Ubisoft’s open world, The Division is going through rough times at the moment. The last couple of weeks have been devastating for the company as cheaters and hackers have taken over the game and started wreaking havoc in all of the post-apocalyptic New York areas. The company declared that they are doing everything they can to stop the rampage before the game itself becomes an abandoned land forsaken of hope.
It seems that The Division is going through rough times. People are starting to complain about the fact that they can’t play anymore due to the fact that there are cheaters out there, boosting the power of their weapons, making them capable of mass destruction.
Last week a few people managed to find a way to bring external tools into the game, giving themselves a serious advantage. Of course, if it involves tools from the outside you could easily call it a cheat, but it was extensively used, and it angered the fair-playing population.
Now, something similar is happening. Players discovered a glitch that allows them to temporarily boost the power of their weapons thousands of times. One single shot is capable of wreaking havoc in Tom Clancy’s world, scaring the players who just want to play a fair, open world, post-apocalyptic game.
The new exploit is fairly easy to get buy. All players have to do is acquire or own a gun with a particular talent, more exactly, the “Competent” feature that boosts DPS for short amounts of time.
If you don’t have such a weapon, all you need is a couple of phoenix credits, and you can go to the vendor store and buy one. Presently the shop has an AK-47 on sale that features the “Competent” talent.
Once you get your hands on such a powerful weapon you must then equip it. The next step is fitting another gun and then switch between them for about five minutes. It’s a menial task, but the end result is worth it.
After switching the guns for a sufficient amount of time, a bug in the game will boost the DPS. Just so you understand how powerful the bug makes a player, imagine that an 115,000 DPS can go to 1,115,000 in five minutes of switching.
This enormous amount of energy is currently used by players to destroy Tom Clancy’s post-apocalyptical New York. The Division is going through rough times at the moment, but Ubisoft promised to fix the problem in the near future.
