The Division Glitches

Under the Map Glitch

This glitch has you fall under the map.

Glitch Cause: During the “Talk to Jessica Kandel at the Base” objective, right before entering the Base (to unlock the Medical Wing) you risk falling straight through a patch of icy / snowy ground outside. Pay attention to avoid weird-looking textures.

Glitch Solution: You’ll fall until you end up standing under the city map. Then the game will notify you will be respawned in a few seconds due to you appearing “Outside playable area”. Sadly any icy / snowy ground in front of the Base entrance will cause you to fall under the map again and again, so you are forced to restart the game to play again.

Verify Identity Glitch

The verify identity is not working at the beginning of the game at your Base of Operations during the “Make contact with Division Agent Faye Lau” Objective.

Glitch Cause: The verify identity activation will not complete or too many people are in the way of the door to Division Agent Faye Lau and are not letting you go through to contact her (which is the objective).

Glitch Solution #1: Log out and log back in. To log out go to the Pause/Inventory screen where it says log out with the Triangle button on PS4 / Y button on Xbox One. That’s where you log out of The Division back to the Character Select screen. Then log back in to see if it’s less crowded and lets you into the door to Faye Lau.
Glitch Solution #2: If you’re on PC and the first solution doesn’t work, then to solve the problem pay attention to this: when you log off and it gives you a mike error message, try uninstalling the Beta and it should work.
Glitch Solution #3: The issue should disappear after the game’s launch week crowd subsides. Basically, right now the servers cannot handle in huge login load all at the same time.
