If you’re wondering how to mark enemy players in Fortnite to complete a weekly quest or alert your teammates to incoming danger, our simple guide has all the answers you need.

One of the most useful features in Fortnite is the ability to use markers to highlight weapons, landing spots, or other players to your teammates. This is even more important if you don’t have voice chat.

Marking enemies can be the difference between staying alive or getting eliminated when you’re playing in Duos, Trios, or Squads – so you’ll find instructions on how to mark enemies in Fortnite below.

How to mark enemies in Fortnite

The easiest way to mark enemies in Fortnite is to successfully raise a Capture Point, as this will highlight any nearby enemies for you and your teammates.

Capture Points can be found in every major location on the map. Just be aware that nearby enemies will be able to hear the flag when it’s rising, so if it’s a busy location you’ll probably face some opposition.

The second way to mark enemy players in Fortnite is to get the new Tracker’s Armory Augment. After you activate this, you’ll get a Shadow Tracker and a Flare Gun, which can both be used to mark enemies.

Augments are given out at random during each match, but you will have the option to ‘reroll’ if you don’t get the one you’re looking for. We’ve got a Reality Augments guide if you’re unsure how to use them.

It’s worth mentioning that ‘pinging’ enemies by double tapping the ‘place marker’ button will not count towards any quest that asks you to mark enemy players, so don’t waste time trying that method.

It was previously possible to use the Falcon Scout item to mark enemies, but that item has been vaulted for a while now.

Whichever method you use, be aware of your surroundings, as any time you spend trying to mark enemies could be leaving you vulnerable to damage.
