How to Make and Use Lockpicking Tool in Palworld

In Short
  • If you are struggling to find keys to unlock treasure chests in Palworld, craft the lockpicking tool instead.
  • There are three tiers of lockpicking tools (v1, v2, v3) available at different Ancient Civilization Point levels.
  • Once you have a lockpicking tool, use the "lockpick" option on the chest and clear the minigame to open it.

Finding treasures around the map in Palworld feels amazing until you realize that they are locked. While rare keys such as copper keys, silver keys, and gold keys solve that problem, finding them is another hassle. However, with the Sakurajima update (review), Palworld adds a “lockpicking tool” that you can use to unlock the rarest of treasures. So, if you are wondering how to make and use a lockpicking tool in Palworld, follow this guide.

All Lockpicking Tool Recipes and How to Unlock

Before you go and make yourself a couple of lockpicks, keep in mind that there are three levels to this tool. Each level grants the power to unlock rarer chests. You will need to unlock the lockpicking tool at different levels from the “Technology” tab using Ancient Civilization Points.
