Additional Information



There is no room for weakness. Cowards die on their knees. It's gonna be great.
- Antwon Ridgeway (leader of the True Sons)



The True Sons are a major enemy faction in Tom Clancy's The Division 2.

Having some resemblance to the New York faction, the LMB (Last Man Battalion), in regards of military training and firepower, they are the second most organised, disciplined and advanced enemy faction, right below the Black Tusk.

The True Sons are former members of the Washington D.C. Joint Task Force who alongside with their founder and leader; Colonel Antwon Ridgeway, betrayed the nation during the city's collapse into chaos from the "Dollar Flu" outbreak.

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 across Washington D.C., they retreated back to their final stronghold in the Capitol Building, where Division agents with the assistance of the remaining JTF and Civilian Militia assaulted the facility. After sweeping through the complex, True Sons General and 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.


True Sons

A fascist 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.

Intelligence Brief

When the pandemic broke out, chaos and panic quickly spread across Washington D.C. In an attempt to control the spreading of the virus, the newly formed JTF established a quarantine on Roosevelt Island. Colonel Antwon Ridgeway formerly of the Maryland National Guard was given the responsibility to enforce the quarantine and ensure that everything ran smoothly. Seeing all the tragedy caused by the virus and how overwhelmed the JTF had become, Ridgeway started to lose faith in his commander's ability to save Washington D.C. He quickly came to the conclusion that there need to be drastic actions taken to ensure their survivial.

As a strong believer in the need for proper authority and discipline, Ridgeway decided to take matters into his own hands. In frustration and fear for the city's future, he ordered his guards around the quarantine to bar the entrances and exits and not let anyone in or out even the medical staff attending to the sick. He started to redirect essential resources from going into the quarantine, letting people starve to death and withholding medicine. In his eyes, the sick and the weak were already dead, so his number one priority became to secure the future of his own men. When confronted by a CERA doctor that she would report Ridgeway's actions to his superiors, he murdered the doctor right in front of terrified civilians. He then ruthlessly ordered his men to put down any resistance from inside the quarantine.

Ridgeway's actions were tainted by his willingness to do whatever it took for the well-being of his soldiers and his repulsion of the sick. Due to the chaotic state of the city, he was able to abuse his authority for a long time before the commander of the JTF found out and dispatched a Division agent to investigate. This led to a confrontation at the CERA Constitution Camp where the SHD Agent witnessed Colonel Ridgeway murder a civilian for breaking quarantine, this led the Agent into shooting one of Ridgeway's unit and place Ridgeway under arrest on 55 counts of murder. He was then court martialed along with several officers of his unit and found guilty on all counts and imprisoned in a military stockade. However, it did not take long until loyal members of Ridgeway's unit seeing the JTF's actions as a betrayal, broke into the stockade and freed him.

In Ridgeway's eyes, he had done nothing wrong. According to him, he was the only one with a realistic and viable solution to the situation. Therefore, the betrayal of his fellow JTF officers and imprisonment filled him with rage and hate towards the JTF and the federal government. As soon as he got out, he gathered men from his former unit and the stockade where he was held prisoner. Together they captured the JTF officers that had imprisoned him and held a symbolic tribunal for them, only to execute them all moments later – and so True Sons were born.

During Ridgeway's imprisonment, the now deeply fractured and desperate JTF lose contact of the Rossevelt Island Quarantine as it is overrun by the newly formed Outcasts, who have a deep hatred for Ridgeway and the True Sons due to their treatment by them.

After Washington 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 takes 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 southern part of the city, the criminal gangs that are running riot further to the north decide to unite to defend their territory from the True Sons, they become known as the Hyenas.

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. and thus the biggest threat. The Outcasts despise them for Ridgeways's quarantine and treatment of them and the Hyenas unified because of their war against the True Sons. An echo around the Campus settlement territory shows that the Hyenas and Outcasts are willing to cooperate with each other to take out a squad of True Sons guarding a building.

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 engage 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.
