higher level guns and fishing rods make it easier to find items that have a higher rarity rating.
in your inventory there’s a number next to every item to indicate how many of those items you have, in the case for guns and fishing rods, this number is used to indicate how many times you can hunt / fish before you need to find more guns / fishing rods from crates.
