Rarity in BR[]

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 also usually tend to use innovative mechanics such as the Infinity Gauntlet's attacks, Amban Rifle's taser, Batarang's aimbot and etc. Exotic Items are ordinary weapons with perks added to them such as enemy tracking, thermal vision, burst shots and etc.

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.

Rarity in StW[]

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.
