NotesEdit

  • When out of bobby pins, the game will tell notify the player that they are "all out of lockpicks" instead of bobby pins. This is because bobby pins are only used for lock picking.
  • To avoid losing a bobby pin that is about to break, a player may exit the lock pick attempt, and then go back into it. The bobby pin will be as good as new, but the lock will also be reset, meaning the same solution likely won't work.
  • In Fallout: New Vegas, bobby pins are harder to snap. This is because extra bobby pin HP is added to the base health of the pin based on the player's Lockpick skill.
