Season 11: Reign of Fire

A new manhunt has begun with the launch of Season 11: Reign of Fire!
Here is all you need to know about Season 11 - the third and final season for Year 4 of The Division 2.




With the Black Tusk and True Sons alliance solidified and Captain Lewis's troops joining the Division, new battle lines are drawn.

Natalya Sokolova has come out of the shadows and is taking a more active and visible role leading the Black Tusk on more aggressive campaigns across Washington.

Additionally, Hunters have been more active in the capital and a new recruit emerges to help decipher encrypted Hunter Drone files.

Season 11 follows the story of the latest target to find - Zachary "Stovepipe" Beattie, an Explosive Ordinance Disposal Specialist. Tasked to destroy explosives, Stovepipe began collecting schematics and prototypes for increasingly unstable Improvised Explosive Devices. This caught the eye of the Black Tusk, who eventually recruited Stovepipe as one of their own.

The Division is now tasked to collect intel for Stovepipe's whereabouts. To do that, we must find and neutralize four targets (Charles "Chunks" Crawford, Lieutenant Bantam, Mort "Cursed" Kellogg and Beatrice "Auntie" Kaplan). Taking down these four targets is the key to locating Stovepipe. Good luck, Agents!
