    They should be. Without 3D spotting and nothing to replace that feature of communication there's no way to tell the team where the enemy is.

    When I spot enemy players they don't show up for the whole team? Are they only showing up for me or my squad?

    If you spot by Q (or console equivalent) then no. If you spot by flares or scope then yes.

    So if I mark a tank or an enemy while I'm downed and they get a red pip only my squad see that?

    If so that's almost completely useless and would explain why nothing ever happens when I mark anything.

    I have seen players react to my pings. It is difficult to see though

    Anyone now how near?

    I think they should be visible to anyone inside what would be the default mini-map sized area.

    That needs a clarification. Players near you or near the ping? Dice is infamous about having game mechanics and not explaining how exactly they work, or worse, that they are there at all.

    Pretty much. So if your squad isn't working together and you're surrounded by other members of your team, there's no way of alerting them of enemies.
