Xpilot : Newbieguide  : Locking on to players

When you lock on to a player, you can easily hunt him. He is now the blinking dot on the radar, and the blue dot on your HUD tells you which way to fly. The bigger the blue dot, the closer you are to him. When it start blinking, he is real close.

I locked Tanx

When you have locked a player

And when you have locked a player you can fire smart missiles at him or use your tractorbeam on him.

Is there a way to UNlock? I sometimes wish for this when on a map that has enabled remote viewing. I would like to see my own vicinity before unpausing.

No there isn't. A lock can only dissappear if the player you've locked onto quits.
On the other hand, you can't see your own vicinity either when you've just joined the game.
