Blog Emote 1

Emotes are animations that players can use in addition to VOIP communications. Emotes are divided into two categories: Emotes (only usable in mainbase) and Gestures (usable anywhere). To access the emotes radial menu, press and hold the X key during the game session.

Emote Types[ | ]

Emotes are divided into two categories:

Emotes are full-body animations, when players use them, a 3rd person view of the player character will appear. Doing actions such as moving, aiming down sight, jumping, crouching or going prone, switching gear, etc, will interrupt the emote. Emotes can only be used in the Main Base or anywhere during the staging phase o avoid the 3rd person's view impacting gameplay.

Gestures are an upper body hand sign animation that players can trigger at any location, any time. Unlike Emotes, it only involves movement of the hands and arms. Gestures will show up in 1st person only, without obstructing your movement or triggering the third-person camera. Common actions such as moving and changing stances will not interrupt the Gestures. However, aiming down sight, jumping, going prone, firing your weapon, switching gear, and any action that involves hand movements will stop the Gestures.

Customization Menu

Emotes can be purchased via the Steam store page. Acquired Emotes can be equipped on the Customize tab, which can be accessed from the Main menu. In the Customize tab, players can select which emote to equip by simply clicking on it. The menu will display a preview of the emote, and a checkmark on the emote will also inform you of which one you currently have equipped.

Emote wheel

In-game, players can use the Emotes and Gestures via the Emote wheel, similar to the Squad Leader interactive radial menu. The default keybind to activate emotes is X and can be changed in Settings. Note the default keybinding only works while unscoped as the X is used for zeroing when aiming down the sight. Hold the Emote key to open the emote wheel and click on an emote of your choice to activate it.
