What Is Emoting in PUBG?

Emoting in PUBG Mobile is the act of a player’s character performing non-essential taunts, emotes, or celebratory gestures through a player-controlled command through a user interface. These are performed by tapping the emote button and then tapping or swiping the desired emote to communicate with other players.

Emotes in PUBG Mobile are pre-recorded taunts, greetings, or simple emotes that players use to communicate in a more fun and less-violent manner. These emotes have become a dominant part of the battle royale experience in the game and can be obtained through emote crates, RP missions, or the Royale Pass Tier rewards.

How to Unlock Emotes in PUBG?

Emotes in PUBG are unlocked via supply crates and are classified as either Permanent, which is valid forever once activated, or Timed, which is only valid for a limited period of time.

When opening a crate for the first time, if an emote is not acquired, the chance of receiving an emote in the future increases. Timed emotes are cheaper to use and allow the user to switch to new levels quickly should they choose, unlike permanent emotes.

Using BP (Battle Points)

In PUBG, BP (Battle Points) can be used for emoting. BP, which stands for Battleground Points, are the currency earned by players during the sill phases of the games. One BP is award per kill and for every second spent alive. For every 100 BP, a player can purchase a crate that contains a loot drop that gives them access to skins for guns, items, and clothing such as jackets, trainers, gloves, sunglasses, bandanas, helmets, and masks. These crates are what allows PUBG players to emote and add to their player identity. While most of the emote items are obtained by purchasing or earning crates, a few can occasionally be found in battle royale crates. These can be used to emote in scenarios such as celebrating a win or joking around with friends in a game. Emoting can be executed by pressing the tab+P keys together for PC, bringing up the emote menu. For mobile users, they tap the ’emote’ button on the bottom right of the screen to trigger a similar menu to select the desired emote.

Using UC (Unknown Cash)

You can buy and expand emotes in PUBG Mobile using Unknown Cash (UC). UC is a game-specific form of in-game currency which is only available to PUBG Mobile users, and is purchased. In some cases, premium rewards or royale points are earned when leveling up. UC can then be used within PUBG Mobile in order to purchase or improve multiple unique emotes. By upgrading your favorite emote through this method, you could also expand its usability through other leveling-up features in the game. UC can either be purchased or it can be earned during randomly allocated special events and in certain mission completions.

How to Equip Emotes in PUBG?

You equip emotes in PUBG by tapping on the in-game emote icon in the lower right HUB of your screen. From here, you tap on the emote that you wish to select under the Emote Collection tab. Only a maximum of 8 emotes can be selected before entering a match. The currently selected emotes can be switched by tapping one of the 8 blank sides of the emote dial.

Players can also equip and use emotes from the emote wheel in the emote section of their inventory. Here, you can randomly generate a set of 8 emotes to use in battle. To equip these emotes, you need to tap the emotes you want and click the ‘equip’ option.

How to Use Emotes in PUBG?

You use emotes in PUBG by pushing the emote button in the center of the wheel where you see a specific emote or type it in the chat balloon section and push the Send in Room button. This PUBG emote tutorial shows you how.

Using the Emote Wheel

The easily accessible emote emote wheel is the main method of emoting in PUBG Mobile. 81 different emote actions are available on the wheel, of which 36 are basic emotes for free. The emote button is a chat icon in the upper left corner of the screen between the player’s health bar and the voice chat button. Tap the chat icon to bring up the emote wheel on the screen. Tap different emote icons to hear them spoken and have your character perform the emote action. Drag your finger across the map to the desired emote icon and lift up your finger to have your character perform the emote action.

Using Keyboard Shortcuts

PUBG allows for the use of keyboard commands to cheer and give thanks to fellow team members in the chatbox. Players can use the ALT + WK01 command to provide a clap emoticon. In addition, the following texting commands invoke the appropriate emoticons to display the desired human expressions.

  • $x : Mad Face [Do the thank you emote]
  • $x3 : Hurt Face [Hold Breath emote]
  • $x14 : Joy [Fleeing emote]
  • $x9 : Sadness [Lay Emote]
