If you are anything like me, you wanted to throw your controller against your screen the first time you tried to pick a lock. It is a very different mechanic than I am used to. It's required to understand within the first hour or so of game play which is only the introduction.

Long before you free roam and enjoy the open sandbox world that is offered in KCD (yes, I'm calling it KCD, you should too) you need to pick a lock to get an outfit blah blah blah, you already know that part or else you wouldn't be here.

This takes finess and total control of both the right and left anolog stick. Pretty tricky at first but in the video I show you a few tricks that will help you master lock picking and you are free to unlock all the chests you want. If you are struggling with this game, just know that you are not alone.

I'll share as much knowledge as I can regarding KCD. I'm still getting my feet wet but after a few days it's starting to get easier. I promise, there will be light at the end of this tunnel.
