Sometimes the pinging system stops working for whatever reason. Both the button that alerts people of enemies and the general middle mouse scroll wheel button. It does it randomly and repeatedly. Please fix it.

Let's see if these steps do the trick in fixing this:

 

  1. Right-clicking on the game in your Origin client and select "Repair." 
  2. Unplug your mouse for 30 seconds.
  3. Reset your key bindings in game back to default and then reconfigure them.

Same here, noticed that F button (ping enemy) randomly doesn't work. You have to double or even tripple press sometimes. Started recently don't know why. Nothing has changed.

@EA_Blueberry I tried this but did not work. This bug is random and cannot be reproduced normally.

What keys or mouse buttons do you have assigned for pings? Does it do it for you when it's binded to a different key?

the default butttons, which are f: enemy spotted
middle mouse scroll wheel button: pinging normally or other options if you hold it.
@EA_Blueberry 

When I use to bind the middle mouse scroll wheel to keybutton x, it would still do the same.

 

When the bug occurs, both f and the mouse button stop working.
