How to ping enemies in Modern Warfare 2

Why can’t I ping enemies in MW2?
You can’t ping enemies in MW2 because there’s currently a glitch with the pinging feature.
The glitch will retain your ping after death.
In other words, the ping will remain in the game and on the enemy until it ends.
At the time of writing, the pinging feature is disabled and there is no ETA on when it’ll be re-enabled.
A user by the name of rennlee_ on TikTok posted a video of the glitch.
To carry out the glitch, you need to ping the enemy as soon as you’re killed.
As long as your cam was on the enemy, you’ll have a permanent live ping even if they died and respawned.
