Welcome to Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 – Builds collection and Tools Weapon Guide.
This guide will help you find all the links and descriptions of my build collection, as well as several spreadsheet-based tools that i have created over the years.
Build a Collection
You can find my build collection at the following link.
It is a folder in Google Drive that contains build photos. They are intended to show you the layout and all stats and talents associated with the gear, easily and quickly.
It is all the loudouts I currently have and runs on 5 characters across 2 different accounts.
Each build has 16 loadout slots. This gives you 80 active builds with no duplicates.
I also have 20 other older builds or not good enough that i have used over the years. But they are no longer in a loading slot.
It also contains a list of recommended builds as a guide. This includes information on which build is best for what and some recommendations for newer players.
I am still active, and it is constantly updated as i add or change loadouts. As new gear becomes available, i will likely make a few builds and add them in. It is an active reflection of my loadout slots, which is what it started as, to help me keep track of my builds.
All the builds are run for at least a few hours by me, solo and in groups. I won’t claim that all of them are the best. Some simply try out a playstyle; others are testing stats and talents. All have some value and can be used for at least their intended purpose. This is all to say that there isn’t much useless stuff in there, as much as clickbait-based sources.
These build pictures are not only for experienced players. They also require some knowledge of the game. If you have difficulty understanding how to copy a build, look at the links in “other tools”. There are written guides that are easier for beginners.
Tables with damage per mag weapon: Burst DPS, Sustain and sustain DPS
I also keep and maintain an excel folder that contains spreadsheets of weapon DPS. These are sorted by both burst & sustain dps and dmg/mag. Also, tables for fast hands.
These links will take you to their websites:
There are many sheets within the file. Most are small parts of the main 0.0, Sustain, and Mag Dmg files. It is easier to read a single table when you are only interested in one or more of them.
You will also find a very short written guide that needs to be rewritten. It explains you burst and sustain briefly, but it is not as good as i would like it.
These metrics are the hard stats about the damage of weapons in the game. They are also factored to account for reload speed gained by watch points and the extended mag most gamers will use per weapon type. This makes it different from other base stat weapon charts. It is closer to having the metrics in an easy-to-use format.
But i want to remind you that hard stats can only be as good as soft stats (accuracy during actual play for example). Don’t take this as a tier list. There are other factors that are important and you should only use it as a tool along with game knowledge.
Here is the link to my DMG calculators. You will need to be copied to your Google folder and filled in to use them.
These will convert the numbers from your in-game stats to the yellow fields. It also shows you your dmg outputs in burst as well as sustain.
You will also find a dmg for each talent in the main file. This is for the most commonly used talents for that build.
You can also use the file setup to compare two or more builds quickly. It may seem overwhelming initially, but if you follow the guide, it will become quite easy.
Finally, a file that includes quick comparisons, such as a quick chc/CHD combination, is better for this build. It is all in one file.
These are the layouts I and others use to determine the best layout for a particular build. It is best to have the highest possible dps if you have to choose between two layouts that play exactly the same (like having or not having a Fox’s Prayer in a red build).
Keep in mind that if two builds are not playing the same way, then you will need to consider these factors along with the dmg output.
Finally, i want you to know about some other tools that this fantastic community has made available.
The official discord: This is a great place for questions and build advice. I frequent it myself and highly recommend it if you are as sucked in to the game as the rest of us.
The discord spreadsheet: The official discord maintains a spreadsheet that contains information about all weapons, gears, and skills in the game. There is also a section of written build guides that is particularly helpful for newer players. It is easier to understand when you can follow the directions.
The Reddit spreadsheet: This is another great resource of knowledge for division 2. It is still up-to-date and has more datamined information. This means you have plenty of loot and drop opportunities.
Ruben runs a vendor site. Although it is not as useful for mods or normal gear anymore, it is still valuable to Cassie and the DZ vendors. It also has a guide on how to find the snitch to the aforementioned Cassie.
