While playing through Tom Clancy’s The Division 2, many players will notice the absence of manual saves. To ensure that all progress has been saved prior to closing out the game, it’s recommended that players take advantage of a few different features. First and foremost, The Division 2 offers a constant connection to Ubisoft’s online servers.

Because of this, data is automatically synced, resulting in a persistent world design that eliminates the need to continuously save your progress manually. To break this down even further, the game automatically saves as you explore and interact. Everything from entering a new area, to interacting with different modes, and even swapping your clothes will trigger autosaves in The Division 2.

For lengthier aspects of The Division 2 including Missions, you’ll want to keep an eye out for checkpoints. Along with the automatic saves mentioned above that come into play when you accept or complete a Mission, there are plenty of checkpoints located within each respective Mission that save your progress once you reach them.

If you find yourself needing to leave in the middle of a Mission, it’s advised you seek out a Mission checkpoint before closing out The Division 2. This is because, when you restart the game and dive back into the Mission in order to complete it, you’ll typically load in from the last checkpoint you reached.

During our time in Tom Clancy’s The Division 2, we found the game’s automatic save system to be a fairly reliable way to track progress. While it would undoubtedly be nice to have a manual save feature in place for things like loading into a previous save point, relying on Ubisoft’s online servers and checkpoints within Missions should prove to be more than enough to keep track of your in-game progress.
