Noob needs help please

When you go to equip a certain Item, the Stat box that appears under the already equipped item, is that the item your about to equip or your item your already wearing stats?

That box shows the stat changes that are “suppose” to happen if you equip the new item. I used “suppose” because the info it shows isn’t that reliable.

So if it shows up green it suppose to mean the weopon I’m about to equip is better?

yup

Thanks a lot for the help😊
