We honestly haven’t expected to see more info about the new Gear Sets that are coming with the The Division Update 1.1 until its release next week. All the better that a new screenshot is showing a detailed breakdown of their characteristics and set bonuses which already give us a small glimpse of what awaits us on April 12th.

Let’s start with the set bonuses you get when equipping multiple items of one Gear Set. The first set bonus will be unlocked as soon as you equip at least 2 items of a set, while 6 items will be available per set. We are either missing something out at this point, or equipping all of them is useless unless it grants you another full set bonus that is not shown in the screenshot above.

But it’s up to you if you want to make use of them at all.

The next set bonuses are granted with 3 or 4 equipped items, while the last bonus is actually a Gear Set Talent on top of the 2 stat modifier bonuses.
