- Common: These items are neither positive nor negative and typically have no conditions.
- Common: These items typically have one minor positive condition.
- Good: These items typically have one major or two minor positive conditions.
- Superior: These items have one major and one minor positive condition.
- Chainsaws are able to be Superior with only the Quality weapon condition.

- Elite: These items have two major positive conditions.
- Infamous: These crafted exclusive items have special names and big bonuses.
- Unique: These items have unique names and bigger bonuses.
