Dota 2 Wiki

The Loadout screen allows players to equip cosmetic items. It can be accessed from the main menu, or during pre-game after picking a hero. Equipped items can be changed during games, and will be reflected in-game.

A hero's Loadout stance and animations can be modified by Kinetic Gems and certain cosmetic items.
