I found some light color green gear. Like is that the best gear or something?

What color is the best gear?

  • If you're asking for specific items, we're going to end up closing this as opinion-based. If you're asking what the color means, which is what the first answer is telling you and what I suspect you're asking, then that's fine, but we'll want to rephrase the question.

The item categorizing goes in this order according to :


White < Green < Blue < Purple < Yellow < Teal

Yellow items in Tom Clancy's The Division

Yellow items are 'high–end', and basically only dropped by bosses. They're like the highest quality bits of kit ever. Worth selling your entire family. That kind of thing.

The final color—teal—represent Gear Set items that were added in one of the patches and contain special abilities that stack with items from the same set. High End and Gear Set items are kind of on par with each other giving a trade-off of abilities.

    Hey Kartyr, I just changed the symbols on your ordering there to less-than symbols. You had greater-than symbols, indicating white was better than the others. Sep 30, 2016 at 13:10
  • Yeah, I'm always using less than to mean "You better go that way". It's better this way ^.^

  • Ryan is that like paint jobs on your weapons those are the light blue color Oct 3, 2016 at 17:07
  • @Robert__garnet The cyan cosmetic items are clothing and may include weapon skins if those actually drop that way. I think those are only available from vendors and as mission rewards that don't drop on the ground. May 23, 2017 at 22:30
