Com Alerts is a brand new system that allows pilots to quickly send messages to their teammates. These messages allow you to notify your teammates of what you are doing, what you’re planning next, or what you want your teammates to do. Com Alerts are only available in multiplayer, and non-objective-based game modes will only have select messages available to send.
