What are The Division 2 Dark Zone perks? The beloved Dark Zone from The Division is back and while there’s not a huge amount that’s changed with the mode itself, the sequel has plenty of new tricks up its sleeve to keep this intriguing PvP/PvE area interesting for players.
One of these changes is the new Dark Zone perks tree and level system. But there’s no reason to be afraid of the dark. Our guide will show you why it is worth leveling through the Dark Zone perks tree and what rewards to expect along the way.
The Dark Zone is one of the most entertaining parts of The Division 2 and it has a lot of depth as well. It’s available after you’ve unlocked Senait Ezera as the Dark Zone Officer and is well worth getting stuck into for good loot and stories, and the more time you spend there the more you’ll be rewarded with these useful DZ perks.
Your Dark Zone level dictates what tier of the Dark Zone perks tree you are at. Doing well in the DZ increases it, but doing poorly can make it go down. So, be careful out there, Agents. It’s worth noting that you can only unlock one Dark Zone perk in each tier, so this is a way of determining your DZ play style – do you prefer PvP or PvE. Here is the list:
