The Division 2 is a very social game. There is also the new clans system, which is massively improved from the first game and proffers some very rare rewards for those who want to play as part of a larger group. However, all of these social features can be a little confusing at first — especially when most of these features must be unlocked through various and at different points in the main campaign. In order to help you navigate the various social aspects of The Division 2, we have put together this handy guide for partying up and playing with friends. Party members will show up as blue icons on your HUD and map, while clan members will get a yellow icon.
A BBC investigation has revealed the scale of operations by a shadowy Russian mercenary group in Libya's civil war, which includes links to war crimes and the Russian military. A Samsung tablet left by a fighter for the Wagner group exposes its key role - as well as traceable fighter codenames.
And the BBC has a "shopping list" for state-of-the-art military equipment which expert witnesses say could only have come from Russian army supplies.
How to friends in the division 2
The group was first identified in when it was backing pro-Russian separatists in the conflict in eastern Ukraine. Wagner's fighters appeared in Libya in April when they ed the forces of a rebel general, Khalifa Haftar, after he launched an attack on the UN-backed government in the capital, Tripoli.
The conflict ended in a ceasefire in October The group is notoriously secretive, but the BBC has managed to gain rare access to two former fighters. They revealed what type of person was ing Wagner - and its lack of any code of conduct. There is little doubt that they kill prisoners - something one ex-fighter freely admits.
The 'shopping list'
Its other revelations include evidence of suspected war crimes, including the intentional killing of civilians. One Libyan villager describes how he played dead as his relatives were killed. His testimony helped the BBC team identify a suspected killer.
Describing another possible war crime, a Libyan government soldier also recalls how a comrade, his friend, surrendered to Wagner fighters but was shot twice in the stomach. The soldier has not seen him since, nor three other friends taken away at the same time.
The Samsung computer tablet also provides evidence of the mercenaries' involvement in the mining and booby-trapping of civilian areas. Just hours after the release of the BBC's report into Wagner's activities in Libya, the deputy public prosecutor at the Libyan Military Prosecutor's Office, Mohamed Gharouda, announced that an arrest warrant had been issued for the son of late Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi.
According to the order, which was released internally last week, Saif al-Islam Gaddafi is wanted on charges of war crimes committed by the group during Gen Haftar's offensive against the capital Tripoli. He was arrested during the uprising in Libya and later sentenced to death in absentia over violence against protesters.

Inhowever, he was released by the militia holding him. Saif al-Islam has long been suspected of having connections to Russia and the Wagner group, and is believed to be Moscow's favourite candidate to rule Libya. The tablet was left behind by an unknown Wagner fighter after the group's fighters retreated from areas south of Tripoli in spring Its contents include maps in Russian of the frontline, giving confirmation of Wagner's ificant presence and an unprecedented insight into the group's operations.
There is drone footage and codenames of Wagner fighters, at least one of whom the BBC believes it has identified. The tablet is now in a secure location. A comprehensive list of weapons and military equipment is included in a document dated 19 Januarygiven to the BBC by a Libyan intelligence source and probably recovered from a Wagner location. The document indicates who may be funding and backing the operation.
It lists materiel needed for the "completion of military objectives" - including four tanks, hundreds of Kalashnikov rifles and a state-of-the-art radar system.
A military analyst told the BBC that some of the weapons technology would only be available from the Russian military. Another expert, a specialist on the Wagner group, said the list pointed to the involvement of Dmitry Utkin.
He is the ex-Russian military intelligence man believed to have founded Wagner and given it its name his own former call. And in our visual breakdown of the "shopping list" and another documentthe expert says the words Evro Polis and General Director suggest the involvement of Yevgeny Prigozhin, a rich businessman close to President Vladimir Putin.
Investigations by Western journalists have linked Mr Prigozhin to Wagner. He has always denied any link to Evro Polis or Wagner. Mr Prigozhin commented that he had not heard anything on the violation of human rights in Libya by Russians: "I am sure that this is an absolute lie.
Russia's Ministry of Foreign Affairs told the BBC it is doing "its utmost to promote a ceasefire and a political settlement to the crisis in Libya. The ministry added that details about Wagner in Libya are mostly based on "rigged data" and were aimed at "discrediting Russia's policy" in Libya. Officially, it does not exist - but up to 10, people are believed to have taken at least one contract with Wagner since it emerged fighting alongside pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine in About 1, Wagner men are estimated to have fought with Gen Khalifa Haftar in Libya from to He replied: "It is a structure, aimed at promoting the interests of the state beyond our country's borders.
As for its fighters, he said they were either "professionals of war", people looking for a job, or romantics looking to serve their country.

The other ex-fighter told the BBC there were no clear rules of conduct. If a captured prisoner had no knowledge to pass on, or could not work as a "slave", then "the result is obvious". Andrey Chuprygin, an expert working with the Russia International Council, said the stance of the Russian government was - "let them this thing, and we'll see what the result is. If it works out well, we can use it to our advantage. If it turns out badly, then we had nothing to do with it".
