I did the 12 Hunter Masks in Washington like a year ago, then got 3 masks into the ones for Warlords of New York and just stopped. I'm now coming back to finish them, and I now realize why I stopped trying to get them over a year ago. It's so annoying to do all the things to spawn a Hunter, and then you go to do the last thing and night time is over. So now I have to stand around for a while doing nothing because I don't need anything else in the game. I'll just be sitting here, waiting for night time.
If you're curious, I'm trying to get the Divide Mask. You have to go to a memorial located in New York and press the button on a generator. Then you have to take a control point and collect a flag. Then you have to run up a couple of piers to collect a 2nd flag. Then you have to go to another control point (and basically take it or deal with taking damage while you're trying to shoot a lock on a door)... shoot a lock on a door, climb up, collect a 3rd flag, then the last one is the easiest where you fast travel to The Food Bank safe house, go out and to the left, drain some water by pressing a button, collect the last flag, then travel back to the Water Front control point, run back to the memorial. Then hoist all the flags, you'll have to kill more adds here, then you press the generator again to trigger the hunter.
THAT'S WAY TOO FREAKIN MUCH. I died when going for the 3rd flag, which caused me to lose maybe a few minutes. But I should've been able to complete it in time. I hoisted the flags, then went to press the generator and I couldn't because it was day time by then. The problem I see here is that I should've been allowed to complete it even if the sun came up. If I started it at night, I should be able to complete it. The other issue here is how short night time is. Another issue, no ability to speed up day time by sleeping or fast traveling.
I've never agreed with putting Hunter Masks behind this ridiculous process. I preferred the way it was in the first Division, where you could get hunters in Heroic missions, or Underground. I enjoy fighting the Rogues in TD2, but I would've preferred Hunters in Heroic missions or Heroic Summit. The whole puzzle thing is cool and all, but you could've done this with patches or back pack trophies. Stuff that's nice to have, but not the coolest cosmetics in the game like Hunter Masks. And the whole puzzle stuff is dumb because most players just wait until a couple people figure each one out then just watch a youtube video on how to do it, which is what I'm doing right now. It's not even fun. I'd rather be playing the game like regular, versus putting it on Normal difficulty, and sitting around until it's night time in the game. Soooo boring.
