War Machine's Rank 1 outfit is a gray camouflage jacket over a white shirt and brown cargo pants. There is an Avengers symbol on the left sleeve of his jacket. He wears several pieces of his War Machine armor: the chestplate with a large blaster mounted on the back, one gauntlet on his right hand, and the boots.

War Machine's Rank 3 outfit is his War Machine armor.

War Machine's Rank 5 outfit is a very large and overpowered version of his War Machine armor. It bears a resemblance to Iron Man's Hulkbuster armor. He has a blaster on his back.
