It is not that it is not working, it that your camera and lock are the same thing. It also will change to a different target in place of staying on the same target. Saying do not use a controller on a console game is not fixing anyting. You do not want it to be a problem. But it is a problem on the xbox. The xbox is a console that mainly uses a contoller. They ported it to console. It should work better than " well its better than nothing. "
You are making this a me problem when the is an issue with the auto lock. I am just reporting it, telling them they need to look at it. It makes playing the game not fun. It is not fun not being able to lock on to anything, or hitting the button and hoping. I glad it works well for you on pc. But it don't work well on console. Idk why mayhaps they had to change some things to get it on xbox. Or they just need to give us more options in keybinds.
Either way the way it is now is a bad product that makes them look bad. It can turn people away. I am just reporting it. I have no idea what you are doing here. But you do you bud.

Edit: A good example is that today 90% of my deaths were due to me having to run around to get a lock. I am a RNG. I am a cast. I should be able to lock on to what is in front of me when i hit the button and not what ever random add they picked to lock on. SH AM +11,+12 on Tundra both of those runs I had one death. From not being able to lock on to the thing charging me so I can dodge it. In stead it locked on to the left 1st and the back 2nd when I was already locked on to a Mammoth, I was just trying to lock on to it's button to kill it quick. In place of going up to the button, it changed to a wolf to my left/a yetti on a cliff behind me. That was not skill that was not user error, that was the auto lock not working well and costing me two s ranks on Advance SH mission. so 10 keys. That is a problem.
