The Division 2 XP Exploit Now Bannable Offense; Illegitimate Progression to Be Rolled Back

The Division 2 xp exploit

Massive Entertainment has clamped down The Division 2’s XP exploit, allowing players to join Descent matches and gaining large amounts of XP and SHD levels. First-time offenders of the exploit will be issued a two-week suspension, and multiple offences will result in a permanent suspension. Illegitimate progress made via this exploit will also be rolled back.

Here’s the full statement from The Division 2 team via Twitter (written in text for your convenience):



We want to take a moment to address an important matter concerning the Descent game mode. 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.

We take these issues very seriously and are committed to maintaining a fair and enjoyable gaming environment for all players. We have thoroughly investigated the situation and identified individuals who have systematically used the exploits.
As a result, we will be imposing appropriate sanctions on the players involved in accordance with our policies. First-time offenders who have exploited this feature will receive a two-week suspension starting immediately and will be unable to play Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 during this time. Furthermore, sanctioned players’ accounts will be flagged, and any further offence will result in an increased suspension duration. Multiple offences will result in a permanent suspension.

We will also be taking action to roll back illegitimate players’ progression. Sanctioned players’ accounts will be rolled back, causing all account progress through the exploit to be reset. We believe it is crucial to ensure that everyone has an equal opportunity to succeed and compete on a level playing field.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. We are committed to upholding the spirit of our game and providing you with the best possible gaming experience.
