How to equip a red sword

I have a hunter and got a red sword but it wont let me equip it. The sword is way better then the one i have on right now

@DemonicFang1614 You have to have enough stats to satisfy the equip requirement. Attack (melee,ranged or tech) Defense (melee,ranged or tech) or Dex. It goes off your base stats which will be listed right next to the requirement on the weapon card.
