Overview Edit


Taunt info

To see a list of all Taunts in Blacklight: Retribution click here.

Taunts are generally used to make fun of an opposing player or to communicate with teammates who do not use TeamSpeak or any other form of visual or verbal communication. When performed immediately after killing an enemy, taunts grant a small bonus CP.

All taunts can only be purchased with ZCoin.

Default Taunt Edit

All players have the Wag taunt when they start the game.

Rewards Edit

  • Short: Performing a short taunt after eliminating an opponent rewards 5 CP.
  • Medium: 8 CP
  • Normal: 10 CP
  • Long: When a long emote gets performed right after an enemy has been killed, the performer gets a small reward of 12 CP for taunting his fallen opponent. One example of a long emote is Bow.
  • Extreme: When an "extreme" emote gets performed, you get 15 CP. Extreme emotes are used by Heroes. One such example is Robot Dance by MARS.

Using Taunts Edit

Radial Menu to select a Taunt

The standard shortcut to use a taunt in-game is 't'. To select between different taunts that a player has equipped, press and hold 't' to display the taunt selection interface.

This interface consists of a radial menu that lets players select a specific taunt by moving the mouse in the corresponding direction. The newly selected taunt can then be used by pressing the 't' key.

Taunt Variations Edit

Within Blacklight: Retribution taunts are categorized by several different keywords.

Mobile Taunts allow you to move while performing them.

Trivia Edit

Originally, when Blacklight: Retribution was released there were no taunts that could be purchased with GP. Most were given away for free through events, like War Dog or Troll Face.
