How to emote in Remnant 2

Remnant 2 is playable solo if you’re the lone wolf type, but it’s designed with cooperative play in mind. As such, Gunfire Games has included a variety of emotes for you to use to communicate with any pals you bring along on your adventure. Below, we’ll tell you how to emote and give you a full list of all of your options so that you can be sure everyone knows exactly how you’re feeling throughout your playtime together.

How to emote

How you access emotes will depend on if you’re on a console or PC, of course. Console players can hold down on their controller’s D-pad to access the wheel, while PC players will need to use G on their keyboard to do so. Once in the emote wheel menu, you can choose between five quick-select callouts meant to rapidly inform your teammates of something, such as requesting they follow you or letting them know what type of ammo you need.

Quick-select wheel options

  • Hand Gun Ammo
  • Long Gun Ammo
  • World Stone
  • Assistance
  • Follow Me

In addition to the quick-select callouts, you have two entire emote wheels you can access by choosing “Emotes 1” or “Emotes 2” at the bottom of the first wheel. Here’s what you can choose from:

Emote 1 wheel options

  • This Way
  • No
  • Wave
  • Laugh
  • Clap
  • Cheer
  • Beckon
  • Yes

Emote 2 wheel options

  • Praise the Gun
  • Confused
  • Fail
  • Exhausted
  • High five

It’s possible future DLC will add more emotes, but for now, these are all of the available options in Remnant 2. Make sure you cheer or high five folks who help you out – though a quick lighthearted laugh when they accidentally roll off a ledge is fine, too.

Remnant 2 PC: change these graphics settings immediately

Remnant 2 is officially out after a three-day early access period, and PC players are already forming strong opinions. The game is remarkably demanding, despite the fact that it doesn't include any ray tracing settings. On top of that, the developers insist that the game was designed with upscaling tools like Nvidia's Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) in mind, causing some backlash from PC players.

I've played just shy of 16 hours during the early access period, including a full campaign run. Although Remnant 2 is demanding even on flagship hardware, you can push down most of the graphics settings without impacting the look of the game. Here are the best settings to get Remnant 2 into a playable state on PC.

Remnant 2 is a master class in great shooter boss fight design
Remnant II's Mother Mind boss fight

The more that shooters embrace RPG elements, the worse their boss fights tend to get. Instead of featuring unforgettable encounters that test players' skills and recontextualize game elements in exciting ways, many bosses in games like Outriders feel like bullet sponges that any player can beat as long as they have a good enough weapon. I haven’t experienced a truly fantastic, memorable boss fight in a shooter for some time, so Remnant II shocked me when it provided three in just a couple of hours of play.

Gunfire Games’ Soulslike shooter sequel to 2019 sleeper hit Remnant: From the Ashes builds upon the formula that its predecessor established, so fans of the first game will find a lot to enjoy here. At first, I had trouble getting into what felt like a mediocre third-person shooter with some stark, colorful levels. But after a couple of astonishing boss fights, I’m starting to come around on Remnant II.
Better Bosses
For those that haven’t played Remnant II, players essentially fight through a string of dungeons set across multiversal realms. Big bad bosses that play around with the third-person shooter’s mechanics are often lurking at the end of each area. At the start of my Remnant II campaign, I ventured through a realm called Yaesha and met my first memorable boss in a place called The Twisted Chantry.
