ABOUT THE 420TH INFANTRY DIVISION

FOUNDED APRIL 20TH, 2001

About Us

In 2001 a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime that should have been legal. These men (and women) promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the digital underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have the skills, the right sense of humor, and the mental fortitude to survive the uniquely outrageous recruitment process, maybe you can enlist with The 420th Infantry Division.

The 420th Infantry Division is a 21+ online gaming clan and community focused on team play, camaraderie, respect, and hilarious antics. Members come from all walks of life, including full-time professionals, parents, military veterans, foreign dignitaries, and both casual and competitive PC gaming enthusiasts.

The 420th Infantry Division is organizationally comprised of a main core division [=420th=] and various operational sub-divisions for game-specific clans/guilds including [CDXX], [BUD], [420F], and [WGE].

Originally formed in 2001 as a tactical FPS squad in the very first Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon (PC), The 420th Infantry Division began full competitive operations upon the release of Battlefield 1942 by EA/DICE. With the Battlefield franchise, the clan evolved into a dedicated unit and competitively participated in the CAL and PL leagues.

The 420th BF History

Since then, The 420th Infantry Division has branched out into numerous sub-divisions operating in various other games, communities, and play styles.

Today, The 420th Infantry Division remains a close-knit organization of like-minded gamers from all walks of life and gaming genres with a core focus on camaraderie, casual play, respect and mature humor.

ALL =420th= members are bound by our Code of Conduct.

  1. No blatant or unwarranted disrespect to other players or clans on or off the field.
  2. Cheats of any kind are strictly prohibited.

GUIDELINES FOR MEMBERS

  1. RESPECT
    Treat others with respect at all times. Unsportsmanlike conduct is discouraged.
  2. INTEGRITY
    Maintain honor and integrity. Members will not cheat or knowingly associate with cheaters.
  3. ATTITUDE
    Success is often times more attitude than aptitude. Grin at challenges. Become the influence of motivation and encouragement to those around you.
  4. THE TEAM
    We are greater together than as individuals. Give consideration for team objectives before personal. Help your fellow teammates.
  5. THE TAG
    Wearing the =420th= tag makes you a direct representative of the clan. Do not ‘name share’. This means if a friend/relative/spouse wants to share an account, they should use their own name without the tag.
  6. FRIENDSHIP & REAL LIFE
    The =420th= is primarily a group of like-minded friends that enjoy a good game. Real life obligations will always supersede clan affairs. Be open and mindful of others’ real life issues. Keep the clan informed when possible.
    If inter-clan conflicts can be resolved through reasonable and friendly means, it should. Ego disputes will be settled via in-game knife fight; losers will be promptly ridiculed.
