The Division 2 Commendations Guide – Tactical, Combat, Discovery, Teamwork, Service

Commendations in The Division 2 are like an Achievement System of the game. You can complete Division 2 Commendations to progress through its levels and earn XP as well as cosmetics for your troubles. These Commendation Challenges can range from easy to damn near impossible and for each Commendation you complete, you will be rewarded with a ‘Patch’ accordingly. In our The Division 2 Commendations Guide, we have detailed everything you need to know about completing them.

The Division 2 Commendations

When equipped, a ‘Patch’ is displayed on character info on your character so anyone aiming at you can see it.

The Commendations are categorized into 5 categories i.e. Tactical, Combat, Discovery, Teamwork, and Service. These challenges can be viewed by pressing Start > Progression > Commendations.
