Gestures are emotes that you can perform to convey your feelings to other players or NPCs.
Use Triangle / Y to equip and arrange gestures at the menu.
On the Playstation 3 version of the game, you can hold the X button and use the Six-Axis controller to perform gestures. Also you can press SELECT and the gesture menu will pop up, then highlight the gesture you want and press X or A for PlayStation and Xbox respectively.
WARNING: When you are using a gesture you cannot move/attack until the gesture is finished, use at your own peril.
