The Hunter, a mysterious group of particularly strong and feared opponents, run into The Division 2’s agents in Washington DC as well. From any hunter, you can dust off a cool cosmetic mask. We explain what you have to do for it.
What’s up with the hunters? The Hunter were already hunting the players in The Division 1. They were among the toughest and nastiest opponents in the game and could even quickly blow out the light of even well-trained agents at an unfavorable moment.
In The Division 2, these hunters are now back. Already in the course of the campaign, it is suggested that Washington will be dealing with these elite fighters. But at the first meeting one is still spared by the Hunter. Later, however, you can deliberately “summon” them and hunt for them. There are cool rewards.
Get Hunter Masks in The Division 2 – That’s how it works
What rewards are there? Each of the 12 Hunter drops its own mask – the coveted trademark of these hunters. These can be collected, exhibited in your Operations Base as trophies, and even equipped as a cosmetic item that will give your agent a cool and special look.
In addition, some of these 12 Hunter ivory keys fall. Once you have collected all 8 of them, you can open a box next to the barber in the White House, which holds more goodies for you.
Go through the main entrance into the building, turn right at the first possibility and then go through the second door on the right side. There you will find the box.
You get this
- The Shield Splinterer F2000 assault rifle with random talents and scaling Gear score according to world rankings
- a matching, white weapon skin
- and the infamous Hunter Ax as a trailer for your backpack
The locations of the 12 Hunter masks
This is how the hunters were discovered: In the world of The Division 2, secret codes encode information hidden in numerous graffiti on buildings or walls.
Players have already decrypted these cryptic symbols, figuring out where to find the 12 hunters, including masks, and what to do to “call” them. Because on their own they do not show up there.
You should keep this in mind when hunting: With a few exceptions you have to hunt the Hunter at night. The “Night Time” starts at 19:00 clock time and ends at 05:00 clock. It will be shown to you on the right side in photo mode.
For some hunters, however, there are occasional problems when it is still very bright – even after 19 o’clock. But if you get the masks generally at night, in the dark, you can not go wrong. By the way, there is no fixed order for the individual hunters.
In addition, you should take into account that the Hunter have a level of 35. If you do not want to hit the ground after a hit, it’s best to hit it with the right gear after reaching maximum level 30. Then many of them can master solo well. In the team , however, it is much easier.
The Ghoul Mask: North of the Lincoln memorial in West Potomac Park, you will find an entrance to the sewers.
Go underground and follow the course of the tunnel until you enter a large room. There you have to interact with a computer located near a large map of Washington.
If you have activated the computer, a lamp lights up, which illuminates an X on the card. There you will find the hunter.
When marking you will find in the game world a platform as a scaffolding on which a lamp flashes. Shoot the light bulb and the hunter spawns.
Now switch it off and you will receive the mask and an ivory key. Remember, this mission must be completed at night.
Ghost Mask: Head to this intersection south of Capitol Hill in the Southwest district and find the memorial plaque.
Shoot the lamp that illuminates the thank you, so that the names on the board are no longer visible.
Salute now via the emote function out of the water with a view of the plaque.
Then the hunter should appear. If it is not triggered, salute a few times more (some report from 6 to 8 times) and put you closer to the flagpole. Turn Hunter off and you’ll get the ghost mask and ivory key. This mission must be completed at night.
Revenant Mask, Midas Mask: Go to the marked position in Northwest Washington (West End).
There you will find a large hotel facility. Head to the center of the building complex where you will see a pool.
Performs in the pool via the emote function Jumping Jacks. This spawn two hunters, which must be switched off. After winning the battle, two new masks and an ivory key will wave to you. This mission must be completed at night.
Demon Mask: Go to the marked location in Downtown East.
There you have to enter the neighboring building, marked with a question mark on the picture, through the subway.
As soon as you arrive in a kind of courtyard, which is enclosed by the building, you have to climb up the hill with the palm trees and from there shoot four targets, which you will find in the windows opposite.
If you have successfully hit all four targets, the Hunter appears, from which you get your next mask and an ivory key. This mission can also be tackled during the day.
Purple Mask: Head to the landmarked building in the east of Downtown East.
Enter the building from the south (below). Activate the computer in the first room.
Then run across the courtyard to the northern part of the building. Activate the phone there.
Once that’s done, the Hunter appears in the courtyard. From him you get the purple mask and an ivory key. This mission can also be done during the day.
Diamond Mask, Phantom Mask, Death Mask, Cross Mask: In the East Mall area you can get four masks. Go to the marked building first.
In the building itself you now have to flip a switch and then walk to the park with the fir tree east of the building.
Walk around the fir-tree a bit and four hunters will appear. Turn it off and get your masks. There is also an ivory key here
It can happen that only three instead of four Hunter spawn in one place. Then take a look around the park area. The fourth Hunter spawns then usually just a bit off the main group.
How to get these 10 hunter masks, read through this detailed guide from NothingButSkillz:
Ghost Mask : One thing in advance – this is the right and regular way to get to this mask. Head to the Washington Monument (The Great Pillar) in the West Potomac Park area south of the White House.
If the checkpoint at the monument is still occupied by enemies, you must first conquer this. Run into the interior of the monument and rappel through the elevator shaft into the basement.
Press the button under the monitor on the thick pillar. This tells you the location of three tombs that you need to visit in a specific order (see picture).
At each grave you have to salute with the help of the gesture menu. Whether it worked, you will notice that the screen or the HUD are then slightly distorted for a short time.
Now go back to the monitor in the basement. Activate the button below again. The monitor should now be flickering with an orange circle (The Division Ring).
By the way: If you have mastered this step and have to start all over again, all you have to do is activate the terminal. The saluting at the tombs is now eliminated.
Go up the elevator shaft and walk straight ahead. There you see a ring projection on the ground – a red circle.
Stand in this circle and the hunter will appear right in front of you. Turn it off, get the next mask and an ivory key. This mask can only be obtained at night.

Spook Mask: Again, this is the regular way to get to the spook mask. To do this, you must first get through to this location in the East Mall area.
Now look in the direction of the building south of your position. Before that you will find a truck. Climb on his roof.
Now look at the building itself. Now it is time to hit the windows of the building in a specific order (see picture). Note that the windows are split in two. You always have to hit the bottom windows.
If you shoot yourself, that’s it for the try. Then you have to log out and then try again.
If you meet the 16 windows in the correct order, the Hunter turns up to the right of the truck (if you look at the building). Kill him and you will receive the haunted mask and an ivory key. Incidentally, the mask can also be picked up during the day.
