If you want to be sociable with your fellow players in Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint, you might want to use emotes to communicate. Here’s how.
For the uninitiated, emotes are gestures your character can make in order to communicate with other real players sharing your game world. You can wave, do a dance, and a range of other gestures in order to express a number of emotions.
Ghost Recon Breakpoint has a wealth of emotes available, but not all of them are unlocked from the beginning of the game – and all of them need ‘equipping’ to your character.
In order to see the emotes you have available, open up the game’s main menu by pressing start/options. Toggle across to the ‘Identity’ tab. Once there, you’ll see a wheel on the left-hand side of your screen. This is your emote wheel, and each segment can have an emote assigned to it.
Clicking on one of the empty segments will bring up a list of all the emotes. Initially, many of them will be locked out, but scrolling through will reveal a handful that are available right away. Assign whichever ones you’d like in your wheel.
You can unlock more emotes by buying them with in-game currency, unlocking them via Ubisoft Club, or buying them with premium currency (which we wouldn’t recommend!). There are plenty that you can get from just playing the game, so there’s really no need.
Once you’ve assigned emotes to your wheel, you can bring it up while in social areas – i.e. the hub town of Erewhon – by pressing your right shoulder button (that’s RB on Xbox and R1 on PS4). Select the emote you want to use then watch your character dance, wave or sulk away.
