||For a cross-game overview of this perk, see Pickpocket.
Pickpocket is a perk in Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics.
You are much more adept at stealing than the normal crook. You can Steal with the best of them, because with this perk, you ignore size and facing modifiers, when stealing from a person.
Fallout actually requires 80% Sneak, not Steal. This may be a bug, or the manual is incorrect.
