STATE OF THE GAME: WEAPONS DEVELOPMENT BLOG
Agents, incoming State of the Game transmission:
During the last State of the Game, Community Developers Petter Mårtensson and Yannick Banchereau discussed the Talon Shield launch and provided a roadmap of Division activities for September.
Petter and Yannick are back this week to talk about our in-game event schedule for October and the first of our development blogs for The Division 2, tackling the topic of weapons.

Our first entry in our “Intelligence Annex” developer blog series is being released today on our official website. In today’s blog we will be deep-diving into the weapons of The Division 2, tackling subjects such as the main weapons, side arms, exotics, grenades, mods and weapon talents.
In addition, Fredrik Thylander – Lead 3C Designer on The Division 2 will be joining us in next week’s State of the Game stream to talk about the philosophy behind the weapons and changes made in the sequel.
