The Division 2 Skill Power - How to Increase Skill Power and Use Skill Mods

You may have equipment that you need a certain Skill Power rating to equip. Here’s everything you need to know about Skill Power.

As you progress further into The Division 2, you’ll need to start modding your equipment. This includes your skills, which require a special rating requirement to alter. This rating is called Skill Power, and its value determines the power of the mods that can be applied to your gadgets. The game doesn’t do a great job at explaining this, but luckily for you we’ve been busy building this The Division 2 Skill Power Guide. We’ll explain what Skill Power is, and then give you some info on how to increase Skill Power.

The Division 2 Skill Power

You’ll probably start to craft and receive skill mods at around level 11 in The Division 2. These mods allow you to increase the effectiveness of your skills, obviously a hugely important thing to do as the difficulty starts to ramp up. Problem is, you’ll need a certain Skill Power rating to equip skill mods, with rarer mods requiring a higher Skill Power. Let’s take a look at how to increase it.

How to Check Your Skill Power

Before we take a look at increasing your Skill Power, you may not know how to check your current level. Well, all you need to do is open up the character menu, and look for the info on the left hand side. You’ll see Skill Power listed underneath health.

How to Increase Skill Power in The Division 2

To increase your Skill Power, you need to equip items which boost it. These are usually blue or rarer, and you’ll see whether or not each piece of gear has an effect on your Skill Power. There’s no hard and fast way to pick up Skill Power specific gear, but keep an eye out at Shops and the Crafting station for anything you can use.

How to Equip Skill Mods

Once you’ve reached the requirement Skill Power, you can start equipping Skill Mods. To do so, hover over the skill you want to mod in the Character Menu, then hold square/X. This will bring you to the modding page, which works in exactly the same way as with weapons and gear
