The game developers will temporarily suspend Division 2 players who took advantage of the exploit to progress quickly in the game, and their progress will be reverted.
The team behind Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 has stated that they will take action against players who utilized an exploit in the game’s Descent mode to unfairly accumulate excessive XP and SHD levels. Those who are found guilty will face temporary suspensions, and if they continue to engage in such behavior, their accounts may be permanently banned.
“We are aware that certain players have been exploiting a bug in the game that allowed players to join another player already in Descent through the Ubisoft Connect interface and gain unfair amounts of XP and SHD levels,” the announcement read, adding that the team has “identified individuals who have systematically used the exploits.”
Players who have utilized the exploit will face an immediate two-week suspension. Additionally, their accounts will be flagged, leading to extended suspension durations for subsequent violations, and repeat offenders may face permanent bans from playing The Division 2.
Furthermore, the progress made by players through the exploit will be nullified, effectively resetting any illegitimate advancements. The team emphasized that this action is crucial in order to guarantee fair and equitable competition for all players.
For those who are unfamiliar, crossplay is a functionality that enables players to participate in a game collectively, even if they are using different gaming platforms. Regrettably, The Division 2 does not provide support for crossplay. Undoubtedly, the lack of this feature poses a disadvantage for individuals who wish to enjoy the game alongside their friends who are using different platforms.
