The first part you need to pay attention to is “in the open”. This ability will not work if the enemy is inside a builder or another interior without direct view of the sky, as the drop comes from above. If your enemy is still in the open and pressing Y does not launch his Ultimate Ability, it’s because you have yet to mark the target.

The default setting for marking a target is to aim directly at the target, so they are the focus of your reticle,then press in the left stick. That will mark the target. You can then simply press Y to launch JD’s Artillery Strike.
