Have hackers and cheats ruined The Division on PC? | The Guardian

In financial terms, Tom Clancy’s The Division is a hugely successful video game. Released in March by French publisher Ubisoft, this New York-set third-person shooter quickly became the best selling new franchise of all time, generating more than $330m in sales in its first five days.

Players stack items for unintended bonuses, farm missions in seconds, and – worst of all – using third-party hacks to cheat in player vs player (PvP) competition.
