When you’re playing with other players in Gears 5 or playing by yourself and want to keep track of a specific enemy you will want to use the spot tool to mark enemies. This can be done rather simply by using the trigger to zoom in and then pressing the thumbstick to mark them. Once you complete the mark you will see a target over the enemies head.
