Talents Guide | The Division

Talents are abilities in The Division that give the player a passive bonus during play. They are divided into three main types: medical, tech and security, corresponding to the skill types.
Unlike skills, talents don’t have to be activated. You simply equip them and they do all the work for you. You can equip a maximum of 4 talents (5 if you have a certain perk). New talents are unlocked through wing upgrades in the Base of Operations. Here is a full list of talents in The Division with descriptions and requirements.
