In The Division 2, players are encouraged to team up with others online to tackle the game’s various missions and activities. While players are free to do this in a group of friends that they know, sometimes they won’t have anyone readily available to journey through war-torn Washington, D.C. with them. In this instance, The Division 2 players can join in on missions with random players through its matchmaking system, but after the mission is over, they will find themselves still in that group.
That’s fine if The Division 2 players want to keep playing with that group, but some may want to leave. While some players will just quit out of the game entirely to leave a group, there is actually a way to leave a group in-game, though it’s not well-explained.
To leave a group in The Division 2, open the pause menu and then open the Social tab. This will show the names of everyone currently in the group, friends that are online, and things of that nature. Players will want to click on their name in this list, which will trigger a drop-down menu of sorts that will give them the option to leave the group.
Players shouldn’t have to worry about losing any progress when they leave a group, but even so, they may want to return to a safe house just in case. Luckily, it’s possible to fast-travel to most safe houses after completing a mission, so players should be able to do this with minimal trouble.
After arriving at a safe house and leaving the group, The Division 2 players should then respawn in that same safe house. They are then free to do whatever they want, including joining a different group in a different mission if they so desire.
While it may seem obvious to some, it’s important that all The Division 2 players to know how to leave a group so they don’t get stuck playing with people who aren’t focused on the same goals in the game as they are. It should help them stick to their plan, whether that be to slowly go through the main story missions or to level up to 30 as fast as possible to get to the endgame content.
The Division 2 is out now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
