Every now and then you will feel the urge to break the law in Wartales. While stealing items can be fun, it will often get you to a wanted level if your thief doesn’t have enough experience. This is where the lock picking comes in. This skill helps you get more loot when visiting areas with locked crates. Here’s how to pick locks in Wartales.
Before you can pick locks, you need to get your hands on hooks. Hooks can sometimes be purchased in stores, but you will likely need to make them. Crafting hooks requires the workbench in your camp. Set up your camp and select the workbench. If you have a handyman, assign him the task or select someone to be your handyman. In the crafting menu, you will see that you can craft hooks immediately as long as you have iron. All you need is an iron to lockpick.
Now that you have some hooks, find a locked crate or barrel and inspect it. As long as you have hooks, a lock will appear. If you’ve played Fallout games before, lockpicking in Wartales is pretty similar. Move the hook around the lock to find the perfect spot. Press the left mouse button to force the lock to open. If you apply too much pressure in the wrong place, the opening pick will break. The closer you get to the perfect spot, the more the hook will fit into the lock and the holder will open.
