Thanks friedmad.
This worked like a charm.
if you do get caught you won't be able to pickpocket from them.
And if you are caught 3 or more times, then you get chased by a whole bunch of angry customers with pool cues.

Just rotate between groups and save every 5-10 successful pickpockets.
This was very fast, as there are usually 3 groups of 3 in that main room.

You don't even need a stealth boy.
Just had 100 stealth skill with a skill magazine ( 80 + skill magazine), and just pickpocketed one group 2 full rounds, save, and repeat the process with another group.

Removed patch. Worked perfect. Popped achievement within 5 minutes, saving every 5 pick pockets.

Thanks for the trick.

Thanks for this. Very helpful, and still works post-patch (the bubblegum in the gift shop chick's pocket).

Same as you, I was able to do this with 1 stealth boy. Should be easy enough for anyone to do it that way so long as they don't dick around and just take the bubblegum, back out and immediately go back in. I saved after every 3 attempts, any more seemed like I was pushing my luck, but I only had a 21 in Sneak.

I went to level 30 messiah. I never stole unless it was a keycard or some awesome weapon. Last few levels I got up to sneak skill 90 read the sneak magazine and changed into business wear that gave me +1 agility (light armor). All this matched up with stealth boy made this achievement really easy stealing the gum.

Personally i did this by going to powder gangers prison on a new save after raising nothing but sneak....and pick items 1 by 1 from their pocket as each 1 item taken that weighs at least 1 will give a count for it :> save after each one and keep going...took me about 20 min

Got it in about 10 mins in the gift shop with Lily and a single stealth boy. Just made sure to save after every 2-3 successful pockets and had 2 alternating saves in case I messed up and saved too quickly!

Nice and easy, thanks. Absolutely hated this achievement as I never use pickpocketing in Fallout.

  • 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!

I did this. I did not bother getting a stealth boy. I also didn't bother saving every 4 goes. If she caught me I left the building, waited, then went back and did it again. I don't understand what negative effects being caught has.. it's not as if popularity on The Strip means anything.

Thank you. I will try this. That achivement is BS man. Even at near max out stealth pickpocketing is a pain and doing 50 succesful ones ugggh.

I will try this when I get to Vault 21. Havent even went inside The Strip yet on my 360 playthrough I'm tackling every other side quest outside of the Strip to get some side quest achivements (Like Volaire,Legend of the Star Bottle Caps,and Return to sender,are the only ones left for side quest achivements),gonna recruit Vannessa the last of the followers,and working my way up to level 30,at level 23 now. I wanna do all this before I confront Benny.

If this works still then finally a glitch that is good for once,lol.

I can confirm this STILL works,post patch. I didn't have to delete anything either.

Also not only is the Bubble Gum glitched,but also the Barrel Cactus in her pocket is glitched to. My advice safe after every 2-4 pickpockets. But note I was like at 20 skill on stealth cause I was on my good playthrough.

To save you from doing another playthrough have a stealth Boy on hand,make a new save file if you are playing as a good person then pickppocket her 50 times. When Achivement pops delete that save file. Thats what I did,saved me time and Skill points
