The Division 2 Shock Roach Field Research Guide – Unlocking Gunner Specialization

The Division 2 Shock Roach Field Research Guide

One of the requirements that you need to fulfill in order to unlock The Division 2 Gunner specialization is called “shock Roach twice before defeating him in Bank Headquarters”. Do note that Year-1 Pass holders don’t need to complete these Field Research missions (as the game calls them) since they’re automatically given access to the specialization. Here’s how you can complete The Division 2 Shock Roach Field Research to unlock the 4th specialization.

The Division 2 Shock Roach Field Research

In order to complete the said Field Research, the first thing that you need to do is to start the Bank Headquarters mission on any difficulty setting. Do note that the mission needs to be ‘Normal’ and not ‘Invaded’.

Once done, progress through the mission as normal until you get to Roach. However, after you get there, you’ll realize that there’s no Shock Ammo nearby. In order to find a Shock Ammo Box, reach the point where you come across an open area and look for a tall billboard advertising something related to medicine.

You should be able to locate the Ammo Box right next to it. Now, the important thing here is to swap to your sidearm (Pistol or Sawed-Off Shotgun) before restocking on the Shock Ammo. Don’t restock Shock Ammo on your Primary Weapon, otherwise, you’ll most probably fail the Field Research.

Once you’ve done so, swap to your sidearm and shoot Roach once in order to shock him. After that, use your Primary Weapon to clear the area of enemies and shoot Roach once more. While there’s no confirmation as to how long you should take between shooting Roach but to be on the safe side, try to wait somewhere between 5-10 seconds before shooting him again.

After you’re done, simply complete the mission and you’re done. However, one important thing to note that some players have reported a bug that doesn’t register two shocks, forcing you to start over. If that’s the case, you’re out of luck, sadly!
