Top 5 Best Gear Sets of the The Division 2

Once a player hits endgame in Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 it becomes imperative to start looking towards acquiring gear sets. 

There six gears sets in total so far: True Patriot, Ongoing Directive, Hard Wired, Aces & Eights, Tip of the Spear, and Negotiator's Dilemma. 

While they are all very valuable in their own rights, there are few of them that are more favored due to the buffs that they offer along with their specificity towards the player.
