The Division 1.2 update: New gear sets detailed

The Division 1.2 update is introducing some big changes to the game, like Hijack Extractions and new mission types, but more importantly, there are four new gear sets that are designed to affect your play style as well as bolstering your stats.

The first set is Hunter’s Faith, for those who prefer long range combat. Lone Star is a DPS gear set, while Final Measure is a set geared for defense. The last set is Predator’s Mark, a new support set.

Details on the sets are below. Which of these takes your fancy?
