There’s a bug in The Division that could make PvP encounters a one-sided blood bath.
As you can see from Extended Celery‘s video, there’s currently a bug that allows you to equip a primary weapon with your ballistic shield.
A post flagging up the issue appeared on reddit earlier today, and the maker of the video has also posted it in the game’s bug forum, like a responsible adult.
Hopefully this will get patched out fairly quickly, but in the meantime, if you see anyone pulling a shield out in the Dark Zone, just run. Run like the clappers.
