Ping button to warn teammates the storm is coming?

I play with randoms most of the time and 90% of the time they don't have mics or won't leave party chat. I'll often be running away from the incoming storm (in most cases this happens with the round one storm closing), pinging ahead of me repeatedly in hopes teammates will follow. Yet, a lot of times they'll keep taking their sweet old time looting and screwing around. Sometimes I think that they're just unaware that the storm is about to come and swallow them despite the announcer's warnings and the occasional character voice line. I think it'd be handy to have a ping option that effectively warns "hey you slow ass mfs, the storm is comin' and we gotta gtfo." This would be even more useful in ranked mode and later-round storm closings. What do you guys think?

edit: Wanted to clarify what I had in mind. I'm thinking of a ping like "attacking here" or "looting here" so that you could ping a destination and it'd pop up with an icon and your character could say something like "Friends, the ring is coming and we should run!" (channelling Pathfinder there) I don't think the current character warning voice lines are freqent enough and can easily be misheard ignored on accident.
