They're called Marksman rifles. They had an armory listed on the Division website and there are only a few gun types. Auto rifle, LMG, SMG, Shotgun, Marksman, Pistol.

the Barrett M95 is in the game, so I am guessing they are keeping the sniper rifles quiet or they just don't know how to balance them, which is a bigger concern

Dark Zone, even with a group of 4, was boring.
You either kill rogue people, YAY fun.
Or you go around killing the same 4 groups of AI.
Now, if AI came randomly out of buildings.
Or if there were environment hazards.

I mean, did the gas station even blow up?
Grenades were fucking stupid.
Could never tell if I still had a nade equiped...or if my gun was back.

The "story" well, I'm not sure what the whole back log was.
All the characters looked the same. I mean, I picked a girl, she had a guys hair cut.
Da fuq.

they locked too much away in the beta in my opinion, the character creation was limited, no crafting so no clue how the hell that works, what you need to do etc.

The point of a beta is to test features and give feedback, all we played was a demo

It's a balancing act though... because if you release too much in a beta, then people already feel like they played a full game.

So................headcount. Who's getting The Division?

I'm still on the fence with this one, and the only thing that is really going to change my mind is how many people I know will be playing it. Destiny has nothing new, Uncharted will be 6 weeks away after TCTD's release, and baseball holds me over for so long.

So the only reason I have been considering this game, is sheer boredom. But I don't want to play this shit alone.

I already put $10 down for the order so I am getting the game.

I'm not keen although the beta was quite fun in parts. Will check reviews and see how popular it is with everyone else. Definitely won't bother to get it on release.

Likewise. But even without the concerns I had after playing the beta, I simply have too many other games to play to warrant getting it right away. Which is a shame. I was hoping to be excited for this release, and it still feels like it has the potential to be an amazing game if Ubi had taken it in a different direction.

There's little in this game that interests me, so it's a nay from me.

Well after some Twitter convincing, HAYTRED seems like he might pick The Division up, so that's 2...
At least all of his SOCOM buddies will be on there to play with us 2 at this point.
