Tom Clancy’s The Division: Glitch Allows Wearing Masks Outside Contaminated Zone

Tom Clancy’s The Division has various contaminated zones scattered throughout its open world which require the player to acquire masks. Once you have access to such a mask, you can go through the contaminated zone and your player will equip the mask in order to survive there.

Fortunately, there is a glitch that allows the player to keep the mask equipped even outside the contaminated zone. Here’s what you need to do in order to keep the mask equipped.

  • Equip a mask in the mask slot and head back to inventory.
  • Once you are out of the mask slot menu, you will need to inspect the mask you just equipped and quickly back out once it loads.
  • The mask will take a while to load but will remain there once you back out of inventory menu.


This trick allows the player to retain the mask for their appearance and it definitely looks cool. Although this trick won’t let other online players see the mask equipped by the user, but it is still cool trick nonetheless.
