Warhammer 40k Darktide is a viral first-person action-shooter game that was masculine at one point without any emotes and funky stuff. But, players demanded them to add the emote feature in their latest installment the Warhammer 40,000 Darktide.
The next thing we know is that they added this feature, but players are still not sure How to Use Emote in Warhammer Darktide. For the most part, there is an Emote Button in Warhammer Darktide, that you can use to perform emote actions, standing at a specific spot. Let’s get to the details below.
Why was there no Emote in Darktide?
As we already mentioned Warhammer has always been about masculinity, with massive male and female soldiers in combat, fighting similarly-looking enemies.
All the characters are buffed and have serious or mature-looking facial expressions. Therefore, adding Emotes to these characters wouldn’t seem that well off.

Why did they add Emote now?
So, the time for that masculinity has long gone, and people want to use those emotes in nearly every game possible, whether that game character design suits the emotes or not.
Warhammer Darktide has serious characters and players thought, “Wouldn’t it be great if the characters started dancing around, and had that same series expression”? That is exactly what the developers did.
If it were done before, the gaming community would back-lash the developers for doing that. But, in today’s era, this suits the gaming industry.
Where can you use Warhammer Darktide Emotes?
The developers have made the Emote feature exclusive to the Morningstar, and you can’t use them while playing the actual mission of the game. There are other instances as well, where you can use the Emotes.
- During player crashes
- Waiting area
- Elevator Rides
- Any area where you are not in actual gameplay
