Customizing emotes is thankfully a rather simple affair. Follow the simple steps given below to go about the process:

  1. You will first need to bring up the emote menu, accessible either by pressing up on the D-Pad (for console players) or Pressing the E key (for PC players). Completing this action will unlock a total of three quick access “wheels” that can be toggled using the L2 and R2 buttons.
  2. From here, click on the relevant customization button in order to generate the entire list of available emotes. Select the desired emote and drag it to a particular section on the wheel to complete the process.
  3. You can now easily access these emotes by pressing the E key or Up on the D-Pad to activate it.

These emotes are mandatory to use in several campaign quests, which will involve you cheering the troops on, among other actions. Additionally, they are undoubtedly a huge part of team communication in the multiplayer part of the game.
