The Division 2 Warlords of New York New Skills

There are four new skills to try out in Warlords of New York, though they won't be activated from the start. Here's how to unlock the Sticky Bomb Variants, Shock Trap, and Decoy Skills.

Warlords of New York is a brand new expansion for The Division 2. It adds in a new level cap, a new area to play in and even four new skills. These skills are the Sticky Bomb (Explosive and Burn variants), the Shock Trap, and the Decoy. Each is definitely worth picking up, so we've put together a guide on how to get each one.

Warlords of New York New Skills List

If you've played The Division 2 before you'll know that Skills are an integral part of combat. They act as gadgets that can be activated to give you a tactical advantage over your enemies, and the majority of them really pack a punch. Warlords of New York introduces four new Skills to try. They include the following:

  • Sticky Bomb (Explosive)
  • Sticky Bomb (Burning)
  • Shock Trap
  • Decoy

Warlords of New York adds in a ton of new content. For a look at the new Exotic Weapon: Lady Death, head here.

How to Get the Sticky Bomb

There are actually two variants of the new Sticky Bomb skill. The first of these is the explosive, which essentially sticks a conventional bomb to enemies. There's also burning, which will continuously burn enemies within a certain radius. Both can be detonated, causing explosive damage. To get burning Sticky Bombs, you'll need to take out Vivian Conley, the leader of The Cleaners. For the explosive Sticky Bomb you'll need to kill James Dragov. Both of these missions can be easily accessed from the map.

How to Get the Decoy Skill

To get the Decoy Skill in The Division 2 Warlords of New York, you'll want to kill Theo Parnell. He's a tricky fight, deploying multiple decoys of himself to distract you. Kill him and you'll get the Decoy skill. For fights like these you'll want to make sure you have the best gear equipped. Here's our look on the new gear score system.

How to Get the Shock Trap

To get the Shock Trap skill in The Division 2 you'll need to kill Javier Kajika. You can locate him using the map. Once you've killed him, he'll drop the Shock Trap skill.

What is the Best New Skill?

In our time with Warlords of New York, we've managed to try out all four of the new skills. Honestly, none of them are particularly spectacular, though for our money the Shock Trap is the best of the four. It can be used to hold large groups of enemies in place, and can be particularly useful against charging bosses.

That's all we've got on the new skills. For more on Warlords of New York, be sure to check out Mike's preview. If you're looking for our review of the base game, head here.
