COMBAT EMOTES IN Star Citizen Alpha 2.6 Star Marine

“In addition to everything else that comes with Star Marine, we have also implemented some basic combat signals to the keypad of the keyboard for Star Marine. These will broadcast at a much shorter range then a chat message or emote normally would, and allow players who are not in voice chat to convey very basic strategy to each other.” – From the Patch Notes
