Tom Clancy’s The Division: Survival is the second expansion for the game and throws players into hostile environments and brutal weather conditions. Caught in a blizzard, survival becomes your main concern. Ubisoft guarantees this new mode will challenge even the most talented Division agents.

This expansion is not the only element that will challenge your skills or patience for that matter. According to reports, The Division: Survival is affected by various issues that severely limit the gaming experience.

Tom Clancy’s The Division: Survival bugs

Getting into the Survival section takes several minutes

If you’ve been waiting for more than 10 minutes to play The Division: Survival, rest assured you’re not the only one. Actually, for many players, the average Survival queue time is 15 minutes.

I just want to ask if anyone is having issue getting into the Survival section. I’ve got it all unlocked of course but the first time we attempted to get into a session it took 15min. The second time we waited for an hour, but then finally relented[…]

MIKE errors

Gamers also report they get various MIKE errors when finishing Survival, irrespective of the mode they play. Other players confirm this issue was present on the PTS as well and add that every time they try to transition back to the normal game from Survival, the game crashes with a MIKE error. They never get to see their final results, but at least receive their caches. Ubisoft’s forum moderators already passed this issue on to the engineering team.

Mike error always when loding score screen after survial I always get a Mike Error when finishing survival.
No matter if I am in a group or soloing. Somebody else have the same issue?

Survival items disappear from inventory

Gamers also complain of items disappearing from their inventories.

Missing achievements

After trying to score as high as possible, many gamers were surprised to see their achievements missing — all that hard work for nothing. This bug occurs randomly and doesn’t affect particular items.

Tom Clancy Survival crashes

Gamers also report that Survival can sometimes disconnect and they can’t log back in. In other words, they lose their caches as well as the rewards for staying alive.

We had been in the match for close to 45 minutes. We had just entered the DZ and took out a named mob and some elites and were collecting the items and caches that we found when we disconnected. When I tried to log in it asked if I wanted to rejoin my match. I clicked yes and then it said it wasn’t available.. So I am down the 4 or 5 caches that we found plus any rewards for surviving that long…

Playing Tom Clancy’s The Division: Survival can prove to be quite a bumpy ride for some gamers. For the time being, there are no workarounds available for the issues listed above as the DLC was only recently launched.
