The Gunner Specialization Dropping Into The Division 2 Later This Month, Debuts On PTS Tomorrow
A new The Division 2 Specialist will be dropping into post-apocalyptic Washington D.C. with the upcoming Title Update 4 – the Gunner. The Minigun-toting Gunner will have enemies running for the nearest cover with their “sustained damage output and damage resilience.” Flushing them back out into the open won’t be a problem using the Gunner’s Signature Skill.
“The Gunner receive bonus armour based on the amount of Specialization ammunition they are carrying and can easily tank incoming damage for short periods of time while using their Minigun to suppress their enemies. There's a catch though – when the weapon is drawn, the Gunner can't enter cover, vault or roll.
To get enemies out in the open, the Gunner comes with the Banshee Signature Skill, which ignores cover and causes its targets to become confused. When an enemy stumble out of cover is the perfect opportunity for the Gunner to use their special grenade – the Riot Foam grenade – trapping the enemy in place.”
The Gunner will automatically be unlocked for Year 1 Pass players while the rest of the playerbase will be required to complete all five challenging stages of the Special Field Research to unlock the specialization, along with exclusive cosmetic rewards including new emotes, gear dyes, weapon skins, and the Gunner mask and uniform. Completing Special Field Research will also reward players with the newest SHD signature weapon.
The new Specialization will be available on the PTS starting tomorrow, June 4th, and will be hit the live servers later in the month. Head over to The Division 2 official site for more info.
