NOVA: IT’S THEEEEEEEE…BATTLEBORN PRE-GAME TAUNT SPAM DANCE-OFF SHOW!!!
crowd goes somehow even wilder
NOVA: BROUGHT TO YOU BYYYYYYYYY… @AncientBelgareth !!!
Ok, so, silliness aside, I am somewhat surprised that no one has posted about this yet!
Not too long ago, myself, @ancientbelgareth , @handsomecam , @SirWalrusCrow , @codarik , @beatrix (well myself plus 4 of the names I just listed, I was drunk!) were sitting at the character selection screen waiting for a match to start.
We were all just messing about with taunts and skins when, out of the blue, Belgareth just exclaims, “Guys, guys, look what I discovered!”
His Thorn (the deadliest of all Thorns, by the way) starts doing what appeared to be a strange little repetitive, twitchy dance.
So, as it turns out, if, during character selection and after having chosen a character, you go to the Taunt screen and select a taunt, you can then press Triangle so that everyone in your group can see / hear your taunt.
Taking this one step further, after pressing Triangle, but before the taunt ends, you can press L1, which will abruptly cancel the taunt animation, put your character back in the default pose, and bring you back to the Skin select screen. IF, after pressing Triangle then L1 in quick succession, you quickly press R1, you are right back on the Taunt screen with your current taunt still selected.
At this point, press Triangle, L1, R1 again quickly to repeat.
And then again.
And yet again…
The result will be that your character will very quickly and repeatedly do just the first part of their taunt animation and will look very twitchy / jerky.
The results are are amusing for every character, but, for certain characters, with certain taunts, it can be absolutely HYSTERICAL!
Thanks again for discovering this little gem, Belgareth!
