A private military company originally dispatched to Manhattan to protect certain corporate assets. The LMB were abandoned by their clients once the quarantine hit. Under the leadership of Lt. Col. Charles Bliss, they have placed huge chunks of Manhattan under their version of martial law.

The Last Man Battalion (known as LMB) is a private military company founded and led by Charles Bliss, a highly decorated former officer in the United States Army's Special Forces. Comprised almost entirely of former commandos from the Army's elite 75th Ranger Regiment and the CIA's much feared Special Operations Group, the LMB employs some of the most highly trained and lethal mercenary soldiers in the world. They are one of the major enemy factions in Tom Clancy's The Division.

Just before the Green Poison outbreak, the company was deployed in classified black sites across Western Asia and North Africa, as well as numerous other sensitive locations. But after the bioweapon attack, several panicked Wall Street financial firms immediately hired the LMB to protect their servers and high-value physical assets stored onsite in their Lower Manhattan vaults. Worn and battle-weary, the rank and file soldiers found themselves recalled from hazardous overseas duty only to be diverted into the viral maelstrom of the deadliest urban catastrophe in modern history.

As panic in the Financial District spiraled further out of control, Bliss began to clash with local authorities. He considered them pathetically weak and indecisive, hamstrung by ludicrous restrictions that had no place in an actual war zone. When the quarantine was established and the JTF pulled back to their main base in Midtown, the LMB found itself cut off and abandoned.

Several days of savage street fighting convinced Bliss that the only course of action left was to retake New York City himself, and establish a new martial order via brute force. After a fierce disagreement with an imperious JTF liaison, Bliss not only disobeyed the official's direct orders but executed the man.

Compared to other factions in the Manhattan quarantine zones, the LMB employed far more combat specialists with top-grade military gear and weapons, and their defensive positions were more heavily fortified. Convinced that not just the city but the entire nation would collapse in the atavistic wake of the pandemic, Bliss was determined that his LMB would survive the smallpox, seize full control of New York, and then use their newly created city-state as a base to usher in a new world order - one where only those with strength of will and character survive.

A Rogue Alliance

A momentous meeting between Lt. Colonel Bliss and the rogue Division operative Aaron Keener led to a provisionary alliance between the Last Man Battalion and dissident members of the Division's first wave into New York. The agreement was based on the idea that current political systems would be incapable of maintaining stable societies in a harsh postpandemic world. Keener shared Bliss's vision of a grim Darwinian future.

Afterward, several of Keener's crew actually became LMB captains. Working together, they orchestrated the rocket attack that killed the northeast section Division commander, Louis Chang. The Division soon came to consider the Last Man Battalion to be the most formidable hostile force operating in New York. Bliss also hammered out cooperative agreements with other factions, including the Cleaners and Rikers.

The Battalion Collapses

Despite these ominous developments, The Division managed to shatter the mercenary company thanks to the efforts of its crack corps of second-wave agents. These cohorts proved to be highly resourceful, displaying remarkable adaptability to hostile, deteriorating urban environments. Setting new standards for Division field operations, their successes confirmed the efficacy of Division training and, in fact, of the entire concept of "stay-behind" operations.

After losing Charles Bliss and most of his commanding officers, the mercenary company collapsed. Any surviving LMB soldiers scattered and no longer posed a major threat. By the time the JTF began moving onto the West Side Piers, the LMB remnants had managed to broker peace between other factions. According to one audio log recovered by Division agents, the factions found common ground on a shared experience-shameless, contemptible betrayals by former Agent Keener.

Yet they gained surprising allies outside of New York during the Warlords of New York campaign when recruited by the Black Tusk. The LMB is no longer an active faction after the events of Tom Clancy's The Division, with the remnants of the unit being assimilated into the Black Tusks.


Intelligence Brief

Worn and battle-weary, the LMB were none too pleased being recalled from overseas and diverted to Manhattan. With their requests for transfer gone unheeded and extraction, not an option, this PMC has become trapped far from home in the worst area of the epidemic. Tired of indecisive local authorities, their commander, Charles Bliss, took matters into his own hands, disobeying direct orders and executing a JTF official—effectively turning his entire company and himself into mutineers.

Convinced not just the city, but the nation, will collapse under the hopeless burden of the virus, the LMB has no allegiance to anyone but themselves. They will use any and all means necessary to make sure they make it through the storm and to usher in a new world order where only the strong will survive.

Events of Tom Clancy's The Division

In the initial weeks of the outbreak, the LMB and JTF had an uneasy cooperation due to differing methods in handling the crisis. Several phone recordings from JTF and National Guard personals show they are against LMB's totalitarian authority and execution of civilians. Following the JTF's deteriorating control of the city Colonel Bliss decided to take matters into his own hands.

The near-collapse of the JTF left the LMB as the most powerful faction in New York and they maintained an iron fist on their territories, with potential plans to begin expanding and eventually securing control of all of New York City.

However, the activation of Second Wave Division agents proved to be devastating to the LMB in the coming weeks. The agents began coordinating and rallying the scattered JTF forces and began to retake the city faction by faction. Eventually, after eliminating the vast majority of other factions and their leaders, the JTF and Division finally felt ready to begin assaulting LMB territories. Despite this setback, however, the LMB were still combat effective and had Rogue Division agents within their ranks.

Eventually, the repeated attacks took its toll on LMB forces, as by the time JTF forces had stormed their U.N. HQ, effective resistance had all but collapsed and any remaining forces were recalled back to desperately try and stem the Division's rapid assault into their HQ. In addition, Aaron Keener and his rogue agents backstabbed the LMB and left them to deal with JTF forces on their own. Blinded by Keener's betrayal, Bliss returned to the U.N. HQ after evacuating in an attempt to hunt him down but was forced to deal with the Second Wave Division agents instead. Eventually, he was shot down, and remaining LMB forces retreated or surrendered to the victorious JTF forces.

Several weeks after Charles Bliss's death, Captain Perez, the highest-ranking LMB officer alive, rallied scattered forces to their underground base in an attempt to wipe out The Division with their remaining APC. JTF forces, having caught wind of the situation, sent men in to try and halt the LMB's attempts but were wiped out just as Division reinforcements arrived. Eventually, after planting explosives, Division agents eliminated Captain Perez and what LMB forces in the underground base.

Remaining LMB forces, wanting revenge were able to rally the other factions in one final desperate attempt to wipe out Division agents once and for all. In addition, they were able to somehow contact the Hunters and convinced them to join forces in hunting down Division agents. However, the efforts failed and nearly every single force were wiped out.


Events of Tom Clancy's The Division 2

The loss of Charles Bliss and Captain Perez had a profound effect on the LMB. In addition, there was a last-ditch attempt by some LMB soldiers to join forces with the remnants of the other organizations like the Rikers and Cleaners, some had even joined the JTF. The remaining LMB had practically been left a shadow of its former self, with many soldiers effectively leaderless and badly demoralized. However, as the Black Tusk began mobilizing in different states, remaining LMB forces were given the opportunity to take revenge on both the JTF and Division agents. The LMB was officially merged with the Black Tusk, creating a new branch in the BTSU. This reinforced the Black Tusk's manpower while also giving the LMB both a new purpose and new tech.


Relationships with other organizations

Prior to the activation of the Second Wave of Division agents, the LMB thought lowly of JTF to the point they don't even see them as a threat. Colonel Bliss views the JTF as a bunch of "ragtag volunteers". Rioters have been known to avoid LMB territories entirely as they fear their ruthlessness.

Conversely, the LMB views the Cleaners and Rikers as a more legitimate threat, although it is unknown who they think is the bigger threat among the two. One LMB report shows two LMB soldiers disagreeing with each on who they think is stronger. One of them believes the Rikers are stronger because they are filled with dangerous criminals and have access to an array of weapons. The other believes the Cleaners are stronger because of their flamethrowers and their fanatical discipline makes them unable to feel fear.

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, Cleaners, and Hunters to combat the JTF and Division agents as well as to hunt down Aaron Keener.

LMB Enemy Types

These guys are working overtime to secure Bliss' vision of New York, and they have access to top-notch and sometimes experimental equipment. Don't underestimate them.
Those flashbangs they use to blind targets have crippling effects. Do they care? Of course they don't.

Riflemen are the LMB's common foot soldiers. They are less dangerous than other LMB soldiers, but due to their training and equipment, should not be underestimated.

Strategic Data

  • Basic LMB units armed with assault rifles.
  • Rank I variants can be recognized by their black ballistic vests, white ski masks, and SWAT helmets.
  • Rank II variants encountered in Missions and the Dark Zone (recognizable by their black helmets and gas masks) may carry Military P416s (Standard) or Enhanced ACR-E (Veteran/Elite) and Flashbang Grenades. They can be recognised by their black helmets, gas masks, and black ballistic vests.
  • Elite Rank II Variants are armed with White Phosphorus Grenades.
  • Standard SF riflemen carry flashbang grenades.

These guys use grenade launchers and they have dangerous munitions. Don't get hit by those launchers, or they'll need a sponge to mop you up.

Grenadiers are the LMB's destruction experts, easily destroying their opponents with a grenade launcher. They are cool and confident during battle, but sometimes make risky decisions and can snap under pressure.

Strategic Data

  • LMB soldiers armed with grenade launchers that flush the player out of cover.
  • Can be recognized by their black helmets and ballistic vests, grenade satchel and stored grenades.
  • Shooting these grenades will explode, do damage, and sometimes kill the Grenadier.
  • They will fire 3 grenades in each volley. Shooting them during this phase will stop the volley, but will not drop a grenade on himself.
  • Rank II and Special Force variants encountered in Legendary missions only fire one Airburst Grenade, instead of a Concussion Grenade.

These guys have mostly been written off as pyschopaths, but don't dismiss them - there's nothing more dangerous than military grade shotguns at close range.
I once saw one of these assholes use these shock grenades on civilians, for fun. I will never understand what can drive them to attack defenseless people.

LMB Scouts are close range units that disregard their own safety to eliminate threats. They are unusually reckless for trained soldiers, but are a serious threat on the field. All agents should prioritise Scouts if spotted in the field.

Strategic Data

  • Close range LMB units that have assault rifles at long range and switch to shotguns at close range.
  • Rank I variants can be recognized by their dark red ski masks, dark grey ballistic vests and winter camouflage pants.
  • Rank II and Special Force variants encountered in Missions and the Dark Zone that can be recognised by their white hoods and gas masks.
  • They use SASG-12 shotguns and use Shock Grenades.

These guys are the best - their target acquisition is top-notch and their weaponry makes them lethal. Make sure you're not on their hit list.

Snipers are LMB scouts, tasked with recon of enemy terrain and assasinations, and they are cunning and absolutely lethal. When not working, they spend their time getting rest or on the firing range.

Strategic Data

  • Long range combatants that attempt to eliminate their targets with sniper rifles.
  • Snipers can be recognised by their hooded white cloak and amber ski goggles.
  • They have less health and (if Veteran/Elite rank) armour compared to regular LMB soldiers.
  • They also deploy proximity Claymore Mines.
  • Rank II and Special Force variants encounter can deploy Shock Mines, a Navy MP5-N for use and Dazzler blinding lasers.

Evil geniuses. These guys use reverse-engineered turrets, based on the Division's turrets. That one was probably Keener's idea.

LMB Engineers are support soldiers who use their knowledge of engineering and robotics to utilise turrets and support their fellow LMB soldiers. They are often found repairing damaged technology or working with Rogue Division Agents to reverse engineer SHD tech.

Strategic Data

  • Support units armed with turrets stronger than those of the Cleaners and will repair them when damaged.
  • Rank I variants are armed with P416s and turrets that use regular ammunition.
  • On Legendary mission, Special Forces Engineers are armed with Military M870s and can deploy multiple tougher turrets.
  • On-Resistance, (Special Force and Rank II) Engineers can use special ammunition (Fire and Shock) and their turrets are equipped with special ammunition.

You know, I got in a fight with one of these guys once, and they are surprisingly effective in combat. Whoever said medics were pacifists was either an idiot, or didn't know what he was talking about
Those medics are ex-military and experienced field surgeons. Most of the work for them is done by the support station though.

Combat Medics are the LMB's frontline workers, risking life and limb to save their fellow soldiers. When off the field, they are either found working in a field hospital or teaching others about basic first aid.

Strategic Data

  • Support Units armed with assault rifles or SMGs.
  • Rank I variants will run up to other LMB soldiers to heal them.
  • Rank I variants are armed with Police M4s (Regular) or an AUG Para XS SMG (Veteran/Elite).
  • They can be recognized by their large backpack, green ski mask, and goggles.
  • Rank II variants wearing a green skullcap and a gas mask will deploy healing stations that can heal multiple LMB soldiers at once.

Rank II variants only appear as Veteran/Elite Enemies, and are armed with tactical AUG A3Ps.

  • Elite variants have more powerful healing stations that can recover enemy armor as well.
  • Special Forces variants have an even more powerful healing station; in addition, these stations are much stronger than standard Elite variants. SF Medics repair these stations twice as fast.
  • Named SF medics can used First Aid.
  • Named HVT Medics are often armed with a Custom M870 MCS and Elite Support Stations.

The fuckers are a thorn in our side. When they're not imposing martial law, executing JTF, or killing good Agents, these assholes like to use civilian shelters for target practice. They really don't buy into Bliss' twisted sense of honor.

LMB Gunners are offensive units that attempt to lay support fire for their fellow soldiers. They are aggressive, confident, and extremely dangerous on the battlefield. They are often found commanding other LMB soldiers and are typically veterans of the battlefield.

Strategic Data

  • LMB offensive units armed with LMGs, that attempt to lay suppressive fire on targets.
  • Gunners have twice as much armor and health as normal LMB soldiers.
  • Gunners can be recognized by their riot helmets, white ski masks, and heavy backpack.
  • SF variants are faster deploying and do more damage than Rank I Gunners.

I have literally never seen ANY professional soldier swing a shield like a baseball bat - I'd say they've watched too many movies, but even i can't think of a movie where they do that. That shield is extremely annoying though - it makes them a bullet sponge.

LMB Tanks are hardened enemies who command other troops in battle and provide suppressive fire. They are in charge of training new recruits. They however have a serious superiority complex , which causes them to make risky decisions.

Strategic Data

  • LMB offensive units armed with LMGs, Pistols and Tactical Shields that attempt to lay suppressive fire on targets.
  • Tanks have twice as much armor and health as normal LMB soldiers.
  • Tanks can be recognised by their riot helmets, gas masks, winter camouflage, and heavy backpack.
  • They only appear as Rank II and above.
  • Tanks use a Tactical Shield to move while armed with an M9 pistol; they will plant their Tactical Shield to use as cover and fire their M60 LMG from a fixed position.
  • They can be recognised by their winter camouflage shirt, gas mask, and bulkier shield.
  • Both the Tank and Gunner have a backpack that holds a red ammo box; a weak spot that, if shot, will start a spray of bullets causing them damage and distracting them as well as potentially damaging players and NPCs nearby.
  • SF Named Tanks on Legendary difficulty will have a Police T821 SMG instead of an M9 Pistol while moving.
  • HVT Named High-Risk Tanks are armed with Police T821s.

These guys are all frontline leaders, and they are heavily equipped. Don't get hit by their white phosphorus grenades, or they'll need a hose to clean you up.

Squad Leaders are the LMB's frontline officers. They are always willing to take charge and take a bullet for those under their command. They inspire the troops they command in battle, and should always be high-priority targets.

Strategic Data

  • LMB support units that buff their fellow soldiers to do more damage.
  • Squad Leaders have more health and armor than a standard LMB soldier.
  • They can be identified by their lack of helmets, headsets, red bandanas, and armbands.
  • Typically only encountered in Dark Zone 5 and 6, or in Challenging difficulty.
  • They are always armed with White Phosphorus Grenades.
  • On Legendary missions, Resistance, and in West Side Pier,
  • SF Squad leaders use fully-automatic P416s with a chance to inflict bleed.

Most of these traitors came from the dark zone, but some went rogue off their own bat. You'd be surprised at how annoying it is to have your own turrets shoot at you due to their hacking capabilities.

LMB agents are Rogue Division Agents who work with Aaron Keener and are LMB contractors. They are incredibly lethal in the field, having LMB field support and possessing SHD tech and advanced weaponry. They are a serious threat and should prioritised as targets.

  • Rogue Division Agents encountered in a few missions and in the higher Dark Zones (5 and 6) as Bosses, and also as regular Elites on Challenging.
  • They can be identified by their gas masks, winter camouflage clothing, and hacked red SHD Tech.
  • They have more health and armor than other regular soldiers of equivalent rank.
  • They are armed with ACRs, AUGs, or SASG-12s, and can deploy Seeker Mines and Turrets including EMP Grenades.
  • They can also signal to hack your own gadgets to work for them.
  • Special variants appearing in High-Value Targets and Legendary missions are armed with a Black Market AK-74 and can use Sticky Bomb and First Aid.

What kind of fresh hell is this? Who is supplying the LMB with this kind of gear?
  • Helicopter fought at the UN as part of the LMB's last stand.
  • Armed with a minigun and rocket pods. Can deploy flares to blind players.

The LMB are contractors, but they bought most of their heavy hardware before the outbreak. This is one of them - an APC with a fucking grenade launcher. Overkill.
  • Helicopter fought at the UN as part of the LMB's last stand in the water treatment plant.
  • Armed with a grenade launcher and a rocket barrage. Also armed with a turret similar to em-placed ones.

Locks on to the player with a laser pointer. There are two types. One of the types is armed with a machine gun and can be identified by a red laser, the other type is armed with a turret that fires shock darts, which is identified by a blue laser. The drones only appear in Falcon Lost and the Resistance game mode.

Gameplay

The LMB are some of the toughest AI enemies that the player will encounter in Manhattan. Their ranks can range from Lvl 20-30, and above 31 in the Dark Zone. Engaging groups of LMB soldiers on the same level, or higher than the player is not recommended unless the player is accompanied by group members, as they will be able to make short work of the player.

Snipers will act like any other sniper unit, staying back and attempting to pick the player off from a distance. Some Elite Snipers have an under barrel-mounted laser/strobe device that can blind the player during engagements, such as the first sniper encountered in General Assembly. They also throw shock mines that will stun the player if tripped. Unlike snipers from other factions, LMB snipers are sometimes outfitted with sub-machine guns instead of pistols for use at close range.

Riflemen use assault rifles and flashbang or stun grenades to assault the player. These are the most common LMB soldier encountered. A common tactic used by Riflemen is to flank the players while they are distracted by other LMB soldiers.

Scouts will run up as close to the player as possible, like the Rikers, and use a semi-automatic shotgun. When playing on Hard or Challenging, or if too low in level, multiple Scouts can easily wipe out teams of Agents.

Gunners act like other AI heavy gunners, they normally have heavy armor, and can sometimes be seen using riot shields. LMB Gunners are the only Heavy-type enemy to appear as regular enemies, rather than only as Veteran (purple) or Named Elite (gold) rank enemies.

Grenadiers will use a grenade launcher, instead of hand grenades, which allows them to fire multiple grenades at a time instead of one like other enemies will do.

Engineers will deploy turrets that are much stronger than those of the Cleaners and will repair them when damaged.

Medics will deploy support stations to heal nearby LMB soldiers, as well as themselves, and move to repair their stations once they are damaged. On Hard or Challenging difficulty, Medics should be primary targets if no Scouts are present. Their support stations will constantly heal all LMB soldiers, and if there is even one Medic left, they will repair the damaged station or place down another one if destroyed.

The LMB, due to their connection with Aaron Keener, is also known for having rogue First Wave agents at their disposal, capable of using similar tech and abilities as the agents that fight against the Battalion, such as turrets, seeker mines, and the likes. They are also capable of hacking any Second Wave agents' equipment such as their own turrets, and mines, to the LMB's advantage.

In New York, The Black Tusk is revealing to be supplying the Last Man Battalion with Carl Gustav's and other heavy armaments as shown in the comic Tom Clancy's The Division: Extremis Malis.


Branches

Unlike the other factions in Tom Clancy's The Division, the LMB is the only faction that has multiple branches.

Rank I

The most common LMB type seen around the city. They can be identified by their white clothing, black vests, and white ski masks.

Rank II

Rank II LMB soldiers are seen in some of the last missions and incursions, usually used for defensive reasons. They can be identified by their solid black clothing and face masks. They do more damage than their Rank I counterparts and have access to tactical grenades.

Special Forces, or Rank III

LMB soldiers that are only seen on missions set on Legendary Difficulty. They have the same look as their Rank II counterparts, only with a light grey vest instead of solid black. They don't have an enemy level; instead, a shield symbol is behind their archetype symbol, indicating that they have the highest amount of damage and health.

Legendary missions usually start with a squad of LMB SF on regular difficulty, but after they're killed all LMB SF encountered from that point on are encountered as Elite.


Final Boss

The final boss fight is fought at the United Nations building. The player must fight the LMB leader, Charles Bliss, who uses a UH-60 Black Hawk military helicopter armed with miniguns and rocket pods.

In order to do sufficient damage to Bliss, the player must manually activate the six turrets encountered earlier that are spread out around the courtyard. The turrets will begin firing at the helicopter, but after about 10–15 seconds of fire Bliss will destroy the turret with rockets. The helicopter will fire its miniguns at the player, which will put the player in a bleed-out state in a matter of seconds. The helicopter will also use its rocket pods to target a player and barrage the area they are in, acting much like Grenadiers. Once the bosses armor bar is at about half, LMB soldiers will begin pouring out of the U.N. building to engage the player; these will normally consist of Riflemen and Scouts but can include Medics as well.

After the helicopter is damaged to the point of its health being below 25%, it will catch on fire. Upon the health bar reaching 0%, the helicopter will crash into the nearby building to the south of the courtyard, killing Bliss on impact. After the remaining LMB soldiers are killed four items of superior rarity will drop around the helicopter crash site.

Until Update 1.1, this boss fight marked the last "major" boss fight in the game, and up until Update 1.2 that title belonged to the APC in Falcon Lost. As of 1.2., The last "major" boss fight in the game now belongs to the Firetruck, Dubbed "Dragon One" by the cleaners In Dragon's Nest.

Trivia

  • The LMB is one of the more morally ambiguous enemy factions. While they are absolutely ruthless, they mostly believe they are doing the right thing. And in some cases, they seemingly have more success than the JTF. Their strict rules are oppressive, but the civilians in the LMB territory are far more safe from rioters, rikers, and cleaners than civilians in some of the JTF controlled areas. One phone recording of two rioters talking reveals that they are far more afraid of the LMB, opting to risk facing the JTF instead, whom they consider to be soft and less deadly.
  • The civilians are safe due to the frequent LMB, heavily armed patrols and checkpoints all throughout their territory with virtually no presence from other factions. If a civilian comes to close to a patrol, they will issue a verbal warning. If the civilian moves away, the soldiers will not shoot; but if the civilian comes closer, they will shoot and kill him or her.
  • On the other hand, the LMB does little to improve the living conditions of the civilians in their territory. Being a militaristic organization, most of their assets and knowledge are focused on the tactical side. While the JTF draws from police, military, medical, engineering, and maintenance organizations, the LMB has done little recruiting at all from the population, possibly because few want to live under their rule or they do not trust civilians. The engineering and medical resources that they do possess are dedicated entirely on their military mission. This makes the LMB very combat effective, but means any civilians have to do without.
  • If the player purchases the LMB Faction Bundle from the Premium Vendor, they will get the Rifleman outfit.
    • Players can earn parts of this bundle from doing Incursions, as well as missions that have Heroic difficulty.
  • The LMB is shown to be getting supplied by the Black Tusk to keep the JTF and Agents busy in Manhattan after Bliss's death, as shown in the comic Tom Clancy's The Division: Extremis Malis.
  • According to a State of the Game podcast a portion of the LMB were absorbed into Black Tusk and will provide Black Tusk with new archetypes. These will include Rushers (timestamp 26:25) and Supports (timestamp 28:11).
  • A portion of the LMB is shown to have joined the JTF after Bliss's death according to the Animated Short for The Warlords of New York. LMB Riflemen, Rushers, and Squad Leaders are wearing JTF letters on their apparel now. They are no longer using the color scheme of red, white, and black. It is now green, grey, and black.
