Anthem Guide: Complete List Of All Masterwork And Legendary Items

Anthem is all about loot. There are a number of fair criticisms of Anthem that suggest it doesn't do enough with that concept, and up until the end-game grind, that's mostly true. A looter shooter is only as good as the shiny orbs of various colors that enemies explode into. While Anthem takes a long time to get there, once players begin crafting Masterwork variants of their favorite gun, weapons begin to feel like they have the character we've come to associate with the genre.

Though you wouldn't know it by playing through Anthem's early game, BioWare's shooter actually has a pretty big loot pool. It just takes a long time for players to wade into the deep end, and the shallow waters feel lackluster. Getting to the end-game is one thing, but figuring out exactly which weapons and gear a Freelancer should take into a fight is another.

Luckily, there's a list of all of Anthem's Masterwork and Legendary loot right here. First, credit where credit is due: Reddit users KrystallAnn and wykk put together the original list, available HERE. We'll break things down by broadly available weapons and then Javelin-specific items, with their non-upgraded names in brackets beside them. By the end of the list, players will know what they're looking for and what it does in terms of special perks, with the hope that everyone finds their ideal loadout ahead of Anthem's post-launch plans.
