A new exploit hits The Division for unlimited damage

    
65
Shoot pile.

What’s the ideal amount of DPS for a weapon in The Division? Higher numbers are better, definitely, but an endlessly climbing number probably seems like it might have balance issues. Unfortunately, another exploit has wound up in the game, allowing players to boost their DPS to an arbitrarily high number. Which isn’t technically “unlimited,” yes, but once you reach the point that a single shot will kill anything a dozen times over isn’t that just splitting hairs?

You can see the exploit in action in a video below, although it’s fair to point out that you should not attempt to recreate this exploit unless you want to get caught and punished. No word yet on what sort of punishment that will be, though, as players still haven’t gotten a definitive punishment for people who exploited the last major known glitch. This is an ongoing struggle for Ubisoft.

Only to find another exploit.
With (again) the cover, they push the tank to explode.
Or you can also teleport on top of the tank and make the NPC kill the tank for you.
This game is a joke…and don’t get me started on the RNG for loots.

This glitch has now apparently been patched out of the game and should no longer work as described and shown in this article.

Changelog] April 21 2nd maintenanceHere is the list of changes implemented with the server restart of April 21:
Fixed a bug where players could revive others twice by holding the Revive keyFixed a bug where Talent effects could be stacked by repeatedly switching the equipped weapon. This should also resolve the recent server instability that was due to the increased traffic generated by this bug

I think… forget the bans…
Focus on getting rid of the Exploits/Cheat programs then wipe the server. (or spool up a zero exploit/zero tolerance server, then close the old one when the exploiters get bored and move on to a new game)

This game has good combat and skills/talents system.
Chat fonctionnality is laking.
There is no clan/guild to make a good group.
There is not enough end game for now. Defeat incursion on challenge mode, basically a room with waves of mobs coming at you, then there is the Dark Zone filled with exploiters and hackers that one shot you.
The game is filled with exploits and bugs feels like a bad alpha/beta stage. No quick action from Ubi/Massive.
Complete RNG on all gears is frustrating. You spend hours doing something without even being sure you will be rewarded.
Me and friends stopped playing.
Waste of time, don’t buy and wait see if they fix it somehow (good luck with that!).

There was no need to post a training video of the exploit in this article.  Sure enough anyone that wanted to find out how to do it wouldn’t have to go far to find it, but I think you stepped across the line between reporting on an exploit and encouraging an exploit here.

A large part of the responsibility for this game going down so fast is obviously with Ubisoft and Massive, I don’t think anyone can deny that.  They left too many bugs in the game for exploits not to turn up, and then their response to exploitation has been very slow and lacking in any definitive action.  The behavior of the community managers has been poor, playing with exploiters and also sending out bad messages about it on their personal twitter accounts.

As a result people feel like they can cheat with impunity, and youtubers and twitchers are having a field day racking up huge view numbers by focusing on posting glitch tutorials.  They always add a tag line like “only posting this so Ubisoft will fix it”, but obviously they are posting it to get views and don’t give a shit about the bugs.  You even see people advertising their glitch videos in Ubisofts own game forum without any kind of action being taken.  

People posting videos of themselves glitching should have been permanently banned from the outset along with everyone in their group in the video.  You can bet the next video they posted would be a massive cry video about how they got banned and “it’s not fair” etc and this would have sent a very clear message that cheating is not allowed.  It would serve to discourage others and also help to prevent the rapid proliferation of game breaking bugs.  Streamers have ruined this game for the sake of a few thousand views, and Ubisoft have let them do it.

Now that we have the unlimited DPS bug circulating around the streams that is also being used more and more, the unlimited season pass rewards bug, the 500k credits for a headshot bug, the 2 million health bug, the 2 million electronics bug, etc etc etc.

They are patching a couple out today, the APC will no longer take damage from anything other than the C4 charge and the means of glitching outside, this will stop people using the 2 million dps bug to 2 shot the APC from OUTSIDE the incursion.  You could solo farm the APC in 5 mins doing this.

Hacking is another problem that Ubisoft don’t seem able to get on top of, they don’t seem to have a clearly communicated action plan on how and when they will improve anti-cheat.  I see people I reported for teleporting still in game and hacking despite the ticket being answered with the usual “we will do something but can’t tell you what because it violates their privacy” or whatever.  There are wall hacks, big head hacks to make everyones head big to shoot it easier, rate of fire hacks, teleporting and flying hacks, and so on.

The game is in a desperate state, and half the community seems to be arguing that anyone objecting to all the glitching is a salty fuck and shouldn’t play because other peoples actions don’t affect them.  Well, they do.  Given that a large part of the end game is the Dark Zone it is a bit of a pain to get rolled by folks with full 240 gear sets they glitch farmed, 2 million dps glitchers etc.  Almost every fight has a hacker or a glitcher, and it’s shit.

At this point I can’t see any way forward for them other than offering to refund everyone’s season pass and handing out a free game then not actually giving them their money back or the free game code like they did with AC Unity.

Craywulf I know, right. I was on the fence about it at release as a few friends jumped on the pre-order bandwagon, but I wanted to wait and see the problems of the first couple months. I’m so glad I dodged that bullet (pun intended).
Every other week there seems to be some game-breaking exploit. I guess that’s what you get when you use free “QA” testers instead of paid QA testers. Also, Ubi.
