Whether Ubisoft will Punish People Who Take Advantage of The Division's Incursion Exploit

The Division Date: Apr/18/16 17:16:27 Views: 686

Many changes to the game are broght due to this week's Incursions update to The Division, including Falcon Lost - the most difficult mission to date. It's considered end-game content, and Ubisoft won't even let people play it unless their entire group has achieved a minimum gear score. The boss is level 34, something that's found nowhere else in the game.

 

Shortly after the update, players figured out a way to glitch the end encounter. The process involves using the mobile cover skill to clip through a wall. Doing so prevents the game from registering that you're in the room, meaning your group can fire on the boss without it firing back.

 

It's a fun realization, but Ubisoft doesn't see it that way. The developer took to the game's forums to say that it's working on a fix for the glitch. More importantly, Ubisoft mentions that partaking violates the code of conduct and that it's "looking into what can be done in terms of punishment for those who have exploited."

 

That "looking into" won't necessarily translate to a real punishment; if it does, players can probably expect nothing much more strict than a slap on the wrist. Ubisoft recently said that it's going to start handing out three-day bans for PC cheaters, followed by permanent bans. This isn't necessarily the same thing, though. This is an exploit of in-game circumstances, not the willful and wanton hacking of the game.

 

You can't blame the water for finding a hole in the boat. In fact, it should probably go unpunished. Ubisoft should fix it, and chalk it up to a "my bad."
