In Star Wars Battlefront 2015, I have noticed small black circles that have numbers in them next to locations of importance, such as control points.

Occasionally, they will have a yellow border, too. I am playing on an Xbox One, if it matters. Does anyone know what these mean?

  • I haven't played this in a couple months at this point, so I don't remember for sure. Could it be the indicator of the number of players in the zone?

  • @DCShannon That was my first guess, but I don't believe that is the case. I could be wrong though. Commented May 16, 2016 at 19:04
  • There definitely is an indicator of the number of players in the zone. If there's nothing else on the screen that might be that, then that's what it is.

There is a feature in which a player may point their gun in the general direction of the control point or objective indicator and press the use button, which on the Xbox One is X, to add a number to the existing total. Mainly used to show where you are concentrating your efforts, and this may be what you are seeing.
