How to Emote in Helldivers 2

To emote in Helldivers 2, players must hold left on the D-pad or hold down the B key. If you are new to Helldivers 2, your actions will summon the default emote. Feel free to emote while on mission or in your ship.

Like most emotes in third-person shooters, Helldivers 2 emotes do not serve a huge purpose beyond something fun and different to do in the chaotic game. Although there are not many in-game benefits to emoting in Helldivers 2, it is a good way to interact with other soldiers in a public game, especially if you are playing solo.
