The Division 2 Savage Wolverine Assault Rifle Guide

The latest TU for the Division 2 has added a named variant of the high-end Assault Rifle, Honey Badger. Called the Savage Wolverine, the high-end Assault Rifle absolutely shreds at close-range and is currently one of the best Assault Rifles in Division 2. Unlocking the Savage Wolverine requires the players to complete multiple steps, which are detailed in the guide.

The Division 2 Savage Wolverine Unlock

Savage Wolverine in the Division 2 rolls with a unique Talent called Perfectly Close & Personal, which lets the players deal +50% damage for 10 seconds after killing a target within 10 meters. The buff refreshes after each kill, making it one of the best ARs alongside Eagle Bearer and Chameleon.
