How Do Weapons Work in The Division?
You can equip a primary weapon, a secondary weapon and a pistol, and the Weapons
in these sub-categories all have individual stats designed to complement different play styles, like accuracy, range, and stability. Every parameter contributes to your damage per second (DPS), which you can view in the Inventory menu. You can also apply Mods
to weapons. Mods grant additional perks to your weapons that improve some of its characteristics, like accuracy, giving extra life to weapons that might not seem all that useful initially.
