The Division 2 Talents Guide – All Weapon and Armor Talents

Both Weapon Talents and Armor Talents have been reintroduced in Division 2. These work in a similar way they did before with slight changes. Here is everything you need to know about them.

The Division 2 Talents

Each weapon or armor comes with a predefined set of Talents; you have to reach a certain threshold in order to unlock them.

They can be unlocked the kind of the same way they did in Division 1 where you had to increase enough of the 3 core player stats i.e. Firearms, Stamina, and Electronics. However, in the new game the method has become somewhat complicated.

In Division 2, the name of the 3 main player stats has been changed to Offense, Defense, and Skills respectively.

These can be increased by equipping gear. Each piece of gear might give you some number of attributes and for each set you wear they stack up.

For example, if you are wearing a mask that gives you 1 Defense and 1 Offense and a vest that gives you 1 Offense and 1 Skill, your overall attributes will be 1 Defense, 2 Offense and 1 Skill.

These are represented by the symbols with a number in the inventory around your level.

Moving on, where these come in handy is, in your inventory when you click on a weapon or a gear, look on the right tab, scroll down and you will be able to see the Talents with the requirements.

The requirements are basically the amount of Defense, Offense or Skill attributes a player must acquire before he can unlock the Talent for the gun.

Also, keep in mind that, some Talents do not have any requirements at all. We have listed below, the Talents available in Division 2 Beta; however, there may be more in the real game.
