The bearing (also called peleng) can mark places on the map. The player can mark any point with his bearing and he will get the direction and distance shown on his minimap.

The bearing can also be placed by a base, which follows certain mechminds or marks other places, where the player should go. Sometimes missions create a static bearing which stays on the map forever.

Since the network was established by the Reckoners, bearings can be also set on mechminds for 1000 energy crystals.
