Details about the first endgame raid in Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 have been leaked, pointing towards a huge battle over the Potomac River.

The second installment of The Divison series released on March 15 and plenty of players have already finished up with the game’s main storyline and are waiting for endgame content. 

They may not have long to wait after one Reddit user, Kevindavid40, dropped a lengthy post on the game’s subreddit with a number of data mined details surrounding the first in-game raid – including a list of objectives and reward trophies that make the raid sound pretty intense. 

Players are fighting it out in the game’s Dark Zones just waiting for new content.

The full list of objectives, which are sadly not in chronological order, are as follows: Survive the assault on the bridge, Find the stolen GPS coordinates, Protect the named agent on your team, Confirm the kill of 2nd hand Lieutenant, Rendezvous with your team.

Players will also have to: Survive the blackout attack, Find the activation code, Extract your team to safety, Split teams and flank the target, Stop the convoy from leaving the runway and Takeout bombarders from high ground. 

As these objectives are not in order, it’s pretty difficult to decipher just how the raid may start and conclude – but one of the leaked trophies paints a gruelling picture of what players will have to conquer in their bid to succeed.

One of the trophies, listed as a Gold trophy, is labeled as ‘Relentless’. Players will be rewarded with the Relentless trophy if you manage to cross the bridge in an hour or less – so, players can expect a pretty lengthy raid if the leak turns out to be correct.

The list of leaked trophies and their descriptions is as followed:

  • Relentless – make it through the bridge in one hour or less
  • Extreme Measures – have your most kills with Signature weapons
  • Reminder of Me – kill any of the Hunters who killed you before
  • Gone Baby Gone – in less than two minutes flee from Interceptors

There is currently no official confirmation on a release date for the raids but with players currently plowing through the game’s content – additional content shouldn’t be too far away, especially as Raids were highlighted in Ubisoft’s pre-release state of the game address.

As with any leak of game information, there’s a chance that plans could change – meaning that this raid may not be released in its leaked form as the details could be slightly outdated or Massive Entertainment makes a late change.


How to get Brave Nature Pokemon in Sword & Shield

Whether you’re looking to win more competitive Pokemon matches or just wish to have the strongest monsters, you’ll want to utilize Brave Nature Pokemon in Sword and Shield. 

A lot of things define a particular Pokemon’s power in battle and there are a few things you can do to ensure it has the best advantage possible. Aside from kitting your favorite pocket monster out with the game’s best moves, you’ll also need to ensure you choose the right Nature. Of course, knowing which nature works best will largely depend on the type of Pokemon you wish to use. 

This can be a little tricky, given that there are a total of 25 Natures in Pokemon Sword and Shield. While each one comes with its own unique strengths and weaknesses, many Pokemon trainers opt for Pokemon with the Brave Nature trait. Not only do these Pokemon hit incredibly hard, they can also give you a competitive edge in battle. 

What is Brave Nature?

Brave Nature Galarian Corsola

Galarian Corsola is one Pokemon that benefits from Brave Nature.

To put it simply, Brave Nature Pokemon have a 10% increase in their attack stat and a 10% reduction in their speed stat. This makes them hit incredibly hard in battle, but can also make the chosen Pokemon more sluggish. 

For example, Corviknight is already fairly slow, so it won’t be impacted too much by Brave Nature’s 10% speed reduction. 

The Flying Steel type is also fairly tanky, enabling it to take a hit or two before being KOed. This makes it the perfect match for the added attack boost the Brave Nature gives it. Meanwhile, Pokemon who rely on their speed to deliver high-damage moves like Greninja will want to avoid choosing Brave Nature.

Battle Tower Mints

Feeding mints to your Pokemon is the easiest way to change its Nature.

If you want to change the nature of your Pokemon to Brave right away, then you can use a Brave Mint. You can find a step-by-step guide on how to do this below:

  1. Complete Pokemon Sword or Shield.
  2. Earn Battle Points via the Battle Tower (unlocked at the end of the game’s story) or via Mystery Gifts.
  3. Visit the Wyndon BP shop with your winnings.
  4. Purchase a Brave Mint.
  5. Apply the mint to the Pokemon of your choosing.

The other way to secure the desired nature for a specific Pokemon is to breed them until the baby gets the nature you’re looking for. If you wish to go the breeding route, you’ll want to find a Ditto or a female Pokémon that has a Brave Nature. 

Once you’ve done that, simply give this Pokemon an Everstone to hold. Pokemon holding an Everstone have a 50% chance of passing their Nature to their offspring, so this will help speed up the process. 

Now that you know how to get your hands on Brave Nature Pokemon, you’ll be able to unleash even more devastating attacks than ever before.
