Your nimble fingers allow you to pick advanced locks.

Locksmith is a perk in Fallout 4.


Rank Requirements Description Base ID
1 PER 4 Your nimble fingers allow you to pick advanced locks. 000523ff
2 PER 4, LVL 7 You can pick Expert locks. 00052400
3 PER 4, LVL 18 You can pick Master locks. 00052401
4 PER 4, LVL 41 Your bobby pins never break during lockpicking. 001d246a


  • While the first 3 ranks are required to access the different levels of lock, level 4 has a significantly higher level requirement (over twice the level of rank 3) and instead makes your bobby pins unbreakable. The usefulness of this rank is questionable, as by the time the player reaches level 41 there is a good chance they will have several hundred bobby pins.
  • However, a useful side effect of the bobby pins not breaking is that the player's pick rotation will not be reset after it breaks. This makes it easier for the player to pick harder locks, as they no longer have the issue of losing their place when a pick breaks while just off the sweet spot.
  • Cait can be one of your companions; she has the locksmith perk and a small chance of unlocking Master locks, but she requires at least one bobby pin in her inventory to do so. See her page for more information.
