How to Pickpocket in Assassin’s Creed Mirage
Pickpocket is one of the earliest abilities of Basim that you will get to learn in the opening mission of the game and there are a few things that you must keep in mind to successfully pickpocket your target without getting caught. To start pickpocketing, first, you need to find the citizens, traders, or enemies with a pouch on their belt by using the Eagle Vision. Press the Left button on the D-Pad to use the Eagle Vision and it will show the lootable items in your surrounding area. Lootable items/pouches will be highlighted in orange.
The next step is to go behind your target whom you want to pickpocket and press the Triangle/Y Button on the controller to initiate the pickpocket, press the Triangle/Y Button again when the white outline reaches within the blue area of the diamond shape to successfully pickpocket your target. If you press the respective button to quickly or late, you will get caught. So, try avoid getting caught while pickpocketing especially, against the enemies because it will raise an alarm if you get caught by the enemies.
Pickpocketing can net you some great things which can be of help in upgrading your weapons and outfits as well as getting inside the restricted sections using the Favor Tokens.
