How to Ping Enemies in Battlefield 2042
In many games, the Ping Function has been a very effective tool in communication with your Allies. With a game as massive as Battlefield 2042 is, this tool is very valuable. Mastering the use of this tool can make a difference between good and amazing teammates. To Ping an Enemy, you will have to press:
- Q Key on the PC
- R1 trigger button on the PS
- RB bumper on the Xbox
This will highlight a point in the direction you are looking and your allies will be able to see it. After a while, it will fade away but if you ping at an enemy, vehicle, or any other point of interest, the ping will stay for a longer time. Ping such entities and locations and it will alert your allies for either danger like snipers, campers or to take the objective. This isn’t a foolproof tool as with bad weather conditions it gets difficult to ping enemies. But with bad weather rises the best way to use the Ping Tool.
In conditions like a Tornado, you will be able to get to higher elevations. If you are playing as Sundance then deploy your Wingsuit. With this, you will get a birds-eye view of the map and can ping locations very easily. Your Enemies will be unaware that their location is being compromised.
