How To Emote in Helldivers 2

Helldivers 2 throws you into the heat of battle alongside fellow troopers, but sometimes, words just aren’t enough. That’s where emotes come in! These handy animations allow you to communicate non-verbally with your team, adding a touch of personality and humor to the battlefield chaos.

Before heading into battle, you need to equip your desired emote:

  1. Head to the Armory: This is usually located on your ship or any teammate’s ship.
  2. Select the “Character” tab: This tab allows you to customize various aspects of your Helldiver, including emotes.
  3. Scroll down and find the “Emote” section: Here, you’ll see all the emotes you’ve unlocked.
  4. Choose your emote: Select the emote you want to use in your next mission.

Once you’ve equipped your emote, you can activate it during a mission:

  • On PC: Press the B key.
  • On PS5: Hold down the left button on the D-pad.

Remember, you can’t change your emote mid-mission, so choose wisely before dropping onto the battlefield.

Helldivers 2 offers a variety of emotes, from the classic salute to a silly Rock, Paper, Scissors throw. You can unlock new emotes through various means, like completing missions or purchasing them with in-game currency (Warbonds).

While emotes are a great way to communicate, don’t forget about the good old-fashioned text chat (available on PC) and voice chat (available on both PC and PS5) for more complex messages and strategic planning.

Final Words

Communication is key to success in Helldivers 2. Use emotes, chat, and voice chat to coordinate with your team and bring down the enemy bugs in style!
