Pickpocket is a perk in Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout Tactics, and Fallout 4.

Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics[edit | edit source]

With this perk, size and directional modifiers do not factor into the success of a pickpocket attempt. Functionally useless, as failing in a steal attempt turns the target and allies permanently hostile, necessitating a reload short of wholesale slaughter.

Fallout 4[edit | edit source]

With the Pickpocket perk, picking pockets is easier, but you may even be able to place live explosives in a person's inventory (killing them instantly), or steal their weapons and equipped items.
