How do you use emotes in Marvel’s Avengers?

How to emote in Marvel's Avengers

To perform an emote in Marvel’s Avengers, you must press down on a controller d-pad or the down arrow key on a keyboard. Doing so will prompt your character to perform the equipped emote, which can be set in the game’s “Cosmetics” menu.

Emotes are specific to each character, so, for example, you can’t have Hulk perform Ms. Marvel’s actions — amusing as that may have been. You’ll need to unlock emotes by earning experience points with each character, then equip them across each of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. By default, the characters have no emote equipped.

  1. Unlock an emote by leveling up or purchasing one from the in-game store.
  2. Navigate to the “Cosmetics” menu and switch to the “Emotes” tab.
  3. Select the emote that you want to equip.
  4. During gameplay, press down on the d-pad if using a controller or the down arrow key on a keyboard.

After following the above steps, your character will perform an emote animation.

It’s possible that more emotes will be added to the game over time, with developer Crystal Dynamics and publisher Square Enix focusing on cosmetic microtransactions. Of course, there will also be non-cosmetic DLC as outlined here.
