Just wait until the door is unlocked (you might have to disarm the bomb first?).

Should be able to. I think you only lose karma for picking his lock. There is a way to get onto his roof and go through the hatch up there which I believe is unlocked and therefore no karma loss.

Though the karma loss is so insignificant it can't actually affect you. Karma changes up or down every 250 points or something like that. So if you lose 5 from a single lockpick, who cares?

Just wait until Lucas Simms is home, then walk inside. There's NO way to get the one in Arefu without a karma hit, though. On the bright side, the karma loss is so very minor I doubt you'll even notice.

I didn't lose Karma for picking the lock, just make sure you're hidden. And it is not actually considered stealing to take the bobblehead. Even if you do lose some for opening the door, it's not much.

The strength bobblehead.. is that in the Mayor of Megatons house?
If it is then im sure his door is open when he is inside and when he is on his way to his house.
I took the bobblehead when he was standing on his balcony overlooking Megaton. No bad karma nor nuffink squire.

When I die, I want to go peacefully like my Grandfather did, in his sleep -- not screaming, like the passengers in his car.

blah I don't have the lock picking skill to pick it. Any idea when he is at his house? I keep fast fowarding time and I never see him in his house.

I told Simms about Burke wanting to blow up Megaton. He went to arrest Burke, Burke killed him. I looted his body and took the key to his house. No karma loss.

lmao I just did that but that doesn't work because I got a message saying that I can no longer get a reward for saving Megaton after Simms is called so I don't want to take that option. I reloaded the game.
