How to Pick Level 2 Locks in Thief Simulator 2
To pick level 2 locks in Thief Simulator 2, you will first have to unlock the Lockpicking Skill (Level 2) and acquire the Lockpicking Tool with a number of Lockpicks. Without the Lockpicking Skill, Lockpicking Tool, and Lockpicks, you cannot pick locks of any kind. You will be able to unlock the Lockpicking Skill (Level 2) at Level 5 for 1 Skill Point. Loot items from the houses to earn XP to level up and once you have reached Level 5, learn the Lockpicking Skill. After learning the skill, buy the Lockpicking Tool either from the computer or from your phone.
Buying the Lockpicking Tool and Lockpicks from the computer will cost you less than buying it from the phone. If you are away from your hideout and you instantly want the lockpicking tool then you can use the phone. Press the Up arrows key to equip the phone and then select the Quick Buy app to purchase the Lockpicking Tool. Once you have all the required necessities for picking locks, follow the following steps to pick level 2 locks in Thief Simulator 2.
- Go near the locked door/safe/chest and press the E button to begin the lockpicking.
