In The Division 2, you get to choose different skills and unlock one of eight skills.
One of it is the turret, and even then, there are different types of turrets.
Here’s a brief guide on how to use turrets in The Division 2.
How to unlock the turret
You can only unlock the turret when you have at least 1 skill point and 1 SHD Tech.
A skill point will be available to you pretty early on in the mission, possibly after you’ve completed Dawn’s Early Light.
Once you have the skill point and SHD Tech, get to your inventory and click on the skills.
Choose the first option which is the turret. This unlocks only the basic version.
If you wish to get other versions, you probably need at least 5 SHD Tech.
How to use the turret
For the basic turret, you just have to throw it on the ground and let it do the work for you.
If you have other types of mods, like the sniper mod or the flamethrower mod, you may need to do it manually.
For e.g. the sniper mod requires you to manually pick the enemies after you’ve assembled the turret.
If you’re using the PC, while aiming, press “E” at the enemy to target him. The sniper turret will then shoot at the enemy.
To close the turret before you get to the next area, just hold “E” at the turret to do so. In other words, hold the same button you used to spawn it.
