Gear will have levels – just as your character – during the leveling process of your character during both the base game's and the expansion's main campaign. The base game's campaign goes from level 1 to 30, the expansion's campaign then goes from level 30 to 40.
Only upon reaching the base game's endgame – the World Tiers – gear will have Gear Score measuring its quality. That's because throughout the World Tiers (from 1 to 5) your character doesn't level up anymore, while your gear does get better from World Tier to World Tier. Thus the Gear Score system only happens for level 30 gear, which your level 30 agent can use while playing in World Tier 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5.
Once you start Warlords of New York, your character will start to level up again. That's why you will then again find gear according to your agent's level – 31 to 40. As soon as you will have your agent's level maxed out (at 40), every gear will also be level 40.
