Callouts are short, pre-made, translated messages that can be used to quickly communicate to teammates. They are created from the Callouts menu, which can be brought up by pressing H (the default key). All callouts are shown within square brackets (i.e. [ Follow me ]) and are translated to the player's set language.

HUD Callouts

Callout menu

The HUD menu contains text and marker callouts, which can be used every 10 seconds. Selecting any of them will post their message in the local chat and show it above above the player's head for 3 seconds. Selecting a marker callout allows the player to select a point on the ground, where it will travel from the player to the selected point and be visible to all nearby friendly players (marker is visible for 20 seconds). Enemy markers cannot be seen, however the message will be seen, just like regular local chat messages.
