There will be Soft Lock On, to prevent mass confusion in huge AvAvA battles.

Does that mean like if u fire in the range of the soft lock , it will lock on
eg. say if there was a red box around the target and you fired within the red area it would lock on

= ) read this, it will explain way bather then i ever could:

"Would you please explain the soft locking system in detail? For example, how does it interact with dodge? Does it apply to melee attacks, or just ranged? During missile travel time, is it possible for another target to intervene between you and your existing soft lock target to take the attack? – By Matt Feisthammel

You must be facing your target to hit it. However, soft locking allows you to pick a target out of a crowd to hit. It is possible that your target could be behind another target. You would hit the target you had soft-locked, provided you were aiming at them. Another target could not step in the way of the soft-locked target to prevent you from hitting your soft-locked target. As for dodging? The target can execute a roll dodge or evasion move to avoid attack. "
