The Power of Nemesis

Each exotic comes with its own set of perks. The Nemesis has three perks to complement its already strong characteristics. These advantages contribute to the Nemesis being one of the best sniper builds in The Division 2. The Nemesis Sniper comes with the following perks:


The shots fired will deal between 0 and 100% weapon damage, depending on how long the trigger is held down before the shot is released. The time it will take to reach the maximum damage output will be reduced each time a shot doesn’t kill an enemy that it hits.


Aiming at an enemy marks them as your nemesis for 15s, letting you see them through walls. Your shots gain +5% damage to your nemesis for each second they are marked, to a max of 50%.


While holstered, gain: +25% headshot damage when scoped with your current weapon.

The scope must be completed first in order to acquire the remaining three. It may be found by disassembling the Adrastea SR-1 in Tidal Basin.

Since 1995, I have had an inseparable relationship with mobile games. More recently, my goal has been to bridge the gap between skill and critical thinking in video games. You don't have to be the best all the time to be the best. I'm here to prove it! I like competitive and casual, mobile and console and everything in between. World of Warcraft, League of Legends, Call of Duty and Apex are my current favorite games. Oh, did I mention that I love LEGO Star Wars games!
