How to Dodge Roll in The Division 2

The Division 2 is a cover-based shooter. As such, you’ll be spending most of your time moving between cover, and flanking your enemies. And while running to your next position is all well and good, you’ll be leaving yourself open to gunfire and damage. One way to avoid gunfire while running is to dodge. Doing so is pretty simple, in that you just need to double tap X/A. This will allow you to evade incoming fire, and make the last ditch towards your next piece of cover.

When to Use the Dodge Roll in The Division 2

Now that you know how to pull it off, when should you be using the dodge roll. Well, the main way to use it is to back away from charging enemies. You can also use it to get into cover faster. If you dodge roll just before a sniper fires off their shot, it’s likely to miss.

So there you have it, that’s how you dodge roll in The Division 2. For more on The Division 2, why not check out our Character Customization Guide.
