Animated Stickers are a variant of stickers introduced in the 12.6.0 update. They are different from Chat Stickers. 6 more stickers were added in the 16.0.0 update,
Animated Stickers are exclusively found in Siege, Duel and Team Strike and they can only be used in countdowns, before and after a match. They animatedly provide an expression for about 3 seconds. Tapping on the newbie head button will provide a panel containing 10 stickers. The panel will collapse about 5 seconds if untouched. Currently, Newbie is the only one who appears in these stickers and makes an expression.
|Laughing Sticker||It indicates that the player is laughing. At times, players use this sticker to laugh at many other players using the angry sticker multiple times. Another possibility is if a player equipped a hilarious skin.|
|Happy Sticker||It indicates that the player is symbolically saying "Nice kill!" or "Great job killing those players.", as the sticker itself indicates Newbie doing a double thumbs up. An alternative expression is that the player is confident/happy or is ready for the battle.|
|Sad Sticker||It indicates that the player is sad or crying. There are no precise reasons why players usually use this sticker, but it is possible that this sticker is used, mainly because they are tired of losing, and expect a victory or two.|
|Angry Sticker||It indicates that the player is angry or outraged. It is most commonly used when there is a player on the opposing team who equips more high-tier weapons, such as the Anti-Champion Rifle or the Minigun Shotgun. Another common reason why this sticker is used, especially in Siege, is because there are 8 to 9 players that are excessively waiting for a player or two to join the server to begin the battle. In other times, it indicates that the player is outraged because they are losing or are just not doing well in a battle.|
|Flex Sticker||It indicates that the player is happy and is currently feeling superior compared to other teammates. Players usually flex on weaker and/or losing opponents. Flexing, also called Bone Breaking, is a style of street dance from Brooklyn, New York that is characterized by rhythmic contortionist movement combined with waving, tutting, floor moves, and gliding.|
|Dab Sticker||It indicates that the player is likely happy, and something personally good happened to them, which is why they would tend to do the dab dance. The dab is a gesture in which a person drops the head into the bent crook of a slanted, upwardly angled arm, while raising the opposite arm out straight in a parallel direction. They would likely do it if they feel like if they (will) win, the opponents are weak or if a player left.|
|Thumbs Down Sticker||It indicates that the player hates another player. It shows Newbie directly pointing out a player and giving them a thumbs down. This usually happens when a player hates this round or hates a specific player themselves, or it could maybe even be directed to teammates not working hard enough to win the match.|
|Take The L Sticker||In indicates that the other player, or the players of the other team, is/are loser(s). It shows Newbie doing an L hand gesture on his head and directly telling the opponents are losing or are losers in general.|
|Facepalm Sticker||It indicates a facepalm. A facepalm is the physical gesture of placing one's hand across one's face or lowering one's face into one's hand or hands, covering or closing one's eyes. The gesture is often exaggerated by giving the motion more force and making a slapping noise when the hand comes in contact with the face. This usually happens when a player (a teammate, usually) did something dumb.|
|Friend Request Sticker||It indicates that the player needs a friend. They would more likely do it in duels, and request for them to accept a friend request, or tell them to add them. They could also ask for a friend request to whatever player. The sticker indicates Newbie holding a friend request sign.|
