Call of Duty World War 2 - Divisions Guide

Learn about each of the Division skills and training perks in Call of Duty: World War 2.

During E3, Activision gave players their first look at how classes work in Call of Duty: World War 2. Sledgehammer Games has replaced the multiplayer Create-a-Class system with a new feature called Divisions, which gives players a new way to build their multiplayer loadouts. This guide offers a quick breakdown of each Division and how the new classes work in Call of Duty: World War 2. 

Call of Duty WW2 Divisions

There are five multiplayer Divisions in Call of Duty: World War 2.

There are five unique multiplayer Divisions in Call of Duty: WW2. Each Division represents a sort of player class archetype, each with their own weapons and abilities. Players can still customize their loadouts, but the types of weapons and skills available will depend on which Division the player selected.

Each Division consists of its own Division Skills, Division Training, and Basic Training perks, which are similar to loadout perks used in previous Call of Duty games. Division Skills and Division Training attributes are specific to that Division, while Basic Training perks come in multiple variations and can be interchanged. Every Division has at least two Basic Training perks to choose from. For example, the Infantry Division can have either the Steady or Hunker Basic Training perks paired with the same Division Skill and Training and customizable weapons.
