A YouTube Channel puts myths to the test in The Division, uncovering some neat tips and tricks plenty of agents will want to put into practice.
The Division has proven massively popular with PC and console gamers alike, and we’ve spent a solid amount of hours ourselves exploring the city (read our review here). That being send, The Division has many secrets and Easter Eggs littered among the streets of Manhattan, and many questions about possible gameplay tips and tricks have gone unanswered. That is, until now.
YouTube channel DefendTheHouse has gone full-on Mythbusters mode, and have discovered some interesting facts about The Division that many gamers probably don’t know. Ranging from the fact that no enemy will attack a player who remains in an elevator to the fact that players are unable to kill two enemies with the same sniper shot, we’re sure many avid players of The Division will find the below video quite interesting.
Without further ado, let’s take a gander at the The Division Mythbusters video:
Aside from having a surprisingly catchy door-slamming introduction, the Mythbusters video covers some serious ground in terms of gameplay mechanics, especially when it comes to reviving the same player twice. Not only can players do this, but the downed player will automatically get back up again if this occurs, though this obviously won’t help those who prefer to play solo.
The video also shows that smart cover (which can be unlocked by upgrading the security wing) can be made into a portable tool. To do so, players can simply put it on another teammate’s shield, and then the squad can continue moving across the map with the smart cover’s area of effect consistently covering anyone near the shield-bearing player.
This looks like an oversight from Ubisoft Massive, and we wouldn’t be surprised to see the mobile smart cover trick removed from the game in the future. Interestingly, this isn’t the first time a ballistic shield has been involved with a glitch, though it certainly is the less evil of the two.
Myths aside, we’ve written some helpful guides on The Division that don’t need further testing to see if they’re good – they are. Here’s a good path to farm the Dark Zone, where to find every collectible, and how to farm those high-end weapons.
