Where to get?

As you know there are several ways of getting High-end weapon in The Division: buy, loot from bosses or craft.

  • Purchasing: I don’t have information about if it’s possible to buy this weapon from any vendor in the dame. Maybe it’s possible but keep in mind that assortment of any vendor refreshes regularly. So you will have to wait. The second reason to avoid purchasing is that you will most likely buy Vector 45 ACP with average stats.  That’s because of crafting randomness. Vendors don’t sell perfect weapon every time. Chances to purchase great item are small.
  • Looting: It’s not the best idea to try to loot this weapon from bosses. It will take a lot of time and maybe you will never receive it as a drop. Moreover, even if you succeed the chance of receiving weapon with best possible characteristics are low.
  • Crafting: it’s the best possible way of getting Vector. The reason for this: you will be able to use blueprint many times until you get what you exactly need: best weapon with the best stats and talents. You will have to recraft it many times but the result will definitely satisfy you.


The fastest way of getting Vector 45 ACP blueprint is to buy it from Special Gear Vendor at the Base of Operations. He is located in Tech Wing.

Requirements: you need to be level 30 in order to purchase this blueprint. It will cost you 154 Phoenix Credits. This is end-game currency. If you know nothing about this read our guide: The Division Phoenix Credits: Farming and Tips.

    Valkyria is one of named weapons in The Division. It is a good choice for skill orientated builds. But though this gun is tough to obtain, it’s not the best SMG.
