As you play through the Story Mode in Tom Clancy’s The Division 2, you’ll encounter various cutscenes that provide added detail to the game world your character inhabits. If you’re short on time, or simply uninterested in the story as a whole, you can skip past any and all cutscenes. To skip past a cutscene, you’ll either need to press and hold the X button on Xbox One or Square on PlayStation 4.

On PC, you can press and hold either E or F to skip past a cutscene. In doing so, you’ll automatically skip past the cutscene you’re currently viewing. If there’s a cutscene after the one you’ve skipped, you can use the method above to skip past that one as well. Note that unlike games including Kingdom Hearts 3, there appears to be no easy way to rewatch a cutscene once you’ve skipped past it.

As such, it’s advised that you skip past cutscenes at your own discretion.
