Coordination is key when it comes to winning Call of Duty: Warzone matches. The battlefield is full of items, equipment, and weapons, to say nothing of the hundred other players also trying to make it out alive. It’s wise to point out any hostiles you may see, and the easiest way to do that is by learning how to ping an enemy. Fortunately, the system has been made as simple as possible.
Warzone | How to ping enemies
To ping an enemy in Warzone, focus your crosshair on the target, then press the Ping button. That’s Up on the controller’s D-Pad or Left Alt on PC. If you ping an enemy, a red marker will appear over their head, identifying them as a target.
Pinging in Warzone can be used to point out more than enemies, however. It can be used to highlight any in-game location, such as quiet path or potential hideout. Using it to highlight objects will display an icon of that item, which is useful for pointing out gear or weapons for your teammates. You can even place a marker on certain areas using the Tac Map.
Pinging also makes it possible to point out potential enemies or enemy locations. Even if you don’t see another player directly (or can’t place your crosshair over them), you can highlight hostile forces by pressing the Ping button twice. The same red marker that gets placed over marked opponents will appear, identifying the location as dangerous.
It’s important to ping enemies in Call of Duty: Warzone. Your teammates need to know as much as they can about hostile forces, including their locations. Pinging is also a smart way to point out any sort of interesting item or location, especially weapons. The more your teammates know, the better their chances of survival will be.
