The Division 1.7 DeadEYE Build – 6 Piece Classified Gear Set
Here is The Division 1.7 DeadEYE build, which is also a full 6 piece classified gear set. With the 1.7 update, there is now the addition of classified gear sets. The difference between the Division 1.7 classified gear sets and the regular gear sets is that the classified gear sets come with addition base stats and 5 and 6 piece set bonuses. The Division 1.7 DeadEYE build, with it’s 5 piece set, comes with an additional 40% initial bullet stability, an additional 20% Marksman Rifle Critical Hit Damage, and the 6 piece bonus reads: “When zoomed,getting a headshot kill with Marksman rifles will increase critical hit damage by 20% every second to a maximum of 100% and will increase stability by 100%. Lasts for 10 seconds or until no longer zoomed”. The other change to the DeadEYE gear set is that you now have to be in cover to receive the 100% critical hit chance bonus when zoomed. If not in cover, then you will receive a 50% critical hit chance when zoomed. This build is pretty straight forward so let’s break it down, shall we? You will notice that the Division 1.7 DeadEYE build is spec-ed entirely into firearms. With a set like this, you best option is to have as much firearms as possible. It’s not something we usually recommend but, in this case, it is the best choice.
Major Attributes: Health and Enemy Armor Damage
Minor Attribute: Ammo Capacity
This piece is one of two pieces of gear that we are actually going to try and get health on. Also, the enemy armor damage is a good choice to help break down your opponents defenses faster. Remember to keep in mind that the Division 1.7 classified gear sets also let you re-calibrate 2 attributes instead of just one.
Major Attribute: Enemy Armor Damage
Minor Attribute: Burn Resistance or Damage to Elites if you are using the build for P.V.E.
Again, enemy armor damage is used here as well to help break down your opponents armor to do more damage per shot.
Major Attribute: Critical Hit Damage
Minor Attributes: Burn, Bleed and Shock resistances are good choices here.
Knee pads are one of the places we usually try and roll health or skill power as a major attribute, but with The Division 1.7 DeadEYE build, we want as much critical hit damage here as we can get.
Major Attribute: Critical Hit Damage
Minor attribute: Burn Resistance
This is the other piece of gear that we usually try to roll for health or skill power. However, again we need to get as much as critical hit damage as possible.
Major Attributes: Marksman Rifle Damage, Critical Hit Damage, SMG Damage
This one is kind-of a no brainer. Specific Weapon damages and, of course, Critical Hit Damage.
Major Attribute: Health
Health is the best option here. It will compliment the Division 1.7 DeadEYE build better that any other choice here.
Also, all of the performance mods should be First-Aid Self Heal because we will be using the weapon damage boost from the First-Aid Booster Shot.
Weapon Talents should be spec-ed for Critical Hit Damage and one vertical grip with optimum range for your Marksman’s Rifle.
We tried a bunch of different combinations here and the Booster Shot and Countermeasures is the best fit. Both offer a boost to weapon damage which is what we want with this build.
Recovery Link, in my option, is the better of the three Signature Skills hands down.
For your Talents you can choose which ever talents compliment your game play the most. There were no changes to these in the Division 1.7 classified gear sets.
With the division 1.7 classified gear sets we also got the first Global Event. The DeadEYE, Lone Start, and Final Measure classified gear sets were the first set that we could get our hands on. The Division 1.7 DeadEYE build is intense and powerful. With the way we have this built, you will be able to take on all comers at any range. That’s the beauty of running with so much Firearms…any weapon you use is going to be devastating. Most DeadEYE builds we’ve seen have you running with two sniper rifles but, keep this in mind, you can only shoot one weapon at a time. Enjoy one-shotting rogues and controlling entire streets in the Dark Zone. Take this build into the Last Stand and Be the over watch King!
