Massive Entertainment are rolling out The Division 2 Title Update 3 soon and it will bring a pile of changes but one of the highlights is something community kept requesting from day one - standardised respawn time for loot containers.

The Division 2 loot containers will now reset at a specific time each day, instead of exactly 24 hours from the moment they were looted. The system didn't conform to the needs of players because mostly no one is keen on keeping a timer to see when they will be able to loot the same chest or locker again.

With preset loot respawn, players will now have an exact time each day when they will know they can loot the same chests all over again. Furthermore, this will extend to the Control Point reward container so it won't remain open forever.

Cabinet loot in Dark Zone safe houses will now contain DZ keys in addition to the regular loot, but the official patch notes stated the keys are not guaranteed when opening the locker but rather have a chance to drop.

Another highlight of this update is Inaya al-Khaliq who will no longer be just an annoyance calling to the agent while the latter is crafting. She will now become a blueprint vendor so players will have a better, more transparent way of obtaining crafting blueprints.

She will now stock all the blueprints that would otherwise be found on other vendors, in addition to one weekly blueprint. The patch notes confirmed that Inaya's stock will include blueprints that were previously obtainable from Alert Level 3 Checkpoints and Settlements.

Crafting benefits don't stop there though. Exotics will automatically jump to maximum Gear Score the moment they are crafted, with the Gear Score limit depending on the World Tier a player was in when crafting said item.

The update also contains a massive list of balance changes that can be previewed on the official website. It's worth noting that PvP and PvE are being balanced separately.
