1. Game freezes

Reporting no sound in the actual game after CC and have trouble completing the prologue due to freezes, occasionally only will unfreeze when alt tab. Very disappointed Ubisoft and not impressed.
How to fix The Division 2 game freezes
With reports coming in on game freezing even on high-end machines, a solution is to reduce your overall graphics settings for the game.
Also keep in mind to have the latest GPU drivers installed. Until the issue is fully addressed it seems that this could work for the time being.
We have a small guide for Nvidia users to tweak their settings to avoid the game freezing up. Here are the steps to follow:
- Open Nvidia Control Panel;
- Click on Manage 3D settings, and go to Program Settings and locate TheDivision2.exe;
- Set Max Pre-Rendered Frames to 1;
- Set Monitor Technology to G-Snyc (only if available);
- Enable Threaded Optimization;
- Set Power Management to Highest Performance;
- Set Multi-Display/Mixed GPU Acceleration to Single display performance mode.
2. No In-Game Sound
We all love the kick from a good soundtrack or just avoiding the chaos of gunfights. But when there’s no sound to begin with, we can’t stick to the subtitles alone.
Various users on Ubisoft forums have reported this issue, mostly being associated with Logitech headsets.
My 2 friends that had the problem changed their windows sound standard away from logitech (if you don’t have another device try pluggin out your headset) and it worked for both. So it seems there is definitly something wrong with logitech and the game.

With so many users pointing out to Logitech headsets being the culprit here, we can only suggest testing out different manufacturers.
For good measure, go to the settings of The Division 2 and look for the Audio menu. Switch the Voice Chat option to anything that isn’t related to your Logitech headset and this could do the trick.
Also, we’re gonna leave this tiny tip for disabling Logitech services:
- Start Task Manager, select Processes, press the L key, find Logitech Surround Service, and end this process;
- In the event this doesn’t work, end the Logitech Game Software process for safe measures;
- Restart your PC.
