    What I do is I spin the analog stick slowly. When I feel it "click", I slightly wiggle the stick back and forth in that same position. Works like a charm all the time for me.

    I second what Chris said. The same thing works for me. I think it's great use of force feedback, by the way. [​IMG]

    It's the left analog stick BTW...

    I find that if you have a disposable lock, feel free to use it. I don't think there is one place in the game where you HAVE to use it. I think the only time I used it was once I entered the CIA headquarters in the beginning of the mission, I used it on the door on the right side of the hallway. But I have also picked the lock so it wasn't entirely necessary.

    Just in case Jose was referring to the disposable pick & not the regular lock pic, you just equip it & then hit the right trigger to use it. Otherwise...what they said.

    Since we're talking about the game...I just realized last night that you can shoot down a sticky camera if it's too high to reach. [​IMG]

    You don't have to continuously wiggle the analog stick for the lock pick to work. Once you've found the 'sweet spot' just hold that direction till it moves to the next one.

    Re: Sticky Cameras
    My friend found out you can use them on an enemy's head to knock them out and then just pick the camera back up. Infinite non-lethal ammo [​IMG]

    I hit a guy on the head with a grenade and knocked him out cold yesterday. It was pretty funny. Too bad you can't stop a grenade from going off. [​IMG]

    The picks take a little getting used to but once you do it a few times it is not too bad. I found that the diposable picks helped me in 2 situations where the patrolling guard would come around too quickly. If you aren't very proficient with the regular picks, the disposables get you in fast.
