The Division 2's next big update, Title Update 9, went live today. The massive patch brings many gameplay changes along with multiple bug fixes. From now on, exotic items can be upgraded to level 40 and attributes can be re-rolled via the crafting bench.

The update also rebalanced some game items. Imperial Dynasty received a small buff with its cooldown being reduced to 35 seconds from the previous 40. Dodge City Gunslinger is also buffed, with its charge up time reduced by 20 seconds. Diamondback and Sawyer’s Kneepads were reworked and Lady Death doesn’t enhance Turret's skill anymore. Base damage for Bullet King now matches the normal LMG version and Merciless/Ruthless explosion damage is buffed to 1200 percent.
