I assume you put the lock picks in 1-4 slots to use them but I cant. I have the skill unlocked but it wont let me put them there. HELP
You need to unlock the skill in the far right skill tree, then interact with a locked door to use them.
the skill is unlocked. but I still cant do it when I try to put lock pick in 1-4 slots it wont let me.
You don’t need them in your utility slot. You just need to have picks in your inventory. Walk up to a locked door and pick it by just opening it. There’s nothing for you to do. It’s like opening a door the way you normally would.
Now note that there are some locks in the game you can’t pick. Typically those are involved in a mission and you need to find a key to unlock it. If you’ve come up to a locked door you can’ t open, either it can’t be open or it’s part of a mission. You’ve likely been picking locked doors while playing you didn’t even realize were locked.
You don’t need to put them in a quick slot. When you walk up to a door that you can pick the lock of, ‘Pick Lock’ will come up. For more detailed information, see the FAQ; and welcome to the forum, @burningman.
Thank you for the answers! Big help!!
and thank you for the greeting good to be here.
I don’t have the lock pick skill unlocked yet, but was wounding… once you do pick a lock will that use up one lock pick? I have 4 in my current inventory and was wounding if I should keep building up that number for when I do start to use them… or do you only need to carry one to pick all locks?
@TheMark38 Yes picking a lock consumes 1 lockpick so its good to keep a stack of them in your inventory and refilling that stack as you go. they are easy to find so one stack is more than enough
Cool Beans, thanks Hagelbocken
Collect them until you have a full stack of 20. Replenish them as required when you find them. Even 20 is Overkill, but you might as well have a complete stack just in case. I’ve found them to be more rare than they were before the latest patch.
