The Division 2 Chatterbox Guide: The Never-Ending Bullet Rain
Currently, there are some of the best weapons in this game that gives you a lot of advantages. First, they are available inside a group with the code name of “Exotics.” Therefore, their color is orange and takes a lot of time to gather just one. Above all, the performance of these firearms is always distinguishable and always come with a precise gaming mechanic that makes them shine from the rest of the weapon repertoire. As a result, you need to spend a lot of time and gather all the luck you can get to get one of these beauties in your collection.
In this article we’ll focus on giving you The Division 2 Chatterbox Guide, that aims to help you in unlocking this specific Exotic Submachine Gun. Most noteworthy, this firearm comes with a faction “theme,” that connects it with the Hyena faction. Therefore, you’ll need to focus on gathering materials and finish missions that have these “annoying” NPCs (non-playable characters).
What makes the Chatterbox an Exotic weapon?
There are many positives when it comes to this SMG. Above all, it feels like you keep throwing bullets at your enemies, without the need for any reloads. Similarly, to some Light Machine Guns in the game, you keep the trigger button for prolonged periods. In contrast, though, this time around you don’t have the downside from all the reload times that this weapon’s family is known. In other words, you get to feel like you have an “eternal” clip that keeps on going, and when you ran out of bullets (rarely), the reload speed is practically fast.
This peculiar gaming mechanic can only be available with these Talents that the Chatterbox possesses:
- Incessant Chatter: “every shot landed grants 1% rate of fire to a max of 60%, which resets on reload.”
- Box Magazine: “Kills with the Chatterbox refill 20% of its magazine and grants a weapon buff for ten seconds. While the buff is active, every shot landed increases magazine capacity by 1 to a max of 60. Killing a target consumes the buff to refill the increased magazine fully.”
- Blabbermouth: “While holstered, reloading your weapon within five seconds after a kill grants a 20% rate of fire for 10s.”
Considering all the talents, you can quickly tell that, to be efficient, you need to land all of your shots to increase the fire rate and kill as much as possible to “refill” the magazine as you keep shooting. Therefore, it’s advisable that you focus on the weak “mobs” first and leave the Elites afterward. As a result, you’ll be cleaning the missions of any enemies that you encounter in practically no time. Above all, focus on critical landing hits to increase the damage per second as far as possible.

How can I unlock the Chatterbox in The Division 2?
To unlock the Chatterbox and have it on your collection, you need to follow some unusual steps:
1. Find Hyena Keys
Through the entire map, you may find opportunities to find some Hyena Keys lying around. Still, there are ways to shorten this hunting process. First, if there are Targets for this faction in the Bounty map, it’s advisable that you hunt them as soon as possible. Most noteworthy, each Bounty will drop a key every time. Another way to acquire keys is to walk around the “Underground” area. Therefore, if you already discovered one entrance, go ahead and look around for Boxes that contain these precious items.
2. Hyena Caches
Once you have gathered around ten to twenty keys, the next part to unlock the Exotic weapon is to find some caches around the map. One easy way to find such boxes is to look for those missions that have Hyenas as the primary enemies. As a result, when you’re completing the different objectives of a task, there’s always a chance that you’ll find a Cache hidden somewhere. If you didn’t know already, these boxes could only open with a Hyena Key, and they have a 24-hour cooldown. In other words, once you got the contents of a single Hyena Cache, you need to wait for a day to open the same Cache and get more items.
3. Farm the 3 Parts
Specific Hyena Caches give different pieces to complete the Chatterbox. Therefore, if you’re looking for one section, you need to travel and hunt for it in certain places of the map. First, the “Loaded Canister” is usually in caches around Downtown East. Secondly, the “Creative Mag” is in the Federal Triangle. Last but now least, the “Modified Mods” is found in Judiciary Square. Each of these pieces has a percentage for them to appear in a Cache. Therefore, you’ll probably have to spend a lot of time to gather all the components.

4. Get the Blueprint
Once you already have all the three pieces on your inventory, the last part you need to gather is the Blueprint. First, you need to play the “Bank Headquarters” (Downtown West) in Challenging difficulty. Head to the Vault, and this time around, another Hyena Cache will appear around. This time around, though, when you open the box, the Blueprint is a 100% chance drop. Therefore, it will appear on your first try.
Finally, head to the Base of Operations and craft your new Exotic Chatterbox in the Crafting Bench.
Time to Test the Chatterbox Effectiveness
Once you have assembled the Exotic Weapon, you have the option to try it first in the Shooting Range. Within a couple of seconds, you’ll be able to see why it earns the prestige of being in one of the best weapons currently available in the game. Most noteworthy, with this The Division 2 Chatterbox Guide, we hope that you get to experience the effectiveness of this firearm as soon as possible. As a result, you’ll probably want to check some incredible builds that can increase efficiency and increase your chances of success.
