Equipment classes | Equipment Destiny 2 Guide

Equipment can be divided into five classes which can be easily distinguished by their background color. Classes are for both weapons and armor. Usually, a color determines item's rarity and the best ones (legendary and Exotic) guarantees you additional skills called "perks" or are passive and increase your character's stats.

There are different equipment classes - the highest of them, Exotic, has gold color - Equipment classes | Equipment - Equipment - Destiny 2 Game Guide

It all depends on which type of equipment we want to discuss - armor or weapons: in weapons, perks usually grant you modified attachments such as scopes or a magazine - sometimes you can, for free, change your weapon's parameters as many times as you want. It is worth to know: gold equipment elements can often absorb other common ones and get their Power. Thanks to that you can prolong the use of that piece when other elements of your equipment are on higher level than the gold one.

Weapon classification:

  1. Without a background (white) - common and simple, they give you only one perk. What you get for dismantling: 25 glimmer.
  2. Green - uncommon, they give you up to two perks. What you get for dismantling: 50 glimmer.
  3. Blue - rare, they give you up to three perks. What you get for dismantling: 100 glimmer, 1 Weapon part.
  4. Purple - legendary items, you can usually find them when you are close to or after completing the story. They give you up to three perks. What you get for dismantling: 2 Legendary Shards, 3 Weapon parts.
