The Division 2 One Shot Sniper Build Guide
In This Division 2 Guide we'll be showing you the Best Sniper Agent Build For The Division 2 which will be extremely powerful for both mid and endgame content. This Sniper Build is excellent for players who love playing with Marksman Rifles as it can deal tremendous amounts of damage to a point where you can one-shot pretty much anything in the game other than armored bosses and such. Please note that the Sniper Character Build is strong for both solo and group play but it's more useful in groups as you'll have more time to land crucial shots while your team supports you and keeps the enemies away. A Sniper is very hard to aim with, and you'll have to headshot enemies if you plan on maximizing the damage in this sniper build which means that it can be a hard build to play if you're a beginner to games like The Division 2.

This build is relatively easy to acquire and has the highest one shot damage numbers in the game, making it the strongest PvP build so far, all you need is the Marksman Rifle and Airaldi Holdings Brand set, making this build mid and end game viable. It performs really well for PvE content as well, Dark Zones are a breeze with the MR build.
The Turret will be tanking all of the damage for you whilst you aim down and kill everything. Currently, Assault Turret is the best one for the Marksman Rifle build.
The Fixer Drone is going to be your source of "Passive" armor regeneration, this is important because if you lose your Armor on this build, well, you're most probably dead within a few seconds. As a sniper character, your main goal is to never get hit, but if you ever do, this little Fixer Drone will keep your armor full.
The general attributes you're gonna be wanting to look on all Gear pieces for on this Sniper Agent Build are increased damage to Elites, Headshot damage, Weapon Damage, Critical Chance and Marksman Rifle Damage.
The absolute best Brand Set for this build is the Airaldi Holdings, after that you can fill with really any other gear pieces. What we recommend though is that you fill with either Providence Defense or Overlord Armaments as these are solid options that will provide you with either more damage or defenses.
Talents are going to play an important role in the Sniper Agent Build as they will provide additional utility and damage. On the Mask you'll want to get Centered, Breastplate with Unstoppable Force, Backpack with On the Ropes, Gloves with Opportunist and lastly, Kneepads with Precise. You can check the full list of Talents here.
In case you ever end up within close range of hostiles, you'll want an Assault Rifle to burst them down with. A solid performer within AR's is the CTAR-21 but you can choose pretty much any gun you'd like because the build is centered around the Marksman Rifle as your primary weapon.
The Marksman Rifle will be the cookie cutter of your Sniper Build, you'll want this gun to be at least Purple tier because the rarer it is the stats scale higher (goal is Orange, high end). With a purple MR you can get around 90% increased headshot damage, which is the main thing you'll be looking for as headshots will be the main damage dealers of this build. Good Marksman Rifles for this build are the Model 700 and M44, both have great normalized damage and DPS.
Note that you can also remove the Scopes from the Marksman Rifle because it will be easier to aim and you can actually use it in close distance to one-shot people which is absolutely nuts for PvP in the Dark Zone.
Since this whole build and marksman rifle loadout is based around fighting over long distances and using Sniper rifles, your best Specialization will be the Sharpshooter. As a Sharpshooter you'll gain the strong signature Marksman Rifle which will be dealing tremendous amounts of damage. On top of that, the Sharpshooter skill tree is focused around increasing your Marksman Rifle damage even more, which will come in handy for reaching the highest possible damage numbers.
