Pikmin 3 Deluxe will put your strength and wit to the test as you explore a mysterious planet full of adorable creatures that are known as Pikmin. Since you’ll need to control them and use them to fight monsters for you, knowing how to target things will help you out a lot. Here’s how to lock-on in Pikmin 3 Deluxe.
How to Lock-On in Pikmin 3 Deluxe
You can lock-on to items and enemies in Pikmin 3 Deluxe by pressing the ZR button when in range of something. For example, if you’re walking by some flowers with pellets inside of them, you can walk close to it and then press ZR to target it and then continuously press A to throw Pikmin at it.
You can also use this lock-on function to target monsters for your Pikmin to attack or charge. You can charge by pressing the X button to make your squad of Pikmin attack towards the direction that you’re facing.
Locking on is essential to ensuring that you’re aiming at the right object before you fling your precious Pikmin in the air. If you’re not careful, you can end up sending your Pikmin to death or in the mouth of an enemy.
Once you get used to the lock-on feature, you’ll be throwing Pikmin all over the place and making the most out of your day.
