Rarity indicates how rare a particular weapon, armor piece, shader, emblem, Ghost, or jumpship is. Generally, the rarer a weapon or armor piece is, the more powerful it is.[1] There are five levels of rarity, each distinguishable by the color of the item icon background:[1]

  1. Basic (white)
  2. Uncommon (green)
  3. Rare (blue)
  4. Legendary (purple)
  5. Exotic (gold)

Though players may carry as many exotic items as they like in their inventory, only one exotic armor piece and one exotic weapon may be equipped at the same time.[1]
