The Steel in Division 2 is used at the Crafting Station along with other materials to create Weapons and Mods.
“Crafting material that can be used when crafting sturdy firearms.
This material is valued by the True Sons.
Steel is common components in weapons since it is sturdy, reliable and has a relatively low cost.
Many lighter materials can’t handle the amount of stress and impacts that most weapons will experience.
A weapon barrel is expected to withstand immense pressure and heat from repeatedly firing the gun in combat, or risk catastrophic failure which might severely harm the user.“
The Division 2 Steel Locations
Similar to most materials, Steel can be obtained using various methods.
True Sons Gang Members
You can get Steel in Division 2 from the True Sons Faction members you kill. These enemies can be easily identified since they wear vests, bandanas, or helmets.
They are led by Antwon Ridgeway and you can find them in greater numbers around Capitol Hill.
Some True Sons Faction gang members, also drop Carbon Fiber. Here is a picture showing a dead True Son member who dropped Steel.
Looting the containers you encounter while exploring Washington D.C is another great way to get more Steel.
Always pay attention to the environment while playing the game’s missions and don’t miss the Supply Rooms at Control Points.
