The reason you might be confused about how to mark enemies in Fortnite is that the terminology is different from what most players are used to. Instead of saying that we have 'marked' an enemy, we will usually say that we have 'pinged' an enemy.

So, to mark an enemy in Fortnite, you must use the ping system. The ping system in Fortnite lets you mark items, players, and areas on the map for the rest of your squad to see. If you look at an enemy player while pressing the ping button, it will mark them.

It's possible to change the ping button in the settings menu. However, if you still have the default settings enabled, then you will need to press the middle mouse button while playing on PC. Those playing on Xbox, PlayStation, or Nintendo Switch can press the left d-pad button to achieve the same result.
