Star Wars Squadrons Lock On

Your targeting system in Star Wars Squadrons can make a massive difference in battle. You really need to know about the targeting system of your Starfighter in order to win. In this Star Wars Squadrons guide, we are going to go over how you can lock on to an enemy ship.

How To Lock On To Enemy Ships In Star Wars Squadrons

The first thing that you need to do in order to lock on in the game is to find a target. There are plenty of enemy Starfighters around so you can easily find one in modes such as Fleet Battles. Once you have picked a target, you can start with the lock-on process. Line up the target in a way that it is centered or near the crosshair.

You will then get a notification that the lock on process has begun. Hold your target in the crosshair. If you fail to do that then you will not be able to lock on to the target. Once the lock on has been confirmed you can fire your weapon.

If you find that the current target is too difficult then you can change your target as well. There are five ways to switch targets which are as follows:

Auto-Target Attacked Hostiles Enabling this will select your next target based on what enemy you are shooting at.
Manual Reticle Targeting Press the Select Target button (T key on PC, LT on Xbox One, L2 on PlayStation 4, or JOY 2 on your joystick) to select anything that is directly in front of you.
Target My Attacker Double-tap the G key, A on Xbox One, Cross on PS4, or JOY 5. This targets whoever is currently shooting at you.
Cycle Targets Press F on PC, A on Xbox One, Cross on PS4, or JOY 5. This cycles through enemies that match the criteria in your Targeting Wheel. You can bring this up by holding the 5 key, LT, L2, or JOY 10.
Ally Ping  You can acknowledge an ally’s ping by double-tapping the B key, Y on Xbox One, Triangle on PS4, or JOY 8. This will select the pinged enemy as your target.
