League of Legends: Wild Rift is finally available on iOS and Android devices, and many gamers are wondering how to emote in this mobile adaptation of the hugely popular PC game. Wild Rift shares many similarities with the PC version of League of Legends, including the standard three-lane structure, but some aspects of the game have been changed to better fit mobile devices. Emotes are returning from the PC version, as are champion skins, but usage is a little different on a phone or tablet. Here’s how to emote in League of Legends: Wild Rift.
How to use emotes in League of Legends: Wild Rift
During a game, tap the chat icon to emote in League of Legends: Wild Rift. Then tap the smiley face icon to bring up a page with all of your emotes. On this page, all you have to do is tap an emote to use it.
To recap, here is how to emote in Wild Rift:
- Tap the chat icon.
- Tap the smiley face icon.
- Choose an emote.
Of course, before you can use an emote, you’ll need to unlock one first. You can pick one up from the in-game store if you really want a cool one, but there are a few free emotes you can get for completing challenges and daily missions. Missions and challenges alternate. So keep an eye out for anyone who has an emote as a reward.
Although the game was only recently released, there are already plenty of emotes to choose from and purchase. Unfortunately, if you are a seasoned League of Legends veteran, your cosmetics and emotes will not carry over from the PC version of the game. You’ll have to start over like everyone else in Wild Rift. However, if the game hits consoles in the future, your mobile cosmetics will likely carry over as long as you use the same account. We won’t know for sure until Riot releases more details about the Wild Rift console port.
League of Legends: Wild Rift is now available for iOS and Android devices. A console version of the game is currently under development.
