This will open up the Outriders emote menu, and grant you the option to select any emote that’s available with the right analog stick or your mouse.

Once you’ve highlighted the emote you want to use, let go of V/ left on the d-pad and your character will perform the emote. It’s as simply as that.

How to Get More Emotes

Every time you complete an accolade or an achievement in Outriders, you’ll unlock a new specific emote which can be viewed and assigned in the ‘Customization Menu,’ accessed by pressing right on the d-pad when in the Hero menu.
