The agonising wait is finally over: Tom Clancy's The Division 2 is here, and it's fair to say that the early consensus from fans and critics alike is that it's both a solid improvement over the fun-but-flawed original and also a major credit to the "looter shooter" genre.
But as with so many open-world squad-based multiplayer titles, The Division 2 is a rather complex game that can seem quite daunting at first, especially to those coming in completely fresh.
Though the game does a (mostly) great job laying out its menus and systems in a fairly clear and concise fashion, there are some aspects that Ubisoft doesn't really explain all that well.
But fear not, because having spent a hefty chunk of time with the game in its early launch period, we've rustled up a list of everything players both new and old should take heed of before venturing out into The Division 2's post-apocalyptic Washington, D.C.
And in addition, we've stumbled across some handy tricks which will make you a more fierce combatant on the battlefield while also saving you some precious time...
