The Division 2 World Tier 5 Unlocks | Tidal Basin Invaded Mission rewards

Available right now, The Division 2 World Tier 5 unlocks are what you achieve in the final mission of the launch build of the game. While future content will no doubt expand on the game’s endgame offerings, it is the Tidal Basin Invaded Mission that will open up access to the final selection of WT5 rewards. Here’s what you need to know about The Division 2 World Tier 5 Gear Sets, Gear Score 500 increase, Weekly Invasions, and the Heroic Difficulty mode unlock.

Anyone who has rinsed through what The Division 2 already has to offer will definitely want to play through and unlock The Division 2 Tidal Basin and The Division 2 World Tier 5. Read on to discover how you can unlock both of these (currently) final endgame pieces of content.

The Division 2 World Tier 5 Gear Sets, Gear Score 500 Increase, Weekly Invasions, Heroic Difficulty Unlock

As The Division 2 World Tier 5 is available to unlock right now, you will be able to make the most of all of its upgrades as soon as you unlock it (more on that process below). There’s a lot to like about the new rewards you’ll be able to grab in World Tier 5, however.

The Division 2 Tidal Basin Invaded Mission rewards, which then unlocks World Tier 5, are as follows:

  • Gear Sets – Find powerful gear sets like Ongoing Directive, Hard Wired, and True Patriot!
  • New Gear Score Cap – New dropped-loot gear score of 500.
  • Weekly Invasions
  • Heroic Difficulty

While we have a full guide for The Division 2 World Tier 5 Gear Sets and Score, we feel like its best to explain them both a little here. Upon completing the Tidal Basin Invaded Mission, Black Tusk enemies and completed Invaded Missions will randomly drop new Gear Sets. The three new Gear Sets are Hardwired, Ongoing Detective, and True Patriot.

Brand-new Weekly Invasions will be added into The Division 2 upon reaching World Tier 5. These will involve those pesky Black Tusk enemies invading Main Missions and Strongholds across The Division 2 world map. These will prove to be difficult Invaded Missions, but the rewards won’t be slight. You’ll be able to take these Weekly Invasions on in any difficulty you see fit, with the best rewards saved for those completing Weekly Invasions on the new Heroic Difficulty.

How to reach The Division 2 World Tier 5 unlock

To reach World Tier 5 in The Division 2, you must first make your way through World Tier 1, World Tier 2, World Tier 3, and finally to World Tier 4. By completing the related missions and strongholds, all the while increasing your Gear Score, you’ll steadily make your way to World Tier 5.

Division 2 players had to wait a long while before they could play through World Tier 5. It is available to unlock and play through right now, however, so long as you download the 1.05 update. Not only do you need to play through all of World Tiers 1-4 before you can unlock World Tier 5, you will also (as it turns out), need to play through a whole new side mission and the Tidal Basin Invaded Mission. There’s an awful lot you need to do before you’ll be able to play through The Division 2 World Tier 5.

Follow these steps to unlock The Division 2 World Tier 5:

  • Reach Player level 30
  • Complete World Tiers 1-4
  • After you have finished World Tier 4, you need to complete a brand-new Side-Mission
  • Once you have completed the new Side-Mission, you unlock Tidal Basin
  • Complete the Tidal Basin Invaded Mission and Stronghold to unlock The Division 2 World Tier 5

As we explained above, unlocking World Tier 5 will award you with better loot, Gear Sets, Weekly Invasions, and more. Endgame players of The Division 2 will definitely want to reach World Tier 5. The enemies will be even tougher in World Tier 5, however, so you’d better watch out.

As stated above, The Division 2 Tidal Basin Invaded Mission and World Tier 5 is live right now. After installing the latest 1.05 update, you will be able to unlock the Tidal Basin Invaded Mission and later, World Tier 5.

In order to unlock the Tidal Basin Invaded Mission, you will need to have reached player level 30. You will then need to work your way through World Tiers 1, 2, 3, and 4. This will involve completing quite a few difficult Invaded Missions and Strongholds across each Word Tier. Finally, in order to complete World Tier 4 you will need to finish off the Capitol Building Stronghold and Roosevelt Island Stronghold Missions. This will then unlock a brand-new Side-Mission. You will need to complete this Side-Mission in order to unlock the Tidal Basin Invaded Mission. Completing the Tidal Basin Invaded Mission will unlock World Tier 5.

Now get out there, Agents, and fulfill your potential. There are tons of new, exciting loot out there for you to find. World Tier 5 is currently the highest level of The Division 2 endgame there is. Who knows, though? Perhaps we’ll see a World Tier 6 before long? Of course, we’ll be there waiting to tell you all about it.
