The Division 2 Gear Brands | What are they?

The Division 2 Gear Brands support assault

The Division 2 gear Brands differ from gear sets. While you need a full set to unlock certain boosts for the latter, gear Brands give you an immediate bonus to your weapons of choice.

This allows you some flexibility in what Brands to use, and how to best implement them based on how you want to play. If you’re a sniper, a medic, or a run-and-gun type player, there are Brands for everyone to enjoy.

You receive additional bonuses for similar Brands too  up to a maximum of three, that is  and, don’t worry, you won’t need to wait to use them. Gear Brands are available at launch, so see which ones will work best for you by reading below.
