I just started playing Dark Souls 3 on PC. I get it's meant to be played on gamepad, so I grabbed my X360.

But I can't figure out which button is used for target lock/release. It says R, with an arrow above it pointing down. I tried RB and RT but obviously it's not it. So which button shouls I use?


It's the other R button: clicking the right control stick into the controller.

  • No, it's different. There's the right stick, represented by R, which controls the camera. And there's this R, with an arrow above it pointing down, which should control target lock/release. – Hikari Apr 28 '16 at 2:43
  • There's also L which is the left stick, used to walk, and there's the L, with an arrow above it pointing down which is used to "while dashing, use to jump". To dash, I use L and hold B. If I just press B he "evades", if I hold it he dashes/runs. So, if I press L, with an arrow above it pointing down while using L to walk and hold B to dash, he'll jump. – Hikari Apr 28 '16 at 2:46

    That symbol "R with an arrow above it pointing down" indicates pushing the stick into the controller until it clicks, not moving it in any direction. – murgatroid99 Apr 28 '16 at 2:50

    Similar to R3 and L3 on playstation. – user106385 Apr 28 '16 at 3:38
