Specializations are part of the skill system in Tom Clancy's The Division 2. After the player finally reaches level 30, the player may choose a specialization on which they can focus their build. There are 3 different kinds of specializations, and each specialization unlocks a new unique signature weapon, unique skills related to the build and a unique skill mod associated with the specialization build and an exotic grenade exclusive to their class. Each specialization can be upgraded through activities, and each can be swapped out for each other as often as the player desires. The specializations skills introduced into The Division 2 are Survivalist, Demolitionist, Sharpshooter, and Gunner.
- Main article: Survivalist (Specialization)
"Desperate times ask for desperate measures."
Survivalists can control their surroundings using traps and status effects. They are equipped with a precision crossbow with explosive bolts. The unique skill mod associated with this build is the Mender Seeker Mine that releases a gas cloud around the user to heal him/her and can be used to repair allied skills and fellow agents. They also come equipped with a fragmentation grenade that deals damage and can give the target a bleed effect.
- Main article: Demolitionist (Specialization)
"Sometimes stealth is just not an option."
Demolitionists are agents of chaos, focusing on disrupting enemy plans and entrenched positions using an M32A1 Grenade Launcher as their signature weapon. The unique skill mod associated with this build is Artillery Turret which can fire mortars on selected areas. The unique grenade for the Demolitionist is the Incendiary Grenade which deals damage and applies a burning effect.
- Main article: Sharpshooter (Specialization)
"A Specialization for agents looking at taking their targets out, without them ever realizing what hit them."
Sharpshooters can change the tide of a battle from afar using the TAC-50 Sniper Rifle that can fire armor piercing .50 cal rounds as their signature weapon. The unique skill mod associated with this build is the Tactician Drone, this drone mod allows to recon a specific area and marks all hostile targets within its range. The Sharpshooter also comes with a Flashbang Grenade that will deal no damage but leaves its targets stunned and blind for a short period
- Main article: Gunner (Specialization)
"A true force to be reckoned with."
The Gunner is equipped with the powerful Minigun, which will be a force to be reckoned with on the streets of Washington, D.C. with an emphasis on sustained damage output and damage resilience. To get enemies out in the open, the Gunner comes with the Banshee Pulse, which ignores cover and causes its targets to become confused. When an enemy stumbles out of cover is the perfect opportunity for the Gunner to use their special grenade – the Riot Foam grenade – trapping the enemy in place.
