Global Event #5: Blackout is Here

23/04/2018 12:00 PM

The newest Global Event—Blackout—has arrived with new modifiers, vanity masks, and another chance at Classified gear-sets!

  • Start: April 23, 08:00 AM UTC
  • End: April 30, 08:00 AM UTC

The following modifiers are live during Blackout:

  • Blackout—Always active. Agents are equipped with Shock Ammo that stuns enemies. Shooting or running builds your Charge meter. The more Charge, the more damage you inflict.
  • Extreme Blackout—Blackout behavior, plus you can instantly kill enemies with Overcharged melee attacks, but if you miss you will stun yourself and your allies.
  • Total Blackout—Extreme Blackout behavior, plus your Charge meter will cool down faster when close to other group members.

Agents now have an opportunity to earn the following Classified gear-sets:

  • Classified DeadEye
  • Classified D3-FNC
  • Classified Striker's Battlegear
  • Classified Tactician's Authority

No Global Event would be complete without vanity items. The Vulcan, Tao, and Rictus facemasks make their way into The Division and can be earned by completing Blackout-specific Commendations.

In addition, three new weapon skins alongside a new vanity outfit will be rewarded based on player performance on the tiered-Global Event Leaderboards. We hope to see everyone in-game!
