In the current build of The Division, your Dark Zone loot is pretty much safe once you’ve attached it to the helicopter via an extraction rope. With “Conflict,” this is changing; players can now cut your rope in the few seconds it remains at ground level, giving them a chance to reap the benefits of your hard work. Of course, a couple of well-placed bullets should solve this problem. Players who attempt to hijack gear will also be labeled as a rogue, so it’s best to attempt your heists with a few friends as backup.
“Conflict” also includes the second free Incursion, “Clear Sky,” which takes place in Columbus Circle and sees you and your buddies fighting over an anti-air missile installation to “restore safe passage to the skies over Manhattan.” The coolest addition, however, might be the new high-value targets. Unlike the side missions scattered throughout the game that have you taking down an elite enemy, these are a one-and-done affair: fail, and you have no opportunity to kill them again. This looks to add a sense of urgency that was lacking in the side content of The Division, where death meant little more than a short run back to where you were before.
