When I first put The Division on and seen my gear set my heart sunk to the floor as it was 234 and now it is 202... but I had a case full of HE weapons and Green Gear Sets with a lot of gear and weapon mods. So after a lot of speaking and balancing I managed to get from 194 to 207 which is a start. I like the changes they have made and these should have been in the world in the first place.I have 2 sniper rifles with a gear of 182 with a DPS of 144 and the other gear of 204 with a DPS Is 220 and the 220 is one bullet to the head and its lights out but the M44 Custom for long range at 144 one bullet to the head and it's devastatingly awesome. I think some people will be angry at Ubisoft and Massive Entertainment because their weapons are now as useless as pea shooters. But if you giggle a few things around and go through your box of goodies you will end up with a better weapons set as you had before. My 45 Cal Pistol has a DPS of 140 with 30 rounds and because it's infinite I now just use a pistol. Although there is one thing that is a little disheartening and that is my mags were 1871 and now 858 which a bit of a sting in the tale to say the least. But I will rebuild again and concor it is just a matter of time before increase gear set increased and it has increased already. My gear is going up and up and up already. It was 194 and now it's 207 and going up.
