The Division: 138 weapons and 26 missions discovered in data-mining leak

2 min read


The Division still has an entire day before it’s here, but that hasn’t stopped some fans from seeking more information on Ubisoft’s upcoming tour of New York. So how do you get the scoop on what’s to come when your friendly neighbourhood publisher is being less forthcoming than Johnny Tight-lips (Ey, who says I got a mother)? By data-mining the hell out of the pre-loaded game, in a setup that I hope involves actual drilling equipment, shafts and magical dwarves.

An alleged data-mining operation over on these two Reddit fronts has listed around 200 000 audio files, weapons both in-game and DLC, mission names and boss fights. If you want to avoid any potential spoilers, I suggest averting your gaze right now. According to the leak from Itsgamerdoc, at least two DLC missions turned up: Kill The Tank and Drones, while the missing New York borough of Brooklyn was also alluded to quite often.

Other finds include a new faction, the Russian mafia known as the Bratva, suicide dogs, APCs, tanks and choppers. All content which has been cut out from the final game. If you’re the kind of gun nut who has a Charlton Heston poster on the wall opposite your collection of actual rifles that are purely there for home defense and to encourage responsible dating when suitors come to see your daughter, then more good news: The Division will have lots of guns.

According to this spreadsheet, you can expect to play around with 138 guns, all based on real-world weapons. Guns such as the M44 Carbine, Glock 30 and SOCOM SCAR-L. Itsgamerdoc also threw in a list of all weapons talents, a list of weapon attachments an armour list. That’s just the stuff pulled from the data-mining mind you. There’s most likely still more details undiscovered.

Well, until later today at least when The Division servers go live.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

  • Commander Admiral Chief

    My pre-load is ready.

    My poor DSL took a beating over this weekend, massive Warframe patch, Division download. I feel for the poor thing

    • True, poor PC was turned on for most of the weekend just pulling updates.

      • Commander Admiral Chief

        Did you play a bit of WF?

        • No, but I see there is a new frame a crap ton of new content.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Mine is busy building, will be ready Wed evening 😀

          • Commander Admiral Chief

            LOL nice, I was downloading Division most of the weekend, so hit some XCOM 2 instead of WF

    A little birdie told me a certain fruity community member has a birthday today…

    • Guava_Eater

      not me… the birdy or the birthday… 😛

      • Commander Admiral Chief

        Nope, a different fruit

  • Commander Admiral Chief

    I’m a HUUUUGE SCAR-H fan

  • Commander Admiral Chief
  • 26 missions seems a bit low for people who do not want to PVP

    • Hammersteyn

      But that’s the thing, they want people to spend most of their time in the Drak Zone

      • If it’s anything like the Beta, then this game will have a limited lifespan

        • HairyEwok

          Agreed. Great game mechanic with poor execution and content. But I guess the content will grow over time with highly priced DLC.

        • Hammersteyn
        • Jonah Cash

          I played 7 hours on the last beta and only entered the dark zone once for about 30 minutes or so. Think I should get at least 50 hours out of it and that will be more than enough for me. The game feels good to me, the movement is ok, the gunplay very good and the story has been done but it never gets old for me. I am eagerly awaiting the launch now.

  • HairyEwok

    Not sold on this game at all, giving it the skip.

  • Jonah Cash

    I have already pre-loaded and I am now just waiting on the servers to go live! Super excited to get back to it.
