Just a word of warning, you need only steal 1 pack of bubblegum per pickpocket time, then press b to exit pickpocketing, then steal it again, repeat this, stealing 3 or 4 packs in one will only count as 1 pickpocketed item in the stats.

thank you so much, i hate the pick pocketing feature in this game. it's a total and complete failure of a game mechanic that could be great if tweaked a little bit.

Would prefer some sort of skill based minigame like lockpicking/hacking

Nice find! I'm doing this right now (without a stealth boy) and it's working like a charm. Also, you can steal the beer from her an infinite amount of times as well and it's a tad bit easier as it is the top item in her inventory. Thanks again for sharing the find.

You can also pick pocket Manny Vargas at the top of the T-Rex in Novac. If you turn Hardcore mode ON then you can steal his ammunition 1 at a time. Every three or four just go in the door and back out so it autosaves!
I did this with just one stealth boy too. If he catches you, just reload! Simple.

I did this achievement in vault 3 stealing 1 ammo over and over again from various fiends. There is no -karma and you dont get attacked or anything if you fail.



Reverse pick pocketing then restealing doesnt work though.

This worked great! Thanks you!!!! I can't emphasize enough how much you saved me. I hate pickpocketing and avoid it all costs. But this just made the Achievement a cake walk. Mad props for finding this little tip.

This isn't working for me, the first pickpocket works fine but she ALWAYS catches me on my second attempt, anyone know why? I have a very low sneak skill btw.

That might be why. I didn't have a high sneak skill at all and it worked for me. It could be some other issue that you aren't noticing. Maybe your armor effecting the sneak succession or maybe it could a weapon in your hand.

Just for reference, I only had a 18 sneak skill and it worked for me quite perfectly (with liberal use of saves of course).

I wear the Naughty Nightwear, and tried again with 100 Sneak skill and she would still discover me every single time on the second attempt, I did always have a laser pistol in my hand though.

I had the same problem at my first few tries, then I told Lily to wait in the room next door (not sure if that helped) and I moved my character a tiny bit and waited for like 1-2 seconds every time a pick-pocketed the bubblegum from her. Still got caught some times, but thats OK if you just save every 3-4th time and reload if necessary. Hope that helps!

Can this be done without Lily? I understand the perk, but what if I just use the stealth boy and steal from her.

I'm doing it right now without Lily and for me it works even without using a stealth boy.
Works great, thanks!

You can also pickpocket the guests in Vault 21. They all have indefinit amounts of booze in their inventories (those lucky bastards).
When one caught me (after about 10 succesfull pickpockets) I just proceeded to the next one and so on. This is where I got it.

Thanks for sharing this, it worked like a charm !

I was just going to pick pocket people as I went through the game, but I totally forgot about it until now.

Thanks for the method! saved a lot of aggro as the sneak skill seems to do nothing at all to aid pick pocketing!
