P-body's "Thumbs Up" gesture.

Gestures are special animations which players can activate during co-op gameplay. Gestures are contained as separate items in the 'Gesture' slot. There are eight default gestures for both Atlas and P-body, and 8 purchasable gestures.

Performing a gesture during the co-op campaign will at times cause GLaDOS to make a satirical comment upon how much you resemble 'humans'. Performing gestures also act as criteria for certain achievements.

Trivia

  • The purchasable gestures can be performed using the command "taunt gesturename" in the developer console. This is however, not possible to do when playing with a PlayStation 3 player.
