There are 52 Cards divided into 4 Suits of Cards in The Division 2. Unlike traditional collectibles these are not simply located at fixed positions or picked up. Instead, they are all dropped by unique named enemies with yellow health bars in the game. This guide will show you the best farming method to get all cards reliably. Finding one set of cards unlocks the “Suits You, Sir!” trophy and achievement.

How to Get Cards in The Division 2
These cards are exclusively dropped by named enemies with yellow health bars that can only spawn in the open world (not in missions or dark zone). Each named enemy drops 1 card guaranteed but it’s random for which set. There is no way to find these as collectible pickups, they are all dropped by the named enemies with yellow health.
What makes this a bit annoying is that only 1 named enemy can spawn every 30 minutes (real time). Furthermore, if you die during an encounter with such an enemy they disappear and it takes another 30 minutes for a new named enemy to spawn.
Now the good news is that they can all be farmed at the same spot. Every 30 minutes a new named enemy will spawn in the same place. In total you have 52 potential cards. 30 minutes per card spawn x 52 cards = 1560 minutes (26 hours) to get them all. If you’re really lucky you might be done in about 10 hours playtime with the trophy / achievement “Suits You, Sir!” if you keep getting cards for the same set.
During the endgame (after the story) they will always spawn in the same spot every 30 minutes. During the story they have a low spawn chance. They can appear but might not be there, this is because the Black Tusk enemy faction doesn’t spawn until the endgame. That’s why you might not find them there during the story.
Suit of Cards Farming Location
Here are guaranteed spawn points where a named enemy always spawns every 30 minutes (after finishing the story). Please note that you cannot farm both at the same time. If you killed a named enemy no more can spawn on the entire map for 30 minutes. So if you kill someone in one spot, they won’t appear in the 2nd spot any sooner. Just stick to one spot to keep it simple.
Farming Spot #1 – South of White House: This is the best spot early on! It’s available right after the game’s prologue and it’s the lowest level area on the map. You can go here after every story mission, or whenever you go away for more than 30 minutes. This should be your go-to spot until you unlock fast travel to the District Union Arena Stronghold. In the early game the enemies have a lower spawn chance, after the story they will always be there.
Farming Spot #2 – Courtyard south of District Union Arena Stronghold: This one is just a few steps away from the Union Arena Stronghold, which you can fast travel to after having beaten it. You go to the Stronghold at the end of the story so this is better reserved for the endgame. Once you have the stronghold done you can fast travel to it (after the story it gets retaken by enemies and you must capture it again). This takes less walking than going from the White House to our first spot.
To reduce the grind, it is recommended that after every main mission you head to the farming spot near the white house, kill the yellow health bar enemy there with a name above their head. Then quickly run over their dropped loot the collect the card. When you pick it up it will show in the bottom left corner “New Collectible Acquired: Card Name”. With this strategy you will get lots of cards between missions. You can also set an alarm clock for every 30 minutes. Simply fast travel back to the White House after 30 minutes have passed and run back to the farming spot. Rinse and repeat. It’s a long process but you don’t have to actively play during those 30 minutes, you can just keep the game running.
In order to get all trophies and achievements you’ll have to do about 45 missions anyway (16 in the story, again 16 on hard, and in the endgame you have to replay a majority of missions once again). Missions tend to last 15-30 minutes. Realistically, if you start this early on, always keep a timer / stopwatch running, and get one card after each main mission, you should have one set of cards completed at some point in the endgame. If that takes you out of the experience too much you can just leave the game running and grab a card every 30 minutes.
That’s everything there is to know about The Division 2 Cards, may the luck be on your side with those random drops! Special thanks to PSN-Users “Infamous__Dan” for the first spot and “SlySinatra” for the second spot.
