The Division 2: Target Mercury Guide

In the new expansion for The Division 2 Massive introduced the new game-play mechanic called seasons. Seasons release new content each Tuesday that add new events to the title. These events take on many forms including the likes of leagues, Polarity Switches, and targeted hunts. The first addition added in Season 1 was the Bounty Hunts and we now have a fourth target to find called the Target: Saturn event. To help you complete this event, use our Mercury Saturn guide below.

Note: You can claim the Season 1 pass if you own WONY by accessing the Store > Add-ons > Season 1 Pass.

  • West Potomac Park.
    • 1 Control Points.
    • 1 Bounty.
    • Lincoln Memorial Mission.
  • East Mall.
    • 3 Control Points.
    • 1 Bounty.
    • Air & Space Museum Mission.
  • Capitol Hill.
    • Capitol Building.
  • Southwest.
    • 2 Control Points.
    • 1 Bounties.
    • 1 Space Administration HQ Mission.

To complete the following investigations you will spend your time in New York City. On the New York City map you will find these events marked with yellow hearts on your map. The only requirement for these investigations is to complete them on Normal or above difficulty. Do all four area investigations listed above to advance to the second portion of the Mercury Manhunt.

Once you’ve done the investigations listed above you will receive the Bounty for Mercury. To activate this bounty make your way to the White House and interact with Sykes there. On the bounty map you will see a bounty called Mercury’s Cell. Select this bounty, head to the East Mall area, and kill Mercury.

For defeating Mercury you receive 25% towards the investigation of Jupiter; various loot; and 2x the experience. Not bad for a days work. If you’ve completed all four Bounty Hunts up to this point you will have unlocked the final hunt for Target: Jupiter. This target can be found on Roosevelt Island.
