"Theater Pickpocketing" was a job for Sly Cooper in The Black Chateau of Sly 2: Band of Thieves. Pickpocketing is
first introduced in this mission.  



Pickpocket six keys from patrolling guards to shut off the fans.


  • Pickpocket all the guards
  • Use keys to shut down fans
  • Climb fans and insert the splice chip into the spotlight guns.

How to CompleteEdit

Once you reach the mission marker, Sly will open a door and go inside. Upon getting inside, take one step forward. Bentley will give you a brief tutorial on how to pickpocket. Any guard with a key has a blue glow around their pockets, so use this to remember which guards still have keys. If you take out a guard while he has a key still in his pocket, you will fail the mission. After you pickpocket the nearby guard once, Bentley will tell you to keep pickpocketing the guard's pockets until you get the key as sometimes you have to dig a little bit more. After you get the key from the guard, you can take him out if you wish to. Go around the area and take the other keys from the other guards. Once you have the six keys, Bentley will congratulate you and tell you to head to the control panel for the control panel and turn off the fans.

Once you get to the control panel, press  to use the keys to unlock the locks. This will turn off the fans and allow you to get on top of the chandelier.

Use the fans as platforms, so you can easily get up there. Once you are on top of the chandelier, place the splice clip onto the controls. Once you do so, Bentley will tell you that he is overriding the spotlight security guns. He will then use the guns to destroy the power boxes. Once the cutscene is over, the job is complete.
