A group of paramilitary warlords bent on using their combat expertise and overwhelming firepower to dominate their enemies and expand their territory. Smart and organized, the True Sons are led by a former JTF officer whose ruthlessness and combat prowess make him and his combatants a horrifying force.

The True Sons are a major enemy faction in Tom Clancy's The Division 2. Having some resemblance to the New York faction, the Last Man Battalion, in regards to military training, fortification, and firepower, they are the second most organized, disciplined, and advanced enemy faction, right below the Black Tusk.

This powerful, well-armed group of paramilitary soldiers is comprised of Joint Task Force deserters and mutineers now using their combat expertise and overwhelming firepower advantage to dominate enemies and expand their area of influence. Smart and organized, the True Sons consider themselves a territorial entity with a legitimate army. They seek to expand their influence, consolidate power, and suppress all rivals in the region.

Led by a former JTF field commander named Antwon Ridgeway, the True Sons are typical of a warlord-led faction in a conflict zone or failed state. Their ruthlessness and combat prowess make them a formidable force in the field. All Division agents are advised to exercise extreme caution when undertaking unsupported actions against this adversary.

Background

The pandemic hit Washington D.C. hard, killing many civilians and security forces alike. Despite field inoculations and other immune-support antiviral medications, some JTF units suffered more than seventy-five percent attrition from the smallpox. This spawned discontent in the surviving ranks. In early January, Colonel Antwon Ridgeway of the Maryland National Guard was promoted to JTF field commander, southeast region, and given the rank of General following the death of his predecessor in a vehicular accident. Secretly disgusted with what he considered the excessive caution and timidity of JTF's chain of command - officers who issued orders from a disconnected bubble of safety within their fortified base of operations on The White House grounds - General Ridgeway started taking increasingly aggressive and often lethal measures against insurgents, looters and even relatively benign protest crowds inside quarantine zones. As a result, he earned repeated reprimands from JTF brass.

Eventually, Ridgeway's cruel and egregious maltreatment of detainees in Roosevelt, the island quarantine encampment on the Potomac River, led to his downfall. Court martialed for insubordination, Ridgeway was stripped of his rank and imprisoned at JTF's make-shift detention area in the basement of the American History Museum. But after a short incarceration, he escaped (along with numerous other prisoners) thanks to help from loyal members of his former JTF unit lead by Major Ashford and Captain Keates.

This unit plus new followers freed from the stockade formed the core of a new faction, initially christened the "True Sons of Liberty" but soon shortened to just True Sons. Their first order of business was to kidnap several of the senior JTF officers responsible for Ridgeway's arrest, convene a tribunal to try them, and then summarily execute them.

As the True Sons faction grew, other militia groups in the D.C. area were either assimilated or eradicated. Thanks in part to their formal counterinsurgency training and military-grade weapons and gear, the True Sons quickly rose to a dominant position within D.C. proper.

After Washington, D.C. begins to collapse from the uncontrollable pandemic and subsequent disasters with DC-62, President Mendez orders the remaining government members including Speaker of the House, Andrew Ellis to evacuate the city. Ridgeway took advantage of the chaos and storms The Capitol and devastates the remaining loyal JTF except for those at based at The White House.

When the True Sons have full control of the southern part of the city, the formation of the True Sons and their actions in the city have been the major cause of the creation of the Outcast and Hyena factions. After suffering from multiple defeats and losing key personnel across Washington, D.C., they retreated back to their final stronghold in the Capitol Building, where Division agents with the assistance of the remaining Joint Task Force and Civilian Militia assaulted the facility. After sweeping through the complex, True Sons Leader, Antwon Ridgeway, made his own appearance, giving one final attempt to thwart the assault.

With the death of Ridgeway and the remaining True Sons garrison at The Capitol destroyed, the True Sons have since been scattered across D.C., attempting to survive against The Division and now the new enemy, the Black Tusk.


Intelligence Brief

The True Sons currently sit at the top of the hostile faction "food chain" and are seeking to lock in their standing there. Division field intelligence indicates that the gang's primary goals are as follows:

  • Expand territorial control to include key strategic points, access corridors, and symbolic landmarks.
  • Control critical infrastructure and local resources.
  • Dominate and incorporate any remaining population clusters in the Washington, D.C. metro area.
  • Eliminate threats and rivals including other factions and groups as well as law enforcement elements like The Division and the JTF.
  • Research the possibility of DC-62 and chemical weapons, and if possible create prototypes.

Overall, the True Sons appear to be disciplined and well-coordinated. Most members are trained in either police or military tactics, though few have been deployed overseas in conflict zones. The few True Sons who aren't veterans or ex-cops come from violent crime backgrounds and, as a result, sometimes exhibit unconventional combat tactics. But General Ridgeway has built a regiment for his troops that includes standard military training to keep them battle-ready.

Behaviorally, True Sons tend to be oppressive and threatening in their inter-actions with civilians in their territories. To intimidate and control the local populace, they rely on casual cruelty and often dispense lethal punishment for randomly chosen violations.


Relationship with other factions

Being comprised of former JTF members and possessing military-grade technology, training, and discipline. The True Sons are seen by the other factions as the most dominant faction within D.C., acting as the catalyst for the formation of the Outcasts, who despise them for Ridgeway's quarantine and treatment of them, and the Hyenas, due to their unification in their conflict against the True Sons.

The True Sons are actively at war with the Hyenas and appear to be on the offensive against them. Some soldiers generally see the Hyenas as rats as one can be heard saying "Hey Hyena, crawl back to your hole" when engaging in combat against them.

The True Sons are hostile but not actively at war with the Outcasts, and vice versa. An audio recording revealed that when the Outcasts overthrew and took over the Roosevelt Island quarantine center the JTF (before they became True Sons) decided to monitor them rather than send more men to try and neutralize them. It's possible that the True Sons are still monitoring their movements and actions as they are tied up in a war against the Hyenas and don't see the Outcasts as a threat to their supremacy.

Following the death of their leader and the invasion of the Black Tusk, the True Sons are now at war with every faction and are vying for control of positions within D.C.

There are some incidents where some skirmish took place between True Sons and Black Tusk.[1]

When the foundry was captured by one of the only remaining True Sons officers - Colonel Morozova, she finally gave the True Sons a point to rally around for revenge against the Division. They utilized the foundry and scavenged resources to build an armored train, miniguns, RPGs, and other prototype technology to give them the edge. However, with the death of Colonel Morozova, the loss of the foundry, and the production line, the True Sons once again scattered over D.C. and the surrounding area.


Tactics

The True Sons are more dangerous than the other factions in Washington, D.C. due to their superior gear, training and knowledge. They are not experienced in conflict, but they are well trained and coordinated, typically relying on suppression tactics and snipers to pick targets off from distance, or utilize riot foam and shotguns to eliminate threats from close range. However, they are not afraid to scavenge from rival factions to bolster their arsenal of technology, possessing a wide variety of military and jury-rigged equipment from various rival factions.

Colonel Morozova
She never talks about her past, but her soldiers sure love to gossip. The only thing they agree on is that she broke some kind of all-time record with her military academy exams, years ago, but after that no-one really knows where she went or what she did. She knows a lot about a lot, I'm willing to bet she's been all over the world doing bad shit, but honestly? I'm not even sure I want to know. She scares me more than anything, and I've never even heard her raise her voice. - Zach Young United Ironworks

Gray used to be a big shot, superstar, surgeon somewhere. He stole a whole bunch of drugs, and like a dozen of his patients died in weird circumstances.

Archetypes

Ridgeway has these guys working overtime. I've never seen any group of people more dedicated to doing terrible deeds in the name of righteousness... well since the politicians fled D.C. Scratch that, at least some on the Hill were doing good work.

The Assault unit is largely comprised of ex-police and military personnel. Most have had previous weapons training, but few of them have real combat. Their primary objective is to keep order. When they're not participating in live operations, they're likely in the barracks enjoying some downtime or planning future operations.

BTSU Suicide Drones  •  BTSU Recon Drone
SHD Tech SHD Riot Foam Chem Launcher  •  SHD Shrapnel Trap  •  SHD Defender Drones
Strategic Data
  • Armed with a Police M4 (Regular) or a Custom P416 G3 (Veteran/Elite), this is the most basic type of True Sons soldier and have no unique ability of their own.
  • The Assault archetype will take cover when possible but will attempt to flank an enemy if they stay in one spot for too long.
  • They have average amounts of armour and health, but in larger numbers are deadly.
  • Elite variants will equipped with Flashbang Grenades and equip their P416 with an ACOG sight and Laser Pointer.
  • Bounty Assaults are equipped with Contact Concussion Mines, Incendiary/Frag/Shock grenades, SHD Riot Foam Chem Launcher and can deploy Riker MG Nest.
  • Named Assaults in the Dark Zones will be equipped with stolen BTSU gadgets such as Lethal Jamming Devices, Suicide Drones and Recon Drones and will throw Frag/Shock Grenades or DC-62 Grenades in a quick succession, and can deploy Hyena Incendiary RC Cars.

These guys couldn't bullseye a Mollens can from 20 yards before Ridgeway got ahold of them. He may be a poor excuse for a human, but he's one hell of a motivator. Now they're picking off people from halfway across the National Mall.

Snipers are methodical and know how to efficiently use cover. They formed from a group of hunters who believed that the True Sons are the only faction capable of saving America. Snipers spend most of their time honing their skills on the firing range and teaching other members to shoot.

Strategic Data
  • Armed with a Classic Model 700 (regular) or a SOCOM M1A (Veteran/Elite) sniper rifle.
  • The True Sons Sniper archetype tends to stay back behind cover and (if possible) at a higher elevation than their target.
  • They will fire at any exposed enemy that is out of cover.
  • They are also equipped with an M1911 (regular) or an M45A1 (Veteran/Elite) for close range.
  • Elite snipers will fire more frequently, which can make fighting them difficult without cover or a ballistic shield.
  • Bounty Snipers have Contact Concussion Mines, Laser Dazzler, SHD Riot Foam/Reinforser Chem Launcher, SHD Assault Turret, Flashbang/White Phosphorus grenades or have M32A1 Grenade Launcher loaded with 40 mm BTSU Airburst Grenades and can deploy a Hyena Sniper Turret/Cleaner Incendiary Artillery Turret/Riker MG Nest.
  • Named True Sons Snipers in the Dark Zones will be equipped with Molotov Cocktails, BTSU Lethal EMP Jammer Devices, Shock/Frag Grenades, or EMP Grenades which they throw in a quick succession, SHD Striker/Defender Drones, Laser Dazzler, and will have their health boosted once spawned.

One of these assholes told me to eat shit and die as he was pulling the pin on his grenade. So I leaned around the corner and popped him one in the hand. Dropped his grenade right there on his buddies. Listening to them whoopin' and hollerin' had me busting up.

Throwers will try to keep their distance in combat. While most lack military experience, they are aware of their firepower. To qualify as a Thrower, recruits must pass a competency test by throwing a live hand grenade a minimum of 25 meters.

Strategic Data
  • Armed with an MP5A2 (Regular) or a Tactical AUG A3P (Veteran/Elite), a True Sons Thrower is similar to the Assault unit, but has the advantage of grenades.
  • The Thrower will throw grenades to its target's last known location. These grenades are usually concussion grenades for Normal and Veteran variants.
  • However, the Elite versions often throw white phosphorus grenades that deal damage over an area over time and confuses anyone in the blast
  • They all have a grenade pouch on their right thigh that when shot will explode and deal damage to all units in the area.
  • If they are shot while they are in the process of throwing, they will drop their grenade in themselves, possibly killing them and any units that have the poor judgment to stand next to them.
  • Elite Throwers will equip their AUG A3 with a 552 Holo sight and Laser Pointer.
  • Bounty Named Throwers will be armed with Frag/Incendiary/DC-62 Grenades, or Shock Grenades which they throw in a quick succession, Proximity Mines, SHD Reinforcer/Firestarter Chem Launcher, and can deploy an Hyena Sniper Turret/Cleaner Incendiary Artillery Turret/Riker MG Nest.
  • Named Throwers in the Dark Zones will be equipped with EMP/Frag Grenades, or Shock Grenades which they throw in a quick succession, Molotov Cocktails, stolen BTSU gadgets such as Suicide Drones, Recon Drones, Lethal Jamming Devices, SHD Artillery Turrets and SHD Riot Foam Chem Launcher.

Some of the best medics made their way into Ridgeway's group of misfits and war criminals. I wish we could recruit them, but as it turns out, they're just as twisted as he is. I guess once society loses Kerman's and Koby's, it's shitbags all the way down. Present company excluded, of course.

Medics are highly sought after and anyone with basic first aid knowledge qualifies to join their ranks. All new recruits are asked about their previous medical experience. Even those with a rudimentary skillset are sent to the medical wing for further training.


Strategic Data
  • Armed with an M1911 Pistol(Regular) or an MP5-N SMG (Veteran/Elite), the Medic archetype is unique with its ability to revive fallen enemies with their entire health back. The Medic can also attack the player with their defibrillators, shocking them momentarily.
  • These defibrillators can also be found on their backpack, which if were shot will shock the Medic and any nearby units along with disabling their ability to revive.
  • Elite Medics will revive fallen enemies faster and provide the revived target with a health boost along with some armor should they revive a Veteran, Elite, or Named enemy.
  • Elite Medics will equip their MP5-N with an EXPS3 Holo sight and Laser Pointer.
  • Named Bounty Medics will be armed with Shock Grenades, SHD Restorer Hives, SHD Fixer Drones, SHD Firestarter Chem Launcher, SHD Sniper Turrets, have M32A1 Grenade Launcher loaded with 40 mm Incendiary Grenades, and can deploy Cleaner Incendiary Artillery Turret.
  • Named Medics in the Dark Zones will be equipped with Shock/DC-62/Frag Grenades, Molotov cocktails, SHD Striker Drones, SHD Restorer Hives, SHD Assault Turret, can Buff others enemies, give them overhealh, can have immune to negative effects and can deploy Hyena Incendiary RC Cars.

You know, I was once stuck in that goddamned foam for an hour. Got ambushed by a True Sons platoon south of the Mall, and one of these guys stuck that foam on me thinking I'd be an easy target. Wrong-o. Alani one, foam guy zero. Still, that foam is a real bitch to get out of your clothes.

Immobilizers fight at close range with chemical weapons. They are egotistical and ambitious, willingly volunteering themselves to test new and dangerous compounds on the battlefield. Many of them previously worked for the fire department's hazardous materials division.

Strategic Data
  • The Immobilizer archetype, armed with an Police M4, can be recognized by their blue surgical gloves and a blue bandana.
  • The Immobilizer is a close range enemy that flanks opponents.
  • While they are doing this or if they get close enough, they will start spraying riot foam that immobilizes the agent and forces them out of cover.
  • They have a canister on their back that when shot will explode and immobilize the unit and anything around it. This also disables the Immobilizer's ability to use the foam. The Elite variants cannot be immobilized by their own foam if their tank is shot, unlike the Normal and Veterans types, but they will take time to stop the leak.
  • Named Bounty Immobilizers will be armed with various tactical grenades and stolen enemy technology.

I had an engagement on the south Mall with one of these guys. I ran out of ammo right around the time I finally finished dislodging the last of his armor. Managed to finish him off with a pistol, but you know what's funny? The thing I noticed most when I got up close wasn't his ugly face... it was the eye-popping number of bad tattoos.

Tanks use their size to intimidate their enemies. They maintain a strict workout routine in order to withstand wearing heavy armour for extended periods of time. Tanks aren't used to their enemies retaliating and will become dismayed when they are attacked.

Strategic Data
  • Enemies padded in heavy armor that attack the agents with an M32A1 grenade launcher. It should be noted that the True Sons Tank has considerably more armor than the tanks from the Hyenas and the Outcasts, but not as much armor as the Black Tusk Tank.
  • They are very good with range games thanks to their weaponry but are not afraid of disposing of any reckless Division agents with one hit if they are close. Heavy Tanks are strictly elite or named enemies.
  • Shooting the Ammo box on their backpack does explosive damage to the Tank (typically destroying their chest plate), forces the True Sons Tank to switch to a Military M870 shotgun (they're still dangerous as Shotguns can do raw ballistic damage up close).
  • This can also be done if the civilian militia in sandbox mode are fighting one.
  • Bounty Tanks will equipped their Grenade Launchers with 40mm BTSU Airburst/Frag Grenades, throw Frag Grenades, and will continue to use the grenade launcher despite destroying the ammo box.
  • Named Tanks in the Dark Zones are significantly more dangerous, having stolen tech, grenades and explosives.
  • In Operation Iron Horse, Tanks will be equipped with a Police M4 with riot foam sprayer attachment, their ammo boxes will only immobilize the Tank if it gets shot.

Before the outbreak, I thought there was nothing more offensive at close range than bad breath. These guys have really been challenging that long-held belief.

Rushers charge into combat, exposed, and vulnerable. They fight for honor and want to die as heroes. They aren't military trained but have had previous close quarters experience: ex-cons, cage fighters. Rushers often hold mixed martial arts competitions in the barracks.

Strategic Data
  • The True Sons Scout is far more disciplined in combat as opposed to the Hyena Rusher (who attacks with a baton at close-range) and the Outcast Rusher (who utilizes the "Kamikaze" suicide bombing method).
  • Rushers can be recognized by their camouflage bandana, chested mounted pistol holster, blue caps, and an unused double-barrel shotgun.
  • They use a Super 90 (regular) or SASG-12 (Veteran/elite) shotgun for combat.
  • While they may not have as much life as a True Sons Assault Trooper, they can be potentially deadly since their shotguns can cause heavy damage in close range.
  • they will chase players for a long time before retreating to their starting position.
  • Elite variants will equip their SASG-12 with a Reflex Sight and Laser Pointer.
  • They have much less health and even the elite variants go down fairly quickly to a barrage of fire from pretty much every gun except a pistol.

If using unguided rockets in populated areas seems like a war crime... that's because it is. Then again, I'm not sure the Geneva Convention even applies these days. Who'd enforce it? Us? Taken a look at your turret recently? That thing's a war crime, too.

The RPG unit are mostly comprised of ex-army. While not all of them have previous experience using heavy weapons, they are the most qualified to take on that responsibility. The RPG unit take their role very seriously and contain some of the most highly trained soldiers within the True Sons.

Strategic Data
  • Long-Range True Sons who use a Rocket Propelled Grenade Launcher. Armed with a Carl Gustav RPG, they deal a good deal of damage if they are able to score a hit.
  • They tend to keep their distance from any agents, so playing aggressively tends to work with RPGs.
  • The missiles lock on the agent, so it's imperative to take the necessary steps to avoid getting hit.
  • The RPG Shooter also carries extra missiles on their back that when shot will explode, deal damage, and disable the Shooter's ability to use RPGs.
  • They are also armed with an M1911 (Regular) or an M45A1 (Veteran/Elite) pistol.
  • Bounty RPGs are also armed with Custom P416 G3's, Tear Gas/Incendiary Grenades, Hyena Shock Mines, SHD Explosive Seeker Mines, SHD Sniper Turrets, SHD Bombardier Drones and can deploy Riker MG Nest and Shock Ammo Box.

I have literally NEVER seen any trained professional swing their machine gun like a baseball bat. I'd say they watched too many movies, but I can't even think of a movie where they do that. Still though - their bullets are worse. Avoid those.

The Heavy Weapons were formed by ex-members of the armed forces. Due to their previous combat experience, they are in charge of providing new recruits with basic training. They are known to have a serious superiority complex, which often causes them to make risky decisions.

Strategic Data
  • Moderately armor padded, a True Sons Heavy Weapons soldier utilizes a Classic M60 (Normal) or a Military M60 E4 (Veteran/Elite) LMG and a Military M9 (Regular) or an Officer's M9 A1 pistol (Veteran/Elite). The Heavy Weapons soldier will fire from cover, or from a prone position should there be no nearby cover, and will lay down suppressive fire.
  • They are surprisingly accurate, so be careful even at a distance. They have an armoured helmet that protects their head until it is destroyed.
  • Their weak point is an ammo pack located on their back waist just like the Outcast Heavy Weapons, which when destroyed will cause them to panic and take damage over time, along with anyone who is unfortunate enough to be next to them when it detonates.
  • Should they survive their ammo pack being destroyed, they will switch to their Military M9 (Regular) or Officers M9 A1 (Veteran/Elite) making them much easier to deal with.
  • Elite Heavy Weapons will equip their Military M60 E4 with an ACOG sight and Laser Pointer.
  • Named Heavy Weapons can us their LMG even if the ammo pack is detonated.
  • Named Bounty Heavy Weapons armed with Shock/Incendiary/White Phosphorus Grenades, SHD Firestarter/ Chem Launcher or Shrapnel Trap and will deploy a True Sons Assault Turret/Hyena Sniper Turret/Cleaner Incendiary Artillery Turret, however, they cannot repair the turret.
  • Named Heavy Weapons in the Dark Zones will be equipped with EMP Grenades, Molotov Cocktails, Concussion Grenades, DC-62 Grenades, Airburst Seeker Mines and can deploy multiple Assault Drones.

The narrow AI required by their turrets came directly from consumer electronics. Turns out, the same tracking behaviour used in drones and mobile stabilizers can be used to select and track targets with weapons in real-time at surprising accuracy.

Engineers have a background in manufacturing and assembly. They will do whatever is necessary to ensure their turrets remain operational during combat and can often be seen risking enemy fire when their weapons fail. Some Engineers are overly attached to their weapons and have given them nicknames.

Strategic Data
  • The Engineer has the ability to set up a turret that will automatically shoot at enemies, as well as being armed with an M870 Express shotgun.
  • The turret, unlike the Hyena Engineer's sniper turret, functions similarly to the assault turret and will lay down constant fire on any enemies in its sight.
  • The turret can be temporarily disabled by shooting the ammo box situated on the left side. The Engineer will repair the turret should this occur or if it takes sufficient damage.
  • The Engineer can be prevented from deploying his turret in the first place by shooting it on the left side of his backpack.
  • Be advised that if the Engineer is killed before his turret, the turret will fire on any target including other True Sons as long as the ammo box wasn't destroyed.
  • Only veteran and higher ranks appear to spawn.
  • Engineers that are in cover will fire instead a pistol.
  • Elite Engineers will equip their Express M870 with a Reflex Sight and Laser Pointer.
  • Engineers appearing in different bounties will be equipped with Shock Grenades, Riot Foam Chem Launcher and Explosive Seeker Mines.
  • Engineers appearing in all three Dark Zones will be equipped with an M4A1 equipped with a Riot Foam Sprayer, Concussion Grenades, stolen Explosive Seeker Mines, an Incinerator Turret, Fragmentation Grenades, EMP Grenades, Restorer Hive and Lethal Jamming Devices that can drain the player's health and armor.

Anything can be a shield if your forearms can take it.

On Morodova's orders, three True Sons stick to Gray like glue whenever a fight starts. They have these ridiculously big shields, and their top priority is to figure out the biggest threat to Gray's life and get in the way. His ego is enormous, he loves this. Every bodyguard around him boosts his confidence and makes him harder and harder to kill. His bodyguard is called the "short straw".

Strategic Data
  • The Shield is an assault unit equipped with a Converted SMG-9 and steel shield.
  • Their shields can be broken with enough concentrated gunfire.
  • Killing these bodyguards makes Gray more susceptible to damage, but there is a constant stream of these that replace those killed.
  • These ONLY appear in the Lieutenant Gray raid boss fight and do not appear on the streets of D.C.
