Perks List | The Division

Perks in The Division upgrade the player’s inventory, increase the effects of consumables, provide various additional slots, etc. Like it is with skills and talents, there are three types of perks: medical, tech and security.
What makes them different is that Perks do not have to be equipped. They become active as soon as you unlock them. This is done by upgrading specific wings in the Base of Operations. Note that there is no limit. You can use all 40 of them at once. This guide will show you a list of all perks in The Division, what they do and how to unlock them.
