I would just like to elaborate a little bit on this achievement. Here is a few things you should know about progress towards the 100 pick pockets.

You can check your total pockets picked at any given time by hitting the BACK button- PLAYER PROGRESSION - STATISTICS - Lb/Rb to OVERALL

1. Looting a corpse does NOT count
- this is for either KO or killed persons. Even if you knockout and hold the body without dropping it (this will loot the person also), won't count as a pick pocket.

2. Each bag on a person to pick counts individually
- If the person has 3 bags to take, you can get 3 added to your pick pocket counter as long a you "pick pocket" them and not "loot" a body.

3. You DO NOT need to be in stealth to get a pick pocket.
-Civilians can literally be running away from you and you can still get a pick pocket from them as you chase them.
-Guards can be attacking you and you can still get a pick pocket. The best way to do that is to whack them a few times with the blackjack or shoot them with arrows until they drop to their knees (allowing for a combat takedown), then run behind them and pick pocket them before they stand back up.

4. Load Last: Save, Checkpoint, Manual Save File, or Load Chapter Start will cause you to lose all accumulated progress you earned from the point you are at to the point loaded. (Return to City will lose all progress earned during the level currently played)
-So if you are half way through a level and have received credit for 2 pick pockets and decide to restart the level or return to the city, you will lose the credit for those 2 in your statistics tracker.
-Even if you make a Manual Save then restart the level you will lose anything you have accumulated.

5. Replaying Chapters will not delete your previous pick pocket stats, as long as you have completed it and continued before returning to the mission start location in the city to replay.
- Say you played Chapter 3 and only got 2 pockets picked, after beating the level and returning to the city you decide to go back and replay Ch 3. The 2 picks you got previously are still counted and anymore you get during the replay with count as well as long as you finish the level and continue.
- However, if you decide at the end of the level to replay, by using the replay option it gives you, this will cause you to lose all progress you have acquired during that run through
