Ubisoft has just announced that The Division 2 will be getting a new specialisation in its latest patch, Title Update 4.
The Division 2’s newest update adds an extra specialisation to the game, the ‘Gunner’, as well as a new Riot Foam Grenade, P320 Compact Pistol, and the Banshee Pulse Skill Mod.
The ‘Gunner’ wields the Minigun, has Riot Foam as its special grenade, and gets an exclusive Pulse Variant to the Banshee skill. The Minigun offers short but massive bursts of damage and an armour bonus, but its drawbacks are that you cannot fire it behind cover and when drawn it disables roll and sprint.
How to Unlock the ‘Gunner’ Specialisation
To gain access to the new ‘Gunner’ specialisation players will need to undertake something called Special Field Research, five stages of in-game challenges, completing them all. Each challenge will have its own objectives and rewards.
Those with the Division 2 Year 1 Pass will instantly unlock the new specialisation. They will also be able to complete the Special Field Research challenges, receiving additional exclusive cosmetic rewards; such as emotes, dyes, skins and clothing.
