Color Picker Extensions are items which expand the range of colors that a player can customize their Warframes, Weapons, Companions and other items with. They can be bought from the Equipment section of the market, and most are sold for 75 each.
Upon purchase, the colors are tied to the player's account and they will be able to use the selected color palette without limits.
Two bundles can be purchased to save the player some platinum. Choice A features 5 color sets: Classic, Saturated Classic, Storm, Ice, and Fire; Choice B features 3 color sets: Grineer, Infested, and Smoke.
Legacy Color Palettes
Until Hotfix 14.0.9 there was bug that caused the gamma values for all the color palettes to be higher than normal, which had the affect of making all the colors (with the exception of 'true' black and white from the smoke color palette), to be a few shades lighter than intended. This issue was fixed in the aforementioned update, and gave every Tenno who logged in during the next two weeks the Gamma color palette for free.
This color palette features more drab and less saturated color compared to the other palette, Classic Saturated. This is the palette players start the game with, but just the column in the middle is available to use. Buying the Classic color palette unlocks all the other columns.
