I was watching some old Division 1 trailers because I was bored and when I watched the Survival trailer, I had a theory on what the Hunters could be. I'm not sure if this one has been put forward before, but I haven't heard it said by anyone else, so here it is.
Most of the theories on the Hunters were in some relation to them being allied with Keener or the Black Tusk. But what if they're neither? As we've seen in a number of different things, the Division are clearly more capable fighters and have better tech, that most of the time, the only thing that's truly equal to a Division agent is another Division agent.
So here's the theory. What if the Hunters are first or second wave Division agents that were deployed to the Dark Zone, but went insane went they realized no one was giving them backup anymore. Stranded and running low on supplies, they snapped, and tore off their Division watches. They need the watches to access ISAC, which the Hunters don't use as far as we know, but while we've never seen it, I'm sure the watches are removeable and not fused to their skin or something.
Anyways, they took off their watches, and began killing their fellow agents, collecting their watches as a sort of trophy, or maybe, maybe as a sort of twisted way of remembering the life they used to have. What I mean by that is that if we look at the Memento Exotic Backpack in the Division 2, the description says the the following:
I took from those who watched, hunted, and collected, until only their shadows remained. Now my watch has ended, so yours may begin.
I infer from that that this is written by a Hunter, who I'm pretty sure don't speak. Maybe they took a vow of silence as part of shedding their old identity. Obviously 'watch' has a double meaning in this case, referring to the actual watches and watching over Division agents.
We know the Hunters use Division tech, which they probably stole, but as proven by the LMB, rogue agents, Black Tusk and some bosses, you don't need ISAC or even a Division watch to use any Division tech like healing stations, seeker mines, etc. They can clearly be used as easily as any other weapon. That would explain why they use that stuff, which they either stole or kept from their past Division days. Since they don't speak, the masks are probably how they identify each other, since they have unique patterns.
As for how they ended up in DC, I can't say but I have one or two theories. One is that these are Division agents in DC who went insane in pretty much the same way and did the same things as the New York Hunters did, as unlikely as that seems. Second is that these are the same Hunters from New York who followed the Division agents from New York or wherever they were sent from to DC, and laid out elaborate traps they knew only Division agents could complete. Which would explain the puzzles you need to complete to draw them out. They knew only Division agents could figure them out, and when they did, they'd surprise them, kill them, and take their watches.
I'm sure there's some things I'm missing here, but I just thought of this, so I figured I'd put it out. I'm pretty sure the Hunters were put into the Division series as nothing but secret bosses and a cool super tough enemy to fight, without much thought about any lore on who they are or how they came to be. Still, it's fun to theorize nonetheless. Let me know what you think.
Real quick thought, I wanted to get your guys opinion. I just saw one of the clips for that new Tom Clancy game, and I saw a sign for a place called Admiral Burger in the map.
Forgive me if I'm wrong, but I think I saw Admiral Burger signs in the Division games. That combined with the snowy map the clip is set in, does that mean we'll see Division themed maps in the new game? That would be awesome.
I could be completely wrong and am thinking of something else, so let me know what you think.

So you know how you can go rogue by punching the ISAC brick in the Dark zone, yeah how does that work? Like does isac think your hitting another agent or does he get angry and makes you go rogue? Or maybe it’s just gameplay wise I don’t know really.
