Starfield:Weapon Rarity



Starfield Weapons Category.webp

In Starfield, the weapon and armor sets have different rarity levels like: Rare, Epic, Legendary. Each of these levels comes with several possible special effects listed in the table below.

These effects are randomised when you find the weapon or armor. You can keep reloading to before you picked up or killed an enemy wielding a legendary weapon or armor set until you get the legendary effects that best match your character build. However, uniquely named weapons always have fixed effects that cannot be altered.

The difficulty you play on will increase your chance of obtaining legendary weapons and armor sets by 0.5% on Hard difficulty and 1% on Very Hard difficulty.
