There’s two ways to play The Division: You can jump into it and run around New York as you hug anything that can block a bullet, or you can spend your hours looking for exploits. Games like The Division are massive sandboxes where bugs and glitches can pop up in the most unexpected of places. It allows for the game to be slyly tinkered with, exploiting the environment to create instances such as the Bullet King event where everybody was drowning in purple drops.

What’s hilarious here, is that each update that is meant to fix The Division, usually winds up creating a whole new set of problems. The Division’s latest Conflict update has introduced its own set of issues, that range from a User Interface that looks like it’s over the legal limit, missing characters and weapons which apparently break the laws of gravity. Here’s a rundown of the bugs that Ubisoft is currently looking to fix:

New with Update 1.2

[Gameplay] High Value Targets Farming
[Gameplay] Electronics store teleport
[Gameplay] Daily High Value Targets reset
[Gameplay] No Critical Search & Destroy
[Interface] Double UI Overlay
[Technical] Graphics distortion
[UI] Mark as Junk not working
[UI] Items DZ rank requirement change

[Gameplay] One is None

[Gameplay] DZ06 teleport

Under investigation

[Gameplay] Floating Weapons
[Gameplay] Falling Through Map
[Collectible] Echo Activation / Record
[Incursion] Missing Reward / Incursion
[Item] Paramedic bag
[Mission] Repeating Daily Hard/Challenging Missions
[Skill] Ballistic Shield
[Skill] Mobile Cover status
[Talent] Combat Medic
[Talent] Combat Medic & Smart Cover/Sticky Bomb
[Talent] Vigorous
[Talent] Tech Support & Pulse
[Interface] DZ Rank
[Interface] Uplay Friend Invites
[Connectivity] Disconnection Fast Travel
[Connectivity] Lag / Performance Dark Zone
[Connectivity] ROMEO error on first login
[Technical] CTD / Peripherals

To properly sort all of this out (and hopefully herald the return of a new Bullet King, may his purp drops be ever in your favour amen), The Division servers will go offline this morning for two hours at 11AM local time, or 2 AM PST/5 AM EST for American readers. Which might be slightly torturous, because I’m really digging those high-value target missions lately.

That should sort out all of these problems then. And introduce a few new ones. Because The Division would feel a little bit lacking without one of these trademark bugs.

  1. I was super pissed last night, even more bugs, DZ is kak difficult alone, there is NO one in the new bracket (201+) and if you join a squad your inventory is all messed up after the match (item overlaying etc)

    Seriously thinking about leaving it

        I hope Ubisoft takes note, and Ghosts won’t be an shared world shooter and just a 4 player co op and they can add some MP separately if they really want .

          I hope they at least code Ghosts better so that it’s not so full of hackers

        Well I think it would have been more fun if you could actually have joined us on release, and not so late the game, I am happy with the purchase spend a 100 hours in the game and 90% of that time was fun, now DOOm is the flavour I like.

          I had great fun in the game, but with all of the hacking it ruined the experience, to the extent where I will be utilizing the space reserved on my hdd for this on something way more productive, like cat memes…

            True it was good, but as it stands now I will only jump back in if they fix it.

            I’m doubtful, they spent 5 or 6 years creating this, reviewing all that code will cause another delay…

          Agreed, but my biggest problem is there’s not really anything there to keep you playing. Except better gear which is the same as previous gear but just higher stats. Also the gunplay is down right boring compared to Destiny.

            Destiny was just in a class of it’s own, such a good fluid shooter until doom , now Destiny might feel slow.

            Dead slow, DOOM was worth the wait, let’s just hope it’s not another ten years for the next one

            I walked into my old friend Whiskey last night and we started talking…. I regret everything. At least Tequila didn’t roll with him.

      The DZ is fun in numbers, Destiny has the same problem, when your friends stop playing there’s not much left to do.

    Has Ubisoft released anything that works as it should in the past 5 years? I feel like an idiot for buying this game and being complacent about Ubisoft releasing a lot of broken things into the world.

    For some or other reason I don’t have any issues with this game. No problems whatsoever. Most of the problems are probably PC based. I still enjoy the game, however, yes when your friends disappear, there is not much to do in the game. Maybe sneak around the DZ or work on a new build. To me its still worth playing. Stoked about Wildlands though.
