While playing DOTA 2, there could be instances that the player’s view in the game would move unexpectedly. This could be because of their mouse movement even if they did not mean to move it. This mostly happens when players’ mouse sensitivity is a bit too high.
Fortunately, players may be able to lock the camera in order to follow their hero almost all the time during the game. Of course, above all things, their hero should always be their priority in DOTA 2. In this article, we will tell you how to lock the camera in DOTA 2.
Players will have to first set a hotkey to lock their camera in DOTA 2. They should head to the hotkey options and choose the Select hero key. Now, they need to set a key that would serve as the lock camera option. If players hit it twice during games, the camera view will then lock on their hero.
If players wish to fully lock their camera, they should go to the Camera options. Look for the Edge pan option and disable it. Players can also do this by binding the Toggle Offset Camera option represented by the V key. But players will also be required to hit their hotkey twice in order to activate it.
Players can lock the camera whenever they want during games in DOTA 2. However, most players do not advise others to lock the camera. This is because of the potential lack of information players might gather around the map, and their opponents might also take advantage of the limited view.
That said, it still depends on the player’s preference. Find out which works best for them while playing DOTA 2.
