Playing Division 2 in two modes, mostly solo, more fun when playing co-op with my brother. I’ve enjoyed it enough to play a LOT, staying up too late. ;) I have some questions that I’ll search this thread for before asking, but I have one I need to know now:
I was fine playing solo up until about level 20. (I’m 22 now.) Suddenly, missions became crazy hard. Example, Lincoln Memorial. I got through the first areas by being patient, using my turrets and cluster seeker mines (love those and cool down is nice and low) but the last area was impossible. I was getting rushed left and right (I usually have no problem with Reds, BTW) and purples and yellow were everywhere, a huge yellow with a flame thrower was running me down, and nothing would take him down (I was using a sniper turret, hitting him with cluster mines, grenades, etc.) and nothing would work. I was getting killed over and over and over to the point it wasn’t fun. I finally got my brother to join me, and we got killed over and over and over, trying different skills, weapons, strategies, etc. Eventually we did win it.
Then last night I hit another mission, don’t remember which one, but there were cranes. I hit the last area and I was being rushed from 4 different directions, bottom line it was overwhelming. Finally once my brother joined me, we sat in the room before going out into the last area, and we got crushed over and over and over (and he’s better at these games than I am, he is a fanatical Destiny player and when I tried playing that with him I was amazed at his ability to run and gun and find cover and kill big bad guys.) We finally decided on a strategy where we opened the doors, sprinted to the right and up a tower than only had one ladder up, one of us defended the flood (including the big yellow guy) trying to get up the ladder while the other tried killing from above, and after a few tries we FINALLY won. I do not think I would have EVER won that level solo.
So here’s the question: How do I change the overall difficulty to Easy? Right now the game, main missions, side missions, are all at Normal. I can tell that, at level 22, there are missions I will never be able to complete in solo and honestly even in two man co-op the game is starting to become a bit of a drudge when we have to replay something 10 times. I see I can change a main mission AFTER we’ve completed it, but that’s no help. But I cannot find an overall difficulty option.
