Creating Leg Armor Pieces

Armor Pieces are a great entry point to the TennoGen program. Leg armor pieces allow players to add more visual interest to their Warframe’s silhouette and allow creators to explore different styles and factions within the game’s universe. Since these armor pieces are placed in highly mobile areas on our characters, there are important guidelines and technical limitations you will need to keep in mind!

NOTE: We are only accepting sets including two leg armor pieces. Individual pieces will not be considered at this time.

Technical Guidelines

Armor Pieces are intended to fit all Warframes, and the attachment peg should be long enough to fit into all leg shapes. It may be tempting to design a piece that fits closely around the shin, but with the diverse Warframe designs, a more generic attachment style is recommended to ensure it works on everyone!

There are general size boundaries that need to be respected to reduce clipping and ensure the armor pieces do not collide during walking animations. Any pieces that curve behind the knee towards the thigh can lead to clipping. If your armor extends towards the inside of the shin, make sure it protrudes forwards or backwards, not towards the other leg, as increased bulk here can cause the two armor pieces to collide.

You are welcome to push the envelope at your own risk. We reserve the right to reject pieces that unnecessarily go beyond the boundaries. Asymmetrical designs are welcome, but both legs share the same texture set, so plan accordingly if you go this route.
