'Use' Lockpicks?

Post by Airk » Sat Jul 05, 2014 9:13 pm

You can right click->Use lockpicks, but all it seems to do is waste a usage. Why is this there?

Why is it like that? Because the Pit hates you, and wants you to fail. It is part of a fiendish plan, you see. :lol:

In seriousness, this was reported earlier and may simply be too time consuming to fix. Just to confirm, there is no benefit to using them in that fashion.
Feel free to call me App- it's shorter.

I've seen other items, such as the Electronic Tool Kit have this option in the inventory. I'll test tonight whether I can waste a usage in a similar fashion, and make a note what items have this wasteful functionality.

Thanks! Though I went through the other items (essentially any of the tools that help you with tasks) and fixed those up as well.

I can confirm that at minimum the Electronic Tool Kit and the Nano Control Module have a use option in the inventory that eats a usage for nothing. Let me know if you need me to keep checking other items.

It seems any item with a "use" ability that doesn't have a charge associated with it, in such as lock picks, electronic tool kits, etc can be activated using the "use" ability to waste a usage. I am playing on the latest version of the game, all DLC included.
