End game content in The Division 2
End game starts when you reach level 30 and complete the last stronghold mission at the capitol building. You will be automatically upgraded to World Tier 1 and the Black Tusk faction will show up. You will also be able to craft higher end gear and weapons now at the crafting bench. At endgame the specializations are becoming available as well.
As soon as the Black Tusk invasion starts, the Theater settlement will be under blockade. Click the settlement on the map and a red line will come out of it. The Grand Washington Hotel is a mission you have to complete first, but also there is a Unknown Activity marker, that will show up. You have to complete that activity for the settlement to be unblocked for you.
Besides the specializations progression, you can rank up in world tiers. This is done by completing the 4 stronghold missions (one additional one, Tidal Bassin). To do so, you must first complete 2 linked missions that were invaded by the Black Tusk before attacking the actual stronghold.
Each tier has a required Gear Score to attack a strong hold. It will rise with each completed strong hold. You can find gear and weapons, as well as craft them to up your gear score. These are the gear scores you need to advance to that world tier.
- World Tier 2: 275 Gear Score
- World Tier 3: 325 Gear Score
- World Tier 4: 375 Gear Score
- World Tier 5: 425 Gear Score
These are the strong holds and their linked missions:
- Roosevelt Island: Federal Emergency Bunker and Potomac Event Center
- Capitol Building: Air & Space Museum and Space Administration HQ
- District Union Arena: Grand Washington Hotel and Jefferson Trade Center
Once you cleared all three strongholds, the last stronghold Tidal Bassin will become available to you.
