press your defined identify key when looking at the person. It usually locks on to the closest person that's in front of you.

I add...guided missile does NOT lock onto Stealth. Alot of people don't know about lock on, which when you don't have GM, tells you who you are "looking at" by using the hotkey you have set for it. Helpful should someone have the team flag and not know it, you can tell them. You should review the options for what key on your board or button on your mouse does what, and there are many extras to check out. I set "tab" as my lock on, look at button.

Yeah, this gets really annoying. Especially when you jump in the air to get a better shot at someone and then your GM heads halfway across the map (and maybe kills a teammate) instead of at the target 2 inches in front of you.

Might I add that GM's may lock onto a player right next to you, but they will go right through tanks if they haven't been going for a reasonable amount of time.
