Item tier.png Weapon Tier Level

Starfield has four weapon tier levels: Base, Calibrated, Refined, Advanced (in ascending order). The higher the tier, the better the damage of the weapon. As you level up, your chances of finding higher tier weapons increase, defeating higher level enemies will also increase the drop chance of best weapons. Note that superior weapons do exist, but they are incorrectly named as advanced weapons despite dealing more damage.

Unique Weapons in Starfield scale in base damage depending on their weapon tier level (Base, Calibrated, Refined, Advanced), but they keep the same unique name without any prefixes being added. You can find out more information on how to get the best version of each unique weapon you come across on the unique weapon tier system page.
