The Division 2 Features Clever ‘Spider-Man’ Easter Egg
In between the business-as-usual shooting of Tom Clancy’s The Division 2, the Ubisoft title has been one to leave oodles of Easter Eggs all over its massive open world, and while some can be pretty subtle, others have been references that fans can easily figure out. The game’s latest discovery lies somewhere in the middle, featuring a pretty clever nod to Marvel’s Spider-Man on the PlayStation 4.
As players of Marvel’s Spider-Man are likely aware, the web-head often leaves backpacks behind to retrieve at a later time, using his web-slinging powers to stick them to the side of walls. It appears Ubisoft’s shooter couldn’t help but reference the popular Marvel game in its representation of Washington, D.C., leaving behind one of these webbed-up backpacks for curious players to find. Marvel’s Spider-Man studio Insomniac Games recently pointed out the discovery over Twitter, as seen in the video below.

Such an indirect reference to Spidey will surely keep attentive fans’ eyes peeled for more Easter Eggs, an idea that seems like a given having seen several discovered on a regular basis. One of the more notable findings has sparked speculation about the future of the Assassin’s Creed franchise, the surfaced image seemingly confirming a Norse Viking setting for the series’ next entry.
As for The Division itself, the multiplayer shooter has more than a few things planned for its future as well. The game upcoming Title Update 3 is set to introduce a number of new features and fixes to the game, including the 8-player raid Operation Dark Hours. Though it was supposed to go live later this month, devs recently made the decision to move the update’s release to sometime next month in May.
The Division 2 is out now for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
