Waypoint is an in-game tool to pinpoint an exact location in a level. It is used by pointing the reticule on the screen and pressing the waypoint hotkey (default: G ). Waypoints can be used to pinpoint any part of the level (except the skybox), but can also be used to pinpoint enemies, resources and consoles. To manually remove a waypoint, use the waypoint button while looking at the waypoint. An easier method is to stop moving and set the waypoint twice: once to set it at your reticule and twice to remove it. 


  • Amusingly, pinpointing a console will mark them as a Panic Button, most likely referring to the fact that enemies can lockdown a tileset.
