PSA: Watch out for these tricky Rogues in The Division Closed Beta

Looks like these Rogue Agents don't want to play by the rules...


The Division Beta is in full swing, and since it has been extended until Tuesday we wanted to take a moment and let you guys know about a few things that have been plaguing the game's PVP-oriented area, The Dark Zone.

If you've spent any amount of time in the Dark Zone then you've probably either been killed by a Rogue, or gone Rogue yourself to score some sweet new gear. Either way, these are things that both new and experienced players should be aware of.

The first thing kind of falls on bad game design for the beta when it comes down to it. But beware of rogue players near the boundary lines of the Dark Zone. It has become increasingly popular to "go rogue", kill a few players, and then escape into the "OUT OF BOUNDS" area where players are automatically transferred into the nearest safe zone where they can wait out their bounty in safety. It's a bit of a cheat and it's pretty sad that players are already resorting to this kind of behavior in a beta, but it's something you should watch out for.

The other thing we really want to mention is something called "Rogue Tagging", which is where a player tags you with a single shot from their weapon, just enough to get your attention but not go rogue. What they want you to do in turn is whip around and lay into them, making yourself rogue in the process so they can kill you and get the bounty. This is a tactic being used widely across the game, and it's something you should all be aware of if you're planning on spending more of your time in New York's Dark Zone this weekend.

That's all the intel we've got for you right now, Agent. What are you waiting for? New York isn't going to save itself.

      I'm getting constant PC hard lock every 3 to 5 minutes in game. I've tried every solution offered on their board and nothing works. I meet all the hardware requirements.

      What little I've played is cool, but there's no way I'm buying this thing anywhere close to release now.

        Holy canola oil. That's terrible. I haven't had any issues running it this weekend. Strange how things can vary so greatly between hardware differences. :C
