These streets must be cleansed. To save our city, we must burn away this disease. Every trace of it. Only through the power of fire can we be free.
- Unknown Cleaner

The Cleaners are former New York City sanitation workers (garbage men, janitors, custodians, etc.) who lost everything during the outbreak. Formed and radicalized by Joe Ferro, they are convinced that the only way to save the city from the virus is to burn everything down, including the people still living in it. They are one of the major enemy factions in Tom Clancy's The Division and a major faction in Tom Clancy's The Division 2.

After the death of Joe Ferro and the loss of more than half of their manpower and their main source of napalm supply and production, the Cleaners were weakened to the point that they are no longer a threat to the JTF.

However, the Cleaners recovered with the help of Vivian Conley, one of Aaron Keener's lieutenants. and are a hostile faction in Tom Clancy's the Division 2. They launched an attack on Coney Island while Black Tusk was distracted by the attack of The Division. They rule over lower Manhattan, along with the Rikers. However, with the death of Vivian Conley, the loss of their HQ, and the loss of their napalm production factory, the Cleaners scattered over lower Manhattan.

Intelligence Brief Edit

A roaming faction, the Cleaners can appear in many districts; all agents should proceed with extra caution, especially in Cleaner-occupied territories. The faction consists of construction and sanitation workers that felt abandoned when the government and JTF pulled out and left them to defend themselves and die. Trapped in the quarantine zones, they decided to take matters into their own misguided hands. Armed with flamethrowers, fire axes, and firebombs, they travel from one area to another hoping to cleanse the city of the virus. They will burn anything they deem to be contaminated. Their terror spreads quickly like the fire they wield. They are brutal and unfeeling and hold the belief that the sick are already dead. A video recovered from the napalm production site or HQ shows footage of a civilian's phone which shows that she is burnt alive by a Cleaner when she was caught at the site. To identify their territories, agents are advised to keep a lookout for yellow-colored garbage trucks.

Eight months after the outbreak, the remaining Cleaners allied themselves with two Rogue Division agents, Vivian Conley and Javier Kajika. Conley helped the Cleaners upgrade their utilities and weapons, they are now deadlier as ever.

As of the moment, Vivian Conley is the leader of the Cleaners. Unbeknownst to them, she also does dealing with fellow Rogue Division Agents, Aaron Keener, James Dragov, and Theo Parnell.

However, with Conley dead, and the Tanker lost, the Cleaners are now in total chaos. Prior to Warlords of New York, Conley gave some of her Cleaners to Henderson as backup for her plans.

Relationship with other factions Edit

Although it is never stated in-game and with little interaction (aside from skirmishes). the Cleaners would have most likely thought of the other warring factions as a detriment to their goal of cleansing the city of the virus as they would only get in the Cleaners way.

In regards to the JTF, they believe the JTF are weak and soft and thus unable to handle the situation. Compared to them the Cleaners believe they are capable of making the hard choices and doing what needs to be done for the greater good. At the end of Dragon's Nest, Roy Benitez admits he understands their intentions and goals but still views their methods as sick and twisted. He is also genuinely impressed and disturbed by their resourcefulness.

Any animosity they have with the other factions would have likely been resolved by the time of Resistance as they joined forces with remnants of the Rioters, Rikers, and Last Man Battalion to combat the JTF and Division agents as well as to hunt down Aaron Keener.

They seem to hold a big grudge towards Black Tusk after being manipulated into believing that Vitaly Tchernenko was the one responsible for creating Green Poison and wanting revenge.

Tactics Edit

When fighting Cleaners, agents should keep a distance from them, as most Cleaners are equipped with flamethrowers and can easily burn and kill with them. Using long-range weapons is recommended. If a member of the Cleaners is shot enough in the gas tank backpack, it will explode and damage them severely, or kill them depending on their level. However, not all Cleaners wear gas tanks such as Mechanics and Shields.

The Sweeper class will usually pin down their targets while another Sweeper rushes up to burn them. The Fumigators, being the Grenadier archetype, will lob incendiary grenades, and at higher levels (31 and 32), gas grenades at enemies in cover and will sometimes assist in pinning down the target. Mechanics will rush to cover when combat starts and will place a crude turret on top of the cover. Once the turret is down, the Mechanic will then engage with his Shotgun. If the Mechanic is killed, and the turret isn't destroyed, the turret will fire at enemies randomly until stopping, which it is then destroyed. Shield wielders will rush the target with a shield and fire ax, and won't stop until they are killed. Incinerators are rare, but they are the toughest enemy that can be encountered in Cleaner areas. They slowly shamble towards their target or will run-up to it if not close enough to attack. The flamethrowers they wield will have a pretty far range and can dish out a lot of damage in a single spew. Controllers used to be encountered only in the Amherst's Apartment and the Napalm Production Site missions, but since the Clear Sky update, they are now a more common sight - particularly in Search and Destroy missions and High-Value Target Ops.

Cleaner Enemy Types Edit

Tom Clancy's The Division Edit

  • Sweeper - Armed with Classic AK-Ms with home-made flamethrowers attached to them
  • Identified by their fuel tanks and full gas mask, which can be shot to deal massive damage to them. If shot in the tank, Sweepers will normally try to take their tank off and flail around before exploding
    • Elite variants have a more powerful and farther flamethrower and will run up to you to try and blow the agent up if their tank is shot at
  • Fumigator - Grenadier enemies who throw incendiary grenades, and are armed with an M9 (regular), or an MP7 SMG (Veteran/Elite). Identified by their white hazmat suits, grey overalls and red grenade bag in their left hip. They have a weak point that is the red satchel on their waist. If shot in the satchel enough, they will explode and set everything, including other Cleaners, on fire
  • Elite variants will throw Poison Gas grenades; these grenades have a shorter fuse than the standard Incendiary grenades
  • Challenging Difficulty/HVT variants wear yellow/green/orange hazmat suits.
  • Shield - Melee enemies armed with a bullet-resistant shield and a fire ax that can be identified by their green hooded jacket, gas mask, and fire ax. They have 2/3rds the amount of health and (if Veteran/Elite rank) armor compared to regular Cleaners. Note their shield can break after being shot many times.
    • Elite variants run faster and attack between shorter intervals compared to their Veteran/Normal counterparts.
  • Collector - Dressed similar to Shields (work overalls, gas mask, high-vis vest, and hooded jumper), but are armed with AK-47s. So far, seen only in Dragon's Nest. While similar in appearance to Shields, their jacket is actually a more yellow-ish shade of green, as opposed to the Shield’s flat green jacket.
  • Controllers (Sniper) - Enemies armed with Classic M1A (Regular) or SOCOM M1A (Veteran/Elite) sniper rifles and M9 pistols for close-range. Identified by their blue boiler suits and radio backpacks, similar in appearance to a Cleaner Mechanic. They have 2/3rds the amount of health and (if Veteran/Elite rank) armor compared to regular Cleaners
    • Originally called Controllers in the first game due to their backgrounds as the boiler room and HVAC system controllers. They are not be confused with the Controller class in Tom Clancy's The Division 2.

  • Mechanic - Enemies who can deploy and repair Turrets. They are also armed with M870 Express Shotguns and PF45 pistols and can be recognized by their baseball caps, radio headsets, and shotguns
    • On Challenge difficulties and the Incursion Dragon's Nest, they control modified Remote Controlled cars carrying a mix of explosives, Napalm B and tear gas which is rigged to explode in close proximity of its target
    • Elite named variants will be armed with Military M870s.
  • Incinerator - Large, heavily armored boss enemies armed with flamethrowers and molotov cocktail grenades, they have 3 times the amount of health and armor as regular Cleaners of the same rank.
  • They wear three fuel canisters on their back that can be shot and detonated, which deals a good amount of damage to them and other enemies near them. Another variant acts like a Rikers Guard armed with an M249 Para appears in challenging difficulty in Hudson Refugee Camp or in the incursion, Dragon's Nest.
  • They also have a weak point, the red ammo box on their backpacks which fires everywhere damaging NPCs or Players while they are distracted.
  • Fire Truck (boss only) - Armed with flamethrowers and incendiary missiles seen in Dragon's Nest

Archetypes Edit

"These sons of bitches just won't quit. We took out Ferro, and they kept going. Like a dog with a motherfucking bone."
- Paul Rhodes

The Cleaner Assault units are composed of former construction workers and new Cleaner recruits, dedicated to their mission of burning out the virus. They will not hesitate to burn anyone or anything that gets in their way. They are zealous, brutal, and won't give up for anyone.

  • Armed with Classic AK-Ms with home-made flamethrowers attached to them.
  • The Assaults wear a black protective vest over their construction vest and have torn their sleeves off their hazmat suits.
  • Their weak point is the fuel tank on their back, they will panic if it is shot and will explode shortly after it was breached.
  • Named variants have a more powerful and farther flamethrower and will run up to you to try and blow the agent up if their tank is shot at.
  • If their fuel tank is shot, it disables their ability to use their flamethrower.
  • Elites usually survive the explosion but are hobbled.
  • They act the same as in Tom Clancy's The Division but have different voice lines.
  • Bounty Cleaner Assaults are armed with concussion grenades.

"These sons of bitches just won't quit. We took out Ferro, and they kept going. Like a dog with a motherfucking bone."
- Paul Rhodes

The Cleaner throwers are the Cleaner anti-personnel units, who are skilled in the use of their vapor grenades as anti-personnel weapons, supporting their allies on the battlefield by flushing enemies out of cover. They are erratic, and extremely dangerous if unnoticed. However, the tables can be turned on them by shooting their grenade satchel.

  • Armed with a Military M9 pistol (regular) or an MP7 (Veteran/Elite) and vapor grenades.
  • They throw grenades from cover and then shoot the gas that emerges.
  • Their weak point is their firestarter grenade satchel, on the back of their waist.
  • Shooting it will set them and everything around them on fire.
  • Elite variants will have a grenade launcher that that fires napalm projectiles similar to the engineer's turret.
  • Bounty Cleaner Throwers can place down an ammo box containing shock rounds and can use automated bomber drones containing vapor bombs.

"Imagine, if you will, someone willing to take a plexiglass shield and an ax... and charge into battle against people with guns. Then imagine you found a lot of idiots like this. That's the nightmare fuel you need to think about with the Cleaners."
- Paul Rhodes

The Rushers are delusional and unyielding Cleaners relying on their ferocity, shields, and axes to scare their enemies into submission. They are more inclined to run down civilians than fighting actual enemies, but Agents are still encouraged to make these Cleaners priority targets due to their close-range fighting style.

  • Melee units armed with Fire Axes and stolen police riot shields.

they don't stop until they have killed their target or are dead themselves.

  • The Shields can be identified by their black protective vest over their plaid shirt, sleeveless hazmat suits, and a waist-mounted backpack similar to Hyena Controllers.
  • Their shield can take about a magazine of Assault rifle ammo before coming useless.

"Inventive bastards, I'll give them that. Pin down targets with sniper fire, and blow 'em up if they hide behind cover."
- Paul Rhodes

Snipers are cunning and calculating Cleaners who are selected for their accuracy, skill with weapons, and knowledge of local terrain. They are typically the scouts of the Cleaner forces and a serious threat. All agents are encouraged to make these Cleaners priority targets due to their diverse armament and skill at both long-range and short-range.

  • Long-range units armed with Classic M44 Carbines (regular) or a Surplus SVD (Veteran/Elite) at long range.
  • They also have a Double Barrel Sawed Off (Regular), or a Double Barrel Shotgun (Veteran/Elite) at close range.
  • They will also deploy an incendiary RC car at long range to knock their target out of cover.
  • Shooting the RC car on their back will prevent them from deploying it.
  • Bounty Snipers are equipped with Concussion Grenades, Incendiary Grenades, and a Laser Dazzler.

"Evil geniuses. These bastards are using off-the-shelf leftovers to set these things up. Probably Parnell's brain-child."
- Paul Rhodes

The Cleaner Controllers are the technology experts of the Cleaners and support their allies on the battlefield with bomber drones. They are armed with bomber drones and submachine guns. As such they are extremely dangerous, and all agents are advised to watch for these Cleaners.

  • Technical units armed with drones. The drone can drop vapor bombs over the target, and inflict the burning effect.
  • They also have a weak point on their left thigh, where their cluster bombs are stored.
  • Shooting the drone on their back will prevent them from deploying it.
  • Damaging the drone severely will cause it to drop its load, severely damaging and setting fire to anyone caught in the blast.
  • They are also armed with an M1928 SMG (regular) or a Tommy Gun (Veteran/Elite) as a backup weapon at close range.

"I'm not going to lie to you. These guys are nasty. Their turrets are nasty. And shit, they probably smell nasty too."
- Paul Rhodes

Engineers are units with a rudimentary understanding of mechanics. They work to support their allies on the battlefield with their napalm artillery turrets. they have little combat value otherwise, so they will do everything in their power to make sure their turrets remain operational.

  • Technical units armed with an incendiary artillery turret and Enhanced PP-19 SMG.
  • Their turrets inflict the burning and ensnared effect if their target is hit, in which time the operator will then shoot at the ensnared target.
  • However, the projectiles are slow and have a distinctive firing sound, offering a chance to evade.
  • Only appears as Veteran or Elite Enemies.

"These fuckers have been a thorn in our side since the beginning of this mess. They used to lead teams through the sewers, flushing and burning out vermin as they went. Now, they've turned on people."
- Paul Rhodes

Cleaner Tanks are brutal, unfeeling Cleaners tasked with burning out stubborn infections or removing inhibitors to the Cleaners' plans. All Agents are advised to keep a lookout for these Cleaners as they are heavily armed and armored. Heavy Weaponry is advised for use against these Cleaners.

  • Heavily armored units armed with flamethrowers and Molotov cocktails.
  • They act like any tank, walking around while firing their weapons.
  • Shooting the long tank on their back will temporarily cripple them and make them vulnerable to headshots.
  • Shooting their gas tank on the left leg will disable their flamethrower.
  • Shooting the bag on their right leg will disable their Molotov grenades.
  • They will switch to a fire ax and act like an Outcast Tank.
  • Bounty Tanks are armed with DC-62 grenades and do not have a fuel tank weak point.

TriviaEdit

For those who want to get a close look at a Sweeper, Fumigator, or Shield, play the Mission Napalm Production Site. When exiting the elevator to the hazmat area before the player(s) encounter Joe Ferro, there will be a Sweeper and a Fumigator (a shield may spawn on harder difficulties) on the other side of a glass window directly to the left of the elevator. They will react to the player(s) in a sequenced animation, then runoff. Plotwise, this is the Cleaners discovering the Agent coming to kill Ferro, then running off to warn others (others being the first group of Cleaners that run downstairs on the left and right sides of the final room).

  • Despite being dedicated to burning out the virus, Cleaners are rarely seen anywhere near Contaminated areas outside of the Dark Zone.
  • Sometimes, when a civilian goes near a group of Cleaners, said a group of Cleaners will threaten them, if the civilian doesn't leave the area, the Cleaners will open fire and kill them.
  • Although the Cleaners' leadership and source of napalm have been eliminated, the leftover Cleaners seemingly have an infinite supply of it [napalm], although it's most likely for gameplay purposes.
    • A phone call collectible between two cleaners intending to produce napalm found mentions styrofoam as an ingredient, probably alluding that the napalm the cleaners are using is nothing more than a styrofoam/gasoline mixture, a low-grade easy-to-obtain variant.
    • A Scribble on a wall in the napalm production site which may possibly be by a cleaner, instructs how to make napalm by mixing equal parts gasoline and frozen orange juice concentrate, which is a reference to the popular book Fight Club.
  • If the player purchases the Cleaner Faction bundle from the Premium Vendor, they will get the Shield outfit.
  • In the North American version factions trailer lines used for the cleaners is:
    • "These streets must be sanitized. To save our city, we must burn away this disease. Every trace of it. No matter the cost."
  • For the European version of the faction trailer the line used is: "These streets must be cleansed. To save our city, we must burn away this disease. Every trace of it. Only through the power of fire can we be free"
  • In Tom Clancy's Division 2, ECHO revealed that not all cleaners were from a sanitize company, some were from EMT, in charge of Emergency Medical Treatment.
