Ephemera are a type of cosmetic item for Warframes and Operators. When equipped, they create special visual effects that emanate from the Warframe's body.

EquippingEdit

To equip an Ephemera, go to the "Arsenal" page, then click on a Warframe's "Appearance" tab. The Ephemera can be equipped in the option "Attachments" under the section labeled as "Ephemera".

The Ephemera section will not appear until at least one Ephemera has been obtained.
