Surely, many people starting Tom Clancy's The Division 2 wonder if the game is playable in single player mode. This chapter will tell you if such gameplay is possible and what limitations does it bring.
By default, Tom Clancy's The Division 2 is a multiplayer title - the best way to approach the game is to play in 4-man teams, which brings out the fun and facilitates the gameplay. This does not change the fact that single player gameplay is possible - you can engage in main and secondary missions, as well as take part in most side activities while playing alone.
The situation changes with higher difficulty levels, Bounties, and end-game missions - such activities require a well-knit team - without one, completing these missions is almost completely impossible. The same applies to PvP modes, which require you to join a team, making it impossible to play solo. When it comes to Dark Zones, lone players can also participate, but the gameplay can be difficult, as you can encounter a group of enemy players.
To sum up - solo gameplay is possible, but there are certain limitations, such as:
- Solo gameplay is rewarded with less valuable items - you'll receive less experience points, while items left by the enemy will be of much lower quality.
- In case of death, there is no one to pick you up. This problem can be overcame with the ability known as Hive (equipped with a special upgrade) - once the character is down, they will be restored to life. Unfortunately, this solution takes up one valuable ability spot.
- Some missions will be difficult to complete on your own, while those on higher difficulty levels will be impossible to complete without a well-knit group.
- PvP modes cannot be played on your own - the player is "forcefully" assigned to 4-man and 8-man teams.
Note - Remember that you don't have to find friends to play The Division 2 with. You can utilize the Matchmaking option to find random allies. You can access this option from the map menu - moreover, matchmaking computers are found in any hideout.
