Apex Legends Rarity Types - Weapon and Character Skin Rarity Levels in Apex Legends

Here's our complete guide to item, characters skins, and weapon rarity levels in Apex Legends.

To help you determine which items are clearly better than others, Apex Legends features a color-coded rarity system for items. In this Apex Legends rarity levels guide, we'll be compiling all the information that you need to know about the scale on which items are judged.

The debut season of Apex Legends is almost here, after much speculation and anticipation. For all the information you need on the first seasonal event of Respawn's game, check out our full Apex Legends Season 1 guide.

Apex Legends Rarity Levels

There are four levels of item rarity in Apex Legends: common, rare, epic, and legendary. You can only obtain rare, epic, and legendary items in Apex Packs, which are obtained through levelling up, and 'common' grade items like weapon skins can be unlocked through simply playing the game. Just below, we've put together a table, detailing the rarity levels of every single obtainable item in Apex Legends.

  • Weapon Skins - Common, Rare, Epic, Legendary.
  • Legend Skins - Common, Rare, Epic, Legendary.
  • Legend Finishers - Legend.
  • Banner Frames - Common, Rare, Legendary.
  • Banner Poses - Rare, Epic.
  • Banner Stat Trackers - Common, Rare.
  • Intro Quips - Common, Rare.
  • Kill Quips - Common.
  • Crafting Metal - Common, Rare, Epic, Legendary.

The 'common' type of rarity in Apex Legends is represented by the color gray, and you're always guaranteed to find a few common items wherever you land on the King's Canyon map. Rare items are represented by blue, and can be found in mid-tier loot points on the map, as well as Apex Packs. Finally, Epic and Legendary are represented by purple and gold, respectively, and are the best type of items you can find in the game. Basically, whenever you see a purple or gold item, be sure to make room for it in your inventory.

So what's the big deal about Epic and Legendary gear? As Respawn's own designer reveals below, there's actually benefits to be gained from finding certain Legendary gear in Apex Legends:

All of the items that we've listed out above can be found within Apex Packs. These packs can either be earned through acquiring XP and levelling up, or by purchasing them using Apex Coins, the microtransaction currency of the game. If you need a guide on the packs themselves, or the currency, head over to our Apex Legends Packs guide. We've also got a guide to all of the Apex Legends Guns.
