Rogue Division Agents are former Division agents who disavowed the Strategic Homeland Division for one reason or another and has either lent their services to another faction such as the Last Man Battalion or are working on their own, both cases working against the Division itself. For an agent, to turn their back on the Division is to commit treason against the United States federal government; yet, it is the freedom and relative autonomy with which agents operate that gives them the potential to turn renegade. Most rogue agents are presumed to have come about following the Joint Task Force's disastrous handling of the Dark Zone. The most prominent and dangerous of these rogue agents is Aaron Keener.
During the New York City outbreak the JTF failed to handle and control the quarantined center of Manhattan known as the N.Y.C. Dark Zone. The result was the JTF pulling out of the Dark Zone completely, leaving behind many valuable gears, First Wave Agents, and any hope of re-establishing control of the area in the lawless area. The event embittered First Wave Agent Aaron Keener into going rouge as he began to lose faith in the government. Keener then began recruiting other First Wave Agents into going rouge and joining him, persuading the agents about the government's decision to abandon the Dark Zone as a "betrayal". In a recording Aaron Keener described his chances in recruiting other agents as a "one-in-three" success rate, suggesting that at least one-third of the surviving First Wave defected to Keener's side. Under Aaron Keener's leadership they later supported the Last Man Battalion dominance. It's possible that some rogue agents became the Hunters as it would explain how they're capable of killing several Division Agents.
The Division 2
Much like in NYC, the government's deteriorating control over the the nation's capitol made other agents begin to lose faith in the government and any hope of bringing back order. Various echos and phone recording reveal that some agents went rouge by resorting to banditry or peacefully went AWOL to go home (possibly to protect their friends and family).
A RDA will carry multiple weapons such as a shotgun, light machine gun, and higher level ones will carry snipers. Along with lots of weapons, they have Division tech such as seeker mines and turrets. They can also hack the players turrets and seeker mines and turn them against the player who deployed them. When fighting one, keep your distance and watch out for their seeker mines they deploy, in addition to EMP grenades that they will throw at you. The best weapon to use against one is either a sniper rifle, SMG, or a assault rifle.
Most rogue Division agents will use the base Seeker Mines and Turrets. Seeker Mines are deployed at their feet, which means you can completely avoid them by being on higher ground where there are no stairs. Their Turrets can be thrown as well. Both of these skills are very small and hard to hit, much like an agent's own. Named rogue agents can use different skills such as First Aid and Sticky Bomb, so be aware and alert for anything. In particular, their Sticky Bombs will explode very shortly after they land at the designated position marked by the red circle that appears where it will land, so move quickly if you see an RDA using one.
