Anthem: The Best Legendary And Masterwork Guns We've Found (So Far)

Much like other service-based games, Anthem has a bunch of different guns to get. There are six tiers of weapons: Common (white), Uncommon (green), Rare (blue), Epic (purple), Masterwork (orange), and Legendary (yellow). The most powerful guns to obtain are the last two tiers, which have fancy perks that enhance their capabilities.
You can only get Masterwork and Legendary guns by finding them out in the world on harder difficulties, which makes them rather tough to come by. You must be level 25 to gain access to a small pool of Masterwork drops on Hard difficulty. However, Masterwork and Legendary pool drops are available in full across the three Grandmaster difficulties, which are unlocked at level 30. Each tier of Grandmaster difficulty increases the chance of Masterwork and Legendary drops. Though, the game recommends you take these three difficulties on at Power Level 400, 475, and 500 respectively.

GameSpot gave Anthem a 6/10 with Reviews Editor Kallie Plagge saying, "Anthem has good ideas, but it struggles significantly with the execution. It's a co-op game that works best with no one talking; it buries genuinely interesting character moments and puts its most incomprehensible story bits at the forefront; its combat is exciting until you get to the boss fights and find your wings have been clipped. Even the simple, exhilarating act of flying is frequently interrupted by the limitations of your javelin, and you never quite shake that feeling of disappointment--of knowing, throughout the good parts of Anthem, that you'll inevitably come crashing back down."
