Cosmetics items are skins or accessories that can be applied to all Warframes (Excluding some Warframe-specific Auxiliary Cosmetics). These items include holographic badges, armor, helmets, Sigils, custom animations, and Syandana scarves. Some of them are available by default, others can be acquired through completing Events, through the Alerts system, syndicates, or purchased through the Market with Platinum.

All these items can be equipped in the Appearance page. Cosmetics whose names are italicized are no longer distributed or have limited distribution periods, typically due to them being distributed during events, part of a since-replaced Prime Access pack, or simply being seasonal offers.


Main article: Color Picker Extension

Warframes, weapons, sentinels, as well as the interior/exterior of ships can be customized with a variety of different color palettes. These palettes can be purchased in the Market.


Main article: Category:Helmet

Every Warframe can be equipped with alternate helmets aside from their default one. Although these helmets are purely cosmetic today, prior to Update 10.0 some of these helmets included slight changes to the Warframe's stats, and are labeled as Arcane Helmets (not to be confused with Arcane Enhancements) to differentiate them from their cosmetic counterparts. Alternative helmets can be acquired from the Market with Platinum or from Alerts in the form of Blueprints.


Skins alter the appearance of Warframes, including Prime Warframes, with special patterns and colors. With a few exceptions, their colors may be changed by changing the corresponding color slot on your Warframe's appearance. They are for cosmetic purposes only. These Warframe Skins can be bought at the Market for Platinum64‍ 40 each, or the first eight Skins that were released for Platinum64‍ 234 as part of the Immortal Skin Bundle.

Idle AnimationsEdit

Main article: Idle Animations

Every Warframe comes with a set of three custom idle animations: Default, Noble and Agile, which give the Warframe a unique idle stance depending on the animation and weapon type equipped. Occasionally, they will play a custom movement when the character stands still for a period of time. While all Warframe animations can be used between all Warframes, only animation sets native to a particular Warframe are available by default to that Warframe, and equipping an animation set from a different Warframe requires purchasing that animation for Platinum64‍ 50. Equinox's Day and Night animation sets cost Platinum64‍ 35 each.

Main article: Syandana

Syandana are cosmetic garments, worn on the back of the Warframe that feature cloth physics, swaying to the Warframe's movement. Some Warframe specific cosmetics, such as Mortos and Valkyr's Bonds, are now treated as auxiliary cosmetics (whereas they had once been treated as Syandanas) and may be equipped simultaneously with a Syandana. All Syandanas can be used by any Warframe. Syandanas can be recolored independently of the Warframe's colors under the Attachments section of the Appearance tab in the Arsenal, sharing their colors with Armor. A select few Syandanas have channeling patterns on them, though most Syandanas are unaffected by channeling. Some Syandanas, such as the Misa Prime and the Noru Prime were only available through certain Prime Access packs.

"Syandana" is a Sanskrit word स्यन्दन that can mean "flowing".


Main article: Armor (Cosmetic)

Armor are additional physical parts that can be attached to the Warframe's chest, shoulders and legs. Each individual part location - Chest, Left Shoulder, Right Shoulder, Left Leg and Right Leg - can be individually customized with a different part, allowing for a mixed variety of styles. Also, Armor can be recolored independently of the Warframe's colors under the Attachments section of the Appearance tab in the Arsenal, sharing their colors with Syandanas. Certain Warframes such as Banshee and Frost have preinstalled armor parts that can be replaced by these attachables. Armor have their own Channeling areas, and will glow when a Warframe is under the effects of Channeling.

Some armor such as the Edo chest piece will intermittently emit a translucent energy shield over the Warframe's chest, using the Warframe's energy color whenever sliding or taking damage. This is a purely cosmetic effect.

Auxiliary CosmeticsEdit

Main article: Armor (Cosmetic)#Auxiliary Cosmetics

These are miscellaneous Warframe cosmetic items, typically equipped on the face or head.



Regalia consist of Emblems and Sigils that display images of specific types of status or affiliations, such as Founders status, Clan affiliations and Events participation. Emblems can be equipped on either shoulder, and both shoulders can have the same emblem.


Main article: Sigils

Sigils are mainly Syndicate-related logos that can be displayed on a Warframe's body. Unlike other Regalia, Sigils can have their size, position and orientation customized. Wearing Sigils also allows a player to earn Standing with the Syndicate the Sigil represents.

Clan EmblemEdit

Main article: Clan Emblem
ClanEmblemHolo inv

This holographic badge displays the emblem of your Clan on a Warframe's right shoulder. It can only be acquired through the Market. Should an unallied Tenno bear this emblem, the badge will instead show a Lotus flower as seen to the right.

Event EmblemsEdit

Main article: Event Emblems

These badges can be acquired through participating in Events. The badge displays a holographic symbol of the specific event on either (or both) shoulder(s) of the Warframe. The player decides which side(s) to equip the emblem. As these events have concluded, their badges are no longer available.


3D emblems, typically obtained by competing Trials.

Skull BadgesEdit

These commemorative holographic badges were awarded to the top 1000 players in the now-retired Global Kill Leaderboard. They are no longer available.

Founder EmblemsEdit

These badges were given to any player who had purchased the Founders package. Each package provided a unique badge which displays a holographic image of the Founder type that the player is associated with.

With the closing of The Founders Pack, these are no longer available.
