Knowing how to unlock the Dark Zone in The Division 2 is going to be key if you’re looking forward to Ubisoft’s blend of PvPvE. Unlocking the Dark Zone won’t be difficult to do, but we’ve created a simple guide to help you along the way. Here’s everything you need to know to access the Dark Zone and start getting yourself some higher tier loot.
With this unpredictable nature of the Dark Zones in The Division 2, we don't blame you for wanting to venture in there as soon as possible. To begin accessing the Dark Zones in The Division 2, you first need to raise the overall level of your character to 10. Secondly, you then need to raise the level of the Theatre Settlement to level 3. To raise the level of this settlement in particular, you're going to want to disrupt as many Public Executions as possible. These events occur at random around the map of The Division 2, but if you can't see any on your map screen, you'll want to go check out any of the white question marks on your screen, because any one of them could be a Public Execution that you'll need to disrupt.
First you must recruit a staff member called “Senait Ezera”. She is recruited from the Theater settlement. Keep doing main missions and side missions until she becomes available (this happens rather automatically from story progression). Then you can talk to her in the alleyway of the settlement (ground level). She will give you a quest that leads to DZ East Main Entrance (gate icon). Complete this quest. It’s simple enough and guided by waypoints as usual. In this quest you have to open the gate to the Darkzone for the first time and extract a weapon. It’s like a little tutorial. At the end you unlock the full DZ East Map with all its entrances. You also get the next mission to the South Dark Zone. Best and Cheapest The Division 2 Phoenix Credits For Sale
Once the level of the Theatre Settlement has been raised to level 3, a unique Dark Zone Agent will appear in your game. You'll immediately meet them, and recruit them to your home base in the White House. Go back to the Base of Operations in the White House, seek out the Dark Zone Agent, and she will unlock the Dark Zone East for you. You're now free to venture into your first Dark Zone expedition in The Division 2.
You aren’t able to participate in The Dark Zone PvP in The Division 2 until roughly level 10. Although, you are able to complete the objectives before then. Travel to The Theater Settlement and speak with the NPC at the Settlement Progress Desk. Here you will see the current level and available improvements for The Theater.
Once the Dark Zone East is unlocked, The Division 2 players should then be privy to the task to unlock DZ South. Completing the requirements of unlocking DZ South will then lead toward the mission to unlock DZ West.All of these missions given to The Division 2 players act somewhat like tutorials to provide primers on what one should expect out of each Dark Zone. Once these tutorial missions are completed, players ought to have gained full access to each DZ location.
