The Division Myths Get Busted in New Video

"Can you create a portable Smart Cover by attaching it to a Ballistic Shield?"


Can you kill an enemy in The Division by bringing them into a contaminated zone? How about killing two enemies with one sniper shot? These are just a few of the myths players have cooked up, and one YouTube channel took it upon itself to bust them.

YouTuber DefendTheHouse posted the "Mythbusters" video today, and answers questions such as "Is it true that enemies will not attack you if you are in an elevator" and "Can you create a portable Smart Cover by attaching it to a Ballistic Shield?" You can watch the video above to find out the answers.

DefendTheHouse is known for its video game Mythbusters series, in which they've delved in to bust the myths of games like Grand Theft Auto V, Fallout 4, and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. They've also done videos on Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 and Halo 5: Guardians.

GameSpot's Scott Butterworth scored The Division an 8 in his review, which said that even though he would get frustrated with things like its semi-indestructible enemies or repetitive leveling structure, the world was too engrossing, the loot was too enticing, and the campaign was too gripping for him to simply walk away.
