A fan of The Division becomes the first person to reach the maximum rank of 99 in the Dark Zone, after an astounding 130 hours of playtime in the first week.
As someone eloquently put, “he’s got 99 problems, and free time ain’t one.” A fan of The Division has put in over 130 hours of the first week of the games launch, absolutely demolishing opponents in the Dark Zone and becoming what appears to be the first player ever to be able to confirm that level 99 is the highest Dark Zone ranking The Division players can achieve.
The feat was accomplished by a Redditor named Chammer88, who states that he stacked increased XP gear to get to the maximum ranking so quickly. Once he filled up the bar for rank 99, the game refused to grant any further levels, and his progress bar is now permanently frozen. Despite how difficult it must have been for Chammer88, he says it was an awesome grind, and he’s still having a fun time with The Division.
Chammer88 (who’s in-game name is Chaos 3SK) made the below video to give a good example of the route he took to attain the prestigious rank:
The player reportedly last died when he was on level 93, and he lost an astounding 85,000 Dark Zone experience points for his folly. The stakes are evidently pretty high at the top, and he is certainly one player we wouldn’t want to run up against as rogue agents.
Gamers looking to replicate his rise to absolute Dark Zone authority should check out this handy Dark Zone farming path, which will allow those going solo the ability to quickly gather up experience and collectibles in one smooth circuit. While Chammer88 mastered the Dark Zone faster than anyone else, we also have a guide on how to level up quickly for those progressing through the main game itself.
Those who doubt the player’s claim to fame can take a look here at a stat-tracking website for The Division, which also reveals that Chammer88 has racked up over 14,500 kills under his The Division account. The source isn’t an official one, but for the time being, it looks like his record-setting account is in good standing.
We wouldn’t recommend playing that much in such a short period of time, as it means the player barely had time to get 5 hours of sleep each day before jumping back into the Streets of Manhattan, and that’s not even accounting for the time the servers went down. We’re all for dedicated agents, but there are probably healthier ways to set records.
What do you think about the player’s feat, Ranters?
