Facebook recently changed their ‘Like’ system, replacing that simple, effective thumbs-up with a small variety of emoji ‘reactions’ that allows you to express how you truly feel about a post. Do you love that photo of your friend’s new baby? Does that offensive post make you angry? Thanks to cartoon symbols, six extra forms of expression are yours to command!
But when it comes to gaming, a ‘wow’ face doesn’t always cut it. In fact, there are so many reactions we have when it comes to our hobby, we really need a whole emoji set dedicated to it. So that’s exactly what we’ve done. Just witnessed a sick burn? Then ‘Boom! Headshot!’ is just what you’re looking for. Find that and 29 others below.
