Do you play 7 Days to Die? Have you ever wondered what the numbers on items represent?
If you’re not sure what they represent, our gamers are here to explain! Here, we’ll detail what those numbers mean and how they can help you in the game. Keep reading to find out.
What Does the Number Represent on Items?
The number represents the item’s quality, which ranges from 25 to 600, and is color coded accordingly: gray, orange, yellow, green, and blue-purple.
You’ll find and create good items when your crafting skills improve or your scavenging skills improve. Quality is a value that indicates the craftsmanship level of a tool, weapon, or armor.
This is not to be confused with Tool and Weapon Tiers, which differentiate items based on the materials used in their production.
A different item icon indicates a different Tier. Quality varies according to color. Its values are applied inside Tiers, thus a high-quality weapon or tool may have greater stats (particularly when Mods are taken into account) than a higher-tier item.
Quality levels give fixed improvements to an item’s stats, although stats are always subject to randomness. To illustrate, two distinct Q5 Iron Fireaxes may have somewhat different basic stat values, implying that you should compare items you find to what you already have, even if the quality level is the same.
The following item stats are determined by an item’s quality.
In terms of durability, items will ultimately degrade to the point where repairing them is a waste of time and more efficient to replace them.
The lower the quality, the less damage it does, the more time it takes to harvest, and so on.
