This page explains how to unlock all Specializations in The Division 2.
Once you reach level 30 in The Division 2, you’ll have officially reached the endgame. It’s here when even more of the game opens up to you and the true loot grind begins.
You’ll also gain access to three different Specializations. Think of these are different archetypes or classes which each come with their own signature weapons. There’s the Demolitionist which uses a grenade launcher, the Survivalist which uses a crossbow and the Sharpshooter which wields a sniper.
They each come with their own situational advantages and you’ll be free to swap between them at will. What’s more, they each come with skill trees which allows you to customise their abilities and stats to suit your playstyle.
These Specializations don’t actually open up to you straight away which can be quite confusing if you’re expecting to nab them as soon as you hit level 30. First, you’ll need to take care of a few things...
Below we’ll take you through all the steps required to unlock all three Specializations in The Division 2.

How to unlock Specializations in The Division 2
First things first, you’ll need to have reached level 30. If you’re in a rush to reach the endgame, we’ve put together a Leveling guide which you should check out. It contains a host of tips and tricks to bolster your XP gains and get you there as quickly as possible.
Once you’ve reached level 30, you’ll then need to go about clearing all of the Strongholds found on the map. Unfortunately, you can’t just waltz in as you’ll have to meet their requirements.
Make sure you watch the video by Arekkz Gaming we've embedded above, as it provides a brilliant breakdown of how to unlock these Specializations and go about upgrading them too.
Here’s a breakdown of each one:
- Stronghold #1 - District Union Area - Requirements: Gear Score 275, Grand Washington Hotel, Jefferson Trade Center.
- Stronghold #2 - Roosevelt Island - Requirements: Gear Score 275, Federal Emergency Bunker, Potomac Event Center.
- Stronghold #3 - Capitol Building - Requirements: All of the above complete.
Once you’ve cleared every Stronghold, you’ll then reach World Tier 1 and gain access to Specializations. It’s at this point you’ll be prompted to go back to the Quartermaster and get started with them.
The dynamics of the world will also have changed and enemy factions will become more aggressive and actively try to reclaim their territories.
On top of this, there are four extra World Tiers (5 in total) and to unlock them you’ll need to clear out all three Strongholds and reach certain Gear Score requirements which will become progressively harder too.
