Initial Enlistment

So you've put in your application. Now what?

Firstly, if you haven't already met with a recruiter on Teamspeak / Discord then do so at your earliest convenience. They will be able to advise you further on your application status and help you correct any information that is outstanding so that you get reviewed in a timely manner.

Once reviewed, your application will either:

  • Responded to via reply to your application with a Processing image - Which means the assigned recruiter is trying to get a hold of you via Steam (Check your invites on steam)
  • Hold - Meaning recruiter flagged your application for missing or inefficient information and will list what needs to be corrected in a reply response.  
  • Denied - You do not meet the Minimum Requirement (Listed in the beginning of this post)

Responses normally contain exactly what is required from you to complete your application. Meet with a recruiter on Teamspeak / Discord to move onto your New Soldier Orientation.  

Denials can be automatic, or declared. Automatic denials are dealt with via our automated system, due to a failure to meet any entry requirements we put in place at the time such as:

  • A Steam VAC Ban
  • Underage
  • Unauthorized name provided 

Declared denials are a little different. This means a soldier such as a senior member of our Recruiting & Retention Office has reviewed your information and has decided not to accept you into the [HBS] 4th Infantry Division. This could be for many reasons, as such you should contact a recruiter if you have any concerns as to why your application was Denied.

Upon submission of your enlistment application you will gain access to our Enlistees Lounge.  Here you'll have tons more pinned posts to read to get you ready for your experience in the 4th Infantry Division. 


Your future awaits soldier!  Hope to have you among our ranks soon! Best of luck in your recruitment process!
