Rarity is an arbitrary property that applies to all items, vehicles, cosmetics, and skins. The feature has no impact on actual gameplay, although it can be reflective of an item's value, usefulness, or acquirement. For Steam Economy items, it also represents how the economy item is acquired, and the amount of crafting materials obtained by scrapping the economy item.

The rarity is typically a prefix to the item's context type. Economy items that were community-made and curated are additionally prefixed to the economy item's context type, but ahead of the rarity.

In-game rarities

When no rarity value is specified in the game code, the item or vehicle will default to common rarity.

Steam Economy rarities

For Steam Economy items, the in-game item rarity mechanic is instead used to represent item quality. An item's rarity will typically correspond to the item's method of acquirement. Steam Economy items have a few additional rarities compared to the normal in-game rarities.

Removed rarities

There used to be a number of Steam Economy items that did not have a named rarity. Instead, they only had a unique color assigned to them. These were eventually removed, and the affected items were changed to use a named rarity instead.

Colors of unnamed rarities
#FF7F00 #FF0000 #909090 #00FFFF #AA6125 #BBBBBB #379C9B
#B2B2B2 #6441A5 #D78B1E #9A3E97 #FFFFFF #FFED00


  • Mythical rarity was originally reserved for Steam Economy items with a mythical effect, but has since been introduced for in-game playable content.
