Pinging & Marking Locations

There are two ways to Ping in Borderlands 3. The first, is using a shortcut. On PC, you can ping by pressing X, whilst on PS4 or Xbox One, you can press D-Pad Up. 

Pinging a location

Wherever you are pointing your crosshair when pressing this button, you will ping a location for other players in your game to see. It’s visible cross map and through walls, so people know where to head to.

Quick access wheel

Otherwise, you can use the quick access wheel. This is a wheel that holds emotes, the duelling option and an option for opening photo mode. If you’re playing on PC, open this menu by holding Z. Whilst you can hold down the START button on PS4 or Xbox. Select the crosshair icon to ping.
