Ubisoft has cancelled planned changes for 'The Division 2' loot.
The company has confirmed it will not be going ahead with Title Update 3's Gear Score increase from 500 to 515, and the company admitted there would have been "a couple of issues" with the proposed alteration.
In a blog post on 'The Division 2' website, Ubisoft said: "Our intention, as always, is for players to enjoy the content they love and continue to make progress with their Agent.
"After talking about loot and Gear Score in a lot of meetings, chats and video calls and many white boards being filled with thoughts, notes and graphs, we decided that with all the changes coming with [Title Update 3], increasing the Gear Score at this point would have created a couple of issues."
Amongst those is that raising the Gear Score to 515 would have made the Gear Score 500 items out of date ahead of the raid included in Title Update 3.
The post continued: "We don't want to invalidate your progression and we heard that feedback loud and clear from our community."
Changes made to the upcoming patch include increasing rewards "for daily Priority Had and Challenging missions", and DC contaminated loot not dropping below the player's average Gear Score.
The company has "balanced loot across the bard to reduce the chances of items dropping at a lower Gear Score than that of your character".
It also added: "Heroic Mission bosses, Stronghold bosses and Bounty bosses, as well as Control Point Alert Level 4 reward containers guarantee Gear Score 500 items if your average Gear Score is at 500."
