In Tom Clancy's The Division, skills are divided up into three groups; Medical, Tech, and Security. Players are able to choose what skills they wish to focus on or specialize in. These skills are active abilities used by the player which then recharge before the player can use them again. There are 2 slots for skills and 1 slot for signature skill. Signature Skills are powerful tools to change the momentum of combat. Use them wisely, as they take a long time to recharge after use.

Medical Skills

Medical skills provide support and Intel for the agent and their team.

Tech Skills

Tech skills give agents an offensive edge.

Security Skills

Security skills are focused on defensive capabilities.

Skills have 3 different mods that can be chosen and once a Wing is fully upgraded all skills in that wing then unlock their Mastery Perk which will be activated alongside the mod chosen. For example, the Turret skill can be modded to have a Pulse attached to it (Active Scanner mod) or it can be modded as a flamethrower with the Dragonbreath mod. So each skill can be very unique based on the upgrades the players want to pick. Signature Skills, on the other hand, are already very powerful and thus do not have any mods or masteries associated with them

Skills are closely tied with Talents and Perks, and they can work well together if the right ones are picked. Make sure that you optimize your Talents and Skills to be the most effective for your goal.

    • How many skills can a player have available at one time? Three? Two and a signature? 
    • That is correct. Each regular skill can be modded as well.

    • When a skill reaches the Master level, does that skill gain the Master ability in addition to the mod or is the Master level another mod in itself?
    • The master is seperate. You can have a mod equipped on a skill as well as the master.
