The first leg in your end-game progression journey begins by choosing a Specialization after completing the main campaign. Specializations are a brand new character progression system that places both loadout customization and raw power in your hands as the player. After choosing a Specialization, you will gain access to a plethora of skills, mods, and talents that enhances how you play The Division 2. The most iconic feature associated with Specializations is Signature Weapons—powerful firearms that will definitely leave a mark on those standing in your way. The three Specializations available at launch are:
- The Sharpshooter – unlocks a powerful .50 caliber sniper rifle and a set of tool mods and skills tree allowing to change the tide of a firefight even from afar.
- The Demolitionist – unlocks a destructive grenade launcher along tools and skills focusing on disrupting enemy plans and entrenched positions.
- The Survivalist – unlocks a precision custom crossbow firing exploding bolts and tools and skills that leave little chance for enemies to recover after being hit.
Once you’ve chosen a Specialization, you are not locked in – you can always choose another if you want to try it out, and progress all of them individually on the same character.
With a wide range of activities available at endgame, including the challenging 8 man raids, you will need to practice your skills. Choosing a Specialization gives you the tools necessary to adapt your role to any forward-facing challenge. Equip the loadout that suits the situation best, leverage the competition, and prepare your assault!
