What Skill To Pick First In The Division 2

Pulse
The pulse acts as a scanner. It highlights enemies on your HUD

Turret
Self explanatory. You place a turret that automatically targets and shoots at hostiles.

Hive
Works similar to a land mine. If you can lure an enemy close, it launches multiple projectiles.

Chem Launcher
The first level of the Chem Launcher launches a small cloud of healing gas that heals both health and armor.

Firefly
The Firefly is an automatically controlled Drone that blinds enemies.

Seeker Mine
The Seeker mine is a small drone you drop on the floor. It automatically tracks hostiles and explodes when in close proximity.

Drone
The Striker drone automatically tracks targets and fires on hostiles. High rate of fire, low rate of damage.

Shield
You can block enemy fire as you walk around using a shield. You can only use sidearms while the shield is equipped.

There is no right or wrong choice with What Skill To Pick First In The Division 2. Pick whatever compliments your play style, and choose based on your allies abilities, if you’re playing with friends. For example, Johnny was using a shotgun so I went with the Chem Launcher to heal him as he got up close with enemies.
