Attributes, which can also be called Properties or Abilities, are what describes a weapon's capabilities or effects.
Main page: Grades System
The six grades are Common, Uncommon, Rare, Epic, Legendary, and Mythical. The higher the grade, the harder it is to obtain the weapon.
Previously named "Weapon Level" or "Lethality," Efficiency measures the performance of a weapon. The maximum upgradeable level of your weapon is your current level, and at level 65 the maximum efficiency for most weapons is 423.
Represents the rate at which the weapon shoots. Strangely, the actual fire rate does not follow linearly with the listed number, as shown in the graph to the right.
The capacity shows how many rounds a magazine can hold. The only melee that has capacity is the Disconnector.
The higher the mobility, the faster the player moves. This was formerly called Weight, where the numbers are smaller. Even before that, it was called Mobility. As a benchmark, mobility of 90 is equivalent to 130 of the (old) mobility and 100 is equal to 90.
Exclusive to melee weapons. The higher this stat, the faster it swings.
Main page: Silent
Gives weapons a suppressor that drastically reduces noise while firing. It does not completely block the sound of the weapon shooting, though.
Main page: Wall Break
Allows the weapon to shoot through walls with damage reduction if a player is hit through a wall (The Portalius Set, however, can negate this damage reduction if equipped).
Main page: Scoped
Gives the weapon a scope that makes long-range combat easier. There are different zoom levels depending on the weapon (e.g. 2x, 4x, 10x).
Main page: Area Damage
The weapon can cause damage in an area around the point of impact. How large the affected area depends on the weapon, and certain weapons with this attribute can not give headshots.
Main page: For Sandbox
This weapon can be equipped in the Sandbox game mode.
Main page: Piercing Shot
Shots from weapons with this attribute can go through multiple entities (players, monsters, or pets), although the damage is reduced for each pierced target.
Main page: Shotgun
Weapons are a shotgun, which fires multiple bullets in a spread pattern. After the shotgun rework in update 21.2, 1 bullet is enough to cause 100% damage and it doesn't stack, but deals less from long distances.
Main page: Automatic
Holding down the fire button for this weapon fires continuously as long the trigger is held or the weapon runs out of ammo.
Main page: Single Shot

Main page: Multiple Shots
Pressing the fire button will fire a burst of bullets/projectiles and consume one ammo.
Main page: Ricochet
The weapon's projectile or bullet will bounce off surfaces. Not to be confused with the Ricochet killstreak in which you get when you get a reflected kill when using the Reflector.
Main page: Laser

Main page: Homing Missile
This means that weapons or gadgets with this attribute will shoot low-speed projectiles that follow players and monsters until they make contact and deal damage.
Main page: Charge Shot
These weapons require charging by holding down the fire button. The longer you charge, the more damage the projectile/weapon will inflict. A fully charged shot usually does significantly more damage than a partially charged shot. Some weapons require a full charge for special effects, while others can fire at any charge.
Main page: Chain Damage
The weapon fires projectiles that will hit multiple targets if they are close together (note that this is not a form of area damage).
