The official Rockman X Dive Facebook Page uploaded a short clip to demonstrate the "Auto Lock System". In the clip we can see Zero at the top of a truck in the Central Highway Stage with the Auto Lock System activated.
Later on in the video, during the Energy Mine Ruins Stage segment, Zero is shown fighting with the Auto Lock deactivated against numerous enemies like the Ball De Voux Shot Type from Mega Man X7 and other classic enemies like the Spiky and Batton Bone. In other words, the Auto Lock System is entirely optional.
