Ubisoft's latest patch for The Division 2 is now live and it brings various improvements and bug fixes. According to the patch notes, Ubisoft managed to reduce frame rate drops and fix a lot of gameplay, skills, open world and UI bugs.

At the time of writing, The Division 2 servers are down for regular maintenance and the introduction of a new, minor patch that includes a couple of notable improvements and fixes.

Ubisoft shared the patch notes, and according to the list, a lot of gameplay, UI and performance issues have been addressed.

Those who were unable to enjoy the game due to frequent frame rate drops should notice some improvements as the developers Massive Entertainment worked on the issue that should be reduced now. However, they did not mention what was causing these frame rate drops.

There's also a lot of gameplay improvements including a fix for daily and weekly missions that would not reset for players who were offline at the time of reset. Massive also addressed the issue where armour and gear scaling would not take World Tiers into account and improvements to Co-op health scaling have also been made.

If you got stuck in Meet The Division Coordinator or Meet with Odessa Sawyer objectives, you'll be happy to hear that Massive fixed the problem, so you can finish these without any issues.

As for the quality of life improvements, Massive changed Push-to-Talk to be the default VOIP setting and reduced the UI flickering effect present in the menu.

The patch notes also include a couple of platform specific improvements and fixes. On PC, some players with Logitech headphones reported missing in-game audio but according to Massive, that has been fixed and should no longer bug the players.

On Xbox One, the issue with HDR slider that would not move has been addressed. The patch notes list a lot more changes and you can check them on Ubisoft's forum .
