All Borderlands games use a ranking system for gear that follows the standard color-coding system for RPGs. A (white) gun would be average, (green) would be slightly above average, (blue) would be a premium gun, a (purple) would be a high tier / strong gun, and (orange) guns are second only to pearlescent (Borderlands) or Seraph (Borderlands 2) or Top-Tier (Borderlands 3)
