Ubisoft's The Division in PC is now being swarmed by bugs and glitches. Some players also use third-party hacks to cheat in PvP competition. However, developers of the game warned that players who are caught using hacks or cheats will face a suspension or become permanently banned. Now, here's what is currently known about The Division tips, guides, and cheats.
The Division's update on April 12 gave PC players opportunity to report other players who are caught cheating. In an N4BB report, the punishment for the reported players will be a 3-day suspension, and the most severe is becoming permanently banned.
Meanwhile in a The Guardian report, Sxyhxy, the most popular The Division streamer, discussed glitches, cheats, and hackers in a live stream video. With over 3,000 live viewers, he discussed his frustration about the problems of the game. Furthermore, the streamer went to a PvP in the Dark Zone, where he encountered a hacker named BorrBurison. Sxyhxy asked the hacker if he had ever been punished. BorrBurison replied, "Ubisoft isn't really working hard enough on that."
With that, Ubisoft might not be doing their part to punish players who are cheating and using hacks.
The Guardian asked the game developer for a statement about the glitches that players encountered. The company said that they are now adjusting their processes and policies. It will help them to track better and deter exploiters in line with industry standards, fairness and respect for The Division Community. They also stated that they will reveal more details about this in the next couple of days.
"With Update 1.1 now behind us, and Update 1.2 in the works, we also want to briefly mention our ongoing work related to bug exploits," Ubisoft added.
Widespread cheating is continuously ruining The Division. One of these cheating activities is called 'exploit.' It is said to be a common phenomenon in multiplayer online games, especially on PC. One of the known exploits in the game is the Bullet King Exploit. Bullet King is known to be a Non-Player Character (NPC) who's just outside in one of the safehouses. Players figured out that they could loot him if they kill him and not his lackeys. If he died and respawned, players could repeatedly do the exploit again.
Ubisoft hopes to have a long-term franchise in the Division, but with the issues of cheating mostly in PC version, the game's future is now threatened.
