The messages aren't always right for the PC.

On the PC you can have mouse aiming which doesn't lock-on or you can have joystick aiming which does lock on. But the messages (at Emmet's) talk about locking on whichever controller type you've selected.

I prefer the mouse aiming because that lets you choose your target and if you're a reasonable shot then you don't really need lock-on. It can sometimes lock-on to the wrong target and you waste time in changing the target you're locked on to. With the mouse you just aim and fire biggrin.gif

I've seen a lot of other people that have tried both say that they prefer the mouse aiming as well. It is different and will take a little whle to get used to. But give it a go.

Auto-Aim with Keyboard and Mouse.
Easiest way is to get a USB GamePad (12 button minimum). If you already have a console game, Adapter cables are available. Then you can play like on the consoles. Much more fun than keyboard and mouse and this game is designed for GamePad use.

OR if you must use the Keyboard and Mouse then:
Aim Weapon = [Del] key or [Caps] lock key
or [RMB] Right Mouse button.

Next target = E or [Enter] key
or [MWU] Mouse Wheel Up.

Previous target = Q or [.] on Num Pad
or [MWD] Mouse Wheel Down.

Fire Weapon = [0] on Num Pad or Left [Ctrl] key
or [LMB] Left Mouse Button.

Manual page 7.
And if you are using a LapTop then you must engage the blue [FN] key to activate the imbedded num pad (around keys JKL)

Change the controller to Joystick in Controller configuration from the Options menu and you'll have auto-aim. However, you'll lose the free look of the mouse.
