Thief Simulator 2 offers various ways to rob neighborhoods to get valuable items and money. Not only you will get to rob several houses in the neighborhood but you can choose to rob the people walking in the streets. However, robbing people can only be done by pickpocketing as your character doesn’t do an act of violence. Pickpocketing can net you various valuable items and here is how you can pickpocket the people in Thief Simulator 2.
How to Pickpocket in Thief Simulator 2
Pickpocket is one of the skills in Thief Simulator 2 and your character cannot perform pickpocketing if the skill is not learned. You can find the Pickpocket skill in the Skills Tab in the menu and it requires Level 4 and 1 Skill Point to learn. Make sure to level up your character to level 4 to learn the Pickpocket skill.
Once the Pickpocket skill has been learned, you will be able to pickpocket the people walking in the streets and houses. However, you will have to be careful as you can raise a detection if you get caught by the person you are pickpocketing or if anyone else sees you pickpocketing. Pickpocketing has its mini-game that you will have to complete to successfully pickpocket the person.
To start pickpocketing, go to any person and press the E Button to initiate the pickpocketing mini-game. There are three bars in total that you will see in the mini-game, the first one is a moving green bar, the second one is a bar of progression with a Wallet symbol, and the last bar is the detection/time bar which keeps filling up. You need to Hold the LMB to control the hand over the moving green bar and stay on it until the progression bar is filled up. Filling up the progression bar before the detection/time bar fills up will successfully pickpocket the individual without raising any suspicion. However, if the detection/time bar fills up first before the progression bar, it will raise detection and the police will be called.
If another individual or a car driving by sees you pickpocketing an individual, it will raise detection as well so, you need to be extra careful while pickpocketing.
