Though, the Infinity Gauntlet has been put into Infinity Gauntlet LTM and the Infinity Blade after it being vaulted, has been put into the Sword Fight LTM.

Each rarity has specific available benefits, excluding weapons with fixed benefits. The family rarity is a separate tier from the standard common to legendary progression. Every Mythic hero does not have a lower tier, and Mythic lead Survivors are classified in the Collection Book as "Unique Leads". Unlike the rest of the leads, they have a name and a small flavour text.
