Apex Legends skydive emotes have been around for a while now but with so many in the game, it's unlikely you've collected them all. If you're looking for the full list of skydive emotes in Apex Legends – or you want to know what they are and how to use them in the first place – we can help. They won't help you get kills in the battle royale but they do exude style as you fly down into the arena, so without further ado, here's everything you need to know about 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 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.

How to Equip Skydive Emotes in Apex Legends

Skydiving is an essential strategy in Apex Legends. Depending on where you land, you can be in a more favorable position than your foes. The battle for supremacy can even start mid-air, as teams play chicken while vying for the hot spot.

However, default skydives can get boring after a while. That is why Respawn introduced skydive emotes in Season 2, allowing players to customize their experience from the very start of the match. New players might be wondering how to equip these rewarding emotes.

In this article, we’ll tell you all about getting and equipping skydive emotes in Apex Legends.

How to Equip Skydive Emotes in Apex Legends?

Skydive emotes are peculiar amongst legend-oriented cosmetics. Unlike other customization options, such as badges, trackers, and quips, you won’t find the skydive emote slot in your pre-game customization screen. This has led a few players to speculate on how to equip these items once they obtain them.

We’ll go over brief instructions for each type of device you can currently play Apex Legends on.

How to Equip Skydive Emotes on PC?

Skydive emotes will be equipped to the legend you’ve unlocked it on as soon as you obtain one. You don’t have to go through the process of customizing your legend before the game starts. All you have to do is enter a new match, and the skydive emote option will immediately become available if you’ve unlocked it for the legend.

If you have unlocked multiple emotes for a legend, you can cycle through them in a match once the previous emote ends.

How to Equip Skydive Emotes on PS4?

Just as in the PC version, there’s no need to go into the legend menu and equip a skydive emote. As soon as you unlock one, it becomes attached to the appropriate legend. You can begin using it in the next match.

The game will equip all the skydive emotes you own to all legends, even if a legend has multiple emotes available to them. You can cycle through them in-game.

How to Equip Skydive Emotes on Xbox?

Similar to the other console, the Xbox version’s legend customization menu doesn’t feature a skydive emote selection. Your unlocked skydive emotes are automatically added to appropriate legends and made available for use. You can flair up your skydives in the next match you play.

Since most legends nowadays have multiple skydive emotes, the game will also equip them and allow you to cycle through the available options.

How to Get Apex Legends Skydive Emotes?

At the beginning of Season 2, Respawn introduced skydive emotes for all legends that were available for play at the time. The emotes were packaged into the season’s battle pass, spread out between the 100 battle pass levels.

A player needed to purchase the Season 2 battle pass and complete it almost entirely to get all the emotes (the final emote was a reward for achieving battle pass level 95).

In later seasons, the developers introduced more skydive emotes. These were either tied to purchasing and progressing through a season battle pass, or to special events scattered across the years. You can find the currently available skydive emotes by scrolling through the list of battle pass rewards (by opening the “Season Hub” menu on the top left).

Skydive emotes released during events can be purchased for 1,000 Apex Coins (the premium currency) or 800 Crafting Metal, or bundled with other items from the same event collection. If you’re buying a bundle, you only get a chance to unlock the skydive emote, as there’s a bunch of other cosmetic items that can be in the same slot.

Each new event can bring a new skydive emote for your favorite legend, so watch out for new events and store deals. Once an event passes, these cosmetics won’t be available for purchase anymore.

How to Use Apex Legends Skydive Emotes?

Once you’ve unlocked a skydive emote for a legend, it will be equipped automatically and ready to use. To use the skydive emote in-game, press the jump button while skydiving. The jump button defaults to “Space” on the keyboard and “A” for controllers. You can also change these settings in your “Settings” menu. The skydive emote command is locked to the “jump” command, so you can’t change one without altering the other.

If you have multiple skydive emotes for a legend, you can choose which one to play by holding the emote button and selecting the emote from the radial menu that pops up. Alternatively, if you’ve finished a skydive emote, you can cycle to the next one you’ve unlocked (ordered by acquisition date).

You can use skydive emotes whenever you’re skydiving, which can happen in a few scenarios:

  • At the match start, all players will skydive from the dropship. This lengthy skydive cut scene can sometimes allow you to play a skydive emote more than once, depending on how far you’re dropping.
  • Scaling a jump tower (the zip line connected to a red balloon).  When you reach the top, you’ll begin skydiving to the ground.
  • On the World’s Edge map, geysers around the map act like jump towers (with a slightly shorter ascension time). These geysers are scattered throughout the map (there are also jump towers on the map as well), but the most prominent one is in the POI (point of interest) named “Geyser.”

Map updates can sometimes add other features that allow players to skydive. The game will also display a prompt to use the skydive emote near the screen’s bottom center.

Additional FAQ

How Do I Activate Skydive Emote in Apex?

You can activate the skydive emote while skydiving by pressing the “Jump” button. For the keyboard + mouse configuration, this is the “Space” button, while most controllers use the “A” button instead.

Does Bloodhound Have a Skydive Emote?

Bloodhound currently has three skydive emotes:

• Stoic Stance: Bloodhound flips in the air and nods to the player. This emote was available as a part of the Season 2 battle pass.

• Nevermore: Bloodhound spins in the air upside down as an unkindness of raven’s circle around him. The emote was available as a part of the “System Override” event item collection.

• Crossed Swords: Bloodhound activates his headlights (similar to using his ultimate ability), pulls out two swords, and does aerial acrobatics. This item was available in the “Fight Night” event item collection.

Some events in future battle pass rewards may introduce new skydive emotes (or allow you to purchase older ones), so watch out for store updates and new ranked seasons!

How Do You Skydive in Apex Legends?

All players will skydive from the starting drop ship to their drop location when the match begins. This extra time allows you to make an initial strategy and scout out your opponents’ positions. Now is the time to use skydive emotes.

Alternatively, use the jump towers (balloons connected via vertical zip lines to the ground), geysers (on World’s Edge), or other map features. For example, the “Mirage Voyage” feature had vents that launched players into a skydive. When using a jump tower, you’ll only skydive if you reach the top of the zip line.

Your legend will display the skydiving trail while performing a skydive.

How Do You Equip Trails in Apex?

Skydive trails will appear behind the player during a skydive. Custom skydive trails were introduced with the first ranked league (during Season 2) for the top-ranked players (Diamond and Apex Predator). The tradition of handing out skydive trails for top players continued for later seasons. In Season 4, the Master rank was introduced, surpassing Diamond (and making Diamond no longer eligible for dive trail rewards). In Season 8, dive trails were reintroduced to Diamond players. The dive trail color depends on the rank achieved.

To equip a dive trail, follow these steps:

1. Open the “Loadout” tab on the top of the main menu.

2. Select “Game Customization” on the bottom.

3. Click on the “Skydive Trails” tab.

4. Right-click on the trail you want to equip (controller players need to use the “RT” or “fire” button).

Skydive to Victory With Emotes

Now you know how to obtain and equip skydive emotes in Apex Legends. You can use these brief animations to pass some time while dropping longer distances on the map. Just remember to keep an eye out for nearby opponents rather than focusing on the pretty animations!

We are currently in Season 3 and Skydiving emotes are still part of the Battle Pass.
