Pings are callouts for communication with teammates without the need for voice or text communication. They cover many actions such as marking enemies, announcing loot, calling "dibs" on announced loot, telling teammates where you are going, and many others. Each ping triggers a voice line from your legend, and a text message in the chat if enabled.

Pings are bound to Middle / RB / R1 by default. Holding the button brings up the ping wheel.

Location pings[edit | edit source]

These pings put a marker on the map for everyone in your squad.

Basic ping[edit | edit source]

By default, the basic ping triggers a "let's go here" voice line. However, it can also be used to highlight and vocally point out items, map features, or enemy ability usage. The following things can be pinged with unique voice lines:

The 'Someone's Been Here' ping is also used when Bloodhound pings Tracker.png Tracker clues indicating enemy movement. When the clues indicate combat, the Ping Recent Battle.png Recent Battle ping is used instead.
