A few days after the release of MW3, players queuing up the Search and Destroy game mode might have noticed a key part of the game missing. As of writing this article, players cannot ping while playing a normal match of Search and Destroy. What’s more, developers have stated on their official Trello issues board that this problem is currently under investigation. But the removal of pings was actually a decision made on their part.

It seems at launch, dead players could exploit the ping system in order to help their teammates and give them an unfair advantage. Furthermore, removing the ping system from S&D altogether seems to have not made players too happy.

However, given the news that came out after the game’s release, stating the development cycle of MW3 was a rocky one might be a reason why so many integral gameplay systems are malfunctioning. Unfortunately, there isn’t any way to fix this on the player’s side of things. We’ll just have to wait and see when these problems get fixed and hope you don’t need to ping anything.
