One of the highlights of Apex Legends is its huge customization potential. There are seemingly endless ways to express yourself on the battlegrounds, from skins to emotes to holosprays and more. One of the funniest categories of cosmetics in the game are skydive emotes, which can only be activated when your character is flying through the air towards the ground.
Skydive emotes are a little harder to find than other emotes, and there aren’t as many for each legend as there are, say, skins. Even so, they’re worth having, if only for a bit of fun before a match starts or while taking flight from a jump tower. They’re also great for proving to your teammates that you know your way around a particular Legend. After all, why would you want to decorate them with emotes if you don’t care?
If you want some of that glare for yourself, here’s how to get and equip skydive emotes in Summit.
Find Skydive Emotes
Like most cosmetics, there are multiple ways to get skydive emotes. These can be purchased through the in-game store. While not always available, the rotation will sometimes include a Skydive Emote or two for specific Legends. They may be available for purchase individually with Apex Coins or as part of a Legend-specific bundle. Check the Featured section of the store to see if any are currently available, and don’t despair if you can’t find anything – store stock rotates quite frequently.
Some skydive emotes are only available during events. If you’re playing while a Collector’s Event or Themed Event is in progress, be sure to check the Event Hub tab on the game’s homepage to see if emotes are available. With a few exceptions, these will likely only be able to be crafted during the event, so be sure to take advantage of their availability.
Finally, skydive emotes can also be found on the battle pass. This is where you’ll find most of them: they’re often included as rewards on the Battle Pass premium track during a given season. To get these emotes, you will need to purchase the premium battle pass and level it up to the level the emote is contained. It will be instantly granted once you reach that level.
Equip Skydive Emotes
Once you get a skydive emote, equipping it is pretty easy. From the game’s main menu, select the Legends tab at the top of the screen. From there, choose the legend with the emote you want to equip. On their screen, select Emote Wheel from the menu at the top, then Skydive Emotes. (If you don’t see the Skydive Emotes button, that means you don’t have skydive emotes for that Legend.)
The Skydive Emotes screen will show you all of the relevant emotes you have for that Legend along with a short GIF of each. To equip one, all you have to do is right-click or press a button on the emote, then choose a space for it in the diagram that appears. If you’ve equipped it correctly, you should see a small orange check mark next to your emote of choice.
Once you are in battle, the game will ask you to use it. There are some fun skydive emotes for most Legends in the game, so give them a try the next time you get into battle royale.
