The Division 2: Hunter Boss Fight Guide & Hunter Mask Locations

division 2 hunter boss

The endgame in The Division 2 becomes accessible to players once they hit level 30, and that opens up hunter bosses and hunter masks for people to obtain. After you've read our handy endgame unlock guide and gotten yourself to that point, what's there to do next? If you're feeling particularly like taking on other agents in Conflict Mode, then that option is open to you. However, if you're wanting to chew a little more on the excellent PvE experience that the game has to offer then it may be that taking out the elite AI Hunter enemies is more your speed.

The Hunters in The Division 2 are formidable enemies who are Level 35, which means that even players who have cracked The Division 2's endgame are going to struggle to take Hunters down in one way or another. They're enemies designed to pose as much of a challenge as possible to Agents, which means that any Division 2 Hunter boss is going to be an ordeal and a half.

Division 2 Hunter BossHow To Summon Hunters and More

Summoning a Hunter is half the battle sometimes. They're not just wandering around waiting for you to stumble upon them. You often have to do certain actions in specific locations so actually summon a Division 2 hunter boss to fight it and to take its mask.

Whether it's navigating certain portions of Washington D.C. or shooting at a lightbulb in a particular place, there's a myriad of different ways to lure out the Hunter bosses so it's important to make sure that you don't only have the locations down. They appear to be very sensitive to disturbances in the area so we would recommend dispatching other adversaries before starting to keep an eye out for your chosen Hunter.

Division 2 Hunter BossMask Locations

Ghost and Spectre masks

To find the Hunter carrying the Ghost and Spectre mask, you're going to need access to the Washington Monument. You'll have to explore the underground below the area to find a room with a screen that will mark three graves on your map.

Once you salute each grave site on your map (one in Control Point, one to the northeast of the Monument, and one in a field near the Monument). After you've paid your respects at every grave, you'll be able to go back to the Monument and track west to find a Missing Persons sign that will illuminate a Hunter perched on a container next to it. To get the Ghost mask, you have to one-shot this Hunter. If you want to get the Spectre mask, you'll have to comb the rooftops surrounding the northern area around the Monument and to snipe the Hunter that you find.

Midas and Revenant masks

In order to get the Midas and Revenant masks, you'll have to head to Hampshire Avenue NW in the Western portion of the map to an area that has a swimming pool. If you span the Jumping Jack emote, then you'll find that two hunters appear, and killing them both will get you the Midas and Revenant masks.

Wraith mask

If you want to get to Wraith mask, you need to head over to Capitol Hill. The landmark will have a memorial wall with a water feature, and you will have to make sure that you take a shot at the source of light that's casting shadows against the wall. Once you've done that, you'll have to stand behind the light being cast on the memorial and to salute it. Kill the Hunter that spawns for the Wraith mask.

Cross, Diamond, Death and Phantom masks

This quartet of masks represents the most complex ones to obtain. You'll need to have access to the Federal Triangle, where you'll then head to the park nearby the Control Point that has a Christmas tree in it. There's an office nearby which will have a desk with an accompanying lever. Pull this lever and return outside to lap the Christmas tree until smoke appears, signaling the arrival of three Hunters. Killing them will get you the Cross, Diamond and Death Hunter masks. After you've dispatched your foes, head cross the street outside the park to find a Hunter lying in wait and you'll be able to pry the Phantom mask from his cold, dead face.

Ghost mask

You'll need access to the Lincoln Memorial in order to pick up this mask. There's an SHD cache which will have an entrance to a sewer nearby. Follow the path until you find a room that has a laptop in it; once you've inspected the laptop, the game will shine a light on a map at the wall. Return back outside and try to find a piece of constructed terrain at the Memorial which has a light stuck to it. Shooting said light will make sure that a Hunter is spawned, and defeating him will pick up the Ghost mask.

Demon mask

The Demon mask can be found pretty close to The Division 2's first major landmark: the White House. You will have to go to the shopping mall in that part of the map and head down into the mall until you encounter a particularly placed platform with some windows across the way from it, each one framing a target. Take out the targets starting from the highest window to the lowest, and a Hunter will appear. Once you kill him, you'll be able to loot the Demon mask.

Crimson mask

To get this mask, you'll need to have access to Judiciary Square. There's an empty courtyard nearby which will be flanked by two walls, one containing a room with one door and another a room with two doors. You'll want to head for the room with two doors first and take a peek at the computer on the desk. Once you've done that, head to the other room and interact with the phone. Smoke will start pouring into the courtyard, and the Hunter carrying the Crimson mask will spawn.


Now that you've got a rundown of all the different Hunters that you can encounter in the endgame and what you need to do to summon them thanks to our Division 2 hunter boss guide, get out there and get those masks!
