Default DOTA 2 Taunt feature


Hello ladies and gentlemen.

Did anyone used the Taunt feature? Any additional information about how to use this in-game?

What does it actually do?

Thanks

Ryu performs a 'come at me, bro' gesture.

You'll need to find them first, then equip them like any other item.

I guess to use them you simply press a hotkey ingame

so that morons like you dont spam them all game.

i really like what they've done with this, you get a limited number of charges so you really have to choose when to call out your boast. i wouldnt be surprised if you get a battle points boost or a better chance to get a good item if your taunt is successful (your team wins).

What do you mean by "if your taunt is successful", can it be unsuccessful?

Like taunt in front of enemy face, with a huge long taunt animation.

You equip the items in your action slot and press the action-slot-key in-game.

The number of times you can use it is not limited.

It's apparently currently not working because it was causing server crashes. I assume Valve will fix it soon.

wow I just checked those taunts, they are awesome, unlimited use of course, you don't even need to target a hero to trigger them, you just click the taunt button and the hero does his thing, Axe's taunt is epic, Looks like I'm gonna play some lane axe xD

Default Re: DOTA 2 Taunt feature

Why not just drop in a /taunt and /joke?

The hero responses in Dota2 are already deep and varied and creative but that's maybe like the only thing I missed from LoL, being an asshat whilst you wait for creeps spawn as Gangplank standing next to a Katarina saying "wanna know why me Roger is so jolly?"

I mean it's something I could live without, but I'd want to see the /jokes on the dota2 heroes...
