Alongside the launch of the series first ever raid, today a new Dark Hours themed Division 2 Apparel Event is now live! It adds 40 new cosmetic items to the game, including outfits, masks, and dyes. You’ll find these cosmetics in new Dark Hours Apparel Caches — which you’ll need special event keys to open. In this guide, we’ll run through exactly which cosmetics you can earn during The Division 2 Apparel Event: Dark Hours, as well as how to obtain more keys.

What Items Can You Earn in the Division 2 Apparel Event: Dark Hours?
This Apparel Event for The Division 2 adds five new outfits, a new uniform (exclusive to the event), two masks, four emotes, and eight weapon skins.
If you collect all items from the event, you’ll be rewarded with a unique outfit called the Offsite Activities Uniform. This outfit can only be obtained through Apparel Event: Dark Hours. It won’t be available in The Division 2 afterwards.
An extra item, the Field Respirator Mask, is available if you collect all five gear sets. You don’t have to collect the extra cosmetics, such as weapon skins, to unlock it, though.
How to Earn Event Keys – The Division 2 Apparel Event: Dark Hours
When you log on for the first time during the event, you’ll be given one free event key to open a single cache. Anyone that bought The Division 2 Year One Pass will earn an additional three bonus keys. You can unlock them from the apparel page in your inventory.
After you use your free keys, there are three ways to farm more in-game. Although you can always buy more with real-world money.
First, you can earn keys via Weekly Apparel Projects. These projects are tougher than the usual ones; you have to complete a variety of missions and activities in different sectors of the map for each one. The upside is that you’ll be handsomely rewarded with three event keys when you turn them in. Visit the projects desk in The White House to see the active Weekly Apparel Projects, or click the Projects tab on your map.
Second, event keys have a chance to drop when you reach a new Field Proficiency level after Level 30. Third, event keys might drop when you reach a new Dark Zone proficiency level.
And finally, as we mentioned above, you can buy event keys with premium credits. Each Apparel Event key costs 100 premium credits.
When Does the Division 2 Apparel Event: Dark Hours End?
The Division 2 Apparel Event: Dark Hours event ends on the night of June 5. Once June 6 starts you won’t be able to obtain keys via projects, or by reaching new proficiency levels.
From Jun 6 to June 13 you’ll be able to use any remaining keys you have. Or you can purchase additional keys with real world money.
But once June 13 ends, everything inside Dark Hours Apparel Caches will move over to the standard Apparel Caches. You can read about where to find and how to open those here. But this means that you can still grab the items after the event ends. The only exception is the Offsite Activities Uniform, which you can only earn during the event by collecting every cosmetic item.
Best of luck out there, agent! We hope you get all the items you need in Apparel Event: Dark Hours before time runs out.
