Emotes allow a Warframe or Operator to perform visible actions using their body for purposes of communication. They can be accessed and activated through the in-game Gear menu (default Q ). While players can only equip 10 different emotes at a time, emotes can be customized in the Gear menu, allowing for different combinations of desired emotes to be used in a mission. Emotes are purely visual, and have no other effect in gameplay.
List of known Gestures
The following are the known list of actions that a Warframe can perform using the Emotes feature:
Agree - The Warframe nods its head once.
Boast - The Warframe squats while flexing its arms on its side, then extends its arms in front to perform a kata.
Bow - The Warframe slightly bows with its head and body.
Deep Bow - The Warframe clasps its hands in supplication, then completely bows its torso down to its abdomen.
Disagree - The Warframe dismissively waves its right arm to the side.
Meditate - The Warframe levitates above the ground and assumes a meditative Lotus position. Can be toggled
Follow - The Warframe waves their hand toward them, signifying a Tenno to follow.

Poise Narta - Can be toggled

Another type of Emote that can be performed are Handshakes, which are emotes performed simultaneously between two players. In order to perform a Handshake, a player must first perform the Handshake emote, which will set them up. Once set up, another player can perform the Handshake emote on the player already set up to initiate the actual Handshake action. Apart from the normal Handshake gesture, each of the seven Syndicates also possess their own different Handshakes.
Emotes can only be cancelled by either pausing and resuming the game, or using another emote.
Longer emotes such as Meditate or Nartas can prevent knockdown effects.
