Rarity describes both the relative rarity of finding a particular item and is an expression of its quality. Each level has a name and color associated with it:

  • Handmade - Handmade
  • Common - Gray
  • Uncommon - Green
  • Rare - Blue
  • Epic - Purple
  • Legendary - Orange
  • Mythic - Gold


At base level, an Uncommon item will always be better than a Common item of the same type and a Rare item will always be better than an Uncommon one and so on.

Mythic Items[edit | edit source]

The Mythic 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 flavor text.

Mythic items are also only available in Save the World, with the single exception of the Infinity Gauntlet which was available in Battle Royale's Infinity Gauntlet LTM.

Perks of rarity[edit | edit source]

Each slot has specific available perks, excluding weapons with fixed perks.
