Weapons/Armor Traits vs Survivor traits

So uncommon survivors have two traits you can unlock with upgrades
Rare & Epic have 3
Legendary have 4.
Seems like Legendary should have 5 traits and Epic should have 4.

So why aren't the weapons and armor the same? Shouldn't legendary armor/weapons have way more traits than uncommon and rare?

    Rookie question: What traits do they have to start with before any additional traits are unlocked?

    @dale They don't. You have to upgrade to unlock traits.

    HIgher damage for a weapon, higher defense for armor.

    Sorry to be dense here but same what?

    How is a Level 7 epic hunter with no upgrades better than a Level 6 epic hunter with no upgrades?

    How is a Level 6 epic hunter with no upgrades better than a Level 6 rare hunter with no upgrades?

    I know I've been here for a couple of weeks but I'm still kinda stumbling around in some ways.

    A level 7 has higher damage and health than a level 6.

    Epic and legendaries have better rarity trait. Legendary got more gold trait.
