The Division 2 PvP LMG DPS Build

The first of the PvP builds we’re highlighting is the LMG DPS build. This leverages the high DPS of LMG weapons, and uses Talents which reduce reload time and increase stability. You’ll want to make sure you’re running with the two True Sons Gear pieces to gain the +10% damage to armor, as this will help you shred through rival players. The Sharpshooter Specialization will allow you to buff Headshot damage, so as long as you aim for the head you’ll down quickly. For the Skills, a Booster Hive is great for increasing movement speed, as you’ll always want to be moving while shooting with this build.

The Division 2 Glass Cannon Assault Rifle Build

Next up with have an assault rifle-focused build which focuses on damage above all else. It’s definitely a glass cannon build, so you’ll want to take extra care and stick in cover. You’ll want to arm yourself with mods that focus on increasing Critical Damage, and stack the Health Launcher and Defender Drone Skills to help with incoming damage.

The Division 2 One Shot Sniper PvP Build

Finally, we have the one-shot Marksman build. This build is only for those who are confident with landing headshots, preferably using a hip-fire scope. If you hit a head with this build, you will down an enemy in one. Having the Chatterbox on standby is good for any enemies that rush you, and the Booster Hive will improve your stability and movement speed. Really, you can use any marksman rifle you want with this build, as long as you run with the correct talents.

The Division 2 PvP Types

There are two different types of PvP mode to play through in The Division 2. First is the Dark Zone. In the Dark Zone, your gear is normalized. To read more about Normalized Gear and the Dark Zone, head over to our The Division 2 Dark Zone Guide. Second is the Conflict mode. This is your more traditional multiplayer fare, with teams working together to accomplish objectives. This is much more competitive, but definitely worth your time, as it will hone your combat skills.

Here's how to access Conflict Mode in The Division 2

How to Start PvP in The Division 2

To start Conflict mode in The Division 2, you’ll need to go through the following steps. Note that your Conflict progression is handled separately to Dark Zone leveling.

  • Head to map screen
  • Scroll through tabs using L1/LB
  • Select ‘Conflict’
  • From here, you can check your Conflict Progression
  • Currently, you can either play Skirmish or Domination

For a look at how to increase your Gear Score in The Division 2, head to our The Division 2 Endgame guide. This will spur you on towards earning more loot with better talents and Perks, this is a great way to start assembling your desired build.

The Division 2 On the Ropes Perk

The On the Ropes Perk is currently regarded as one of the best DPS perks in The Division 2. It increases weapon damage by 25% when both skills are on cooldown. This is a huge increase, though you will need 7 utility points to use it. While it is certainly a good pick in the game’s current meta, it could easily be nerfed in a future update, so don’t build your entire loadout around it.
