I started playing this awesome game a few days ago, but i have a few questions about locking (targeting) enemy ships.
- I have the locking option (in game settings) set to Automatic, but it rarely actually does the automatic lock.
Usually i still have to press R to get it to lock… which is kinda opposite of what the Automatic lock is supposed to do
Is there any way to make the game automatically “spam” lock on the enemy ship that my crosshair is currently over?
- When i am running away on my fast ships i sometimes get chased by equally fast enemy ships.
It would greatly help my escape if i could somehow lock onto the enemy chasing ship while he is behind me - but i do not know how to do that?!
I can’t turn my camera (in free look mode) to face the chasing enemy since then i would not see where my ship is flying (usually flying around rocks/debree so i need to constantly manuver).
So what is the fastest and easiest way to get a lock on someone who is behind me, and possibly behind a rock/wall as he is chasing me? (i tried using the Auto lock and Defensive lock options, but they just dont work)?
- Quite often it happens that my lock breaks for absolutely no reason!
This happens on pretty much all my ships, but is most often on the Harpy (first empire sniper).
Nearly every time i fire one of Harpy’s missiles, i lose the target lock on the enemy and then i have to relock.
It happens regardless of what ship i am attacking (even on the big Envoy and Raptor frigates) and it is quite annoying.
Thank you for reading and helping me out
