The Division 2 has been live for a long time, and the best builds are beginning to show up. A few fellas were rounded up over at Arekkz gaming and tasked to perform a couple of different playstyles.
The Division 2’s raid, Operation Dark Hours, is almost in the air, and you probably want to know what’s the best raid build as well.
The best builds The Division 2 can offer
Before you start to dive into all the details, you should lift your Gear Score as high as you can. This is how you get ready for the raid and equipped to fight the baddest rivals the game will deliver.
You will reach the highest Gear Score, farming the Occupied Dark Zone endlessly for top quality loot, as well as rare one. As you can see in the video, the best tactic is to repeat Landmarks in the Occupied Dark Zone, thus your chances at getting top tier loot will increase.
While farming in that way, do effort to provide with equipment your top Gear Score items, this is how you get the best chance for top loot to drop.
When you’ve decently raised at level 500, it’s time for min-maxing of your build.
You can make your gear even better and brand sets past the soft cap of 500, using the Recalibration Station, so keep rerolling your best stuff until it’s the bestest.
2 million damage Marksman SVD build
This PvE build happens to cause a huge damage to elites, the Division 2’s toughest enemies will lie down.
The main weapon in this build is a Paratrooper SVD with the Talents, Accurate, Ranger, and Stop, Drop, and Roll. Ranger causes an extra 2% damage for each 5 meters you are away from a target, the Accurate is a basic 15% buff to accuracy, and Stop, Drop, and Roll removes a status effect from your char if you roll once every 60 seconds.
Speaking of mods, use the EXPS3 Holo Sight for +8% damage to Elites, the Study Marksman Mag, a Vertical Grip, and a Flash Hider 7.62.
In the slot #2, apply an exotic weapon adding the Holster Talent “Brutality”, like Ruthless. This will give your shots a 5% chance to tear down an extra 20% of damage as explosive damage.
Use the Sharpshooter Specialization with the One in the Head skill at tier 5, or use the Demolitionist Specialization because of the explosive damage buffs.
For your gear, you want to roll for the offensive attribute “Damage to Elites”, “Weapon Damage”, and Marksman Rifle damage. The Talents you want to try for are “Hard Hitting”, which deals a further 15% extra damage to Elites, and “Devastating” which grants an extra 5% weapon damage.
The brand sets bonuses to look out for are 3/3 Airaldi Holdings for +10% Accuracy, Headshot Damage, and Marksman Rifle Damage, one Douglas and Harding for the Accuracy, and one Wyvern Wear for Critical Damage.
5 Million Damage sniper build
You probably can think 2 million was high enough, but wait, we have even more powerful build out there that causes more sacrifices but really makes the punishment bigger.
At first, use the Sharpshooter Specialization with the same perks as above.
For gear use one Murakami Industries piece for a small health buff, but with a high Damage to Elites offensive attribute and Hard Hitting Talent.
Then apply a Fenris Chestpiece: it can have both an active and passive Talent – this has Hard Hitting and Unstoppable Force, which will grant extra weapon damage after killing an enemy based on your max armour.
To make the most of this use a set of Gila Guard Kneepads with the Hard Hitting Talent for the 5% buff to total armour.
The rest of the build is made up of three Airaldi Holdings pieces with the Talents Hard Hitting and Devastating. Look out for Marksman damage and weapon damage attributes on these items.
