Marvel’s Avengers continues to improve with each update. The latest update, patch 1.3.6, was released a few days ago. It added a much-needed feature to the game: the Ping system. The new Ping feature is going to make the gameplay experience a lot smoother. You can instruct AI teammates to do a certain task like break open doors, or let your human allies know what you're up to. More usage of the ping will also come in future updates. Playing with friends is also going to be easier as you can accurately communicate with them.

The update is live on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. The Stadia version of the update will release soon. Check out the highlights of the update below. The complete patch notes are mentioned on the official site.


*UPDATE: The current ping system allows players only to instruct AI teammates to smash and hack doors. We will be implementing additional functionalities in future phases of the ping system, and apologize for the miscommunication.

In patch 1.3.6 we’ve added the ping system so many of you have been requesting!

So how does the system work?

  • The ping system is accessible by aiming with the trigger and using the reticle to highlight areas or objects you want to ping. Once highlighted, pressing up on the D-pad will activate a ping notification.
  • When aiming at pingable objects the reticle will turn red, except for when doing a generic location ping. In this case, the reticle will remain white.
  • Pinging interactive areas like hacking stations or smashable doors will direct your AI companions to run over and do the required action.
  • Pinged items will remain pinned to the screen and use a distance indicator when they have moved off screen.
  • All items except enemies will show a ping prompt when targeted. Enemies don’t show this so not to disrupt the flow of combat – but don’t worry, they’ve been marked!
  • Dismissing a ping is simple – just aim at pinged item and “dismiss” UI will pop up.
  • It’s worth noting that the ping functionality doesn’t extend to doors which require the Avengers to assemble in order to progress – the player must still engage with those terminals, so that they maintain control over mission progression.
