How to Do the Lock Picking Minigame in Hogwarts Legacy

Are you ready to put your lock-picking skills to the test?

In Hogwarts Legacy, players have the opportunity to take on the challenge of unlocking doors and chests by picking locks.

Here’s how to do it:

First, find a locked door or chest that needs to be opened. You can use your wand to detect which lock type is in place – there are several different types, including round locks, square locks, and padlocks. Once you know what type of lock you’re dealing with, you can start picking it.

There are a few basic techniques to keep in mind when lock-picking: first, use your sense of touch to feel for any loose parts or mechanisms inside the lock. You may also want to try jiggling or wiggling the lock to loosen it up. Once you’ve found a potential weakness, insert your wand and apply pressure gently while turning it slowly in the direction of the lock’s mechanism.

It takes practice to become proficient at lock-picking, but with time and patience, you’ll be able to unlock any door or chest that stands in your way. Plus, mastering this skill will make you feel like a true Hogwarts student!
