Starfield Digipick Guide: Where to Find & How to Use Digipicks

Looking to find more Digipicks in Starfield? Lockpicking has been a prevalent feature in most Bethesda games even before the days of games such as Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. Since there are a multitude of different lockpicking styles in games, many were curious to see if Starfield would include a minigame of sorts.

Fans can rejoice, as Starfield does indeed have a lockpicking mini-game (and a really good one at that). However, unlike the days of Elder Scrolls and Fallout, this system works a bit differently, albeit with the same structure. Meaning, while the act of lockpicking is different, you still need a device of some sort to break into things with. And for this game, we’re going to enter the universe and figure out how to use Digipicks in Starfield.

But assuming you are able to pick a lock, press the interact button and a new screen will pop-up. Giving us the perfect opportunity to find out how to use Digipicks in Starfield.

You’ll see a bunch of circles layered inside each other in the middle of the screen with sections of those circles missing, along with the difficulty of the lock in the top right. And towards the middle right side of the screen, there are some dashes intersecting with smaller circles. These are the individual digits, and you’ll need to figure out which ones slot into the lock efficiently. When you successfully cover all the openings in one circle it will disappear revealing the next layer, and by completing each layer you will have successfully picked the lock.

How to Get Digipicks in Starfield

Digipicks are the items that you’ll be using during your time exploring the stars. When you first get a glimpse of the item in game, you’ll think that you stumbled across one of those tiny flashlights you’d attach to your backpack. Furthermore, a Digipick doesn’t take up any inventory space and can be bought and sold from many vendors across star systems.

There are some Digipicks you come across by just playing the game and looting, but if you need a few quickly, head on over to Jemison who’s located next to the fountain square in New Atlantis. Figuring out how to use Digipicks in Starfield on the other hand, can take a bit of practice. And since there aren’t any Tears of the Kingdom duplication glitches in Starfield, you’ll want to take advantage of every lockpick you have.
