I’m on xbox and I know it can be frustrating to lockpick. I came to the forums and looked at topics after a particularly infuriating lockpick training. (I actually swore off lockpicking at one point lol)
When I read those topics I thought, yea right, I’ll never make it to level 3 lockpicking.(the height of my frustration)
But it is true what they say, the lockpicking does get easier when you hit level 3 in lockpicking.
I spent the better part of 3-4 hours doing the following:
First,I got money by doing bandit missions for Bernard, getting the reward money and selling all the bandits stuff.
Then I spent an obscene amount of time running around the entire map looking for lockpicking trainers, books and lock picks.
Then I went to the mill and picked Pesheks training chest till I couldn’t anymore, then set off to far flung areas where I knew there were easy or very easy locks and picked away.
Right now my lockpicking is still low, but easy locks no longer give me trouble, I can open most of them in one shot.
My suggestion is to get some money if you haven’t already, get every resource you can that pertains to lockpicking and go for it. The millers usually have lockpicks, and I’m sorry I don’t remember who else besides Peshek that trains lockpicking.
Best of luck, I know you can do it
