While the Lock On Pistol in Fortnite does track your bullets to an enemy player, you will need to wait for your crosshair lines to turn pink before you can start firing the weapon.

If you fire the gun before it reaches the lock on point, your shots will act like they came from a normal gun and will likely stray off target. Just make sure that you're aiming within the vicinity of your chosen enemy until the lock-on activates and you should be fine.
