    To make this easier do this after the prologue (because it wont let you save in game), save infront of a door/lock that needs to be picked. Now go ahead and pick the lock, but memorize the analog locations in which you need to set the pin. Once memorized just reload the save and pick the lock with speed now knowing where to place the pin with left analog stick.

    SENTINAL 107Nice solution got mine in chapter 5, I had a desk and a cabinet to work on in the same room both had 3 pins.
    I could not get it to pop on the desk facepalm pins where set to 12 o'clock 3 and 9.
    Got it to pop on the cabinet clap they where set to 9 o'clock 11 and 7 way easier pins all on one side didn't have to throw the stick all over the place like on the desk.

    KingJamerscoreSo, I've done this several times now with speed. I save right before, find the right combo to unlock, reload the save and do it again quick, but the achievement is not unlocking. All I'm doing is pushing the cn_LS in the correct direction and hitting the cn_RT, but it's not working. Does anyone have any tips that could possibly help me?

    ThaDevilzHandI want to add that I think if you mess with the lock to learn where the spots are, and then cancel the lockpicking to save I think that will make it so the achievement won't unlock. I was picking the first locked gate in Chapter 1 over and over after I did that, but as soon as I got to the second locked thing and made a save before I messed with it I got it first try.

    Ok for this achievement I read the other guide and unsure how to speed pick, this may of been my mistake during the prologue of not listening but I’m sure it didn’t state this!

    Ok just so aware if on the first 2 level difficulties, you can make a save during your play through!


    Go upto a door which needs lock picking as seen below:
    External image
    and press cn_X to check if a 3 lock pick, now press cn_back then save here.

    Now go into the lock picking by pressing cn_X now with your left analogue stick direct it at either 12 o’clock, 3 o’clock, 6 o’clock and 9 o’clock this will show you speed pick indicator.

    Which are visible in a blue circle as follows:
    Pale blue:
    Mid blue:
    Full blue this is your speed pick location

    Now once you know your first press cn_RT to select and then find the next 2 full blue filters. Once you know your 3 speed lock picks eg Left, Down then Up!

    Press the cn_back load up your save, now go in and select each pick with cn_X then cn_RT as fast as you can if done correctly Pop achievement unlocked this has a small delay so be patient.

    If you don’t manage to do on your first attempt just reload your save, then just practice your specific lock pick sequence until it Pops.

    Here below is a clip I’ve made checking a 3 lock pick saving and checking speed locations:
