Shooters and ping systems have gone together quite well this year. Apex Legends introduced its own ping system that proved rather useful, and Fortnite adopted a similar mechanic soon after, allowing you to communicate targets and useful items to teammates in-game without the need for a mic, something that Borderlands 3 is now adopting as well.
Just like with Apex Legends, this ping system is contextual, as you can see in the video below. Point at an enemy and a red target will be placed on them, for example, and chests can also be highlighted for that all-important loot, each of which comes with a witty one-liner from your character.
Are you glad to see a ping system in there?
