Apex Legends Pings Guide & Explanation

The ping system in Apex Legends is revolutionary, it takes the communication onto another level. Just move your crosshair to the desired location and release a command on that marked object to give your team useful information.

How to use the Apex Legends Pings:
It is useful to setup single pings in Apex Legends that you use often.

It’s quite hard in combats to open the wheel hold it and to choose the right direction. This can lead to a disadvantage in fight or if you are in a hurry you move the wheel not precisely and hit a different command, which can wipe out the whole team! 😉
Choose 2-3 extra keys if you can and stick with it! It is important to have fast reactions and an easy time to give information to the team.
