Recipes - Lockpick skill book is a holotape in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Old World Blues.


This is one of the thirteen skill book recipes at Big MT. This one allows one to craft a Lockpick skill book at a workbench.


Found in one of the vents in X-13 research facility. Enter it and make your way to the X-13 stealth testing lab. Go across the bridge and there will be a sign that says "ADMIN OBSERVATION AREA (right) and OTHER OBSERVATION AREA (left). Take a left through the door and immediately on your left you will see a sign that reads "RECEPTION OBSERVATION AREA." Enter the door and go across the center bridge (the one with the toolbox and footlocker at the end). When you reach them look to the left and you will see a rectangular vent. You can jump off the metal bridge and it will give you the option to "Open Vent" as you pass. Or you can jump on the bridge rail, walk into the wall, and slide left. There is an invisible ledge that you may land on. The recipe is inside along with some random loot.
