The Ping Wheel.

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 / RB by default. Holding the button brings up the ping wheel.

Location pings

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