Where did the issue occur? In a match
Which part of the map or menu were you in? If you don't remember the exact name, please describe the area or what you were trying to do in the menu. The error takes place in the map screen

How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
How severe is your issue? Major impacts to gameplay
What happens when the bug occurs? When trying to set a Waypoint on the Map screen with customized controls that have Ping set to any button but its default button, nothing happens. Nothing happens when you hit the default button or the button you switched it to.
What should be happening instead? I should be able to set a Waypoint
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Go into controller presets, change your controller layout to Customized and switch Ping/ Ping Wheel (Hold) to something else. Then in a game, try to set a Waypoint on the Map Screen.

Did not try all button options. Tested with several D-Pad Buttons and X. Squadmate was able to replicate the bug. Attempted in both 3 Player and 2 Player game modes.

@satanisboss13 Same issue - I have ping set to L1 and haven't been able to ping the map since custom controls were added.
