Does anyone actually use the lock on?

I can't stand it. Just like I always thought about Monster Hunter, the lock on ability adds absolutely nothing and makes it harder to maneuver your character where you want them to be. Locking on to an enemy encourages you to just run right up to it instead of making it easier to move around it however you like.

Sometimes I accidentally lock on to enemies and it drives me bat**** until I can get it to turn off again, it's that bad.

It helps me for aiming when I play hunter. Other than hunter, no I do not.

I use it for bosses but not for the normal enemies.

Once in a while I will lock an enemy though, just to figure out what they are called. After that I will unlock and fight.

'Only for bosses'. The one enemy where you wouldn't want to do it at all...

it actually helps when bosses have a particular spot that is more vulnerable than the rest of their body.

couldnt it just mean you suck with lock on?

i use both lock on and off and if u cant dodge with lock on or as u save maneuver properly then thats an issue on your end and not a problem with the lock on system.

the lock on is fine and you can maneuver easily with it. its just you.
