Rarity is a property of cosmetic items. It is represented in-game by the item's color theme.

Rarity is a purely cosmetic property, and has no effect on gameplay.

General Information[edit]

  • Items have both a Rarity and a Quality value.
  • In general, rarer items tend to have more customizations.
  • The rarity of items that can drop is dependent on the player's Profile Level.
    • Lower rarity items drop more frequently than higher rarity items.
    • This system was implemented to reduce item farming by bots.
  • Rarity does not determine whether or not an item is tradeable or marketable, Quality does.
  • Under rare circumstances, an item's rarity can be changed by Valve.
