After practicing with the Call of Duty: Vanguard alpha, many players are asking for a spotting system to mark enemies and objects. This useful feature makes communicating with teammates quick and easy, both in previous CoD titles and other FPS games. But is there a Call of Duty: Vanguard ping system? Here is the information needed to mark enemies to locate them on the game HUD for allied players.

Can you ping enemy players in Call of Duty: Vanguard?



Call of Duty: Vanguard does not have a ping mechanic to mark enemies and items for teammates in the game. Warzone and Black Ops Cold War allow players to spot enemies, although CoD: Vanguard ditches the series ping system.

Last weekend's Call of Duty: Vanguard alpha test didn't involve pinging, much to the disappointment of many players. It is possible that a CoD: Vanguard ping system is in the final version of the game (or the next beta), although there is no confirmation yet. Hopefully, Sledgehammer Games and Activision will listen to player requests and implement a spotting mechanic before launch.

Apex Legends popularized the contextual ping system in 2019, many games have adopted it since then. Among them are the two previous Call of Duty games: Warzone and Black Ops Cold War. The system allows users to communicate quickly and easily without the use of voice communications, making it especially useful for those who dislike conversing with strangers.

If there is no Call of Duty: Vanguard ping mechanic present at launch, it may be coming in a post-launch update or patch. That said, it could also be a design decision that Sledgehammer is watching. Previous entries in Sledgehammer Games' Call of Duty franchise do not feature the ping mechanic, so the developer may fail to re-mark opponents.
