Gear Sets, Bonuses and Special Talents Explained

With update 1.1, once the new gear sets are collected, each will provide players with a unique talent and buffs for their chosen class. To take advantage of the new perk, all four items in the gear set much be collected and equipped.

Players will be able to acquire the pieces from drops, assignment completion and completing the Falcon Lost mission.

The sets allow players to create marksman, assault or tank builds and one for those who like soloing the Dark Zone.
