The rares are one of the easiest to get. They’re quite a good find especially while you’re midway through a mission and you’re looking for a weapon to swap out of. These weapons drop a little more often than the Legendary and often appear in Decoherent Engrams. If players find themselves on an uncommon weapon or common weapon then, they should immediately switch it to a rare if they can. This is probably one of the best compromises since it has a higher drop rate.

The Uncommon Weapons are also easy to find. If you have a Common Weapon and you find an Uncommon then, best you replace it. In the long run, the Uncommon will definitely deal more damage. However, you’ll find yourself at a wit’s end if you’re fighting a boss like Irausk or Thumos. With both of them having high hitpoints, you will be needing better weapons.
