Gestures are player actions in Dark Souls II. A few are received at the start of the game, and more are taught by certain NPCs throughout the game. Usually to learn the gesture one has to exhaust all dialogue with the NPC.

Unlike the first Dark Souls, players can cancel out of a gesture's animation by rolling or backstepping.

Learning all 20 gestures unlocks the Achievement/Trophy "Gesture Maestro", worth 50 Gamerscore or a Silver Trophy respectively.
