The Division 2 Specializations skill tree guide The Division 2 Specializations skill tree guide
Let's take a look at each Specialization, the skills available, and requirements need for ammo drops. The Division 2 Specializations skill tree guide

The Division 2 stands to be one of the year’s biggest games, offering open-world multiplayer action on a scale not yet seen in gaming. Set amongst the backdrop of a Washington D.C. ravaged by conflict, you’ll work your way up 30 levels before eventually reaching the game’s endgame, and unlocking the three Specializations and their skill trees, which we’ll break down in this guide.

With each of the three Specializations you’ll have access to a unique “signature” primary weapon, grenade and skill mods, a primary weapon attachment, a tactical link for group buffs, armor kits, weapon bonuses, and 2 Signature Weapon ammo talents for your party.

Each skill tree can have up to 160 points allocated for unlocking specific traits, and you’ll need to battle it out against the Black Tusk faction — the faction that takes over the map in the endgame — to earn these points.

Let’s take a look at each Specialization, the skills available, and requirements need for ammo drops.
