How to deal with obsolete answers?

As StackOverflow has gotten older and the recommended way of doing things has evolved over time. A feature was proposed earlier, but it sounds complicated. Without a feature to support marking something as stale, what is the etiquette for handling such an answer? Leaving a comment on the answer that it's no longer up to date? Providing an alternate answer that calls out that something has changed?

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

I think the better Idea would be to have a tag associated by the moderator or subject matter expert to that question which calls something like obsolete answer or stale-answer or something like that. We already have these tags like status-by-design, status-completed, status-declined, that are setup by moderators only/ May be the user who has maximum reps about that topic can set that flag.
