Gestures (or emotes) are usually performed to greet or taunt other players in souls-like games. However, since Lies of P doesn’t have multiplayer, why would you want to do emotes? That is why this guide will show you how to use gestures in Lies of P and what they do.

While you can complete the entire game without using any gestures, using a few to unlock secrets or optional dialogue can be pretty fun. With that said, let’s dive right in and get started.

Lies of P: How to Use Gestures

When you start the game, you will have a few basic gestures that won’t do anything in terms of unlocking optional interactions. However, you can unlock new gestures by playing the game and talking to different NPCs.

To use gestures, you need to equip them like other usable items in your Upper Belt, Lower Belt, or Extra Bag. Once you have them equipped, you can use them by selecting the gesture and pressing the “use item” button (depending on which slot you have assigned the gesture to).

In short:

  • Open the menu.
  • Go to the Extra Bag, and choose the slot you want to equip a gesture.
  • Once equipped, select the gesture and press the “use item” button to use it.

For some reason, you need to have the gesture equipped like an item to use them which makes it somewhat difficult to use. If you have a lot of items equipped in your belt, cycling through them in a boss fight can be tricky especially if you have a gesture in between as well. So, make sure that you unequip it during fights.


And there you have it; that’s how you can use gestures in Lies of P. Like some Souls games, using gestures will allow you to unlock hidden/optional interactions or even new secrets as well.
