How to Get Lockpicking Tool in Palworld

Be a master thief.

The Sakurajima update for Palworld has not only added new items for players in the late game, but more tools like the Lockpicking tool for players to use instead of finding keys. Here is how to get the Lockpicking Tool in Palworld.

How to Unlock Lockpicking Tool in Palworld

Palworld players can unlock the Lockpicking Tool by spending one Ancient Technology Point at level 16 from the Technology menu. This is the first version of the item and the earliest players can get it.

The level two version can be unlocked at level 28 for two Ancient Technology Points and the final version at level 51 for three Ancient Technology Points. The Sakurajima update had added an extra five levels to the game, so players can now max out at level 55.

The Lockpicking Tool allows players to open any chest without needing a consumable key, usually found while exploring the world. The tool does have a chance to fail, but upgrading it to later versions gives it a higher chance of success.

All versions of the Lockpicking Tool can be crafted at the Production Assembly Line II machine, unlocked at level 42. Here are all of the requirements to craft each Lockpicking Tool:

  • Lockpicking Tool v1
    • 10 Ingot
    • 10 Paldium Fragment
    • Five Nail
  • Lockpicking Tool v2
    • 20 Ingot
    • 20 Paldium Fragment
    • 10 Nail
  • Lockpicking Tool v3
    • 30 Pal Metal Ingot
    • 30 Paldium Fragment
    • 20 Nail

The tool is located in the Key Item, which means it does not get consumed at use and players do not have to continue making more of them when needed. While players will collect keys on their own in their adventures without much effort, it is always better to have the Locking Tool on you for when you want to save some space in your inventory.
