Division 2 Eagle Bearer Exotic assault rifle: how to get the Dark Hours raid weapon

The Division 2's Dark Hours raid exclusive weapon is here, and this guide will show you how to get it


How do you get The Division 2 Eagle Bearer Exotic assault rifle? Now that Ubisoft’s first raid is out, Dark Hours in the post-apocalyptic looter shooter, we can imagine you’re wondering how to get it. Perhaps more importantly, you’ll also want to know what talents it has, and if the Exotic weapon is any good, too.

As we’re sure you can guess, you’ll need to do the raid to get Eagle Bearer in The Division 2. To access Operation Dark Hours, however, you’ll need to make sure you have a gear score of at least 490. As a side note, the closer you can get to 500, the easier it’ll be, and you might well have to run the raid a few times to get the new Division 2 Exotic. If you’re looking for tips to get your gear score up, then our Division 2 leveling guide will serve you well.

Now that’s out of the way, in this Division 2 Eagle Bearer Exotic assault rifle guide we’ll go over what talents this weapon has and what you need to do to get your hands on it.

Division 2 Eagle Bearer talents

The talents for the Exotic assault rifle are very promising. When everything is in full flow you’ll feel like you have an unstoppable bullet hose in your hands. Here are the talents of The Division 2 Eagle Bearer:

How to get The Division 2 Eagle Bearer Exotic assault rifle

Assuming you’re raid ready and have a gear score of at least 490, head over to the Dark Hours raid with a group and get yourselves prepared. If you still need to increase your power a bit, then grinding World Tiers will serve you well.

It looks like there are a few ways you can get the Eagle Bearer within this first Division 2 raid, but they all come down to chance. The first is by killing any its bosses, where the other is by opening the raid’s loot chest. To open it, you’ll need to get a key that can drop from any of the four raid bosses.

As we said, getting the Exotic assault rifle to drop is entirely RNG, and there’s no way to guarantee it. So get ready to grind.
