Tech Wing: Activation, Skills and Tech Supplies

Tech Wing is one of 3 wings in Base of Operations in The Division. It allows to access new Tech skills and perks. You need to pay attention to upgrading this wing if you wish to be good damage dealer.

Tech Wing Upgrades

As other 2 wings it is disabled by default in the beginning. When you visit Base of operations for the first time it will be in offline mode. You will have to complete special mission in order to activate it. This mission is called Subway Morgue. The objective there is to find and save Paul Rhodes. He is an engineer and he will bring your Tech Wing online.

Reasons to Upgrade

As you know there are a lot of locked abilities and perks in the Division. When you start playing the game you can’t use all the skills and mods. You need to upgrade your Base of Operations in order to unlock them. Tech Wing upgrades give you access to new attacking abilities and skill mods.

All the updates also unlock new perks! Perks are important because they give permanent bonuses to your character and you don’t need to trigger them.

There are possible 10 upgrades. The list below contains all the upgrades with the advantages they give:

Tech Supplies

You need to pay special fee in order to purchase an upgrade. But this fee is not in Division Dollars or Dark Zone Funds. You need to spend Tech Supplies for this. You can earn this currency by completing Tech Missions and Tech Encounters. It’s the only way to receive this currency, so if you wish to progress this wing you will have to participate in these missions.

Where to find these missions? Open your map. They will be marked with special icons. You can also use situation reports in Base of Operations to find out what’s going around. There are also special boards in the game which also give you actual information about what’s happening in different districts.

Pay Attention: Tech Supplies is an exclusive currency used for purchasing Tech Wing upgrades only! You can’t spend it in order to upgrade Medical or Security Wings.

What upgrades to buy first? There is no strict order. The first upgrade is Control Room and you will have to begin with it. But all further upgrades don’t have order. Some of the updates have requirements so keep this in mind. If you don’t know what section to purchase look through the list of the skills and bonuses each section grants. If you like to use Sticky Bombs purchase Generators update which unlocks 3 cool mods for Sticky Bombs.
