In Assassin’s Creed Mirage, pickpocketing is making a comeback. This game is all about being sneaky and stealthy, just like the older games in the series. You’ll be in ninth-century Baghdad, and there are many people with pockets you can steal from. If you’re careful and don’t get caught, you can earn a good amount of in-game money this way.
Here in this guide, we will discuss how to pickpocket in Assassin’s Creed Mirage, and some tips to avoid failing.
People to Steal from in Assassin’s Creed Mirage
In Assassin’s Creed Mirage, you can easily steal from people who have a coin purse hanging from their waist. These purses are easy to spot. Plus, you have a special ability called Eagle Vision that can help you find them more easily.
It’s easy to pickpocket regular people who aren’t paying attention. But it gets harder when you try to steal from people who are alert, like soldiers or guards.
When you steal, you can get money, tokens to unlock chests and bribe merchants, things you can use once like throwing knives and health potions, and even materials for crafting.
How To Easily Pickpocket in Assassin’s Creed Mirage?
Pickpocketing is something you learn early on, but it can become harder as you progress.
Here’s how it works: when you’re near the person you want to pickpocket, you’ll see a message on the screen (like “Press F” on the keyboard) to start the stealing attempt. Then, you have a brief moment to press the key again while a shrinking diamond is inside a blue area. This is how you successfully steal in the game.
When you pickpocket from people who are alert, like soldiers or guards, you’ll have less time and a smaller area to do it in, and the thing you’re trying to steal moves faster.
Failing to steal something without being seen and getting caught is not a good idea. Even if you manage to steal successfully, it’s important to leave the area quickly to avoid attracting attention and becoming known for your actions. It’s better to avoid looking suspicious from the beginning.
However, if you don’t want to deal with the time-stealing part, there is a way to make it easy. You can find a setting called “Guaranteed pickpocket” in the options menu, which will make every stealing attempt successful without timing. Just remember that this won’t prevent you from getting caught later, so you still need to be ready to run away after stealing something.
