In both Save the World and Battle Royale, rarity is a classification of traps, weapons, survivors, and heroes depending on how powerful and rare they are in-game. For cosmetics, rarity represents their uniqueness and creativity put into them. It may also represent the series they are included in (cosmetics only).

Tips

  • STW: Generally it's better to use the higher rarity of an item as it'll have more bonus skills available. However, higher rarity items will take longer to craft and generally require more crafting components to make.
  • BR: In Chapter 2: Season 1, most weapons range from Common to Legendary. In Chapter 2: Season 2 however, more Mythic weapons were introduced. 
  • BR: It is possible to change the rarity of your gun (if any) by using materials on an Upgrade Bench.
  • Cosmetics: Rarity does not matter and does not give any competitive advantage although some skins allow you to blend in with the environment.
