The Division facing hit registration issues, unresponsive NPCs


Since the The Division is primarily an online only game hit registration issues and glitches were to be expected. Thankfully this¬†specific issues aren’t as widespread and probably due to the high traffic.

A brief description of the issue: Game NPCs will not notice you and bullets will simply not register when shot. Everything else works including movement and the menus but the game servers will simply not record your progress.

The issue would often fix itself after a minute or two but sometimes woul require a hard reset.


Below are some examples of the hit registration problems I personally faced earlier today:

Hopefully developers Ubisoft Massive fix this soon as it was happening so frequently to me that I was stuck on a mission for 30mins and decided to take a break.
