Hi guys! Listen, can anyone tell me what happens with the skill in this game plz?? need to pick some locks here

It will make you able to lockpick on the level your lickpicking is. Any level lower will become easier. So if you are level 3 then all level 1 is a piece of cake. :)

@iteague: I'm not sure what you mean? Assuming that you're talking about Unity, if you've got at least basic lockpicking, you can try any lock. That said, the locks that match or are below your lockpicking skill level should be fairly easy to pick, while those above it are near-impossible (but not completely impossible). You need to reach certain sequences in the game before you can improve your lockpicking and you need to have enough sync points to unlock the skills, the same as with any other skill in ACU.

Go to the main menu, open character custom... and then skills. I forgot under wish one it was at skills.

Follow this.... and notice you have to get to certain points (sequences) in the game to unlock the skills...I think with skill points that you get from the missions and heists

This may be the reason then. I go to all the shops and can only buy Health and Bombs. I have looked for outfit shops until I am dizzy! Same with weapon shops! I am only a small per cent into game yet and not deep into anything. I am going around looting chests mainly.

So how far into the game before get to be able to do what you's guys do?????

I did the same thing.... I found some coats or belts gave me 27 lockpicks and with timing I could open even the hardest chests, it sometimes took 16 to 18 picks... but when I did the missions and heists for skill points and played the main game to upgrade my lock picking...it slowed the chest picking down so much I was missing ;)

Wow! I don't know how you get that thing into those tiny spots so quickly when your skill level isn't high enough. I was way off, inches away, every time and I don't have any input lag! I stopped trying.

I found the secret was to try to stop it either just before it reached an end or when it just left one end and started back up or down... like I was hitting the spacebar 1.5 cm from the safe zone and it would be close ... I'd get it within 5 or 6 but you need 20 lockpicks to be safe on a level 3 lock.

trying to actually stop it in the zone was always to hard.

I have found out that you really need to complete the 'Saint-Chappelle' quest before the game starts to open up. I have completed this now and I have access to my customisation files.

Let me thank you on and all for your assistance here.
