When you’re running around the post-apocalyptic streets of The Division 2’s Washington D.C., do you ever find yourself feeling as if you’re not doing enough carnage and mayhem with your portable arsenal? Then you might be a prime target for the game’s newest specialization, the Gunner.
Coming in a June update, the Gunner entrusts a minigun to players with the admonition to use it sparsely and wisely. Ha ha, just kidding, shoot everything that’s moving and everything else besides. You’ll have to jump through some serious hoops to get the Gunner, however, as five stages of in-game challenges are required.
“With an emphasis on sustained damage output and damage resilience, the Gunner will serve as the vanguard of SHD Agents in the ongoing fight to reclaim the city,” Ubisoft said. “When activated, 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.”
Players can check the Gunner out on the public test server today.
