How to Answer the Backup Call in The Division 2
The Division 2 is Ubisoft and Massive’s latest foray into the looter shooter genre of video games, and takes place in Washington DC this time around, over the snowy streets of Manhattan from the previous game. Here’s how to answer the backup call in Division 2.
As you’re playing through the game naturally, you will occasionally hear a beep and a voice telling you that an agent is requesting for backup. And if you look in the lower left corner of the screen, you’ll see a prompt informing you of another player’s username, along with the mission they need help for.
If you’re feeling friendly, you can actually answer the backup call in Division 2 and help another player out. To do this, simply hold down the map button (touchpad on PS4 and the View button on Xbox One), then hold up on the d-pad to join their session.
Helping a fellow agent will reward you with a bit of bonus experience, along with the chance to pick up some extra loot. From the map screen, you can also press R1/RB to head over to the Matchmaking tab and randomly join another player’s current activity to help them with whatever they’re doing in The Division 2.
Calling for Help
On the flip side, if you’re in trouble, you can send out a backup call in Division 2 as well. Whenever you die in a mission or in the open world, you can hold down the triangle button (or Y on Xbox One) to start calling for help.
This will allow other players to see your backup call, and they might pop in to help you out. This is a great way to call for help as a solo player.
