The latest update for Ubisoft Massive’s third-person shooter Tom Clancy’s The Division provides the game with buffs to the Underground DLC’s loot drops.

Now that today’s weekly scheduled maintenance for Tom Clancy’s The Division has been completed, the fans of Ubisoft Massive’s action-RPG might notice some significant changes implemented in the title. For starters, and perhaps most importantly, the update has buffed the Underground DLC’s loot drops by giving players a much better chance at getting more loot upon finishing Operations with over four Directives.

Furthermore, those players of The Division who consider themselves to be weapon and gear aficionados ought to be quite pleased with the fact that Ubisoft Massive developers have also used today’s maintenance to have Underground Operation Directives rewards include all of the gear sets from Update 1.1 and 1.2. Not to mention, the loot tables for Underground Sealed Caches have been expanded to incorporate each and every weapon type, as well as all gear sets from the Underground expansion and Update 1.3, respectively.

For those fans of The Division who wish to get a closer look at all of the bug fixes and changes brought about by Ubisoft Massive’s team with the latest update, they can do so by checking out the patch notes right here. Should one enjoy getting their information in a video format and wish to skip out on the itemization of each improvement, the footage below from Alex at Arekkz Gaming gives the low down on what this all means for those loot loving fans of Tom Clancy’s The Division, by discussing how and why the loot, gear, and weapon drops are being buffed and diversified.

Of course, some of these details are not all that useful for players of The Division on the PlayStation 4 with the Underground DLC itself not coming out for the Sony console until August 2. As of now, PS4 fans have only received Update 1.3, and even it was postponed on the system after hitting PC and Xbox One first.

As far as what the future holds for The Division, the third-person shooter still has two additional paid DLC packs on the way with the Survival expansion that’s set for release in the summer, and Last Stand, which is due out sometime this winter. Hopefully, though, both of the forthcoming add-ons will manage to avoid having a rocky launch similar to that of The Division‘s most recent piece of priced downloadable content, as many fans of the game were plagued by problems stemming from the Underground DLC’s myriad release issues.
