Biomutant: How to Lock-On to Enemies

More often than not, you’re going to be facing multiple enemies at once in Biomutant. When this happens, you’ll likely want to lock-on to a particular enemy so you can focus your attacks on them and clear your foes out one at a time. While Biomutant does have a lock-on system available, it works a little differently to how the feature has been used in other titles.

Locking-on is done automatically in Biomutant, but there are two ways to do this.

How to Lock-On in Biomutant

If you’re using melee weapons to attack, simply walk toward the enemy you want to lock-on to and the game should automatically target them.

For ranged attacks such as the boomerang or your guns, locking-on is done by moving the on-screen reticle over an enemy with the right analog stick.

When this is done, you’ll then be able to let go of the right analog stick. Your reticle should lock-on to the enemy until you change to a melee weapon or intentionally move your reticle onto a different enemy.

While the system works fairly well during the beginning of the game, we found it to be a little hit-and-miss during more intense fights with lots of enemies. Sometimes we’d be locked-on to the enemy we wanted to; other times the game wouldn’t lock-on at all, or shifted our sights onto another enemy randomly. Here’s hoping a fix comes in the near future.

Can You Manually Lock-On?

Unfortunately, no, there’s no input by default that allows you to enable the lock-on or manually select the enemy you want to focus the camera on.

That’s everything you need to know about how the Biomutant lock-on to enemies mechanic works. For more tips, tricks and guides, head over to our wiki, or see more on the game below.
