Gear Sets are unique combinations of gear pieces that an Agent can obtain. Every Gear Set revolves around a specific theme and can strongly influence a player's overall playstyle. Gear sets can be obtained with a gear score of 163, 182, 204, 229 or 256, depending on World Tier.
Unlike High-Ends, each piece of a Gear Set does not have a specific Talent associated with them. Instead, once a certain number of pieces of one Gear Set is equipped, you obtain various Set Bonuses; a standard Gear Set provides all its bonuses when four pieces are equipped. Currently, there are fourteen Gear Sets in-game.
Update 1.7 introduced Classified Gear Sets to the game. These improved versions of the standard Gear Sets (flagged with a small file icon on the item's banner) have greater minimum and maximum stat rolls than the standard sets and provide exclusive 5-piece and 6-piece set bonuses for even more specialized builds; also, a Classified Gear Set piece can have two different stats recalibrated per piece, instead of just one with the standard sets. A player must collect the full Classified Gear Set to use the unique bonuses; they cannot mix-and-match between standard pieces and Classified pieces.

Weapon Gear Sets
Weapon Gear Sets operate on the same principle as armor Gear Sets, only that they apply to specific pairs of Exotic weapons. The weapons that are part of these sets function the same as High-End weapons (with the exception of The Devil's Heel), except that they have an additional, unique two-piece set bonus that is only active when both weapons are equipped at the same time; these Weapon Gear Sets are typically named for these two-set bonuses.
As of Update 1.8, there are three Weapon Gear Sets in the game:
- Valkyria - Twin sister submachine guns with Norse blood in their veins; one sister provides boosted critical hit damage that can only be used by the other sister
- Free Republic - An assault rifle & pistol tag team that work together to protect the homefront; the assault rifle provides a rolling boost to the pistol's next headshot damage, and any kills with the pistol provides a temporary rate of fire boost to all equipped weapons
