I know that the color of the loot signifies the rarity of that piece of loot but I don't know is the order. What is the order from rarest to common?

Yeah, Borderlands follow the standard color-coding system for RPGs. Here.

  • Level 1 = White, rarity = 0-4.
  • Level 2 = Green, rarity = 5-10.
  • Level 3 = Blue, rarity = 11-15.
  • Level 4 = Purple, rarity = 16-49.
  • Level 5 = Light Orange, rarity = 50-60.
  • Level 6 = Orange, rarity = 61-65.
  • Level 7 = Dark Orange, rarity = 66-100.
  • Level 8 = Pearlescent, rarity = 101+.

Source, and another one.

  • Let me start by citing the specific situation that prompted this question. Early in the 1st Borderlands (limited carrying capacity) I had to choose between 2 sniper rifles the first had 198 damage, but 4x Explosive Element Effect; the second had 247 damage AND triple the fire rate. I've looked online but can't find any tables or explinations of the damage value of any of the elemental effects (including increased chances i.e. 1x 2x etc.)

  • If you have trouble remembering : When Grandma Burps Patrick Obeys (White Green Blue Purple Orange) and after that, Seraph Then Pearlescent
