The Division 2 winter event brings in… a snowball gun?

Ubisoft announced that on December 10 they’ll be rolling out Title Update 6.1 for The Division 2. With the update comes an in-game winter event called Situtation: Snowball. The event will see major enemies rocking red Santa hats along with the opportunity to earn your own.

Once you start taking out those enemies, there’s a chance they’ll drop an exclusive new weapon that shoot snowballs. We don’t have a name for this weapon yet or if it does an actual damage to enemies, but we’re looking forward to finding out.

In addition, the update will bring in 35 new apparel items to collect with a Silent Night theme and anyone who logs in between December 10 and January 7 will earn a key, while pass holders will earn three keys.

Finally, the Title 6.1 update will add the beta version of the new Hardcore Mode. Hardcore Mode bring permadeath to The Division 2 campaign where agents will not be able to respawn. Players will have to be even more tactical and wise in their decisions. Luckily, players will be able to take on the challenge with friends, since co-op will also be available in Hardcore Mode.
