Artful Pocketer 5-10 Minutes
 
Make sure you got Lily from Jacobstown by doing the quest (Guess Who I saw Today)

Step 1: Get 2 stealthboys (I only used 1 but get 2 just in case) 2 locations of stealthboys below:
  • Victor's Shack inside ammunition box
  • Goodsprings Schoolhouse inside a safe (Lockpick - Easy)
Step 2: Get Lily as your companion her Stealth Girl perk is really useful for this method (she makes your stealth boy last twice as long)

Step 3: Go to Vault 21 Gifthouse located at the strip

Step 4: Make a new save if necessary

Step 5: Use stealthboy and pickpocket Sarah and take the "Bubblegum" it never disappears and still count as a pickpocket

Step 6: DON'T BE TOO GREEDY save every after 3-4 successful pickpocket

There you go achievement unlocked!

Sounds good, will try this when I get to the strip.

I never pickpocket people... getting 50 pickpockets is just ridiculous.

JohnRitchie 11-06-2010 07:44 PM

Great Method got it with one stealth boy.

xBiG ReDx 11-06-2010 08:14 PM

I agree thank god the game is glitchy and will let you pickpocket Sarah infinite times

iBeatStuffUp 11-06-2010 10:27 PM

EDIT: Nevermind... just take your time and don't spam the pickpocket, haha.

Works great, thank you OP! :)

Paka 11-06-2010 11:19 PM

Thanks! :) My character doesn't have very high sneak and my pickpocket attempts seem to never work-- I'll try this method!

zindar 11-06-2010 11:36 PM

One thing about this method always save every after 3-4 pickpockets cuz there is a chance you will get caught

Your Welcome!

gatorbait 11-07-2010 02:28 AM

Thank you so much! This method is incredibly easy and takes little to no time. Like the OP said, save every 5 or so pickpockets because she will randomly catch you.

GamingEconomist 11-07-2010 03:05 PM

Thanks will try this one out :-)

Stormcougar 11-07-2010 04:18 PM

Thank you so much for this find...it does work.

Just make sure after you steal Bubblegum to close window and restart from scratch.

qSasukep 11-07-2010 05:41 PM

when the guide is made, put this in it, works wonders, with only 1 stealthboy too, good job, good find.:drunk

Kramericus 11-07-2010 05:48 PM

Glad this little trick is here, pickpocketing even with 100 sneak has such a high fail rate that I usually dont bother with it.

gazmaster1 11-08-2010 12:07 AM

great method as i didnt fancy trying this with a sneak of only 19, on one stealthboy. i spent 30 mins trying to find, with lily

jung4ever 11-08-2010 01:32 AM

Awesome. Thanks for the tip. I dont pick pocket much, so this helped.

Is there anyother locations for Stealthboys? There doesn't seem to be as many in this game as there were in Fallout 3.

Try the REPCON test site some of the dead nightkins there has a stealthboy

I found 4 just in REPCON Test Site look around the whole place I found 2 stealthboys in one room

I'm sorry I can't exactly give you a specific location

Cyler12 11-08-2010 02:54 AM

Thulgrum 11-13-2010 03:08 PM

Very nice tip! Thank you very much!

Apple2Forever 11-14-2010 03:45 AM

Nice, will try this, not really a fan of pickpocketing so wouldn't have reached 50 in a normal playthrough.

venner 11-15-2010 07:19 PM

thanks will try this later

KuShNsTieN 11-15-2010 07:57 PM

ill be using this

friedmad 11-15-2010 08:10 PM

theres an easier way...get your stealth up to 100, then go into the Vault 21 casino. there's a group of 3 women standing and having a chat. crouch behind any of them and pick their can pork n beans. it must be glitched cuz the can never leaves their inventory, and they never get pissed if youre noticed picking them. just keep doing that over and over. if you get caught, move on to the next woman in the group.

ScottC1s 11-16-2010 08:00 PM

Works great! thanks took 10mins!

ChaddieB 11-16-2010 09:29 PM

Very helpful...one of the few achievements I have left. I'll have to try this tonight!
