In Abermore, you’ll spend almost all of your time sneaking around in places you definitely shouldn’t be trying to steal things that don’t belong to you. Therefore, you need an arsenal of gear tailored to make your job as easy as possible. Lockpicks are at the top of that list, of course, but the game doesn’t tell you exactly how to craft them. This guide explains how to make lock picks so you’re never missing anything in an emergency.
What does it take to craft lock picks?
You will craft a lockpick in the game’s tutorial, but the materials you use there are two pieces of junk. This creates the false impression that you always need scrap to craft lock picks. However, the truth is that you need two pieces of hard material resembling scrap metal to craft them. This means you can keep an eye out for hard materials while working and stealing from the residents of Abermore, so you can craft lockpicks later if you need them.
What counts as hard material only becomes clear after playing the game for a few hours. However, scrap is a good place to start. You can also buy lockpicks on the black market before a mission, but if you’re trying to save your money this could dip into the funds you want to keep. It’s much easier to find hard materials along the way and craft lockpicks if needed.
