Chest Armor Pieces now live!

Recommended Posts

You read that right -- chest armor pieces are officially available in the Steam Workshop. Without further ado, let's dive into technical specifications. The full guide can be found here: http://www.warframe.com/steamworkshop/help/index.php?page=creating-a-chest-armor-piece


Chest Armor Pieces are a great entry point into the TennoGen program -- they let you explore any faction’s art style and give our Tenno community an opportunity to find an individual look for their Warframes. While Chest Armor Pieces offer creators a lot of freedom, there are some technical limitations and tips you’ll need to keep in mind to ensure your design performs well!

Technical Guidelines:

  • Chest Armor Pieces are intended to fit all Warframes, and the attachment peg should be long enough to fix into both the most convex and the most concave chests.
  • Triangle budget: 2500
  • Maps Authored at 1024 x 1024, in-game will be 512 x 512.
  • Attachment point needs to be along the bust.
  • There are general size boundaries that need to be respected to reduce clipping. You are welcome to push the envelope, but at your own risk. We reserve the right to reject pieces that unnecessarily go beyond the boundaries. 


NOTE: Please keep the difference in size between Warframes in mind! A small dainty piece might show up well on Mag, but not make an impact on Chroma. We provide all the Warframe meshes, be sure to test how your piece performs on a variety of different Warframes.

Some tips:

  • It is very difficult to make a compelling piece that works well with all Warframes. We don’t want to handicap a compelling design, but please do what you can to accommodate the extremes of different chests.


  • As always, avoid contemporary references, pop culture, and 'meta' humour. While we have fun with this during holiday times your goal should be something that fits with the Warframe universe as it is.
  • Your entry cannot contain elements from copyrighted works, reference to other IPs, or make use of any images or material that you do not own.
  • While any Warframe appropriate style is welcome we are not looking for minor variations on the same idea. We are not looking for 50 variations of "cool metal spikes"; the more compelling and original your idea, the more we will appreciate it.


Prior to submission, please refer to the handy checklist below to make sure your Chest Armor Piece meets all the TennoGen criteria:
