The best way to get powerful new Gear is to farm for it in the Dark Zone areas. To be specific, the Dark Zone chests. The Dark Zone chests are scattered all around the Dark Zone map as you can see in the picture shown below.
There are currently two types of Dark Zone chests: Contaminated Chests (which have dark yellow on it) and normal DZ chests. The Contaminated Chests will reward you with two gear pieces and they usually have better loot than the normal ones making them the best ones, although a thing to note is that they require 2 Dark Zone keys for unlocking instead of one like their normal counterpart. If you don't have any keys, don't worry! Pick locking the Contaminated Chests is the way to go because it gives you a higher chance for better loot. Loot from the Contaminated Chests must be extracted via a Chopper, whilst the normal chests can be extracted by carrying them right in your inventory.
The Division 2 Gear Farming Alternatives
You will also acquire some loot from clearing bosses and landmarks, but primarily your focus should be on farming the DZ chests.
Another good option of farming loot fast in The Division 2 is to play the Control Point missions because when you take over a Control Point you'll be given access to a room full of great loot.
Skirmishes are a solid alternative if you don't enjoy doing PvE content all day long. Skirmishes are PvP and you'll be rewarded with loot caches. Caches are usually a decent way of getting starter gear fast, like some common items and new weapons whilst having some fun at the same time if you don't enjoy farming all day.
