Spotting is a concept in Insurgency. Spotting allows a player to call out enemies on the battlefield, and in some cases reveal them to other players.


The spotted enemies appear with as a triangular red marking in the cardinal direction called out by the player.

Spotted Enemy

Old spotting marker

  • Previous versions of the game had the player call out in the same manner, but had the enemy appear as a square red marker on the player and his teammates' HUD, as is shown in the image to the right. Spotting was done by pressing (not holding) the radial menu button while looking at an enemy. Note that the square red marker was a 2D marker, and not a 3D marker, thus, it would not move from its initial spotting location.
