RoryPlays takes you through all the ways you can create and save the looks you want for your javelins.
Anthem gives you incredible flexibility when it comes to creating a custom appearance for each one of your javelins. From paint color to wear state, your options are almost endless.
Start by heading to the Forge, which is accessible either via Fort Tarsis or the Launch Bay, then select the appearance menu at the top of the screen. You’ll then see the different personalization options that are available.
On the left side you’ll see which parts of your armor you can change:
Note that while armor sets can change the silhouette of your javelin, they’re only cosmetic and will not change the suit’s power level.
On the right side, you’ll be able to adjust the visual properties of each piece of armor and change your animations. Your available options are:
Think of vinyls as unique patterns you can overlay onto your armor to give it a different look. These decals can add a little extra pizazz to your javelin, or, if you’ve earned one as a reward, show off your accomplishments.
Would you like your javelin to look like it’s been through some tough battles, or do you want one that’s straight off the showroom floor? Make the metal of your suit duller or shinier, add stains to cloth, or even chip paint to get precisely the look you want.
Materials and Paints
Want to change the texture of your armor? Materials give you the option to go from a sleek metallic look to rugged leather. They collectively cover the entire suit and allow you to mix and match looks in an incredibly detailed way.
In terms of paint, there’s a wide variety of colors to choose from. You can select from a huge range of pre-set colors or use the custom color wheel to get just the right shade and hue (see the controls in the bottom right of your screen).
You’ll also be able to select five animations to add to your loadout, including:
Once you’re happy with your design, you can give it a name and save your appearance as a loadout.
New players will be given a default number of appearance options to choose from, but as you play Anthem, there are lots of ways to collect more. You can find drops in the world by completing missions and Strongholds, collect blueprints and craft items using materials you’ve collected, or earn in-game currency to purchase new items.
One final note – materials, armor, emotes, and vinyls all have different rarity values:
The higher the rarity you can find, craft, or purchase, the more you’ll stand out on your next expedition.
