Rarity in BR[edit | edit source]

Order (Weakest to Strongest):Common < Uncommon < Rare < Epic < Legendary < Mythic < Exotic Weirdly, each rarity between Common& Legendary can increase the damage, reload time & magazine size. However, Mythic can alter fire rate and other stats that previous rarities doesn't.

Mythic items were mostly only available in Save the World, with the exception of the Mythic Weapons that were introduced in Chapter 2: Season 2 and more added in Chapter2: Season 3, for example Skye's Assault Rifle, Ocean's Bottomless Chug Jug & more... The Infinity Gauntlet, Infinity Blade & other collaboration items, which were available in Chapter 1, were the only Mythic items in Chapter 1. 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.

  • With the Release of Chapter 2 Season 5 a New Exotic rarity was added with weapons that have Special Properties compared to a Normal weapon (and even stranger than Mythic)

These are usualy Sold by NPCs at around 1225 Bars. There are currently 5 Exotic weapons: Explosive heavy Sniper rifle Storm Scout Sniper "The Dub" A Double Barreled Shotgun With Flint Knock Knock back. Thermal Scoped Revolver Suppressed Pistol

Rarity in StW[edit | edit source]

Main article: Weapon Perks

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.
