"Hmmm, have a gander at this little beauty."
The Sniper on the quality of his gear.

Quality is a property of items, which is represented in-game by the color of the item's name and (in most cases) by a title prefixed to the item's name. An item can have only one quality, which is determined when the item is created and remains unchanged, except in rare circumstances.

Quality is a purely cosmetic property, and has no effect on gameplay other than some additional on-screen messages - these messages usually relay succeeded operations with an item.
