Tom Clancy’s The Division just received an important update, together with a second extension: The Division Survival. Update 1.5 brings pretty much the same content featured on the PTS version, and includes both game changes and fixes.

Some of the most important game changes are: weapon and skill balance changes, Credits and Phoenix Credits reward adjustments, 12 new weapon types, and 4 new high-end named weapons that are waiting for you to test them out.

Important fixes include:

  • the bug where players could become invincible for a few seconds after using the Survivor Link is now gone
  • Ubisoft fixed the bug where players would not be able to shoot for several seconds after having thrown a skill or a grenade
  • the window size now changes when switching the video settings to windowed mode.

Unfortunately, Tom Clancy’s The Division Update 1.5 also brings issues of its own, as many gamers report. In this article, we’re going to list the most common bugs encountered by gamers, so that you know what to expect when you install the update.

Tom Clancy’s The Division Update 1.5 bugs

1. Talents are not activated, although the patch notes confirm this bug has been fixed.

I noticed in the patch notes that this bug was meant to be fixed but my first experience in the game (1.5) landed right on the stat requirement and the talents weren’t activated. I exited the menu then re-entered and attached a different weapon but it didn’t change.

2. The Support Station is not working and can’t heal gamers anymore. For more information, see the video below.

3. Low FPS rate issues

Many gamers who didn’t have any FPS rate issues prior to this update, now complain that their gaming experience is severely limited. It appears that Patch 1.5 messed up Vsync and framerate modes, as players confirm that disabling Vsync or any limitation of FPS fixes the bug.

I do also have problems with fps since 1.5 update. It stays between 10-28 fps. Before update I had 28-55 fps, never less. I reinstalled latest graphics drivers but no change. Gaming experience is pretty bad now. Although it still goes up to like 28 fps it feels like playing always with 10-15. Changing from ultra to low doesnt change anything. Fps is nailed between 10-28.

4. Xbox One controller stopped working

Many gamers can no longer use their Xbox One controller to play Tom Clancy’s The Division, and are forced to rely on the good old mouse and keyboard combo. Some managed to fix this bug by double pressing ALT+ TAB, but this solution doesn’t work for all users.

Hi. not sure if anyone can help but since the 1.5 update I can no longer use my xbox one controller. I can only use the mouse and keyboard. Everything was fine until the update. Tried other games and alls ok using controller.

5. Toughness drops

Toughness issues are a major problem for The Division players, and it appears that Update 1.5  is causing their toughness level to significantly drop. This is not an isolated bug, as many gamers have already reported this problem.

Logged in with 1.5 update and my toughness dropped from playing yesterday. I re read the patch notes and don’t see anything that would have effected this. Checked with a couple friends and they are seeing the same thing. One dropped over 50k in toughness, the other around 30k. Is this a bug happening or did I miss something? We didn’t change any equipment or change anything since logging off last night

6. Delta errors are back

Unfortunately, the annoying Delta errors have reared their ugly head again. The connection Delta errors seem to occur most of the time when users are playing with other players and less often when they are playing solo.

As a result, it appears that there is some kind of error in processing data when a lot of things are happening at the same time on screen. The good news is that Ubisoft has already acknowledged these bugs and its team is working around the clock to find a solution.

Seems every time an update comes out we get the dreaded DELTA errors. Had so many DELTA C-0-1243 errors that my game is now not enjoyable.
We should not have these errors at all if theses we addressed before the updates. If this continues now or in further updates you may lose credibility

These are the most common bugs caused by the new Tom Clancy’s The Division Patch 1.5, and don’t include all the issues reported by gamers on the game’s forum. Indeed, it appears that Ubisoft has a lot of “material” to work on for the upcoming Tom Clancy’s The Division Update 1.6.
