The Complete Firefall Warpaints Guide

The Complete Firefall Warpaints Guide

In Firefall warpaints are the main means of customising the appearance of your battleframes, and you can get them in a number of ways. In our Complete Firefall Warpaints Guide we’ll take a look at all the warpaints and where they come from.

Updated: 1 March for Patch 0.8.1744 with all current warpaints and frames!

How to Apply a Warpaint

To apply a warpaint to your battleframe, open up the Garage and select the frame you want. Use the button on the right hand side to enter the Paint Shop, and you’ll see an option to change Frame Warpaint. Seelct this, and you’ll be presented with a list of warpaints to choose from. Some might have a Red Bean cost associated with them. The warpaint you select will be previewed on your frame in the garage, but it won’t be applied until you hit the Confirm button in the top left. If the warpaint costs Red Beans, the Confirm button will also deduct the cost from your Red Bean total.

Red Bean warpaints are now permanent purchases — once you buy it once, you’ll be able to reapply it for free to any frame you own. (This is a new feature; Red Bean warpaints used to be one-off purchases.) As well as unlocking them through the Garage’s Paint Shop, you can also buy Red Bean warpaints from the new Red Bean store — hit Escape and select the “Store” button at the top of the screen.

Visual Kit Warpaints

These warpaints are available as part of Visual Kits, which are prizes from the Red Bean lottery terminals. Each Visual Kit includes a warpaint, decal and title, and is themed around a Holmgang team. These Visual Kits can also be sold on and purchased from the marketplace, provided they’re unused. To use one of these warpaints after you’ve acquired the Visual Kit, you’ll need to select the Kit from your calldowns menu and use it from your #5 ability slot. This will add the warpaint, decal and title as options for your character, although you may need to relog to see them in your garage’s Paint Shop.

Note that some Visual Kits come from using Accord lottery tokens, while others are from the Omnidyne range. Make sure you’re using the right token for the kit you want! (There are no warpaints available from Kisuton tokens.)

Progession Warpaints

These warpaints are unlocked by maxing out different battleframes. Unlocking a frame’s constraints to 10 Mass, 10 Power and 10 CPU will unlock that frame’s default warpaint and allow it to be used on any other frame. This can create some very impressive looks, as many of the default warpaints look very different on other frames.

Although this warpaint looks similar to many of the red warpaints available, this is a Red5-only warpaint. If you see someone rocking this paint, they’re probably a dev, so be kind! (Their families are watching.)

 

The Effect of Armor Patterns

Armor patterns are another cosmetic customisation option; you can apply them in the Garage. Some are unlocked using Red Beans; others can be acquired as lottery terminal rewards.

Armor patterns can have a significant impact on the way a warpaint looks on your battleframe, so if you see someone wearing a look you can’t identify, they might be achieving their unique appearance with an armor pattern.

There are also bodysuit patterns, which affect the non-armored areas of your character’s appearance. There are fewer of these than of the armor patterns. Red Bean armor patterns have a matching bodysuit pattern, but the armor patterns from the lottery terminal don’t seem to have bodysuit counterparts.

Here’s an example of how an armor pattern can really change a frame’s look.

    Amazing write up and over all guide.

    Thanks a lot for this!

      Thanks! Glad you like it. :)

      • Lirese August 16, 2014 at 17:45 #

        Any chance this will ever be updated again?

  2. Iseldiera August 31, 2013 at 09:59 #

    Hi Siha,

    Thank you for the amazing work.

    Quick Question:

    In the Progression Warframe List, you posted a screenie of the Accord base frames when maxed. To me it looks like the no frame option that you start on default with.

    Is this white frame, when a base accord frame is maxed, any different from the default / no warpaint one?

    Thanks!

    • Siha August 31, 2013 at 11:18 #

      In all cases, the “default” warpaint for a battleframe (ie the one that shows if you have no paint selected) is the one that you unlock when you max out that frame. It’s the same for the Accord frames.

      • Iseldiera August 31, 2013 at 13:50 #

        This reply left me a little confused :/ can you please elaborate?

        • Siha August 31, 2013 at 17:23 #

          Well, every frame has a “default” warpaint — that’s the colouring that shows if you have “none” selected in the warpaints menu. When you max out a frame to 10/10/10, that default colouring is unlocked as a warpaint for you, and it will then appear in the list of warpaints you can use for other frames. So if you max out an Accord frame, you’ll get a warpaint called “Accord” with the white and black colouring. It’ll look just the same as the Accord frames when they don’t have a warpaint applied, but you’ll be able to use it on any other frame you like – so you could put it on a Bastion or a Mammoth, for example.

          Does that make more sense?

        • Zadier August 31, 2013 at 17:29 #

          Basically, maxing out a battleframe lets you use that frame’s default warpaint on other battleframes. So if you had a maxed Dragonfly, for example, you would unlock the ability to use the Dragonfly’s green-and-gold-with-blue-lights color scheme as a warpaint on any of your other frames. Since all the Accord frames have the same basic white warpaint, maxing any one of them will unlock the Accord warpaint to use on whatever other frames you have.

  3. Kikboxa August 31, 2013 at 21:49 #

    As a side note I have obtained the special Red 5 warpaint by participating in the last closed beta weekend before open beta.

    • Kikboxa August 31, 2013 at 21:53 #

      Sorry i have read on and discovered what i actually had, sorry for my silly mistake.

  4. Iseldiera August 31, 2013 at 22:27 #

    Yes now it makes sense, actually it was explained nicely in the guide in the appropriate section but somehow I thought maxing a frame would give a “new” warpaint previously unavailable even to that frame. Its all clear now thanks!

  5. Wyntyr August 31, 2013 at 23:35 #

    Sweet Guide Astrek Association! I love the browser!

  6. Jector September 2, 2013 at 01:46 #

    Hey, I see an “Ares” warpaint listed in the warpaint browser, but no mention of how to get it in the article. Any details on that?

    • Siha September 2, 2013 at 01:48 #

      It’s in the Promotional Warpaints section of the guide – it was the warpaint from the recent Starter Pack (which is available until September 6th now, apparently).

      • Jector September 3, 2013 at 01:02 #

        Huh. I must have misclicked. When I viewed it in the browser it appeared to be an interesting dark color like the Locust paint. Don’t know how I managed that.

        Thanks for the work. Good stuff here.

      • Jector September 3, 2013 at 01:07 #

        Actually, swapping to Raptor it is much darker than with the other frames. It’s why I skipped over it looking for it listed in the article, it didn’t look the same at all. Is it really that dark with Raptor? Looks pretty sweet.

  7. CaptainZius September 2, 2013 at 09:54 #

    omg, a lot of work there. I love astrekassociation !!!!

  8. Faeryl September 3, 2013 at 05:31 #

    This is so AWESOME!!! Thank you Astrek Association! My only wish now is that I could purchase permanent versions of the Team Unicorn and Team Midair war paints.

    • Siha September 3, 2013 at 14:16 #

      Yeah, I’m especially hoping they give us a permanent unlock for Team Midair. :)

      • Faeryl September 9, 2013 at 17:27 #

        I realized the Team Unicorn won’t be available again, but I’m still hoping for Team Midair; yes, a permanent unlock would be AWESOME! ^_^

        • Siha September 11, 2013 at 03:33 #

          I must confess, I’m really hoping for a Team Midair permanent unlock too ;)

  9. Rardo September 3, 2013 at 16:51 #

    Anyone else think the Vapor warpaint is a match for Gordon Freemans suit?

  10. sylvana September 13, 2013 at 06:18 #

    “Here’s an example of how an armor pattern can really change a frame’s look.”

    Isn’t that a picture of three bodysuit patterns?

    • sylvana September 13, 2013 at 06:20 #

      NVM

    • Siha September 13, 2013 at 15:06 #

      No, they’re all armor patterns – the bodysuit pattern affects a different part of the overall frame model.

      • SachmetAnat August 8, 2014 at 00:21 #

        One thing that confuses me: I have tried the different bodysuit patterns on all six Accord frames, and seen absolutely no difference for any of them. Do only the advanced frames have parts that are declared as bodysuit or am I missing something?
