How to turn on Hero Lock Mode in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang

In the exhilarating world of Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, players can enjoy various features that add depth and strategy to their gameplay experience. One such feature is Hero Lock Mode, which ensures that you always have your preferred hero under your control. In this guide, we will walk you through the simple steps on how to enable Hero Lock Mode in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang.

What Is Hero Lock Mode?

Hero Lock Mode, also known as Champion Select or First Pick, is a function that allows players to reserve a particular hero for themselves before the match begins. This feature is particularly useful when you want to play your preferred hero or if there’s a specific hero that counters the enemy team composition.

Steps To Turn On Hero Lock Mode

  1. Enter the Hero Selection Screen: Once you have joined a game, navigate to the Hero Selection screen. This is where players choose their heroes before the match begins.

  2. Find Your Hero: Use the left and right arrow keys on your keyboard or swipe left/right on your screen to browse through the available heroes. Select the hero that you wish to lock in.

  3. Locking In Your Hero: Once you have selected your preferred hero, there are a few ways to lock them in:

    • On PC: Press the ‘L’ key to lock in the hero or right-click on the hero portrait and select "Lock."
    • On Mobile: Tap and hold the hero portrait until it is highlighted. Release your finger to confirm.
  4. Confirm Your Hero Selection: Once you have locked in a hero, the icon will turn gold, signifying that it’s been locked in for you. If you wish to change your selection, simply unlock the hero (PC: press ‘L’ again or left-click; Mobile: tap and hold then release) and select another hero.

  5. Locking In More Heroes: You can also lock in additional heroes by following the same process as described above. However, keep in mind that you will be randomly assigned a hero for your last pick if you don’t manually pick one yourself.

By following these simple steps, you’ll ensure that your preferred heroes are always under your control when entering the battleground in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang.
