How to Pick Locks (Lock Pulling) – Mafia III
As in most open-world games, you’ll come across plenty of locked doors in Mafia III’s New Bordeaux. In order to get past these barriers, you’ll have to pull the lock, this game’s form of lock picking. It’s a lot more complicated than it looks, so let us break down the process for you.
There are two steps, exposing the lock and then pulling the lock. Once both are done you will have successfully gained access to a previously blocked off area. The first step will require rotating the left stick until you locate a green space on the lock. This will light up the Square/X prompt, exposing the lock and allowing you to actually break in.
Once exposed, a green area and a moving indicator will appear on screen. All you need to do is press Square/X once the needle indicator is withing the green space and you will successfully pull the lock, which essentially breaks it and opens whatever door is in front of you.
That’s how to pick locks Mafia III style. For more on the game, including, guides, tips, and tricks, be sure to check back here at Twinfinite.
