Chat is the primary form of communication in Spiral Knights. A player can initiate chat by pressing the 'Enter' or the '/' key, which will open a text field, into which chat messages can be entered. Players can also use emotes to express themselves.

Players have the option to filter offensive curse words. You can access these settings from the options menu. By default, this filter is enabled.
