Tom Clancy's The Division 2 (2019)

Tom Clancy's The Division 2 is a MMOTPS for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One, developed by Ubisoft Massive that takes place in Washington, D.C. in the aftermath of further pandemic-fueled chaos. It is powered by the same "Snowdrop" engine from first game. Among the improvements made from the first game is that weapons can now track +1 in the chamber, along with a new selection of weapons and streamlined customization and combat system, among other things.

The game's setting is 7 months after the initial Green Poison outbreak. The virus has largely burnt itself out and is no longer the threat it used to be in the previous game, however the bigger threat are the people continuing to take advantage of the chaos. The player controls an agent of the Strategic Homeland Division (or simply known as "The Division"), a top secret government sleeper cell that is "activated" personally by the President to ensure the continuity of government in the face of a catastrophic national crisis, and a answers a distress call asking for agents to be rally to Washington D.C due to the collapse of the SHD network. After arriving at the United States' capital, the player must secure the White House (which has become the JTF's last stronghold in the region), assist the civilian settlements in the city, re-establish the SHD network to restore the Division to full functionality across America, and retake D.C from the various factions vying for control, power, or simply taking advantage of the chaos.

Said factions are: The True Sons, a highly-disciplined group made up of disgruntled JTF, US Armed Forces, and other paramilitary irregulars, out to "save" D.C. as they deem the JTF incapable of doing so. The Hyenas, a collection of gangs and anarchists out to steal any valuable resources they can and destroy the rest for their amusement. The Outcasts, survivors of the Roosevelt Island quarantine out to exact vegeance for their supposed abuse, neglect, and maltreatment by the JTF. The Black Tusks, a mysterious and cutting-edge Private Military Corporation, who is secretly furthering the unrest in DC for their own agendas by supplying other factions with weapons, taking territory, and antagonizing the JTF. The Hunters, a secretive group of highly-advanced military operatives specifically hunting Division agents with extreme prejudice, introduced in the first game. The last are fellow Division agents, who may go rogue on each other in the "Dark Zones" for their own gain, due to the lack of surveillance in the area.

As of the new "Warlords of New York" expansion, the Cleaners and Rikers from the first game have returned with a vengeance, along with Aaron Keener and his posse of elite rogue Division agents.

The following weapons appear in the video game The Division 2:



As of the moment, revolver-style handguns are affected by a bug, where if the gun has a skill that increases magazine capacity, it will result in an additional round being loaded in the cylinder, giving it a 7-round capacity.

Beretta M9

The Beretta M9 is the starting sidearm in the game. It appears under the name "Military M9".

The weapon is commonly used by civilian militia. It is also briefly used by General Ridgeway to execute an "insubordinate" doctor, in a cinematic.

Beretta M9A1

The Beretta M9A1 returns as the "Officer's M9A1". Unlike it's previous incarnation, the weapon is able to accept a slide-mounted reflex sight, a laser sight, along with an extended magazine. It also has wooden grips installed, rather than the black polymer grip that originally comes with a military-issue M9A1.

The weapon is used by True Sons heavy gunners, who will switch to it if their ammo boxes are destroyed.

Beretta 93R

The Beretta 93R returns as the only usable machine pistol of the game. The weapon fires in 3-round bursts, but can be fired in pseudo-automatic by timing the bursts with firing.

The weapon is used by lower-level Hyena RC operators and the sidearm of Black Tusk snipers.

Beretta Px4 Storm

The Beretta Px4 Storm appears in game as the "Px4 Storm Type F" and the "Px4 Storm Type T". The Type F variant is a Px4 chambered for 9mm rounds, while the Type T varant is chambered for .45 caliber rounds.

The Type F variant is used by lower-level Hyena grenadiers.

CZ 75

While not usable in-game, CZ 75 handguns with wooden grips can be occasionally found in static weapon piles around DC.

Chiappa Rhino

The Chiappa Rhino returns in The Division 2, although now under the name "Diceros" (The scientific name for the rhinoceros). The 20DS is known as the "Snubnosed Diceros", the 40DS is known simply as the "Diceros" and the 60DS version is the "Diceros Special". The Diceros special is only available as a custom weapon of the Demolitions specialization, which can be unlocked by investing points in the appropriate skill.

In the beta of the game, it was possible to have erroneously an extra round in the chamber for it, boosting the capacity to 6+1 bullets. This error is partially fixed in the final version of the game.

The snubnosed version is used by Hyena shield carriers.

Colt M1911A1

The classic M1911A1 returns as a usable pistol. It is generally passed over due to it's inability to mount a frame and slide-mounted attachment, and low magazine capacity.

The weapon is used by civilian militia, along with lower-level Outcast grenadiers and True Sons medics.

Colt M45A1 CQBP

The Colt M45A1 CQBP returns as the "M45A1", and is fitted with a threaded barrel. A variant with a silver finish and black grips, known as the "Tactical M1911", is also available; thanks to their rails and barrel threading, both are capable of accepting a variety of attachments.

The weapon is used by True Sons anti-tank troops. Several enemies with pistol holsters also have low-detail silver M45A1s inside, although they are never used.

Desert Eagle Mark XIX

A new usable pistol in the game is the Desert Eagle Mark XIX. Has an 8-round capacity. Like in many other Ubisoft games, it goes by the "D50" name. In-game text and it's 8-round magazine specifies its the .44 magnum version, but it lacks the fluted barrel that's a defining characteristic of the .44 model.

A unique variant called "Liberty", which was previously owned by General Ridgeway of the True Sons, can be crafted by obtaining the necessary parts. The weapon features a custom reflex sight, a compensator-style cut near the muzzle of the barrel, and unique True Sons aesthetic. The weapon has unique mechanics when dispatching enemy weakpoints and electronic skill proxies.

The slide has the words "Libertatem Aut Mortem" written on it, which would roughly translate to "Give me Liberty or Give me Death" in English, a famous quote by Virginian governor Patrick Henry. It also has dogtags of fallen True Sons soldiers tied around the grip and behind the trigger, which would probably block the path of the trigger pull and make the pistol into an oversized paper weight. Given how far mounted forward it is, the reflex sight also looks like it would probably get blown off by muzzle blast out of those compensator cuts.


The FNP-45 appears as the "X-45". The Tactical version appears as the "Tactical X-45".

The standard X-45 is sometimes used by civilian militia.

SIG-Sauer P320 Compact

The SIG-Sauer P320 Compact was introduced during the release of the Gunner specialization, as the class' exclusive sidearm. It is simply called the "P320" and can be unlocked investing in the appropriate skill in the Gunner's skill tree. Unlike other weapons, the P320 cannot be obtained from world drops.

Smith & Wesson M&P45

The Smith & Wesson M&P45 returns as the "First Wave PF45". A customized version with a threaded barrel, extended rear sight, and extended-basepad magazine is called the "Custom PF45".

The First Wave variant is used by Outcast gunners, who will switch to it if their machine gun's ammo bandolier is destroyed.

Smith & Wesson Model 586

The Smith & Wesson Model 586 with a 4 inch barrel returns as the Magnum 586. Unlike in the previous game, it can now be customized with a short-rail sight and it's cylinder can be modded.

The weapon is used by Outcast flame units, who will switch to the weapon if their flamethrower's fuel tank is destroyed.

SilencerCo Maxim 9

The SilencerCo Maxim 9 was introduced along with the "Technician" class as their exclusive sidearm. It cannot be procured from world drops and can only be obtained by investing the appropriate talent points in the Technician tree. This also means that it can only be used while using the technician specialization.

CMMG MkGs Banshee 300

One of the new weapons introduced in the new Warlords of New York expansion is the CMMG MkGs Banshee 300 sub-machine gun with a titanium finish. In-game, the weapon's name is shortened to "CMMG Banshee". A named version of the weapon, known as "The Grudge", is the personal weapon of original First Wave Rogue Agent and egotistical sociopath Aaron Keener.

FN P90

The FN P90 now appears in the sequel as a usable weapon. The game erroneously classifies it as a 5.56mm weapon, although this was likely for streamlining concerns to avoid complicating the modification pool. Additionally, the weapon treats the built-in reflex as a removable attachment, as if its a hybrid of the standard P90 and the newer P90 TR. This results in the default optical sight group clipping through larger sights when they are attached.

An exotic version called "The Chatterbox", is an exotic-tier Hyena weapon. It comes equipped with a haphazardly-applied green paintjob, a EOTech 553 holographic sight (that is no longer usable due to the view supposedly resembling a kaleidoscope), sound suppressor, a custom side clamp for an extra magazine and through the power of either skill or idiocy: the Hyenas managed to expand the magazine to 60 rounds. The gun has special mechanics related to increasing rate of fire. Unlike the base model, the Chatterbox is based on the P90 Triple Rail variant.

The weapon is used by veteran and elite Rikers squad leaders. Additionally, like in TD1, it appears that the P90 is still the basis for agent-deployed sentry guns, although its been further stripped down.

Heckler & Koch MP5A4

The Heckler & Koch MP5A4 appears as the MP5A2. Unlike in the previous game, it now fires at full-auto, rather than burst.

The weapon is used by regular True Sons grenadiers and civilian militia. Higher-level Outcast and Rikers grenadiers also make use the MP5A4.

Heckler & Koch MP5A5

The Heckler & Koch MP5A5 appears incorrectly as the "MP5-N" (which refers to a variant with a Navy three-position trigger group, the in-game weapon having the four-position trigger group) and has a 32-round magazine. The weapon uses an M4-style railed handguard, rather than the tropical forearm that it originally comes in with. Another returning variant is the "MP5 ST", which is an MP5-N customized by the Tactical Supply Company.

The "MP5-N" is used by True Sons medics. The "MP5 ST" variant is used by Black Tusk medics.

Heckler & Koch MP7A2

The Heckler & Koch MP7A2 appears as the "MP7"'. Unlike the previous game, the weapon is now modeled with a 40-round magazine and programmed with the correct magazine capacity. Much like the P90, it is erroneously classified as a 5.56mm weapon, although this was done likely for standardizing it for the mod system.

The weapon is used by higher-level Outcast support soldiers. Additionally, higher-level Cleaner grenadiers are also armed with MP7s, much like in the first game.

Heckler & Koch UMP45

The Heckler & Koch UMP45 returns as the “Police UMP-45”. A UMP with a Magpul telescoping stock and light green finish appears as the "Tactical UMP-45".

The police variant is used by regular Hyena soldiers. President Ellis later steals a UMP45 off an unwitting soldier during the Division's attempt in rescuing him. Tactical UMP45s are sometimes used by Rogue Division agents.

Heckler & Koch USC

The Heckler & Koch USC appears as the "USC .45 ACP"; being correctly semi-auto only, it is classified in-game as a rifle (unlike its prior incarnation, which erroneously fired in full-auto). As in the previous game, it incorrectly holds 20+1 rounds in a 10-round magazine.

Intratec TEC-9

Both the Intratec TEC-9 and TEC-9 Mini return in TD2, and are still closed-bolt semi-auto only firearms illegally (whatever meaning that has when Washington D.C. is controlled by a mutiny) converted to fire on full auto. Unlike the previous game, the full-sized TEC-9 now has a plethora of rails on it's barrel shroud and receiver: giving it a wider array of customization. The standard version is called the "Converted SMG-9 A2" while the mini variant is called the "Converted SMG-9".

The mini variant is used by higher-level Hyena shields. The standard variant is used by veteran and elite Rikers scouts, who in true gangster fashion: brandish two of them when attacking.

M1928 Thompson

The M1928 Thompson returns from the previous game, but now appears as a non-exotic weapon and is simply called the "M1928". The M1928 with a mounted 50-round drum magazine is simply called the "Tommy Gun".

The standard M1928's magazine can be modified and have an option to be extended, where its standard magazine would be replaced with a 50-round .45ACP Glock magazine. This leads to a somewhat humorous sight where the extended mag has no way to be properly seated and the lack of a magazine well shows the mag being suspended by the lips as it feeds the weapon.

The "Tommy Gun" variant is the unconventional weapon of choice of Cleaner drone operators.

Preview of an M1928 with the extended 50-round Glock magazine (that only grants it 40 rounds). There is no way this would ever work without heavily re-working the gun to accept modern aftermarket magazines (and by then it would prevent it from using it's old ones, which you can do here at will), but luckily we can avoid all that through the power of video game magic. Also the magazine is quite possibly only staying attached through magic.
Preview of the "Tommy Gun". Considering how the magazine is the only difference between this version and the one above, it's not entirely clear why the drum magazine wasn't simply made into the M1928's extended mag upgrade.

PP-19 Bizon-2

Both versions of the PP-19 Bizon-2 return from the first game unchanged. It loads from 53-round magazines, with one in the chamber for a maximum of 54 rounds.

The standard variant is used by lower-level Hyena medics. As of the new expansion, the Enhanced version is used by elite Cleaner engineers, and is the preferred SMG of rogue Division agents under Jupiter.

Like most exotic weapons of the original game, the SIG-Sauer MPX - known as "The House" previously - returns now as a standard weapon. SHD Agent Kelso briefly made use of an MPX while defending Odessa Sawyer, a retired SHD agent, against the Hyenas after being maimed by a sniper as seen in an ECHO reconstruction, although never uses the weapon in-game.

In later updates, the MPX is used by Black Tusk squad leaders.

SOCIMI Type 821

The SOCIMI Type 821 returns as the T821. It still has the same two variants: the "Police" and "Black Market" versions, although the only real difference is that the Police variant has a side-folding stock, while the Black Market version has none.

The weapon is used extensively by the civilian militia, lower-level Outcast supports, and higher-level Hyena medics. Low-level Rikers scouts are also armed with two Black Market T821s.

The Steyr AUG SMG and it's 3 variants from the previous games return here aswell. The three variants are the "AUG A3 Para XS", "Enhanced AUG A3P" and the " "Tactical AUG A3P"". The A3 Para XS is a hybrid of the A2 and A3 models, using the A2's flat-top reciever with the A3's underside rail rather than built-in grip and has a black finish. The Enhanced A3P uses the AUG A3 CQC's handguard and has a dark earth finish. The Tactical A3P is based on the actual AUG A3 XS, with an olive green finish.

The A3 Para XS is used by higher-level Hyena grenadiers, the Tactical A3P is used by higher-level True Sons grenadiers and standard Black Tusk medics, while the Enhanced A3P is used by higher-level Black Tusk UAV operators.

TDI Vector

The TDI Vector appears in game with 3 different variations. The "9mm Tactical Vector" appears as the SDP stockless version, the "9mm SBR Vector" with the standard folding stock (which is an odd designation since the SBR refers to a civilian model restricted to semi-auto), and finally a variant equipped with an M4-style collapsible stock, custom extended barrel, and aftermarket rail extension, called the "Vector SBR .45 ACP".

The Tactical variant is used by higher-level Hyena RC operators, who took a book out of the rioters from the previous game and fire the gun "gangster style". The SBR variant is used by standard Black Tusk UAV drone operators.

Assault Rifles/Battle Rifles

Unlike the previous game, The Division 2 separates rifles into 3 separate categories. The first is "Assault Rifle", which are fully automatic. The second is simply named "Rifle", which are relegated to either single shots or burst. The last is "Sniper Rifles", which are covered in the sniper rifles section.

AAC Honey Badger

The AAC Honey Badger makes an appearance. The variant used in the game is the rifle model with a 16-inch barrel and strangely uses 5.56x45mm rounds instead of it's proprietary .300 AAC BLK rounds(or 7.62mm in the game's mod system). The weapon comes in with an integral silencer that cannot be removed.

The American Defense Manufacturing Universal Improved Carbine MOD2 makes an appearance as a semi-auto rifle, where it is simply called the "UIC15 MOD2". Whether intentional or due to a bug, the gun is incredibly underpowered compared to it's competition, sporting average damage and a low RoF of 240.

ADM UIC MOD2 - 5.56x45mm


The AKM returns from the prequel, this time with a correct name, yet still modeled with the front sight and gas block of an AK-47. Due to the lack of a threaded barrel and presence of the slanted muzzle brake: it cannot use barrel attachments. A heavily modified version called the "Black Market AKM" is also available, where in addition to all the aftermarket plastic parts: it can now use barrel attachments.

A unique, exotic version called "Merciless" is also available, where it sports a custom dot sight, suppressor modeled after a Wolverine PBS-1 from Dead Air Armaments, a home-made vertical grip, and copious amounts of dirty bandages for the Hyena aesthetic. Uniquely, the weapon is classified as a rifle and possess a unique firing mechanic. The weapon shoots in two round bursts, but landing both shots on a single target will deal additional explosive damage.

As a pre-order bonus for the Ultimate edition, the weapon is also available as "Ruthless" where it sports a custom long barrel and polymer side-folding stock instead, although it is functionally identical to the to the Mericless albeit being instantly available at LV1.

The stock AKM is used by the JTF, civilian militia, and Outcast riflemen. The Cleaners are one again seen using stock AKMs with DIYed underbarrel flame throwers attached. The "Black Market" variant is sometimes used by Rogue Division agents.

Returning from the previous game, a customized AK-74 misidentified as an AKM, re-appears as the "Tactical AKM". The weapon features an aftermarket handguard and plum plastic purniture. It's also missing the proprietary muzzle brake of the AK-74 and incorrectly modeled with the AKM's gas block.

Bracebuilt MC7

The Bracebuilt Modern Carbine 7 was introduced during the Coney Island update. Despite being a 7.62mm weapon and clearly loaded with a .308 magazine, the weapon is incorrectly listed as using 5.56x45mm rounds (although there is an MC variant that shoots this caliber, which is the MC6). It is also depicted as firing in full-auto like a traditional assault rifle, despite the real MC7 only being locked to semi-auto. In game, the gun's name is shortened to simply "Carbine 7".

The weapon is used by lower-level Rikers riflemen. The weapon is also used by Rogue Division agent and Cleaners commander: Vivian Conley.

Colt M4A1

The M4A1 also makes an appearance in the sequel. The stock version is known as the "Police M4", with a variety of rails to allow for extra attachments.

The "Lightweight M4" is a semi-auto only variant that features a Troy VTAC Alpha handguard, Magpul MBUS flip up sights, and a LMT SOPMOD stock. It was originally named the " Competition LAR-15" in earlier betas, but its not related to the Rock River Arms LAR-15, apart from the name and the fact its restricted to semi-auto (where it appears Ubisoft was trying to imply this was a civilian AR-15 to explain the semi-auto only restriction).

The police variant is used by regular True Sons riflemen and their "immobilizer" troops (where they have a custom underbarrel attachment that sprays riot foam over an area), the JTF, and civilian militia. According to in-game ECHO Reconstructions (Evidence Correlation Holographic Overlay), M4A1s were also the primary weapon of JTF troops before the breakdown of Washington DC.

Colt M16A2

The M16A2 is classified as a rifle and is depicted with a correct 3-round burst fire mode. For some reason, the top rail is considered short (despite being the same length as the Police M4A1's) which prevents it from using a good number of magnified scopes, and lacks rails on the handguard, severely limiting the attachments available for this weapon. A recent buff has made the M16A2 a bit more viable. Each shot now does about the same amount of damage as any 5.56x45mm rifle-type weapon, making it excel at burst DPS compared to other rifles.

The CTAR-21 with an integral top-rail appears as one of the newest assault rifles added in The Division 2.

The weapon posses an RoF of 900RPM and can be customized to a decent degree, which makes it one of the more popular assault rifles in the game.

Desert Tech Micro Dynamic Rifle

The Desert Tech Micro Dynamic Rifle appears in The Division 2 as the "Urban MDR". It is a non-exotic, semi automatic rifle with a 20+1-round capacity.

Desert Tech Micro Dynamic Rifle - 7.62x51mm NATO. This is a pre-production select-fire model with 3D printed furnishings first shown in 2014: the current version has charging handles on both sides rather than a single reversible one, a flat-faced trigger, and a redesigned ejection port which is less raised and has a dust cover.
Stock MDR. Protip: Don't examine your new loot in the Dark Zone, it's not gonna end well with the reduced time to kill and DZ normalization. Note that it erroneously is loaded with an M14/M1A magazine.

DSA SA58 Para Tactical Carbine

The DSA SA58 Para Tactical Carbine appears in the game as the "FAL SA-58". Much like the FAL, in this game it now fires on full-auto, rather than burst, and is incorrectly classed as an assault rifle.

The weapon is used by higher-level Outcast riflemen and civilian militia.

FAMAS Valorisé

The FAMAS Valorisé returns as the "FAMAS 2010". It is now an uncommonly-dropped weapon, rather than exotic.

The weapon possesses the highest RoF for any assault rifle in the game at 950RPM. Originally, it's magazine could not be upgraded, however a future update allowed magazine mods to be installed, making all aspects of the gun customizable.

FN F2000 Tactical

The FN F2000 Tactical is one of the new assault rifles in the sequel. Much like in GR: Wildlands, the weapon does not have a tri-rail on the handguard.

The weapon is used by Black Tusk scouts.

The FN FAL G returns as the "FAL". This time it fires in fully-automatic mode, which would be correct for the standard FN FAL, but not for the G Series, which are semi-auto only in reality.

The weapon is commonly used by the JTF and civilian militia forces. It is also used by the mysterious, unnamed underground-dwelling faction as their rifle of choice.

The FN SCAR-H appears in game as the "Police Mk17", "Military Mk17", and "MK20 SSR". The police variant has a two-tone black and tan finish and aftermarket stock and rail extension while the military variant uses standard factory parts. The SSR variant is based on the SCAR SSR, which is specifically meant to function as a DMR than battle rifle. The Police and Military variants are considered rifles, while the Mk20 SSR is considered a marksman's rifle.

The MK.20 SSR is used by higher-level Black Tusk snipers. Its also the preferred weapon of Rogue Division Agent: Theo Parnell, and uses one when he is confronted.

The FN SCAR-L variants return from the last game. The weapon comes in 3 variants, the one simply called "MK16", the "SOCOM" variant, and the "Tactical" variant. The MK16 is the factory default setup. The SOCOM variant has a two-tone coyote brown and black finish with an aftermarket SRX rail. The Tactical variant is based on a heavily customized CQC variant with a two-tone coyote brown and dark earth finish with aftermarket fore-end rail with collapsible M4-style Magpul stock.

The Tactical variant is used by higher-level Black Tusk riflemen.

Heckler & Koch G36C

The Heckler & Koch G36C is one of three G36 variants. The weapon is used by higher-level Hyena footsoldiers.

Heckler & Koch G28

The Heckler & Koch G28 was introduced during the Coney Island expansion. The weapon fires slowly, but is one of more powerful weapons in the rifle class.

Returning from the previous game, the Heckler & Koch G36KA4 with a STANAG magazine adapter returns as the "G36 Advanced".

Agent Alani Kelso uses a heavily customized G36KA4 as her rifle of choice, and its extensively used by higher-ranking Rikers riflemen.

Patriot Ordnance Factory P416

The Patriot Ordnance Factory P416 is the starting weapon of the player. The weapon has two variants. One is the "Military" and the other is the "P416 G3". The Military variant uses the standard factory setup, while the G3 is based on the custom "NP3" variant released by POF.

The military variant is used by Black Tusk grenadiers, civilian militia, and JTF guards. While the G3 variant is used by higher-level True Sons riflemen.

Remington ACR

The ACR returns from the first game.

The assault rifle variant is simply called the "ACR", and is based on the military Remington ACR model that uses 5.56x45mm rounds. The second one is the "ACR-E", the carbine variant.

The rifle variant is known as the "ACR SS" and can only fire in single shots and is setup for the 7.62mm caliber, which means it either uses 7.62x39mm or .300 AAC Blackout rounds. While aftermarket parts for civilian ACRs do exist to allow them to use the two cartridges previously mentioned, the gun is clearly based on a military-issue ACR, which are not designed to use such cartridges, although a plausible in-universe explanation is that these are military surplus re-tooled with civilian parts. Alternatively Ubisoft may have simply neglected to use a new model since the ACR SS is lifted directly from the first game's standard ACR. Despite this however, NPCs armed with this weapon appear to be using the military variant as they're capable of firing this on full-auto.

The Bushmaster ACR is sometimes used by civilian militia and standard Black Tusk riflemen, all of whom treat it like a standard assault rifle instead of a DMR. The Remington ACR is used by higher-level Black Tusk grenadiers.

SIG Sauer SIG716

The SIG Sauer SIG716 returns from the first game. It is no longer an exotic weapon, like the "Devil" and "Heel" were in the original game. It is classified as a rifle.

The weapon has two variants, first is the standard "SIG 716", which appears to be based on the "Precision Sniper" variant with a 20 inch barrel. The second is the "SIG 716 CQB", where it uses an aftermarket Fortis Night Rail handguard and the shorter 16 inch barrel. The difference between the two is that the CQB variant has a higher rate of fire than the standard one, however it cannot use long handguard attachments and it cannot use barrel modifications, being stuck with a custom muzzle brake.

A heavily customized Steyr AUG HBAR with the bi-pod removed and custom telescopic sight, appears as a unique exotic assault rifle named "Bighorn". The weapon first appeared during the "Warlords of New York expansion". The weapon has a unique ability where it can shoot fully automatic, but will turn into a rifle-type weapon and shoot in semi-auto when scoped in, also boosting damage by 450% to accommodate the lower RoF. The weapon can only be obtained by beating faction strongholds in "Legendary" difficulty, the highest difficulty setting currently available, making it prohibitively rare among players.

Steyr AUG HBAR - 5.56x45mm

Steyr AUG A3 CQC

In addition to the AUG A3 9mm XS, the Steyr AUG A3 CQC is one of the available primary weapons in the game and is one of the new additions.

War Sport LVOA-S

The War Sport LVOA-S returns as the "LVOA-C". It is now classified as a rifle (meaning that it is limited to semi-auto fire) and holds 30 rounds by default. The weapon features a green finish, Magpul UBR stock, MBUS Gen 2 sights and a Magpul PMAG.

For some reason, a forward assist is not modeled on the weapon.

Preview of the “LVOA-C”. Much like the Lightweight M4: despite it being restricted to semi-auto, the gun's selector switch is set to fully automatic. Also note the lack of a forward assist, an odd design choice since other AR-15s in the game have them modeled on.

The AA-12 returns from the first game as a common weapon drop as the "ACS-12," the same name used by the AA-12 in Ubisoft's most recent titles. By default it comes with a 20-round drum magazine and is fully automatic.

AA-12s are used by the Black Tusks, who for some reason see fit to issue it exclusively to their robotics engineers.

A preview of the A2-12. Note the strange black circles on the bolt; these aren't present on any real variant of the AA-12. The Tokyo Marui airsoft AA-12 does have black circles on its bolt (they serve as the hop-up adjustment dials), but those are smaller, further-forward, and present as a group of 3, so it's really not clear where this bolt design actually came from.

Benelli M4

The Benelli M4 returns from the last game and appears ingame as the "Super 90". A version with the normal pistol grip/solid stock, Surefire railed fore-end, and mariner finish appears as the "Marine Super 90". A short-barreled version with an M1014-style collapsible stock and short barrel, which appears to be a civilian NFA variant with Salient Arms International upgrades and a railed fore-end, is called the "Tactical Super 90 SBS".

The standard Benelli M4 is used by True Sons scouts, while the "Marine Super 90" is a secondary weapon used by SHD Agent Kelso and by Hyena Engineers, who are taking hood life to the next level by gangster-firing a full-sized shotgun.

Franchi SPAS-12

The SPAS-12 is a new shotgun, usable only in pump-action mode. It appears in both default and exotic variations. The standard SPAS-12 uses the folding stock and 22-inch barrel, but no other modifications available except for the magazine tube due to the lack of rails anywhere on the gun. There's a particularly interesting detail with the stock, in that it is folded when stowed on the agent's back, but is deployed when in use. The other exotic variants are the "Lullaby" and "Sweet Dreams".

The Sweet Dreams variant is an Outcast-customized variant that has a folding stock with the shell rack filled, vertical grip, and "stunner" under barrel attachment. The "Lullaby" (named so because of the previous owner's penchant for putting people to sleep with it by violent bludgeoning) was a pre-order bonus that is instantly available to the player (along with blueprints to make a high-level version for the end game) but is later available for purchase, where it sports a unique 18 inch short barrel, fixed stock with shell rack, reinforced grip on the pump, and reflex sight (that is supposedly broken due to the gun being used excessively as a blunt implement), along with a distinct Hyena aesthetic.). Both guns have a unique special effect, where a single melee attack with instantly kill a non-elite/robotic enemy (any infantry target that does not have a gold nameplate. This has no effect in PvP, however). The effect ignores all kinds of armor, health boosts, and personal shields, meaning that even if a non-elite enemy is using a ballistic shield and this was struck: so long as the melee attack connects, they're instantly killed.

The weapon is used by Rikers heavy weapon soldiers, who are unique in that they fire slug rounds, instead of buckshot. This makes them particularly deadly, as the slugs allow them to engage enemies at longer ranges, whilst having the power of a shotgun.

Kel-Tec KSG

The Kel-Tec KSG was introduced during the Conley College expedition update. The weapon is powerful and does not cycle between magazine tubes, treating the two as one large 12-round magazine.

The weapon is used by Black Tusk scouts as their weapon while charging their targets.

Saiga 12

The Saiga 12 returns, and retains the Ubisoft "SASG-12" moniker, which is becoming better known now as the "Sausage-12" shotgun among the community of Ubisoft shooters. It has another variant called the "Tactical SASG-12" variant which is a traditional Saiga-12K setup with an AK-style polymer fixed stock, pistol grip, and railed forend. The last is the "Black Market SASG-12", which uses an aftermarket quad rail handguard, shortened barrel, and Galil-style stock.

The Tactical variant is used by higher-level True Sons scouts, while the standard variant is used by named Hyena engineers.

Side by Side Double Barreled Shotgun

A side by side double barreled shotgun based on a L.C. Smith Double Barreled Shotgun is available in the game as the "Double Barrel Shotgun". A sawed-off variant appears as the "Double Barrel Sawed Off", but is classified as a sidearm.

The full-sized version is used by lower-level Outcast Engineers, while the civilian militia uses both variants. True Sons scouts also have a DBL slung behind them, alongside their primary shotgun, although they never actually use it and is just for aesthetics.

Remington 870

The Remington 870 appears in 3 variants: the "Military M870", "Custom M870", and the "M870 Express", which are a Remington 870 Express Tactical, a tactical with an M4-style stock, pistol grip and heatshield, and a Remington 870 Express Field Gun respectively.

The Express variant is commonly used by the JTF, civilian militia, and True Sons engineers. The Military version is used by True Sons heavy veterans, who will switch to it in a fit of rage if his Mark 14's ammo box on his person is destroyed, and higher-level Outcast Engineers.

Enfield L86A2

The L86A2 appears in game as the "Military L86 LSW". Another variant, called the "Custom L86 A2", sports the Daniel Defense railed forend and loads from Magpul EMags.

FN M249-E2 SAW

The M249-E2 appears in game as the "M249 B".

A custom Outcast variant called "Pestilence" is available, where much of the furniture appears to have been replaced with brown polymer parts and copious amounts of bandages and now sports a rustic metallic silver finish. Additionally it is so far the only LMG in the game to feature the bi-pod still attached (albeit unusable) and still retains the M249's original heat shield. The weapon has a special debuff where shooting deals 100% of it's damage continuously over a period of 10 seconds and stacks upto 50 times. If a debuffed target dies, the debuff spreads around to nearby enemies within a 25m raidus.

The weapon is occasionally used by civilian militia.

FN M249 Para

The M249-Paratrooper appears as the "Tactical M249 Para". The weapon comes with the US Army's RFI improvements installed, although it still uses the old collapsible stock of the original para, instead of the telescoping stock based on the M4's.

It also uses the longer 21 inch barrels of standard M249s rather than the shorter 18 inch barrels used by Paratrooper variants.

Heckler & Koch MG5

The Heckler & Koch MG5 appears as the "MG5" and "Infantry MG5". The weapon possesses a high rate of fire, but limited by its 50-round cloth pouch and longer reloading time of belt-fed LMGs. The MG5 is the universal variant, while the Infantry MG5 is based on the lighter MG5 A2.

The standard MG5 is used by Hyena heavy armored soldiers, where they are fed from a backpack-mounted box that allows them to fire for long periods without reloading. This is also a weakpoint, as destroying the box or the exposed belt will force them to reload the gun. A custom MG5 with an abnormally long barrel is also used as the main weapon of Black Tusk Unmanned Ground Vehicles.

Knight's Armament LAMG

The KAC LAMG appears as the "Stoner LAMG". It was added in an update in July 2019. It has a 200-round capacity and the QDC Flash Suppressor cannot be removed or changed.

M60 Machine Gun

An original M60 Machine Gun appears in the game as the "Classic M60". The weapon's integral bi-pod has been removed and also has several rails affixed to the weapon to allow a variety of attachments.

The weapon is used by True Sons gunners and civilian militia.

The RPK-74 is available in game as the "Classic RPK-74". Unlike in the previous game, it now has a short underside rail that allows for a handguard attachment.

Izhmash RPK-74M

The military-spec variant of the RPK-74M returns as the "Military RPK-74 M". Unlike in the previous game, it now has a short underside rail that allows for a handguard attachment. A heavily customized version with a slew of aftermarket parts and a casket magazine also appears called the "Black Market RPK-74M"

The weapon is used by Outcast gunners. Rogue Division agent and new Rikers commander: James Dragov, uses a heavily customized RPK-74M as his weapon of choice. Being an absolute unit, Dragov fires his RPK one-handed while holding a heavy ballistic shield.

Sniper Rifles

Accuracy International AX338

A heavily customized Accuracy International AX338 appears as the "Nemesis", a unique exotic-tier sniper rifle made by a Black Tusk sniper named "Puck" (although she herself never actually uses the weapon when she is encountered). The weapon has a unique mechanic where the weapon will deal anywhere between 0-100% damage, depending on how long the shooter "charges" the weapon before firing a shot.

Desert Tactical Arms Stealth Recon Scout

Both the covert and the standard A1 variant of the DTA Stealth Recon Scout return.

The A1 variant is used by Black Tusk snipers.

The DSR-1 is a new addition to the SHD's arsenal. Referred to as the "SR-1".

The weapon is used by elite Rikers squad leaders, who may switch to it when encountered at long range, but will switch to their customized P90s up close.

McMillan TAC-50

One of the new "Signature Weapons" introduced in the sequel, the McMillan TAC-50 is the signature weapon of the Sharpshooter class and can be equipped once the specialization is acquired. It is housed in a Cadex stock, similar to the one added to Ghost Recon: Wildlands.

The weapon has very limited ammunition, a total of 8 shots (although ammo can be obtained through several headshot kills). Whilst at first glance it is the weakest of the single-shot signature weapons: the TAC-50 is a long-range hitscan weapon (making it harder to dodge), and has a base headshot multiplier of 200%, allowing it to potentially out-damage other signature weapons through consistent headshots.

Mosin Nagant M44 Carbine

The Mosin Nagant M44 Carbine returns as the "Classic M44 Carbine". A sportized version with a grey carbon stock appears as the "Hunting M44 Carbine". A further modified version fitted in an Archangel stock makes an appearance as the "Custom M44 Carbine".

Remington 700

The Remington 700 returns in the sequel with 3 versions. The "M700" has a wooden walnut stock, the "M700 Tactical" variant has a McMillan A5 stock, and the "M700 Carbon" variant is fitted with a XLR Tactical Buttstock and Carbon Chassis.

The standard variant is used by standard True Sons snipers.

The SVD appears in The Division 2 and has two versions. The first one is the "Surplus" variant, which is fitted with the all-wooden furniture of military SVDs. The second one is the "paratrooper" variant, which is actually the "Tiger" version made by Izhmash for the civilian export market. Despite the naming, both variants use abnormally short barrels that they appear to be un-bullpuped SVUs than actual SVDs, an artifact of the Far Cry3/4 SVD model.

The Surplus variant is used by Hyena snipers, who are most probably the most OG of gangsters in DC as they are capable of firing a 5kg DMR loaded with 7.62x54mm rounds, gangster style.

Carl Gustav M3

The Carl Gustav M3 rocket launcher is used by True Sons, being the main weapon of their anti-tank troops.

The weapon is also used by General Antwon Ridgeway, JTF mutineer and True Sons commanding officer, during his final stand against the Division.

"Chem Launcher" (H&K GLM)

The "Chem Launcher" is a compact, break-action single-shot grenade launcher heavily based on the Heckler & Koch GLM. It can fire flammable chemicals, sticky foam, corrosive chemicals that eat away enemy armor, or repairing nanobots.

The Firestarter variant of the "Chem Launcher", configured to fire flammable chemicals. It's likely the only weapon in the game that has the safety on. Also, it would be rather dangerous to use this without a handstop.

Heckler & Koch P2A1

The Heckler & Koch P2A1 Flare Pistol returns as the flaregun of choice for Division agents, which is received a few missions into the game. Along with being able to call for extraction choppers while inside the "Dark Zones", which inhibit radio communications while inside; it can also be used while attacking faction control points during free roam, which will summon friendly reinforcements, but will also alert nearby enemies.

Milkor Mark 14

The Milkor Mark 14 MGL returns from the previous game, though it is now available as the signature weapon of the Demo class. The game specifically refers to it as the M32A1 MSGL, which is the partly correct designation used by the US Marines. It fires M406 HE grenades.

The weapon is used by a variety of enemies, namely Hyena grenadiers (who apparently obtained them through the anonymous sponsorship of the Black Tusks), True Sons heavy armored veterans, and Black Tusk grenadiers who can also fire incendiary airburst rounds along with HE grenades. Its also the weapon of "Wyvern", an elite Black Tusk officer in their Tidal Basin stronghold, who will mercilessly bombard players with machine precision.

M224 Mortar

The True Sons make use of M224 Mortars during the Jefferson Plaza and US Capitol missions, although they once used it to bombard a civilian settlement with toxic gas in retaliation to their continued attacks against the Sons. The weapon is incredibly powerful, but it's splash area can be briefly seen before impact as red circles on the ground and can be stopped by killing the crewman operating the weapon (atleast during the Jefferson Plaza mission).

Some M224s can also be seen in the Theater settlement after certain upgrades are unlocked, although they are never actually used.

UGV Grenade Launcher

Alongside the MG5, Black Tusk Unmanned Ground Vehicles also have a 4-barreled array of grenade launchers to flush out enemies in cover. They appear to be based on the US army's M243 smoke grenade launchers, except these launch fragmentation grenades instead and the barrels are aligned in a 90-degree angle to allow accurate bombardments.

As a drawback however, the drone itself is not capable of using the weapon. A Black Tusk drone operator needs to remotely take over the UGV and use the grenade launchers himself (which also leaves him open for an ambush if flanked).

M26 Frag

The M26 frag grenade appears as the "Concussion Grenade". It is the default grenade available from the start and deals a high amount of damage, but has a small blast radius of only 3 meters.

Fragmentation Grenade

An odd-looking grenade that appears to be a mix of the Mk 2 hand grenade and the Mills Bomb appears as the "Fragmentation Grenade" and is exclusive to the Demolition specialization. The weapon has a lower damage rating than the standard concussion grenade, but has a wider blast zone of 5 meters and inflicts bleeding status to compensate.

M84 stun grenade

The M84 stun grenade is the usable less-than-lethal grenade in the game, although its exclusive to the Sharpshooter specialization and unlocked by investing points in the appropriate skill. The weapon has a stun radius of 7m.

M18 Smoke Grenade

M18 smoke grenades of varying colors are attached to Hyena and certain player tactical vests. They are sometimes used by Hyena named characters, who will toss them at players to disorient them with smoke clouds.

Mounted Weapons

Browning M2

An NPC exclusive weapon. A custom M2 HMG with it's barrel cut short and full-auto capabilities removed is used by the Hyenas for their sniper turrets. The weapon no longer feeds from the traditional belt, and instead single shots are loaded into the chamber using a small automated loading platform, which can be shot for a brief moment that would force the turret to stop firing, until it is repaired by a Hyena engineer.

Heavy weapon specialists of the Rikers have the ability of deploying an Browning M2 HMG with a forward-facing ballistic shield in front. It is not automated, so someone must man the turret to fire, which potentially makes them vulnerable. Despite it's crude nature, it cannot be used by players, and will self-destruct if all Rikers in the area are dead, if an agent comes too close to one.

Browning M2HB - .50 BMG

Dillon Aero M134 Minigun

The Dillon Aero M134 Minigun is mounted at various checkpoints and control points and can be used by the player, along with enemy and friendly NPCs. Unlike in Ghost Recon Wildlands, the gun is now correctly depicted with it feeding from an ammo belt and powered by a portable power source (which appears to be jury-rigged car batteries). The weapon does decent damage and has a blistering rate of fire, along with having minimal recoil, but as a balancing measure: the gun overheats if fired continuously for too long and has to cool down before being able to fire again.

A "portable version" similar to the one used in Terminator 2: Judgment Day by Arnold Schwarzenegger, is used by Black Tusk heavy armored soldiers, who are not only able to carry around a portable power source, thousands of rounds in ammunition, and heavy bulletproof armor that would put EOD armor to shame, but are also capable of using it as a blunt implement in close combat with lethal results. However, the gun's weakpoint is it's external ammo belt. By destroying it, the heavy will stop shooting and will be forced to reload his gun, which takes a considerable amount of time. As of the "Warlords of New York" expansion, the Black Tusks have outfitted some of their Warhound walkers to carry M134 miniguns, instead of their usual railgun.

A later patch included a portable M134 Minigun that could be used by players under the "Gunner" specialization.

A Rikers-controlled derelict M1200 APC that's situated in their main base in Wall Street is also armed with a remote-operated M134 mounted on a turret. As its no longer mobile, the APC functions as an armored pillbox instead. It can only be destroyed by shooting at specific weakpoints on the APC.

General Electric GAU-8/A Avenger

The True Sons have a salvaged GAU-8/A Avenger autocannon mounted on the top of the steps of the US Capitol Building, their main base of operations. It overlooks the Capitol grounds and is remotely controlled to be used against anyone brave enough to stare down what's essentially an anti-tank gun on angry steroids.

After being de-activated, it is briefly used by Division agents to breach the reinforced entrance of the Capitol.

General Dynamics M197 Vulcan

The General Dynamics M197 Vulcan is employed by the Black Tusks for their Predator drones, which are massive, heavily armed and armored quad-rotor UAVs that's occasionally spotted patrolling in Black Tusk-controlled territories during invasions, and during the Black Tusks' raid on Aaron Keener's stronghold in Liberty Island, NY.

The weapon has a withering rate of fire capable of shredding NPC and player armor and health at a rapid rate if one gets caught in the open. Coupled with the fact they're fairly durable: the drone is a force to be reckoned with.

SHD Sentry Gun

What appears to be a cross between the Mk 19 Grenade Launcher and Browning M2A2 is used as the remote sentry guns around Dark Zone checkpoints, which was implemented to largely reduce "checkpoint camping" in the DZ that was prevalent in the first game.

The guns will open fire on any nearby enemies in range, whether NPCs or rogue Division agents, although their line of sight can be tracked by the laser sight that become visible when they attack. Additionally, they are also armed with shock munitions, which will instantly stun and open up any target to further attack, and are impervious to damage. During "Occupied Dark Zone" events however, the guns are disabled by the Black Tusks.

The Black Tusks deploy quadrupedal military drones called "Warhounds", which are armed with a fictional railgun mounted on it's back. The drone "charges" the weapon briefly before firing and is incredibly powerful and accurate. A direct hit bypasses armor, deals heavy damage, and inflicts bleeding status, hence a downed agent is very likely to be killed in a few second when shot. As downsides, it telegraphs it's attack with an audible ringing sound, there is a 2 second delay before the gun is fully charged, it must stand still to fire, and it's gun lights up when aiming. Visually, the exposed portion of the gun appears to be the front end of the Gepard GM6 Lynx model from Far Cry 4, with a Barrett M82A1-styled muzzle brake on the end.

Drone Machine Gun

One of the new skills available in the game is the "Drone", which is a quad-rotor UAV that follows the player around and can be assigned certain tasks depending on the variant used.

The default variant is the "Assault Drone", which is armed with a fictional underside, small-caliber machine gun, that is held by a servo arm. The weapon has low damage but has a high rate of fire and does not need to reload, making it effective at harassing opponents.

Baikal MP-133

The Baikal MP-133 makes appearance in the demonstration gameplay video as the "Military M133", but is not available in the final version of the game. Perhaps it was simply replaced (or renamed) to Remington 870, considering how close these guns are in Ubisoft games.

Much like the Cleaners from the first game, the Outcasts make use of jury-rigged flame throwers for their specialized flamer units. Unlike their NYC counterparts however, the Outcasts employ it for their sadism and penchant for brutal terror tactics, rather than as a means to eradicate the Green Poison through fire.

The weapon shoots out bursts of napalm over a short but wide distance. It is operated by a liquid fuel tank mounted on the weapon and a pressurized gas tank attached to the back of the user. The rear-mounted gas tank is the unit's weak point and if it's destroyed: they can no longer use the flamethrower and will instead switch to their S&W 686 revolvers.

The Division also has their own flamethrowers in the form of the "Flame Turret" skill.

As of the "Warlords of New York" expansion, the cleaners have returned, and with them their plethora of DIY flame throwers. Much like in the previous game, riflemen carry under-barrel flame throwers with high-pressure fuel tanks mounted behind them. Heavy "tank" cleaners are armed with a heavy flamethrower instead, which is is a massive flame thrower with longer range and fed with 3 separate fuel tanks, all of which they're still capable of lugging around with impeccable grace, undernear a HAZMAT suit, gas mask, and body armor.
