Tom Clancy’s The Division is out today for the PS4, Xbox One and PC. The game is one of the most anticipated game for this year and since there is a lot of hype around it, players will try their best to reach the max level closer to the launch of the game in order to enjoy the potential end game content for farming and to prepare themselves for the upcoming free content update and expansions.
Fortunately, leveling up in Tom Clancy’s The Division can be done in a variety of ways.
Beating Main Story Missions
Story missions offer the best experience points in the game. You can get experience points through story missions by taking down enemies, doing the side missions available during the main missions, or by finding out loot or simply doing various tasks like reviving your group members. To gain even more experience points, you can play the mission on the highest difficulty settings. To change the difficulty, you need to do so before starting the mission by pressing the triangle/Y button on either PS4 or Xbox One. Higher difficulty will offer more experience points and better loot and credit at the end of the mission.
Doing Side Missions And Optional Objectives
There are a large variety of side missions available in Tom Clancy’s The Division and simply doing them also gives the players experience points that can be used to level up. These side missions will be usually available during some of the story moments when the player is encouraged to take a break from the main story and explore the open world of the game.
One of the optional objective that you should focus on is the security wing at the base of operations. If you upgrade it enough, you will be able to get some nifty perks that offer an increased percentage of experience points from killing enemies or fulfilling objectives.
Exploring The Open World For Loot
Finding a good loot is not only satisfying, it is also essential for increasing the experience points. There is loot available that will offer bonus experience points with an increase in percentage if you equip them when fulfilling various tasks e.g killing enemies.
Finding some of the hidden collectibles like phone record also offers the player experience points while discovering new locations often offers a decent chunk of experience points. There are also various crates and hidden items located throughout each of the location which offer experience points for their discovery.
Dark Zone offers a completely different level up system compared to the main game. Players will have their own rank called DZ rank in the Dark Zone which is different from their Agent level.
To level up your rank in Dark Zone, you will have to avoid getting killed by other players and take down as many high level players as you can. This will increase you rank in the Dark Zone but keep in mind that each death will decrease your rank.
To get even faster experience points in Dark Zone, you can try to go rogue and this can be accomplished by shooting other fellow agents in a firefight. This will make you a rogue agent and increase your experience points, but also make you a target for other agents.
