Attributes are what describes a weapon's capabilities or effects.

Weapon attributes


Main page: Grades System

The six grades are Common, Uncommon, Rare, Epic, Legendary, and Mythical. The higher the grade, the harder it is to obtain the weapon.

Weapon Level

Previously named "Efficiency", "Power Capacity" or "Lethality," it measures the performance of a weapon, based on DPS. The maximum level of your weapon is your user level.

Fire Rate

The higher the rate of fire, the faster it shoots. As a benchmark, a fire rate of 99 indicates 8 rounds per second.


The capacity shows how many rounds a magazine can hold. The melee that only has capacity is Disconnector


The higher the mobility, the faster the player moves. This was formerly called Weight, where the numbers are smaller. Even before that, it was called Mobility. As a benchmark, a mobility of 90 is equivalent to 130 of the (old) mobility and 100 is equal to 90.


Exclusive to melee weapons. The higher the Attack stat, the faster it swings.
