PC cheats plague The Division's beta

Ubisoft says it's just 'glitches'

PC participants of The Division’s beta claim the game is rife with cheaters.

According to reports by Eurogamer, players can manually alter their XP level and ammo count. This means if you head out into the Dark Zone (which is manic enough as is without cheaters, let's be honest) you may be facing players with infinite ammo and hyper-speed movement, essentially rendering the player invisible as the game can’t keep up with the movements.

Ubisoft responded on the official forum

"Guys, so you're aware the things discussed here are not in fact hacks or cheats, but merely abuse of glitches that exist in the game currently," writes community manager Natchai. "These glitches are currently being worked on by the team."

According to some players, however, the problem is bigger than just glitches. 

"This is not just lack of anticheat, it is global networking architecture fuckup," reported a player on reddit. "I highly doubt that this will be fixed any time soon after release. You probably might wanna stay away from PVP area while this problem is present."

"We're on it," community developer Hamish Bode told another player on Twitter. "Don't you worry your pretty little face."

The beta has been extended by 24 hours so if you’ve yet to receive a key, keep your fingers crossed… uh, unless you’re down for a PC key. In which case, you might want to give the Dark Zone a bit of a miss... 

The Division is scheduled to release on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on March 8, 2016.
