Emoji are small smiley-face icons that a player can temporarily display just below their ship. They serve no gameplay function, but can be used for rudimentary communication with other players.
There are ten emoji that can be displayed. Emojis are displayed by pressing the corresponding number key, each emoji is assigned to one of 0-9. The ten emoji and their corresponding keys can be displayed in-game by hovering one's mouse over the smiley face icon towards the bottom left of the screen.Players can still use emoji while dead, these will display at the point where they were destroyed.
