Looks like Ubisoft is looking into ways to punish those gamers that exploited a glitch found in one of "The Division's" toughest boss battles.

According to an Ubisoft community manager, the team behind "The Division" is looking into ways to punish those users who took advantage of an exploit found in the Falcon Lost Incursion. The exploit apparently allowed players to bypass a significant amount of content in order to easily obtain the rewards, reports Gamerant.

Ubisoft mentions that partaking in the exploit violates the code of conduct and that the company is "looking into what can be done in terms of punishment for those who have exploited," reports Destructoid.

While they are looking into a punishment it doesn't actually mean the gaming company will proceed with the action. If it does, players can probably expect just a slap on the wrist. The company recently said that they would start handing out three day bans for PC users, followed by a permanent ban.

So the real question is, should Ubisoft actually punish users for an exploit that is no longer active? With the hotfix eradicating the exploit, the answe should be an obvious no. Allowing players to continue on, with exploiters retaining the gear they took from the Incursion, would perhaps sit best with the communities support. Alternatively, if Ubisoft is set on making a point and bringing on a punishment. The company could just erase all Incursion loot from the past week, though that might cause an even larger uprising with the community. And of course Ubisoft could always ban the exploiters as well.

Not everyone agrees with a punishment. "The Division" community on Reddit has responded to the issue in a frustrating manner. Since Falcon Lost went live, the games servers have been experiencing abnormal amounts of lag and have been described as buggy. Many users feel it is only right to utilize the exploit until the lag and bugs are fixed.

"The Division" is currently available on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The game’s most recent content drop, which included the Falcon Lost Incursion, went live earlier this week.
