What is the Max Gear Score in Warlords of New York?
Since the introduction of the Warlords of New York expansion, the new maximum Gear Score in The Division 2 is 515. This is 15 more than is possible in the base D.C. game, so there's plenty to work toward as you play.
How to Get 515 Gear Score Items
You'll need to have purchased the Warlords of New York expansion for The Division 2 in order to access the 515 gear. If you head back to D.C. your new gear will be scaled down, as the max for that area is still 500. You'll earn 515 Gear Score loot by completing missions, from random drops and by opening caches. You cannot give your 515 Gear Score to those without the Warlords of New York Expansion as they will not be a high enough level to use it.
That's everything you need to know on the new Gear Score requirements in The Division 2. For more on the game be sure to check out Mike's preview on Warlords of New York. You can also head over to our review of the base game.
