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.
GIO42I'm playing on master difficulty, tried on different locks and they stay the same. Are you moving the analog away thinking it's not going to be in the same spot, I can see people messing up there thinking they aren't going fast enough.

JungleWookieeIs using focus going to help for that ?

GIO42In all honesty I can imagine the focus where you slow time down can help, but seeing as how I am also going for the achievement where you can't activate focus before the last level I am not quite sure

BigBoomKCGIO42, removed my previous comment and up voted. It was my ineptitude causing the problem, not your solution. This solution works 100%.

Thanks!

Marine1TenThis method works but wait a few seconds to see if the achievement unlocks. Did this in Area 8, Blackfurrow, just under lady Marigold's apt. (section 9), in the city. Just north of the Watch Council office. Playing on Thief level and did not use focus. The wooden doorway is down a flight of stone steps & no guards there. Simple three circle lock.

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.
