The Division 2's new specializations give players more options and agency in endgame content, with an expected six possibilities by the end of the year.
Tom Clancy's The Division 2 is the sequel to 2016's The Division. Released March 15 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Windows, The Division 2 attempts to correct some of the many issues faced by its predecessor, in particular regarding the lack of endgame content.
The three specializations added to The Division 2 can be unlocked by finishing the main campaign and reaching the max level cap of 30. Three more are expected to be released later down the year as shown in the news regarding the Year 1 Road Map for future DLC content.
The Division 2 New Specializations: Three New Specializations
The three current specializations available are the Sharpshooter, the Survivalist and the Demolitionist. They are identified primarily by their weapon of choice which is the TAC-50 C Rifle, the Explosive Tipped Crossbow and the M32A1 Multi-shot Grenade Launcher respectively.
The three upcoming specializations have been guessed to allow players to optimize into LMGs or miniguns, sub-machine guns and either shotguns or rifles.
It is as of yet unknown if there will be specializations focused more around supportive or non-standard items such as the shield or a flamethrower. Given the already-powerful Shield loadout available, it would be interesting to see if it could be built specifically into the game.
Other new content available to allow players to experiment and explore are the new Raids.
