in 2016. The Division 2 is a third-person military shooter which tasks you with stopping malicious forces from seizing control of the government in the District of Columbia. It's unclear how the rest of the country is affected at this point.

As with any online game, The Division 2 has a number of issues. You can read about all of them below alongside potential fixes.

Known issues

  • When you are on PC update your graphics card drivers to the newest version.

Deactivate DirectX 12 on crashes

  • It has been reported that DirectX 12 causes crashes, turn it down to DirectX 11.

Audio problems

  • The Division 2 team is aware of numerous reports regarding audio issues within The Division 2. They are currently working to resolve these issues as soon as possible.

Disappearing enemies

  • Some users are reporting that sometimes enemies disappear while still shooting at you.

Unlike Anthem or Fallout 76, The Division 2 has very few problems. The fact that the performance is solid on consoles also helps.

  • The issues I've encountered is the 4 player party isn't balanced correctly with the enemies. It's better with 2 player than 4 player. 4 player party enemy balance in Division 1 was much better even on Legendary than it is in Division 2. Also, when you use your skills they immediately disappear however the cool down time to recall them is like 15 seconds but that doesn't help if you can't use them. Seems the drone and chem launcher last the longest. On Tuesday and Wednesday when the game launched for those who pre-ordered it worked fine, but after Friday's launch it didn't work right. Others in my part started noticing it with their skills to.
  • Besides the bugs and still lousy drops, I was disappointed to find out that Div2 does away with the special ammo/Consumables radial and dumbs them down to just immediate use and we now only get one type of nade depending on which specialization we have. Why they made these changes is beyond me - other than they wanted to give us less choice and wanted a more arcadee feel. My only gripes I had about Div1 were the convoluted build mechanic and the lousy drops. Those are all Ubisoft should have changed in Div2.
