I may be misunderstanding the question, but isnt it just a quick tap of L1 or R1, depending on which direction the intended "new" target is, in relation to the one youre presently locked on to? I feel like that applies for vehicle mounted weapons or handheld, but im not at my controller right now to be 100%. Sorry if i misread something in your post and this is not what youre referring to.
Ok. I run STD FPS, and i believe those functions dont differ btwn us, but either way, i may be thinking of different circumstances too. Are we talking NPC targets in missions etc.? Or other players? I truly dont know if there would be any difference other than what your targeting option is set to in your interaction menu, as far as strangers/friends/anyone, but i feel like i regularly do the L1 or R1 taps to switch my already locked on reticle left or right, when dealing with crowds of NPCs in heists or missions. As i dont remember the last time i engaged another online player, im not 100% that the same applies. Forgive me if im mis-remembering the muscle memory and those arent the correct sequence of controls, i will be checking when i make it back online for sure.
Yeah, thats exactly the scenario im envisioning, too. Gang attacks, even the NPC clusters in grinding missions, Cleaning the Cathouse comes to mind, when maneuvering around the hotel and the NPCs are popping in and out of doorways. This is also usually in a Buzzard with the automatic Homing picking them up, at which point i would do the L1 or R1 taps to switch from target to target.
I truly feel like i do the same thing on foot with rifles and such, the "Signal" setup on Pac Std being an example. Ill hit the island, drop the chopper, take cover behind the rock and target the first guy i lock onto. Now heres where im just going from muscle memory, lol, but i feel like i do the same taps to switch to guys on different areas of the island, always holding my L2 to retain the aiming down sights/targeting mode. I will sure mess with it when i get back to LS this eve. Sorry i couldnt be more help now though man.
Okay, it is L1 and R1 but it doesn't seem to work on NPC / Players. It only works for the homing missile when locking on to vehicles. While locked onto vehicles you click L1 and R1 and it switches vehicles. I'm not sure if there is a way for pedestrians / online players.
In the prologue it tells you to flick the left thumbstick to change targets. Not pressing it down to click, but a flick. LolI can confirm this (just tested it now). Seems like the only switching we can do is with the Lock On rocket with L1 and R1. Well that's a shame because I was so sure we had the ability to swap/switch between targets. Maybe I got it confused with a GTA function from another game in the series. Hmmm.
Load GTA V and go straight into the Story Mode, once there hit Options (Start) then Settings and on the Control settings, change your targeting mode from Assisted Aim Partial to Assisted Aim Full. This is what all the players who RnG use in order to switch between targets faster. When you have changed the settings to Assisted Aim Full, use the right analogue stick and flick left & right to switch between targets when aimed in on someone. This works for both online players & AI. Remember to save your story mode before entering online to keep your settings this way.Yeah. Basically I'd love to be able to change targets after having locked on rather than having to tap L2 to keep trying to get my aim locked onto the target I want to shoot.
Anyone know a way to do this?
