Gear and Customization Guide

Below are the terminologies related to customizing your Javelin in Anthem:

  • The Forge
  • Loadouts
  • Crafting
  • Appearance
  • The Vault

The Forge

The Forge is basically your own garage where you try out and set up your weapons, gears, and armor. It is also your place for crafting equipment and customizing your javelin. The Forge can be accessed from:

  • The terminal beside the Javelin platform in Fort Tarsis (next to Zoe)
  • The Launch Expedition Screen
  • The Javelin Launch Bay


Loadouts refer to the combination of items you have put together when customizing your javelin. Multiple loadouts can be made for each of your Javelin variants. Remember that each Javelin has its own specific items that you can equip. For example, Storm javelins can only be equipped with Seals.

When using loadouts at The Forge:

  1. Select Javelins.
  2. Choose the javelin you want to be customized.
  3. Select Clone Loadout to make an exact copy of what you have currently equipped
  4. Select New Loadout if want to start it from scratch.
  5. Name your Loadouts so you can easily tell them apart.
  6. Equip the items you want to use in your new Loadout
  7. Save your new Loadout.
