How to Pick Locks in Thief Simulator 2
To pick locks in Thief Simulator 2, you will first have to unlock the Lockpicking Skill and acquire the Lockpicking Tool. Without the Lockpicking Skill and Lockpicking Tool, you cannot pick locks of any kind. You will be able to unlock the Lockpicking Skill (Level 1) at Level 3 for 1 Skill Point. Loot items from the houses to earn XP to level up and once you have reached Level 3, learn the Lockpicking Skill. After learning the skill, buy the Lockpicking Tool either from the computer or from your phone.
Buying the Lockpicking Tool 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 locks in Thief Simulator 2.
- Go near the locked door/safe/chest and press the E button to begin the lockpicking.
- Use the mouse/left stick to position the lockpicking tool and press the D button to see if the lock rotates.
- If the lockpicking tool is in the correct angle then the lock will rotate completely and the lock will open. If not then, reposition the lockpicking tool and press the D button to find the correct angle.
The lockpicking mechanic is very similar to Skyrim’s and if you have played Skyrim, then it will not be a problem for you.
