Battle Royale games are almost unimaginable without a ping system now, thanks to Apex Legends’ excellent introduction of them. Now that Call of Duty’s new battle royale mode is finally here, you need to get to grips with the system quickly if you’re after that vital W. So that you’re not wasting time trying to work it out yourself, here’s everything you need to know about how to Ping Enemies in Call of Duty Warzone.
Pinging Enemies allows you to place a red marker where danger is, or even follow a specific enemy or vehicle for a short period of time.
How to Ping Enemies in Call of Duty Warzone
The answer is a little more complex than it should be. Recently, Activision changed some of the buttons in the game as part of an update, making it so that most players have Ping set to R1 if you’re playing on PS4 (RB on Xbox One).
However, the original setting is so much easier, so we’d recommend going into the settings menu, either from the lobby menu or by going to Settings when pausing a game, and reverting the controls back to Default. Then, ping will be set to up on the d-pad, which makes it a lot easier to use.
However, whether you’ve changed the buttons already or have got used to the changed ones, the input to ping enemies in Call of Duty Warzone is the same. You just need to look in the direction of the enemy and press the ping button twice.
If you’re marking where an enemy has been, a red diamond will appear on the screen for you and your team, while actually looking at an enemy and pressing ping twice will put a red marker over their head and follow them for a few seconds. You need to aim right at them for it to work though, and it cannot be done while aiming down sights.
That’s everything you need to know about how to Ping Enemies in Call of Duty Warzone. For more tips and tricks on the game, be sure to search for Twinfinite.
