The Division 2 has garnered some success, both in the form of returning players and newcomers who heard great things. The online shooter is an excellent example of a fun, fast-paced looter shooter that has a lot to offer and easily worth the retail price.
For those out there looking for games like it, don’t fret, there are plenty of titles that are stylistically or thematically similar. Some are single-player experiences, while others are online-specific.
Breakpoint varies from The Division 2 in that instead of being an urban environment, fighting gangs, you find yourself on a small island fighting an army of trained operatives and their drones. Players must venture through the wilds, attempting to survive the onslaught of machines coming after them. The two share similarities in how loot works, instances, and group-based activities, though. If you’re looking for something to quench your need for loot, Breakpoint is an excellent option.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is not the traditional loot-based game you’d think to have next to The Division 2. However, the need for group-based tactics, grabbing anything you can to survive, and the urban battles bring it up to par. Every match you play in PUBG is a different experience, and you can vary your options to help your team out the most.
Anthem is much more closely aligned to The Division 2. The two games focus on you finding the best loot in the game by fearsome instances to fight against some of the fiercest foes the game has to offer. There are limited-time events, seasonal rotations, and plenty of loot to score while you fly around in your mech, blasting enemies from the sky or directly meeting in the middle of battle. How you play is up to you, and every javelin in Anthem has something to offer a team.
7. Far Cry 5
Far Cry 5 has more of a single-player experience, but you have the option to team up with friends and take on the American homefront where a cult has overtaken a small town in the mid-west. You can upgrade your weapons, locate collectibles, and takedown various challenges all over the town. The game is reasonably open-world, giving players a choice of how they approach situations and takedown challenges.
Rainbow Six Siege varies from The Division 2 quite a bit. In Siege, you have a small team duking it out against another small team, attempting to beat the other in objective-based gameplay. Your tactics change for nearly every game you play, and you need to adapt to your teammates as much as you need to think about what your opponents are doing. While Rainbow Six Siege has a purely online focus, it’s a great way to play a shooter with friends who prefer jumping into voice chat to talk about what to do next.
The Outer Worlds is a hilarious science-fiction adventure from the creators of Fallout: New Vegas. This game is a single-player experience, but you need to rely on your gear and grabbing new loot as much as crafting it on your ship. You won’t be able to play with your friends online, but you can share with them the wacky adventures you get up to with your character’s companions and tell them how you handled situations differently than they did.
For those looking for a shooter game with plenty of loot to go around, the Borderlands series if an excellent way to complete a straightforward experience with plenty of comedy thrown into it. There’s a massive variety of guns, and plenty of games to pick from. You can start at the beginning with the traditional Borderlands and work your way up through Borderlands 2, The Pre Sequel, and Borderlands 3. You can do this alone or take a friend with you.
3. Escape from Tarkov
For those looking for a dynamic, intense shooter experience, make sure to give Escape From Tarkov an attempt, if you can handle it. You have the option to play the game alone or with a few friends. Regardless of how you play, the title focuses on grabbing loot off of bodies found in the game and attempting to extract with as much gear as possible. Other players are also on the map, intent on gunning you down and taking the equipment before you can leave with it. If you enjoy a player versus player experience, you want to give this one a try.
Warframe is excellent time sync for those looking for a massive shooter with plenty of available loot to grab during every game. Unlike The Division 2, you can use a variety of different abilities for every new Warframe suit you acquire, along with plenty of stylish movement across the landscape. While Warframe is a free game, there’s plenty to do and more on the way from the developers.
1. Destiny 2
With Destiny 2 moving to Steam, anyone can now give the game a try before purchasing it. If you do enjoy it, you can jump on the game’s new battle pass content rollout to participate in the latest events and get some of the best gear available in the game by playing with friends and completing tough challenges. You can focus on player versus player content, running missions with friends, or going through the game’s weekly tasks. There’s plenty to do in Destiny 2 with always more on the way.
