Lockpicking is a pretty common tool in certain games, and you’ll be doing this often in Dying Light 2. Whether you’re just trying to loot a chest, or you’re running through an enemy to open a door, you’re required to have trading tools. More importantly, you need to follow the right process. Otherwise, Aiden might waste those items or eventually die. This is ours Dying Light 2 Lockpicking guide to help you craft and upgrade lockpick.
Note: We will have a Dying Light 2 Tutorials and central features soon, so stay tuned.
Dying Light 2 key guide – How to create and upgrade your key
You’ll learn the lockpick blueprints pretty early in the campaign. You will be shown by Hakon how to do in a mission called Markers of Plague because you need to break into the hospital. For reference, 3x lockpicks requires 5x scraps (this is an easy material to find).
So how exactly does lockpicking work in Dying Light 2? Well, if you’ve played Skyrim or Fallout 4, then you are familiar with the concept. If not, here’s the gist:
- Chests and doorways have different levels of locking difficulty.
- Use YOUR MOUSE to move the selection to the side.
- Press and hold the “A” key to turn the lock. If it is near or in the “sweet spot”, it will rotate as well. If not, then you’ll need to move the selection around until you get it right. It’s basically just trial and error.
- If the selection is in the wrong place, then it will eventually break.
Note: When it’s dark or if you’re exploring the inner areas, Aiden’s immunity will drop. This feature still works even if you are in the middle of the minigame.
As soon as you have access to the Craftmaster NPCs, you can check out the lockpick upgrades in Dying Light 2. These will require different amounts of infected loot (i.e. uncommon, rare, and unique). At lower levels, the upgrades will simply increase the durability of the lockpick.
However, at higher levels you will be able to fully unlock the chest or the door by holding down the “R” key. This is entirely dependent on the difficulty of the key and the upgrades/tiers you have received so far. For example, once you can instantly open the easy or medium padlock, you can speed up while in the Metro Station/fast-moving area. Avoid enemies, go to the generator station door and hold the “R” key to open it.
