View Full Version : Big Pickpocket Problems

OK how to pickpocket... In AC unity.
Lock on target using <F-key>. Get close to target. push and <hold left shift>.
That's what all the other forums say (more or less). This, however, for me, doesn't work at all...!!!

First, to lock on target with the F-Key? My F-key makes me throw bombs and stuff. It's the "use tool" key.
To target, I need to hold the <right mouse> and <space> keys. A yellow line appears around the target but as soon as I let go either button they're no longer targeted.
The left Shift just makes me run and push people out of the way. Besides, holding all those buttons and walking after my target, I'd need a couple of extra fingers...

So... How is it done???

I don't know that you can use lock for pickpocketing. It is a matter of staying close to the target (hard when they are moving) while holding the off-hand key. You will see a circle appear over the target's head. when it fills you have successfully picked their pocket. Most times it's easier just to kill them and loot the body.
