The communication wheel interface

The communication wheel is an interface which allows players to send automatic messages during matches. Players can bring up the communication wheel using the 'C' button, and can then choose from 8 possible options.

The interface represents an alternative means of communication for players not wishing or not able to use the built-in voice communication system.


The following options, before 1.48, are arrayed clockwise from top:

  • Emote
  • Hello
  • Need healing/buffs; (default PC hotkey - X)
  • Group up
  • Ultimate status; (default PC hotkey - Z)
  • Voice Line
  • Acknowledge; (default PC hotkey - F)
  • Thank

By version 1.48, the communication wheel will get a revamp, allowing players to select 8 from 26 different options to use on the communication wheel, whilst they can still use voice lines and emotes via left clicking and right clicking, respectively. This includes:

  • Acknowledge
  • Attacking
  • Countdown
  • Defending
  • Emote
  • Fall Back
  • Go
  • Going In
  • Goodbye
  • Group Up
  • Hello
  • Incoming
  • Need Healing/Buffs
  • Need Help
  • No
  • On My Way
  • Press the Attack
  • Push Forward
  • Ready
  • Sorry
  • Thanks
  • Ultimate Status
  • Voice Line
  • With You
  • Yes
  • You Are Welcome
