I'm fairly new to the Assassins Creed series, and one thing that's been bugging me like crazy is locking on to enemies. Sometimes, when I'm running away from guards, I end up accidently locking on to one of them, making me unable to run around at my leisure.

How do I get rid of lock on?

Just press the same button. On x360, you press RT to lock on an enemy and the same button to unlock IIRC. – deutschZuid Feb 11 '13 at 6:11
So, if I press e again, I'll instantly de-lock from enemies? – Retrosaur Feb 11 '13 at 6:22
Have you tried? – deutschZuid Feb 11 '13 at 6:50
As I'm assuming you are playing this on the PC, have you checked your keybind settings. That would be the easiest way to find out if your target lock-on/lock-off keys are the same. If they aren't then problem solved. If they are, then try changing them. There may in all honesty be a button combination you have to press to lock-off a target, like "ctrl + e". – Ravekner Feb 11 '13 at 14:58
@turbo - The underline system didn't change but AC2 combat was very different then BH and Revelations. – Ramhound Feb 11 '13 at 16:19
