The Division 2 Recalibration
Recalibration is a useful tool in The Division 2, allowing you to take stats from one piece of Gear and transfer them to another piece. It works a little differently than in the first game, as the dice-roll probability mechanic has been removed completely. Let’s take a look at how Recalibration works in The Division 2.
How to Unlock Recalibration in The Division 2
In order to unlock Recalibration in The Division 2, you’ll need to recruit a staff member called Emma Richards. She can be found at The Campus, though you’ll need to get The Campus to level 3 in order to sway her. To do so, complete three main missions at The Campus. Afterwards, head into The Campus Settlements and speak to Emma. She will then move to The White House and set up a Recalibration Station next to the Crafting area to the left of the main entrance.
Which Stats Can be Transferred?
So, once you’ve unlocked the Recalibration Station and welcomed Emma Richards back to your Base of Operations, what can you transfer over. Well, if you select a piece of gear that you’d like to transfer to, you’ll see the options listed. There are three types of main stats for a Gear piece: red, blue, and green. You can only swap a red stat for another red, a blue for a blue, and so on. When transferring a stat, you’ll also be given a maximum value that can be applied. This will be determined by your Gear Score and is used to stop you overpowering World Tier 4 Gear.
The Division 2: Recalibrating Weapons
You can also Recalibrate weapons in The Division 2, though there are some important restrictions. Namely, you can only transfer stats between the same type of weapon. For example, some stats are specific to rifles, and cannot be applied to marksman rifles. Keep this in mind when selecting which weapons you want to buff.
Recalibration Increases Gear Score
Recalibration is a good way to increase the Gear Score of the Gear that you own. It’s possible to end up with Gear with Gear Score of 460 using this, as the game assesses all of the stats you have on each piece. Using this method is very useful for reaching a Gear Score of 450, and is likely why those with specific builds tend to have no trouble achieving the max rating of 450.
The Division 2 Recalibration Cost
The cost for Recalibrating Gear is dependant on a number of different things. Firstly, it will be scaled up for your level/Gear Score, meaning that the stronger you are, the pricier the Recalibration. Secondly, the cost will reflect the specific stat you are moving across. Generally, Recalibration will cost you credits, electronics and Polymer.
Recalibrating Talents in The Division 2
It is possible to Recalibrate talents from one weapon to another as well. As before though, you can only move these between the same weapon type.
The Gear You Are Transferring From Will be Destroyed
An important thing to note is that when moving stats from one Gear Piece to another, the item that you are taking from will be destroyed. Be careful then, that you have weighed up the benefits of Recalibrating a certain piece of Gear, as it is often more useful to save stats that you like until you reach the game’s higher levels.
