"Pickpocket all the guards to take out power to the printing press security."
— In-Game Description


Pickpocket the guards of their keys to take out the power to the security systems that are around the printing press area.

  • Pickpocket all the guards
  • Use keys to Shut Down Fans
  • Climb Fans and Kill the Power

How to Complete

Once you reach the mission marker, Sly will open a door and go inside. Upon getting inside, take one step forward. Once that is done, Bentley will contact Sly and show him the power boxes that route to the printing press area. He says you will need to put a splice clip in the spotlights in order for him to take out the boxes. Sly tells Bentley he can't do that right now as the fans around the area are moving way too fast to walk on. Bentley tells you that you can slow them down with a nearby control panel, but you will need to do a lot of pickpocketing first. Your current job is to get the keys to the control panel in order to turn off the fans. The guards are carrying the keys, but these keys are special keys that will be destroyed if you attack. He will then tell Sly that he needs to make sure that he gets the keys from the guards first before he takes them out.

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 the circle button to use the keys to unlock the locks. This will turn off the fans. Bentley states to Sly it looks like the fans have stopped and that means Sly can use the fans to get on top of the main chandelier and insert the splice clip. 

Use the fans as platforms, so you can easily get to the top of the main chandelier. 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. After finishing, Bentley states that should do it as there will now be no more security in the printing press room. Once the cutscene is over, it's job complete.
