The Division’s G36 Assault Rifle Has Received A Nerf

Ubisoft has released a new update, which nerfs for the G36 Assault Rifle for The Division. The nerf comes after fans have complained about just how much base damage the G36 Assault Rifle has compared with other assault rifle.

“The G36 is a clear outlier in terms of base damage,” community manager Hamish Bode said last month. “It will definitely not remain this way and I’ve attempted to make this as clear as possible, as early as possible. Don’t get me wrong, I love using the G36 for now but that doesn’t make actually balancing it the ‘wrong answer’.”

Not only does the update bring a 15% damage reduction to the G36, it also fixes a few bugs. Here is the full list of patch notes:

  • Reduced the base damage of all G36 Assault Rifles by 15%.
  • Fixed a bug where named weapons could not have their talents recalibrated.
  • Fixed a bug where the Megamap would not open for some players.
  • Fixed a bug where using the Evacuation Point in Underground before the new Objective Notification has appeared caused the mission UI to break.
  • Fixed a bug where the AlphaBridge Gloves could miss some of their attributes. Note: this change is retroactive, which means that all attributes on existing AlphaBridge Gloves will be rerolled.
  • Fixed a bug where the game music would stop completely when logging out while inside an Incursion.
  • Fixed a bug where recalibrating the last Talent on the PP-19 submachinegun would not yield a free Talent.
  • Fixed a bug where the Sentry Gear Set bonus would incorrectly apply when using The Showstopper automatic shotgun.
  • Fixed a bug where using a Signature Skill could cause the visual effect to be applied to all nearby players (not just group members).
  • Fixed a bug where weapon talents could stack indefinitely while using the Alpha-Bridge Gear Set 4-piece bonus.
  • Fixed a bug where recalibrating weapon talents would yield a random bonus, instead of the one selected in the UI.
  • Fixed a bug where players would die when returning to certain missions after respawning in a safe house.
  • Fixed a bug where PC players would be able to use multiple consumables at the same time.

The Division is out now for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
