The Pinging feature is a very useful mechanic and one you should get used to use. To Ping anything you simply press “Up” on the D-Pad. Pinging a target will immediately alert your allies to your ping. You can ping resources and ammo chests for your allies to grab, you can highlight certain enemies, request your team to extract. It’s a very useful feature and allows you to quickly and safely convey vital information to your squad.
This particular objective requires you to use the Ping feature to highlight nests. To Ping an enemy simply ensure your reticle is targeting the enemy and then press the Ping button. This will Ping the target, showing it on your squads heads up display, while simultaneously playing an audio file to alert them of what you have pinged.
For this objective the nests need to be out of melee reach, walls or ceilings. They are easy to find. Every mission is filled with nests so simply run around and ping them until you have enough to complete the mission.
