[Top 10] The Division 2 Best DPS Weapons

Division 2 DPS weapons
Ten of the best DPS weapons in The Division 2.


DPS, or damage per second, is the average damage a weapon does in over a full second. 

Depending on the weapon and the type of player, it is better to have high DPS and lower reload speeds for weapon types like marksman rifles/snipers.

The formula works for automatics where it is better to have a lower DPS which could help increase Mag count.

Looking for weapons that would benefit the most with high DPS can be difficult at times, and the initial thought may be that having high DPS on all weapon types is the way to go. 

Well, we will be going over some of the weapons that will perform the best with high DPS.

One of the best ways to test your DPS is going to the firing range which is located in the White House.
