Cosmetics are decorative non gameplay altering items that are used to personalize your character and weapons in The Cycle: Frontier. They can be purchased directly for Aurum via Windfall's shop, or they can also be earned as rewards from other events such as the Fortuna pass shop (For more information on the shops see Prospect Station).
The current available cosmetics can be used to decorate Prospectors and their respective outfits, Weapons, your personal Drop pod, and more. While cosmetics do change the textures and models of the player and their arsenal, they do not affect actual gameplay performance of the player in any way.
