Skydiving emotes were first introduced in Season 2 with the Battle Pass, which can be purchased for 950 Apex Coins. This sadly makes the Apex Legends skydive emotes an item that may lead you to shelling out money for the Pass and then grinding your way up the tiers before you can gain access to them, but if that’s the route you want to take to get some of these fun emotes then we won’t judge!

Skydiving emotes are automatically equipped once you’ve unlocked them. Once that’s done, head into the game, choose your Legend and get ready to show off your sick moves.

Depending on what platform you’re playing Apex Legends on, as well as your button inputs, how to do the skydive emotes may differ from person to person. If you haven’t mapped your controls any differently from when you first started the game, press X/A/M1 to perform your Skydive emote and show everyone just what you can do with a mix of gravity and jets.

  • Emotes are viewed in third-person but have a unique “anti-peek” feature, which prevents players from being able to see enemies behind corners not normally visible in the first-person view. This is disabled in the Firing Range.
  • The Legend's hitbox still follows their model, meaning that it is possible to dodge bullets with an emote.
  • Each legend has one free emote.
  • Can also be done on the victory screen, either a random emote or an emote chosen manually from the emote wheel (eliminated players cannot do this).
  • Cannot be used if you are too close to a wall.

Apex Legends Skydive Emote Guide: How to Show Your Lineup for the Coolest



(Image credit: EA)

As you and your team descend into the battle below, the Apex Legends parachute emotes are one of the best things you can do you can do. They don't change the game in any way, but sometimes just diving straight into Apex Legends fighting can get a little old, can't it? Luckily, with some of these emotions, you can shake up the status quo. The only question is how to get Apex Legends skydiving emotes and how to use them? We are here to help you put the puzzle together.

How to get Apex Legends Skydive Emotes

Skydiving Emotes were first introduced in Season 2 with the Battle Pass, which can be purchased for 950 Apex Coins. This unfortunately causes the Apex Legends item to skydive which can result in you revealing Pass money and then progressing up the stairs before you can access it, but if you want to use that path to get some of these fun emotions, then we won't judge!

We are currently in Season 3 and Skydiving emotes are still part of the Battle Pass. At the moment, we're not sure if any new ones will be part of Apex Legends Season 4, but given that they've been featured in previous Battle Passes, we'd be surprised if they weren't included again in the upcoming season.

How to use Apex Legends Skydive Emotes

Skydiving Emotes are automatically set as soon as you unlock them. Once that's done, head into the game, choose a legend, and get ready to show off your sick moves..

Depending on which platform you're playing Apex Legends on, as well as your input buttons, the order in which you perform Skydiving Emotes may differ from person to person. If you didn't display your controls differently than when you first started the game, press X / A / M1 to perform an emote in Skydive and show everyone what you can do by combining gravity and jets..
