I'm actually at the cemetery at White Orchard. There is a white question mark and some little red arrows.

What are this little red arrows?
Do they point to something dangerous?

    I also thought they are some enemies at first. Which was very confusing, especially in areas where there were clearly no enemies, no heartbeats visible or anything. Then I figured out what they are, and thought that red colour is a bad design choice (considering that red circles are enemies). Then I thought that otherwise, it would be hard to discern them, so maybe it is not so bad.

    These arrows are particularly helpful when there is something underground. One of the things I hate about Assassin's Creeds is those map markers which point to a place I can't find for life, only to end up reaching them through some obscure underground entrance (in a guide dangit moment). Wild Hunt does a good job of marking the cave entrances and telling us when something is underground.

Without a screenshot, I'm guessing you mean the (altitude) location indicators.

These little red arrows indicate that an object is above (arrow points upwards) or below (arrow points downwards) your current location.

    Can I make a screenshot inside the game? I have not found a working keyboard key for that :(

    @PeterCo - Yeah, I read that taking screenshots in witcher 3 can be difficult. Someone asked a question about that, so that might help.

  • Exactly my thought. This can easily be confirmed if the arrow shows together with another icon.
