In continuation of Bustad MyTinder’s “We’re all Bored & In Quarantine,” posts–I thought it’d be interesting to think of in-universe, fitting Emotes for Gears 5–since they’re obviously here to stay. I’ll make my list and then feel free to add! —It is a forum after all.
“Carmine Luck” - For any character with a Helmet, have them do Anthony Carmine’s Lancer jam animation from UE accompanied with something along the lines of “Oh I hate this stupid thing, it’s always jammed.”
“Dipbshit” - A voice line for Marcus where he shakes his head.
“Feel the Power!” - The classic “Feel the Power of the COG!” line as the character holds up whatever gun they’re holding by the top.
“NOOOO” - Marcus drops to his knees, throwing his arms to the sky and shouting “NO!” real loud, 10% Chance of him shouting “DOM!” or “CARMINE!”
“Banner at Arms” - The character holds up their equipped banner, planting it down in front of them. Will last about 10 seconds before it crumbles away.
“Big Guns” - Cole or Clayton hold up their biceps, nodding forward and then bringing them down in a curled position, “Hell Yeah!” they shout.
“For the Queen” - For all the Locust, as they point forward like Raam and shout, “For the Queen,” Myrrah says “For your Queen.”
“Classic” - The Terminator melts into the floor, all that’s left of them is their arm, with a thumbs-up, they then un-melt back into reality.
“Healing Day,” - The Kantus gives us his signature scream with the classic Gears 2-beginning pose.
“Corruption,” - You watch as the DB is slowly taken over by Leeches, then they squirm away restoring him to normal.
“Feed” - The Swarm/Locust grab a large arm off the ground (Presumably a dead human) and take a big hefty chunk before throwing it down.
“Western” - Have a character spin their weapon around in a circle, shouting “Giddy up!” or “Yeehaw” (For whenever Dizzy is put into the game.
And this is all I could think of at the moment. Let me know what you think.
