Knowing where The Division 2 Gear Dyes locations are is the first step to perfecting your agent’s look. Standing out from the crowd in The Division 2 can be tough, as most unlocks are made up of black textures or a camouflage pattern. While these might make sense in the post-apocalyptic Washington D.C. setting, this is ultimately a video game where customization can add an extra layer of fun to the experience. Thankfully, developer Massive Entertainment has made it possible to change gear color, in a similar way to how you can change weapon color with weapon skins. For gear, you’ll need Gear Dyes. Here’s where to find Gear Dyes in The Division 2.
The Division 2 Gear Dyes Locations | How to change gear color
As touched on in the intro above, how to change gear color in The Division 2 is all about Gear Dyes. Simply find these and you’ll be able to head into your Gear Mods inventory. Select the Dye Slot and you’ll then see a list of applicable dyes. Simply choose the one you like best using the character appearance preview, hit select, and then back out to see it equipped in-game.
Gear Dyes are not permanent and aren’t used up when you apply them. This makes it easy to switch out Gear Dyes as often as you like, without having to worry about wasting them and losing them forever. They can also be equipped to multiple items at once, making it easy to create a matching set of clothing.

In addition to being able to purchase Gear Dyes from the in-game Vendor, should you get lucky with his inventory rotation, and randomly through drops, you can also find Gear Dyes out in the wild world of Washington D.C.
The most reliable The Division 2 Gear Dyes locations are orange supply boxes, which can be found above the ground. These appear to be supply drops that have parachuted down, initially intended to help survivors in the city. Now they have become treasure chests filled with loot, and potentially a Gear Dye.
It seems that becoming level 30 and beginning to increase your Gear Score is best achieved first, before then hunting down these orange supply boxes. Being level 30 appears to guarantee a Gear Dye in each of these drops. (However, I have found dyes in these drops at as low as level 15.)
