A loosely organized gang of opportunistic raiders that prey on struggling civilian encampments through violence and intimidation. These hedonistic scavengers take everything they can steal and destroy everything else to deprive their enemies of valuable resources. The Hyenas are led by a council of the strongest pack leaders.

The Hyenas are a major enemy faction in Tom Clancy's The Division 2. While combining the killing instinct, thievery premise, and the firearm combat discipline of the Rioters and the Rikers in Tom Clancy's The Division, these roaming scavengers are thieves and murderers, who prey on the weak and incautious for resources and kill for kicks, as well as destroying everything they can't salvage to hobble their enemies.


The Hyenas show a lack of free world discipline, roaming around in groups and charging around in a fight rather than holding their ground. They show a lack of tactics at times, being only concerned about destroying their opponents.

After The Division brought most Council members to justice, including the ones in the District Union Arena, the Hyenas become disorganized.

However, two council members remain active and at large: Mayhem and Zodiac.

Background

The Hyenas are a loosely organized gang of hedonistic scavengers who rely on violence and intimidation to prey on struggling civilian encampments. These opportunistic raiders have no greater agenda other than to exploit weakness and vulnerability of those who were torn by the outbreak of the Green Poison, and thrive by capitalizing on the misfortune of citizens that were affected by the outbreak.

As civilized society collapsed in the greater metropolitan area of Washington, D.C., citizens who gravitated to acts of depredation - stealing, plundering, raiding, pillaging, ambushing, double-dealing, etc. - to survive began to band together into clans to further gain supplies for their plundering. Some named themselves and claimed turf, similar to how youth gangs operate. But most were amorphous groupings whose membership and leadership shifted from day to day.

As the brutal, anarchic winter turned into spring, six larger clans rose to prominence in the shattered streets north of Constitution Avenue. For weeks, their vicious turf battles destabilized entire neighborhoods and terrorized the surviving citizenry. But in February, these six clans called an interpack truce that led to the creation of a so-called "freedom council" with each clan represented (many lesser clans exist but are not represented). This council has declared a series of purposes that they've termed "freedoms":

  • The freedom to conduct "business" (plunder) within the clan's sphere of influence without interference or consequence from other clans.
  • The freedom to accumulate resources of value/wealth for the clan's own consumption as well as for bartering opportunities with other clans.
  • The freedom to prevent enemies (i.e., any organization not designated a party to the council agreement) from acquiring control of any turf within the northern district.

The council also made one final declaration. The leaders created an umbrella designation for all six clans, calling themselves the Hyenas and officially making them unified into one technical clan.

Despite a lack of centralized organization, the Hyenas are shrewd and well-inured to the use of violence. They care nothing for civilians other than as possible resources of survival goods, sometimes even terrorizing, killing, and hunting merely for sport or their amusement. They are callous opportunists, not only preying on a disrupted city but also actively resisting and undermining stabilization efforts by local and federal authorities in order to keep themselves in control of the settlements without any federal government interference.


Leadership

The Hyenas leadership and government structure is a combination of a federation and an autocracy. As a federation, the Hyenas are led by a Council of Hyena clans. Each clan is self-governing and relatively independent of one another but are all unified as one. As an autocracy, each clan is led by a single leader who has absolute authority over his/her own clan and represents them within the council, acting as the speaker that voices the choices of his/her clan represented in the Council.

Originally the Hyenas were divided and often fought each other for control of turf to spread each clan's influence until a clan leader named Coyote proposed to other clan leaders to unify together. She argued that they all faced a common foe, the True Sons, and that they need to band together if they were going to survive. After much debate, the other clan leaders agreed with Coyote and thus the Hyena Council was formed.


Intelligence Brief

Much like their animal counterparts, the Hyenas are generally opportunistic raiders and scavengers who prey on the weak but can also stand their ground against more powerful foes. The Hyenas appear to consist mostly of late teens and young adults who are either criminals, affiliated with gangs before the outbreak, and normal citizens who wish to simply revel in the anarchy caused by said outbreak. In fact, they've been known to manufacture drugs as drug labs can be seen within Hyena occupied buildings.

Despite this, as a faction, they are relatively organized and intelligent as they are able to re-purpose and use military weapons (miniguns and grenade launchers), creating sniper turrets from SHD devices, and manufacturing creative combat devices such as RC cars rigged with C4 blocks. Also, their council is shown to possess a decent level of government structure. The Hyenas mark their territory with green paint, graffiti, fumes and dead civilians having been used as target practice.

Their general combat skills are typical of a group of criminal gangs, as they show little coordination or discipline, with little regard for what the other combatants are doing. They disregard using cover or aiming with their weapons on a regular basis, and some simply take drugs and charge into battle.

Perhaps as an indicator of their territory, they dislike using assault rifles, snipers, and light machine guns, typically using sub machine guns, pistols, and shotguns. Typically, Shield, Rusher, and Assault archetypes are found closest to enemies, firing away. Medic, Engineer, and Tank archetypes are found behind them, usually setting up their equipment, reviving any dead Hyenas, and laying down suppressive fire for their allies. Controller, Thrower, and Sniper archetypes are found at vantage points in the battlefield, using their gear to support their allies, disorient enemies, and acting as additional ballistic suppression. They typically favor rush tactics, panicking at close range if surprised, and attempt to melee even if the aggressor has a shield, showing a relentless desire to strike down any invaders and enemies.


Relationship with other factions

The Hyenas are at war with the True Sons and have fought to a stalemate against them. In fact, the main reason for various Hyena clans to unify was because of the True Sons, suggesting that prior to the unification each clan was being decimated by their enemy. The clans of Coyote, Saint, Diesel and Dime all possess control points with miniguns, suggesting that their clans were doing the bulk of the fighting against the True Sons.

However, Diesel and his lieutenant, Rebound were in Downtown West, suggesting the Hyenas were trying to expand west, while the Outcasts were distracted by their territory war with the True Sons in West Potomac Park.

They are hostile towards the Outcasts as an ECHO located on H Street NW, near the World’s End control point provides evidence that at least one group of Hyenas and at least one group of Outcasts were fighting over territory while trying to take out a squad of True Sons guarding a building in Downtown West. This suggests that the Hyenas see the Outcasts as a threat to their survival in Western D.C., and are trying to keep them at bay till they can muster the numbers needed to crush their control of West D.C.

Following the death of several Hyena Council members and the invasion of the Black Tusk, the Hyenas are now at war with every faction and are vying for control of positions within Washington, D.C.

As shown by the heroic bounties, Capitol Trash and South Lawn Pack the Hyenas have started trying to organize themselves by fighting Division agents to decide a winner and select a new council member from their ranks. This was not to be as The Division had ranks composed of stronger units.

However, Venus has recruited some of the Hyenas along the Cleaners to create some kind of plan in D.C. However, what this plan is currently unknown.

Months later, a Black Tusk rogue agent named Wraith gathers a large army of Hyenas troops to wreck havoc on D.C., to help Black Tusk with their mission.


Tactics

The Hyenas would try to flank you in order to gain a tactical advantage. Their skills are unorthodox, as they simply disregard cover, shoot without aiming their weapons, or simply take spice and charge towards their foe. Their skills typically involve forcing you out of cover and inflicting status effects - the throwers and controllers try to force you out of cover, the snipers will try to blind you, and the engineers will try and kill you with their sniper turrets. The medics usually revive their fellow Hyenas, but will not hesitate to fight you head-on, even if it's suicide. The assault usually flanks and fires as they go, while attempting to outflank you themselves.

Archetypes

When I first started seeing these assholes show up, I figured it was bad news. I've seen my share of Black Bloc-style folks, and these weren't them. They were well-armed, but disorganized. Figured they'd maybe raided military surplus stores or something.

The Assault unit are deeply indoctrinated by the Hyena's ethos. They are unorganized and inexperienced in combat, relying on intimidation and constant gunfire to make up for their shortcomings. The Assault unit use raiding and looting to instill fear into the citizens of D.C.

Oh, sure. Call it a toy. Deride it for being low-tech. But whatever you do, don't discount it. Someone delivering a block of C4 to your cover position will wreck your day, no matter how bad-ass you're feeling.

Controllers have knowledge of mechanics and are considered the "intellectuals" of the Hyenas. They operate remote-controlled cars rigged with explosives and treat the battlefield like a playground. Their lack of danger perception is both their strength and weakness.

Turned a corner to find two of these guys with their turrets set up and thought to myself, "Nope nope nope." Ended up rolling out three EMPs and sprinting up on them with a shotty. I do not feel charitable when it comes to the idea of getting killed by a machine.

Engineers use sniper turrets and suppression tactics to subdue their enemies. Without their turrets, they have little combat value; therefore, they will do everything in their power to keep their weapons operational, even if it means exposing themselves to enemy fire.

I mean, not exactly a medic in the strictest sense of the word. They aren't fooling anyone about healing them. Take a syringe filled with adrenaline and shove it in someone who's almost dead. Stand back and watch what happens.

Medics are adept at administering injections quickly and under duress. Many of them are believed to be comprised of addicts and former drug dealers. Medics are heavily involved in spice production and often volunteer themselves as test subjects in order to evaluate new strains.

Of all the annoying sons of bitches I've come across, these have to be the worst. Had a merry time with one of these jerks just outside a Doko, and I can't say I loved it. Just kept circling each other for ages looking for an opening. Of course I could have just dropped a present through their mail slot, but I must have been off my game that day.

The laser dazzlers they use are serious business. This is the kind of thing that can cause extreme retinal damage, and that you see on the news from time to time when someone decides it's hilarious to point them at landing jets. Bunch of idiots.

I was out near the eastern dark zone a month or so ago, and got pinned in an alley with one of these guys. Bad news. Couldn't whittle down his armor, so I ended up clipping his ammo belt and jetting past him. No shame in running.
