The majority of items in Team Fortress 2 have an associated Item level. This level is purely cosmetic and can be anywhere between 0 and 100 inclusive. Different types of items will have different levels, with items considered more "rare" usually having a higher level. At one point, dropped weapons were given a random level, but that was removed in a patch. So far, there are seven different types of items:

  • Normal weapons are all level 1, which can be observed in-game by clicking the box labeled 'Show Stock Items' located in the backpack
  • Unlocked or dropped weapons are usually level 1, 5, 7, 8, 10 and 15, though there is no difference between levels.
  • All promotional/special event Miscellaneous items are level 5, 10, 15 or 20, with the higher levels associated with more prestigious badges.
