Crafting in The Division 2

QUESTION:

How does crafting work in The Division 2?

ANSWER:


Crafting is an important skill to master in these tough times.

To start crafting items, you will need to gather two things:

Blueprints can be discovered through a multitude of activities such as weekly projects, defeating control points, purchasing them directly from vendors, etc.

Materials can be scavenged, found at control points, living world activities, projects and boos loot.
Deconstructing unwanted equipment is also an effective way to acquire base materials. 

Crafting is a great way to discover new playstyles and acquire higher quality items before they drop naturally in the open world, or fill out equipment slots that are lagging behind in power. It is also the main way for you to get your hands on weapon mods


Crafting an item
 
All items can be crafted through the Crafting Station located in the Base of Operations.

You can upgrade the Crafting Bench in order to craft higher quality items. To do that:

Head to the Crafting Station and open its dedicated screen. The Crafting Bench Upgrade status will be indicated on the left side of the screen.
