In free roam there isn’t an option to set a way point. Free roam desperately needs this so you don’t have to constantly check the map and make sure you are going in the right direction. Also we should be able to ping events and titans(like apex legends) so everyone in free roam can help out if they wanted to. I’ve read many reddit users say the same things and believe this is a common issue.
Waypoints, while nice would only help one issue. What the free play map truly needs is event and titan markers with timers to let you know how much longer then even will last.
