In the midst of announcing its stance on cheaters and exploiters, Ubisoft Massive has begun banning cheaters in Tom Clancy’s The Division.

After noting on its official blog that it would be “handing out the biggest wave of suspensions and bans to date over the course of the next few days,” users on Reddit confirmed that ban waves have been handed out to cheating players. These come from official comments made by community manager Hamish Bode on Twitch and an image of the ban email itself is also available.

The new punishments for cheating are quite severe. Cheat once and you’re banned for 14 days. Repeat your error and you’re banned permanently. Massive will also release a list of known exploits for each major patch and any user caught taking advantage of them will face consequences. What about the unknown exploits? We’ll see how that works in the coming days.

And hey, at least the studio managed to fix that odd glitch where you’d die if you stood next to certain ladders for too long. That’s progress. Now if only the damn loot drops and crafting were better.
