In the latest Division 2 update, Battle For D.C: Invasion, there's over 30 cosmetic items up for grabs as well as three gear sets: Ongoing Directive, True Patriot, and Hard Wired.

The three gear sets are unique to the Stronghold, Tidal Basin, while the cosmetic items can be obtained directly from the Apparel Cache's within the in-game store. 

Black Tusk Combat Uniform

For the Black Tusk Combat Uniform, there's no gear score requirement, but you'll need to unlock all 30 cosmetic items from the Invasion Apparel Cache. These can be purchased directly with premium credits, or by playing events in the game (press Escape > Apparel Store). If you want to ensure you obtain all 30 items, the total cost is around £19 as the chests don't offer duplicates, so it's simply a case of obtaining enough premium currency to unlock 30 Caches.

With the event lasting 30 days, you can easily gain a high quantity of free Invasion Apparel Cache, and will save yourself a fair amount of coin in the process.

How To Obtain Free Caches

  • Weekly Apparel Projects: three keys each
  • Chance to drop when reaching Field Proficiency upon each level after 30
  • Chance to drop when reaching Dark Zone Proficiency
  • Direct purchase with Premium Credits

Gear Sets

Remember that this content is available once you have progressed to World Tier 4 and achieved at least 425 gear score.

Upon logging into D.C., you will be met with a brief radio call informing you of developments nearby that require your attention. Completing this new side mission unlocks the Tidal Basin Stronghold.

After completing Tidal Basin, Coordinator Manny Ortega at the Base of Operations will have intel on surrounding Black Tusk operations in D.C. This unlocks Weekly Invaded Missions, available on any difficulty! These missions will reset on a weekly cadence and apply to the previous story missions.

If you are after the new gear sets, the Black Tusks will have a chance to drop pieces in World Tier 5.
