The Division 2’s first raid is impossible for console players, apparently


Two days after Operation Dark Hours went live, no console players have managed to beat the first raid in Tom Clancy’s The Division 2. Many are howling for Massive Entertainment to help them out — or even try to complete their own creation on a console.
Raids are meant to be hard, but the first one in Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 is so hard that so far, no players on console have managed to beat it.
