EditHow Weapons Work

Weapons, like Armor, are divided by four types of rarity. Common (gray), Rare (blue), Epic (purple), and Legendary (gold). All weapons, except Legendary Weapons, are randomly generated and can be obtained by looting chests and enemies and completing quests. See how they differentiate in the chart below. 

Keep in mind you can level up any Weapon you’d like, which is well worth the trouble for pieces that give you buffs that match your playstyle. Check out  Engravings;to see what kind of buffs Weapons can have. 

Common Rare
Common Weapons provides only one buff and one slot for an Engraving Rare Weapons provide two buffs and one slot for an Engraving. 
Epic Legendary
Epic Weapons provide three buffs and one slot for an Engraving Legendary Weapons provide only three buffs, like Epic armor, however, these are usually superior by at least one percentage more than Epic armor. They also come with a special, Legendary buff that unlocks its Engraving. For example, you may find a weapon that increases the Sparta Kick Ability damage by 20%. 
 
Legendary Weapons cannot be bought or sold in stores. 

EditHow to Get Legendary Weapons

Legendary Weapons can only be obtained by completing certain tasks in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. These tasks range from completing certain quests-main or not-, defeating certain bespoke Mercenaries, and taking out certain targets as part of the story.
