Can always fallback to a controller. That being said, you're gimping yourself playing with a controller. The beauty of PC is the ability to customize controls. If all you can find is WASD Q and E, R is pretty easy for reload, T is just getting muscle memory to stretch your hand. V for healing is another stretch. CTRL and Shift should be pretty easy as well. Personally, I use scroll wheel up for weapon 1, scroll wheel down for weapon 2, 3 to switch to my pistol.

If you have a mechanical keyboard you can get these WASD switches to help you better locate WASD without looking and keep your fingers there.

The biggest thing people fail to do with a mouse/keyboard setup is run a super high sensitivity. You think of it this way, with a controller, your muscle memory of your thumbs is moving maybe an inch to control all motion of turning/aiming. With a mouse, you can adjust this to a MUCH larger area, gain more precision but at the same time have a much snappier response to move.

These are my tips for using a mouse...

  • Get yourself an oversized mouse pad. At least start with something that's 12"x10", but I would suggest looking into something bigger. Mine is 15.75" tall (400mm) and 35.4" wide (900mm) and gives a TON of room for my mouse to move around.
  • Turn down the DPI on your mouse (if you have the setting) to something along 400 or 800 DPI. Then make sure you adjust your in game sensitivity. Typically people say around ~10-12 inches per 180 degrees of rotation of your character, but you can adjust this what you like. But I like having the ability to do a full 360 if I move my mouse across the desk pad.
  • Move the mouse with your arm, use your wrist to make fine adjustments. You'll greatly increase your ability to move around (why you need desk pad space) and you'll quickly build up your muscle memory. You want small movements of your hand to equal small movements on screen.

So far, it's quite good for the $200 I spent on it. I actually had a 780 GTX for the last year, and it just died a few days ago. I'm going to get them to replace it for free, but I'm super impatient...and while The Division actually played admirably on Low Graphics with an ancient 580 GTX (from 2011!), like 40-50 FPS, that obviously doesn't cut it, so I ordered this 960 GTX for $200.

So far it's slightly exceeding the 780 GTX, which fits my benchmarking expectations. But I'm an odd case: I prefer framerate over all other things, so I'm only playing in 1920 x 1080 at High Detail (with some Ultra sprinkled in, but only things that matter, i.e. no super shadows). So it's running at a nice silky 80 FPS at those settings, but some folks have higher resolution expectations. It might not be as spiffy at 2550x1440 with the same settings--I don't know. Or, it might be way faster and able to play smoothly even at that resolution. I should benchmark it tonight...

I certainly still plan to upgrade to the Pascal cards when they come out, but that's also partially because I'm a VR wonk and already know how the Rift DK2, let alone the commercial version, was very demanding on the 780 GTX running any demo or game.

Also, once that super load happened yesterday post-patch (it was like 20 (!!!) minutes in total) it's been back to normal since then. Of course, for The Division "normal" load times are still pointlessly long (on a spiffy Samsung SSD no less), but at least they aren't staying at the comical level of yesterday.

No I actually know how to use it just fine. I’ve got scripts, access to a PC, had no issues with the coding and flashing. No technical issues. But it’s overkill. Most of what it can do better players already do anyway. And it feels like they do it better than the device does. There’s a lot you can script but why do any of that when you can just practice and achieve similar results? Then there’s input lag. I’ve seen videos of players running it with no problems. Me? I consistently had input lag on every game. When it wasn’t lagging it was fine, but it was 50/50 and that’s annoying enough to leave it shelved. Maybe I have too much EM interference but I’m not going to create a Faraday cage just to play a video game. If the key to doing a good part of what I’d want it for is just developing muscle memory and it’s laggy then that’s not enough to make me fall in love with it.

I also have the programmable Strike Pack. I like that device quite a bit although it lacks the flexibility of the CM. It also has less input lag than a CM, which is what made me feel the CM was clunky. What I don’t like is its poor fit around my controller. If it fit better I’d use it more often. Maybe it works better with older PS4 DS4s? But it’s interesting enough to tempt me to buy a Scuf or one of the other pro kits

If you’re looking for peripherals that will really give you an edge on console you’re better served by a Xim, a mechanical keyboard, a gaming mouse, and a large surface to use the mouse with. It won’t give you snap shotting or super quick zoom and shoot but it makes every shot more precise. That alone will put you ahead of even the best controller jockeys. The trade off is you need a desk or coffee table setup appropriately.


u/anengineerandacat · 10 pointsr/thedivision

Actually have two of the books, got the one released like in March and it goes over day-by-day the events leading up to DC.


Some key events and organizational information on the Division Agents;


December 18-20th Directive 51 is issued releasing the first-wave agents into NYC

Next year Jan 1-5th first-wave agents in DC are activated

Jan 6th second-wave agents are activated in NYC

Jan 7th President Waller dies from cardiac arrest (rumor is that it was green-poison)

April 9th President Mendez dies from "suicide", secret service is assumed compromised; in-game president Ellis is new POTUS

July Ellis goes "missing" and black tusk run rampant in DC (current in-game month)


The book highlights some origin with the concept of "Division" agents starting in 1940 with some discussion on 9/11 and George W. Bush (some realism stuff I assume tossed in) but important to note the game-lore government has been working on agents like this for quite some time.


It's also highlighted the structure of power for access to Division agents (it's not just the POTUS);

  1. POTUS
  2. Vice President
  3. National Security Advisor
  4. National Continuity Coordinator
  5. Continuity Policy Coordination Committee

    Prior to Directive 51 the NEA (National Emergencies Act) existed providing congress to rescind emergency authority; this was changed and Directive 51 super-sedes the NEA and doesn't require the president to notify congress (this seems to reason the amount of corruption at the top).


    The Division also has a support structure internally (not just Agents running amock with President's orders) they have three underlying operational cores (R&D, Support, Operations) with operations being further split (Internal Affairs, Strategic, and Tactical).


    Likely everyone knows but Division agents have supreme authority (no one outranks their status if it's in their mission responsibilities) meaning they have direct control of DCD (Disease Control Division), CERA (Catastrophic Emergency Response Agency), and the JTF (Joint Task Force).


    Division agents come from all backgrounds however their is a strict vetting process and Sr Division Agents handle the final bits of recruitment; extreme testing is done in VR environments and tons of mental and health checks are required (list is hellah long) though a call-out is specific to agents having extreme mental resilience and mental strength (essentially all agents are geniuses with no real fear; combat skills can be lacking if a candidate excels in the mental aspects).


    Won't go into detail with training because it's standard stuff however their final act is the embedding of the agent (civilian jobs primarily ranging from teachers to paramedics and police).


    Saving the best for last, there is a single page dedicated to Rogue Agents and Aaron Keener (funnily enough his ID card is scratched out in the book, he is O- though and is 34 years of age and his embedded status was as a Futures Trader). In short, rogue agents came to be when the JTF betrayed the first-wave agents and left them stranded in the Dark Zone; Aaron Keener rounded up fellow agents that felt the same way and they abandoned the protocol for Continuity of Government creating alliances with other factions. It's called out in Keener's page that he formed an elite group of agents who pledged loyalty to him and he in turn would eliminate those that didn't follow him.


    Notable additional info on rogue agents; quite a few agents under Keener were captains for the LMB during the NYC events, after Bliss was killed the LMB group disbanded (weren't wiped out) however the remnants did not favor Aaron Keener as they felt betrayed by him (along with the allied factions, their shared common ground). It's also noted in Charles Bliss's profile that the surviving LMB have likely found "new leadership" (doesn't specify much more).


    Moving forward, the Black Tusk are the unique faction to be; it's called out that they have taken control of majority of the military bases in the US along with power-grids, ISP's, media networks, and more. Notable callout is that they have a long history of working in the shadowy portions of the government and have been involved in handling conflict zones across the world (Latin America, Middle East, Southeast Asia, North America) with their primary directives being to "cleanse, pacify, and police the emerging new America".


    Honestly, if you really like TD2 and you want more lore; this book scratches some of the itches (especially for the factions as not much really exists in-game).


    Book in question:


    Should mention my own personal opinion on the hunters: I personally feel they are an elite unit directly serving with Aaron Keener, I think with his experience and mental capacity that he has formed his own "Division" and has embedded these agents in the factions that we fight today (including the Black Tusk). SHD tech seems to still be the gold-standard of technology and by eliminating the Division he empowers his own unit with the very same technology.
u/rydogg707 · 1 pointr/thedivision

A few years ago I upgraded to the Logitech G710+ Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with Tactile High-Speed Keys and the SteelSeries Sensei Laser Gaming Mouse in hopes of getting better. Played a bunch of Battlefield 4 on it, was ok. But when I got BF4 on sale for the Xbox later... man it was seriously night and day how much better I was with a controller.

Funny thing is, I'm really good at World of Warcraft PvP with his keyboard mouse set up. But when you think about it, you have sticky target. You don't aim, all you have to do is move around. That helped me figure out what I can't get down in FPS, the combination of moving AND aiming!

I'm a straight up weirdo! Haha.

u/sillysocks404 · 2 pointsr/thedivision

I love this idea. I actually just bought the survival guide book IRL (New York Collapse) and have really liked getting to know the story more. I found it a little difficult to follow the details of the story in-game because of how it's presented, collecting phones, incident reports, and survival guide pages out of order. Anyway, I definitely enjoy the April Kelleher character, and I think playing with her as an AI companion would be very fun!

u/mjconns · 1 pointr/thedivision

Fresh air:

It's not like any RPG I've ever played. Its setting is unlike any game I've ever played. There's story/PVE elements AND a unique PVE/PVP zone. It's a unique take on a genre that usually follows set themes. Plus, it has other aspects that are VERY realistic and immerse you into the world; the weather, time of day changes, NPC interactions, etc. It's all just really cool. I've seen bits of it in other games, just not all these different elements in one game. It's cool, I don't feel like I've played a game similar to the Division, so it's a fresh video gaming experience.

Tom Clancy in title:

Like all of the video games with his name in the title, they're losely based on story elements from his books. There's a lot of creative license in all of the video games, but a Tom Clancy book was the source of inspiration for themes/content.

Tomy Clancy provides ideas on story lines, not game mechanics. RPGs are not for everyone. If you don't like them, no biggie. Go check out Rainbow Six: Siege (if you like PVP). It's very realistic.

u/dizturbd · 2 pointsr/thedivision

Yeah, I played the closed alpha, the closed beta, and the open beta. Each time the game got better and grew on me a little more as I noticed subtle UI and gameplay changes. This is not your typical Ubisoft title.

The Division will not fail to deliver like Watchdogs and The Crew. Everything was extremely stable during all 3 tests and the game chat is unbelievable.

I couldn't imagine playing this game without the extremely compelling companion book, though.

u/greyjedi92 · 1 pointr/thedivision

It certainly is. It can be extremely frustrating at times, but over all it is fun in my opinion and if you aren't aiming to complete anything it can be a great stress reliever too.

The other day Amazon had it for $9.99 USD, but right now (11.26.16 at 1:47pm EST) it is more but still on sale (at least half off). Here is the link:

u/jamesmtn · 1 pointr/thedivision

I'm on Xbox, but I recently got these to use as an external drive:



With all the fast-travelling I do in the game, it's insane how much time I am saving now. After logging into the game (which is also much faster), loading anything rarely takes longer than a few seconds. It was definitely worth the $40.


Having a smaller external SSD works fine for me since I can easily just move games I'm actively playing onto the SSD and then back onto the internal drive when needed. I only have 3-4 games with annoying load times anyway and they all fit on the SSD currently.

u/scriminal · 1 pointr/thedivision

Just get some of those little velcro ties and start grouping the cables together and bundling them up. Rinse and repeat until it looks nice :) Like this, heck they're even Division Orange :)

u/Jokerboy649 · 2 pointsr/thedivision

THIS. I did the same and wish I did it sooner. Such a huge difference in evertyhing top to bottom. So worth the upgrade. This is the one I got and was recommended by almost everyone.

u/grummzing · 1 pointr/thedivision

I really suggest checking out the Book too.

I've only read around 30 pages or so thus far, but it is one of the most interesting books I've ever bought. It's a "New York Collapse Survival Guide" that belongs to a woman who uses it as a journal/diary as well. Her name is April Kelleher, and I've actually found her in a few Echos in the game.

The book itself has tons of hidden messages/puzzles pertaining to the game in it (I personally haven't solved any of them). It also has other small things in it from NY, like a Metro Pass, a "Missing Person" sign, and tons of other little items/notes stuffed all in it. For $15 it is hands down a great purchase.

u/THERON_MINOTIS · 2 pointsr/thedivision

There is actually a way to play every PS4 game with a keyboard and mouse. You need the Xim 4 adapter that works with PlayStation 4. Connect a keyboard and mouse to it and the adapter will translate your keyboard and mouse inputs into DualShock 4 button presses, sending them to your PS4. The adapter will thus let you play PS4 games like you’d play a PC game, keyboard and mouse. The adapter basically works through tricking the PS4 into thinking you’re using a DualShock 4 controller.

this is the adapter

u/stealthflight23 · 3 pointsr/thedivision

There is a mini art book that came with a special bundle edition and they have a journal , survivalist book out on Amazon that got great reviews.
Tom Clancy The Division New York Collapse

Agreed that the graphics are top notch and there should have been a bigger collectible book

UPDATE: found this

u/druucifer · 1 pointr/thedivision

This is what I use. you can probably get away with the smaller, 250 GB drive if you wanted to save a little more. I would only keep the games you actively play stored on it and everything else on an external HDD. I had a bunch of games on the SSD for a while and started noticing more crashes so I transferred every off except the division and destiny and haven't had any issues since. I think it can get a little overheated if there is too much stuff stored on it which causes the crashes.

u/obababoy · 1 pointr/thedivision

/sigh need to cancel and preorder again.

Amazon: Thank you
Thank you for being on hold Chris
I've checked and see that Beta Code is available for PS4 Version full link)
and I see that you've ordered for " Tom Clancy's The Division - Standard Edition [Online Game Code]
Me: In the link you sent if you switch to PC it shows up.
Me: It doesn't matter which version though...
Amazon: That's correct you'll receive the Beta code for the Physical DVD version
But I'm sorry that Beta code is not available for the PC download which you've ordered
Me: Ok

u/Samikaze707 · 3 pointsr/thedivision

I bought this $35 slingbag on a whim and it's lasted me 2+ years.

I've taken it hiking in Yosemite, Tahoe, the Sierras, and locally across the SF Bay Area,It has yet to show any signs of abuse.


Also, anecdotal, but just want to counter other opinions here. I've seen and used 5.11 gear in the field as well. I do not recommend it. Very overpriced and lacking in durability. At least they were when I was still in 4 years ago.
They may have changed now but I've seen holsters fall of rigs and molle straps rip far more often from them than other models.
Their pants were always great, if still overpriced.

u/Ozone06 · 1 pointr/thedivision

There's a book incorporated into the game.
New York Colapse

It's two books in one. An urban survival guide that's decent. Then there's another story 'hand written' into the margins etc. You find echos of the person in the game and you can read about her perspective in the book. I'm reading it now and it's quite good!

Its surreal having a book on your desk and when you're running around in the world you find the same one in an apartment that you're rummaging through.

u/Ramsickle · 2 pointsr/thedivision

$30 on Amazon as well, I'm Canadian. Chapters is our large Brick and Mortar store like Barnes and Noble is for the US.

u/Harry101UK · 1 pointr/thedivision

It depends on the headphones, but an amplifier or DAC can make a huge difference. Some headphones (usually the higher-end ones) can't output their full dynamic range or clarity without an amplifier. My Sennheiser HD 650's sounded really flat and dull before I plugged them into a DAC.

u/Robjr42o · 2 pointsr/thedivision

You can buy the XiM 4 for Xbox One & PS4 for $174 or so that you plug your ps4, controller, mouse, and keyboard into. Ps4 supplies the power, controller (fully charged) gives the button mappings, and it maps all of that to Kb/M very accurately.. like you just plugged in that stuff w/o an adapter. If you need to edit stuff like rebinding/sensitivity, just download their app to your smartphone & connect via bluetooth.

Edit: link & price


u/QuadrupleMint · 1 pointr/thedivision

Neat. I didn't notice the book sitting there.

It is kinda cool if you're into extra lore. It is a fictional survival guide with notes/memos by a lady going through the virus outbreak that you see in the game. You'll find her all over the place in ECHOs. One of them showed the book open to page 35, and if you check page 35 her notes are basically the text of the audio there.

u/docfirestein · 3 pointsr/thedivision

you don't have to get a smart watch. a black & orange Casio G-Shock is cheaper, and it looks almost exactly like a Division agent's phone. in a few years when you're a civilian and trading your gun for a can of soda, at least your watch will retain some value.

u/Blankman6 · 8 pointsr/thedivision

It is not based on any established Tom Clancy novel or storyline. The Division is an original IP. However, there will be a fictionalized companion book that will coincide with the release of the game:

u/shinynugget · 1 pointr/thedivision

Here is another watch I thought was a reasonable facsimile of the agent's watch. I saw it at a jewelry store yesterday and liked the look. It's about $40 cheaper on Amazon, of course.

u/BLToaster · 2 pointsr/thedivision

My roommate did it last night! It takes 2 seconds, just have to make sure you pre-order the PC version and not PC Download from amazon.

You get the purchase confirmation email that comes with every amazon purchase and then shortly after (took 1 minute for mine and his) you will get another email with your promotional code that you redeem with Ubisoft to register for the beta.

u/combatwars · 2 pointsr/thedivision

Welcome to the PC platform.

There are no Steam keys for The Division. It's a Ubisoft title and as such, all keys you find online will be for the Uplay platform unless bought directly from Steam.

If you're fine with a Uplay key, there has been many sales on sites like Amazon for about $25(not currently active). If you're looking specifically for a Steam sale, the lowest it has gone is about $45.

You can use ITAD to search for deals if there any. According to this site, the cheapest price for a digital key currently is from for about $39. Amazon has a physical copy for $33.

u/Chronotide99 · 1 pointr/thedivision

This one?

I'll look into it, thanks.

edit : oh it was a guide.

u/stevenchutter · 1 pointr/thedivision
I use a Scuf controller, and remapped the grenades and medpack to the the back buttons. I know Scufs are expensive(I had 💰💰 to burn) but I seen this a few days ago. Granted this is if your on PS4.

u/Roelosaurus · 2 pointsr/thedivision

Well, appart from Uplay, Steam and Amazon (who all have it for $60),
there are some (murkier) options you have here:

u/kwitcherbichen · 8 pointsr/thedivision

I have it. It's a unique book companion to the game and rather clever how it operates on multiple levels. First, there is a realistic muddle of survival advice by an unknown but authoritative author. Overlaid on this are several weeks of personal notes scrawled in the margins by the character April Kelleher whose echos and survival pages are found in the game. It fleshes out the subplots involving this character who you haven't met in game. Physical artifacts and clues are provided by this character. Finally there are messages which relate back to the game from the book's fictional author hidden in the text which you can find. April finds or starts you off on some of these and her notes shift from shock to staying alive to scouring the book and the in-game city for the author.

u/Joker328 · 1 pointr/thedivision

If you really want to be paranoid about a pandemic, you should read the tie-in book for the game. It's really well done and it really drives home how quickly everything would fall apart in the kind of scenario depicted in The Division. Plus it weaves in some back story and mystery around the events leading up to game.

u/abovemars · 1 pointr/thedivision

Amazon is offering a 20% discount off Prime eligible/preorders, so it brings the standard version down to $48.

u/toekneeg · 1 pointr/thedivision

Amazon has digital download keys.

Also, you can buy it on the console within the store, or from the store on the Xbox Website

u/drmctoddenstein · 5 pointsr/thedivision

Do yourself a favor if you're a lore nerd

It's the survival guide that April Kelleher was writing in and is the same thing that is on the cover of the survival guide pages in the medical wing.

u/BomberWRX · 2 pointsr/thedivision

It's a survival guide with the events that happened told by April Kelleher. In your Field Data in the game you'll see the category Survival Guide which are actual pages from the book. Also she has her own category under ECHOs.

u/CSwain91 · 2 pointsr/thedivision

The Newspaper!

It was both a promotional point, and a part of their "New York Collapse" meta-gaming.

u/hallgrimg · 4 pointsr/thedivision

There already is a book based in The Division universe that's part diary and part survival guide. You can see pages from it in-game, in the April Kelleher intel.
There's also an art-book, though that one "focuses on the art and making of the game, and includes over 300 images, sketches, and concept art, and in-depth commentary throughout from the artists and creators."

u/Starfire013 · 2 pointsr/thedivision

It's actually cheaper on Amazon ($14.97).

u/O__1 · 1 pointr/thedivision

Still considering getting it myself. I have one of these xim 4. I bought it for destiny and absoultly wrecked.

New York Collapse book has some good answers to this. It really deepens The Division story.

I'm just saying, you should remove it instead of risking someone's job. Are you required to remove it? No. However, GameStop fires people for selling games before street date. It's not unreasonable to think retailers could get into big trouble for selling something before said street date. If you care at all about an employee's job and the potential the retailer could get in trouble for this, then you should remove it. Based on your comments though, saying things like it's not your job to look out for this, you probably don't care what happens, so long as you're able to benefit from it (getting something released before official release date). Other people getting it 'everywhere' before release date doesn't make it any less wrong. If you call other B&N stores, they'll tell you that it can't be sold until the 8th. It's not being sold "everywhere" prior to official release date.

Retailers can get in trouble for selling things before release. Why have a release date if you can just sell it whenever you want?

This book is not released yet, the street date is officially March 8th. Source:

Tom Clancy's The Division: New York Collapse: A Survival Guide to Urban Disaster

u/VVulfpack · 2 pointsr/thedivision

I don't think you're joking, so you probably don't know about the companion book:

It follows the story of April Kelleher and her experiences during the first few weeks of the outbreak of "The Dollar Bug" as she calls it.

Frustratingly, she says if you find the book, she'll be outside the Niagra bar at the Joe Strummer mural every day at noon. But ... the place where that mural really exists in NYC is about 2-3 blocks south of the playable map. FFS :D Anyway, in game, the last we know for sure of her plans is she was heading into the DZ after her discussion with Aaron Keener.
